Flywheel stuck at starting local machine

Good day after a new windows update flywheel has been unable to start the virtual machine.
Any suggestions on how to get this running again?
The biggest issue I can see in the logs is :

Here is my full log

@yodasoda,

Can you please provide the contents of C:\Users\jancl\.docker\machine\machines\local-by-flywheel\local-by-flywheel\Logs\VBoxHardening.log?

Sorry for the trouble!

No trouble at all!
Thank you for the help :slight_smile:

Hmm, based off of that log it looks like there might be some issues with the VirtualBox executables.

I would try running the VirtualBox installer yourself. It should patch up anything wrong it. Here’s the direct download link: http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/5.1.30/VirtualBox-5.1.30-118389-Win.exe

I am experiencing this problem as well. Flywheel is stuck at the “Starting Local Machine” screen. I have tried restarting local machine. I have also tried rebooting my computer. I am running Flywheel 2.0.8 on Mac OS 10.13.1.

Here is my error log:

Thanks, Clay, you are a legend that sorted my problem out.

I’m also having the same problem. I’m not able reinstall Virtual Box for some reason as it leads to a BSOD.

Sukanya,

If possible, can you snap a picture of the BSOD and post it here?

Sorry for the trouble!
