I have recently bought a desktop PC with Windows 8 on-board, and one of the first programs I installed was Virtualbox.
But unfortunately I’ve got a famous error ‘VirtualBox – Error in supR3HardenedWinReSpawn’ when running any virtual machine. In my case it was NtCreateFile error.
Forums said that the error was introduced somewhere at version 4.3.14 and had to be fixed in later builds (current build is 4.3.28), but in the latest version I still observe the error.
Unfortunately, after some time Windows installed the update again, so I had to turn the automatic updates off.
What I tried and what did NOT help:
- Playing with VirtualBox settings.
- Downgrading to VirtualBox 4.2.* where some security features are not present yet.
Hope this helps someone.
Even better solution would be to use Linux 🙂
