docker Failed to create the host-only adapter Windows 7

I am trying to install/run docker.

When running the docker quickstart terminal I run into the following error message:

  • GAE Managed VMs - can't deploy if your project name is too long
  • Docker container unable to resolve localhost
  • Configuring Couchbase connection ports through their Node.js API [Docker]
  • Docker with a new nameserver
  • Docker is installed but Docker Compose is not ? why?
  • Colon at the beginning of line in docker entrypoint bash script [duplicate]
  • Machine default already exists in VirtualBox.
    Starting machine default...
    Error setting up host only network on machine start: C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe hostonlyif create failed:
    Progress state: E_FAIL
    VBoxManage.exe: error: Failed to create the host-only adapter
    VBoxManage.exe: error: Could not find Host Interface Networking driver! Please reinstall
    VBoxManage.exe: error: Details: code E_FAIL (0x80004005), component HostNetworkInterfaceWrap, interface IHostNetworkInterface
    VBoxManage.exe: error: Context: "enum RTEXITCODE __cdecl handleCreate(struct HandlerArg *)" at line 71 of file VBoxManageHostonly.cpp
    Looks like something went wrong... Press any key to continue...

    The closest thing I could find on the network related to antivirus problems. I have Symantec Endpoint Protection, which I cannot disable. So hopefully you could provide some ideas that don’t touch this 🙂

    Otherwise I can create a VM that is working using an ubuntu ISO.

    docker-machine version: 0.5.4, build 6643d0e and seems to be working.

    curl is working and I files downloaded, i.e. the internet connection cannot be the problem…

    I don’t know what to do and where to look…

    Thx for any suggestions.

    There are several solutions i found, even if you have more than one connection like me the solution is the first answer here:

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
