Oracle VM Virtual Box error during the launch

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello experts,

In Oracle VM VirtualBox this error appeared while I was changing some settings and testing some features. I clicked the OK button and it blocked my PC for a while. Can anyone tell me what this error means ? I did something wrong ?

Thank you !

Whonix is a nice OS for security purpose. The error you’re facing is the problem of an older release, nearly v7. You have to download and deploy the latest Whonix to see the result.

1. Download Whonix.
Note that you have to download both “Gateway” and “Workstation” OVA files.

2. Install latest VirtualBox. Download VirtualBox.

3. Install Whonix.

Hope that your problem won’t be present anymore.
