Oracle vm virtual box error with missing dll files

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


During the install of Oracle VM Virtual Box this error appeared. I don’t why the iphlpsvc.dll is missing since the installer is downloaded from a trusted source and is compatible with my Windows XP. Can anyone help me please to fix this error ? Is there a chance to install Virtual Box properly ?

Thank you !

The application “iphlpsvc.dll ” needs to be closed for the installation to continue

Oracle vm virtual box error with missing dll files



“iphlpsvc.dll” is related to IP service of your PC. VirtualBox installs some drivers related to internet and possibly the process is being conflicted with the DLL file. In order to stop the file from being accessed,

1. Start Command Prompt.

2. Run the following command:
sc stop iphlpsvc


This will stop the “iphlpsvc” service that was accessing the DLL file. Then, complete the installation.

After installation is complete, start Command Prompt again and run the following command:
sc start iphlpsvc

This will start the service again.

In order to be more secure, you should download the latest VirtualBox setup. Download VirtualBox.
