Stuck on Checking System-win 7

Every time I install local Flywheel it starts and then it stayed at checking system. Below is my log file. I heard so much about Flywheel and really wanted to try it out. but can’t get it to start.
I have Windows 7, dual-core Pentium, and 4 GB of ram.

Hi Alan,

Sorry for the trouble!

Can you please try manually installing VirtualBox? Once it installs, try relaunching Local.

Here’s the direct download link for VirtualBox v5.1.30:

Wow, talk about a quick reply. Thanks! Hey, Clay, I already downloaded VirtualBox and install it before I install Flywheel. I have the lasted version. Thanks again.

It was stuck on checking system and I went in and click on restart local machine and that is where it is stuck at now. it just will not go any further

Is VirtualBox installed on your C:\ drive?

Yes, it is. I am downloading version 2.1.1 and uninstall the old ver and installing this one. It said that it will stop the checking system. I will let you know

didn’t work

Hi Alan,

I apologize for not providing this path earlier. Can you verify that C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe exists?

Hi Clay, I uninstall both VirtualBox and Flywheel and rebooted the computer. I then reinstall flywheel and it is stuck at checking system. I look under the c:/program folder and didn’t see VirtualBox install. I will install it manually and then restart Flywheel. I will tell you this. I have a small Tablet/laptop with Windows 10 and only a 13 inch screen. I install flywheel by itself and everything works like a champ. I would love to get it working on this laptop which has a 17 inch screen.

Well, I install VirtualBox and restarted Flywheel and it is still Checking System.
I check program file and I do have VirtualBox install to the C;/ drive.
I am uploading the Log file again, plus some Pictures. i hope you can help me get this up and runn

ing on my Windows 7 laptop.

I guess you can’t help me with this install on Windows 7

Hi there,

Could you restart your machine, then reinstall local. Once its opened, please check if VirtualBox has a new machine in the list.

It may also be worth checking if your computer supports virtualization, could you post a screenshot of the application CPU-Z running on your computer?
