WinDev in Virtual Machine

Startbeitrag von JP am 24.08.2015 15:39

Hi All

Has anyone tried to run WinDev inside a VirtualBox Virtual Machine (running Windows 7) for example? Is it possible?



yes it works. You have to setup the virtualbox to "OWN" the usb port where the windev dungle is, that's all

Best regards

Hi Fabrice

Thanks for the reply. I have been struggling with this for 2 days now. Can you elaborate further on how to "own" the USB port?

I am using VirtualBox 5 (latest version). Using Linux host. Windows 7 guest OS. I have set the VirtualBox Guest to use USB2 and added filters under the USB tab for the hasp dongle. Is there something else I need to do to make the guest OS "own" the USB port?

In case of Linux Host does it detect the Dongle?

- Plugin your USB Dongle to your PC/Laptop
- Start VB, select your VM.
- Click on Settings Button on top
- In Settings select USB
- Here add the USB device (your dongle) and close/save the Dialogbox.

The problem I was having was that trying to install the HASP drivers in the Windows 7 guest under Linux Mint host caused a blue screen - Windows crashing. No matter whether I allowed Windows Update to install the drivers or I manually tried to install the drivers Windows would crash. This was under VirtualBox 5.

I then decided to try the VMWare Workstation software and it all worked perfectly first time. VMWare is not free but is very slick and professional and powerful. USB support is very good.
