Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment


Genymotion is giving me this error after the Windows 10 upgrade:

Unable to load virtual box engine

How to fix this?

How to&Answers:

I solved this issue. It’s working fine now.

I’m using:

+ Window 10
+ VirtualBox-5.0.2-102096-Win
+ Genymotion-2.5.3

Step 1: We should set Run as this program as an administrator & Compatibility mode Window 7 for those file.

C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox
    + VBoxHeadless.exe
    + VBoxManage.exe
    + VirtualBox.exe
C:\Program Files\Genymobile\Genymotion
    + genymotion.exe

Step 2: My Computer -> Manage-> Device Manager-> Network adapters

Remove all items with name: VirtualBox Host-Only Ethenet Adapter #…

Step 3: Open Virtual Box and go to File -> Preferences -> Network -> Host Only Networks

Remove all and create new host with information:

Adapter Tab:
    IPv4 Address:
    IPv4 Network Mask:
DHCP Server Tab:
    Server Address:
    Server Mask:
    Lower Address Bound:
    Upper Address Bound:

Step 4: Run Genymotion again. It’s will work.

I used to have the same issue. I’ve download VirtualBox 5 an reinstall it (or repair) over the old install. Reboot and that’s it.


Worked for me:

-Changed Network on VB to HOST ONLY

-Changed on Win 10 network configuration to obtain dynamic IP


1.Remember machine images’ paths/locations in VirtualBox. Bakup them.

2.Go to
[enter link description here][1]http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2087-hyper-v-virtualization-setup-use-windows-10-a.html

Only part two.Follow those instructions.

3.remove machines from VirtualBox(but dont check ‘delete files’). Remove adapters from ‘network adapters’ in device manager. Thier name starts with ‘Virtual…’.

Close VirtualBox.

  1. start genymotion.

Will work.


After Windows Anniversary update Genymotion stopped working,

It always raised an error dialog saying (not exact but something like this) “Failed to start the virtual machine, Please start Virtual box to see the error details“.

I had tried many solutions some of them were saying open Virtual box and make some changes to it, but my issue was Virtual box itself was not starting up explicitly,

I had observed that process starts up and gets killed after few seconds, Then I realized, the problem is actual with a virtual machine.

And when I was looking for it I came across this thread which says there is Bug in the virtual box, just download and install the latest setup file for a Virtual box. Thereafter at least you will be able to start the virtual machine,
