Error setting up host only network on machine start

Hi, I’m trying to get Local 2.2.3 working on my Windows 10 but I get this error:

“Error creating machine: Error in driver during machine creation: Error setting up host only network on machine start: The host-only adapter we just created is not visible. This is a well known VirtualBox bug. You might want to uninstall it and reinstall at least version 5.0.12 that is is supposed to fix this issue”

Looking at the logs, I find this:

I tried to uninstall & reinstall but nothing & I have tried everything I have found online to fix this, but nothing seems to work. Has anyone figured this out?

Thanks

Hi @Julien1,

Sorry for the hiccup with VirtualBox! Please try the steps here to re-install/update VirtualBox: How can I manually update VirtualBox?

Once you do that, try re-opening Local.

I tried to reinstall virtualbox over time but it’s still occur.
