This affects users using VirtualBox. In recent weeks, Microsoft had been working with Oracle on the bug that could occur when switching to Windows 11 in connection with VirtualBox. The error affected the installation of Hyper-V or the Windows hypervisor, causing errors and startup errors with virtual machines. Now there is a solution, with which nothing stands in the way of an update. Microsoft has now also lifted the latest existing Windows 11 upgrade lock.
After VirtualBox update, it works
An upgrade block used to prevent users from upgrading to Windows 11 to protect their systems from potential issues. In this case, it was software instability caused by compatibility issues between Windows and VirtualBox. “Oracle fixed this issue in VirtualBox 6.1.28 and later. To unlock the security lock on your device, you must upgrade to VirtualBox 6.1.28 or later,” Microsoft explained in a note added to the Windows Health Dashboard over the weekend. week.
It goes on to say, “Please note that it may take up to 48 hours before the update to Windows 11, version 21H2 is offered if no other protection measures affect your device.”
After starting Windows 11, some VirtualBox users complained of problems. When attempting to update affected systems, they received the message “VirtualBox. Your PC requires the latest version of this application. Please click More Info for more information on how to update this application.” By the way, this affected not only users who use VirtualBox consciously, but also users who have applications based on VirtualBox or who have integrated VirtualBox in their installation.
