I am trying to install a virtual network adapter on my HP notebook tx2550ee. The error message I am getting is error 31. The creation of virtual network adapter failed. Any advice. Thanks.

What is the exact text of the error message you're getting? When I google "The creation of virtual network adapter failed" nothing comes up except this post so I assume that's not the exact error message, but if I know what it is I might be able to help you find a solution.

It would also be helpful to know which version of VirtualBox you're using (you can find out by going to Help>About VirtualBox in the main window), and the output of the commands "ifconfig" and "ifconfig -a"

Than you very much pytheas22 . The message was the exact. It was my stupidity. I found that I forgot to reboot my machine. Once I rebooted it problem was resolved. Thank you very much indeed for trying to solve my problem. regards
