APP: Oracle VirtualBox cannot start-up showing error message


If you start Oracle VirtualBox for a virtual Android environment and you get the following error message:

Failed to open/create the internal network 'HostInterfaceNetworking-VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter' (VERR_INTNET_FLT_IF_NOT_FOUND).



VirtualBox Virtual Network adapter isn't compatible in version 5 with some Windows versions.



  • Uninstall Oracle VirtualBox
  • Install from admin command line with an additional parameter:
    -msiparams NETWORKTYPE=NDIS5


Please note: This is not an Anveo Client Suite related issue. But as many Anveo administrators use Oracle VirtualBox for development and testing, we included this topic into our Knowledge Base.
