With Local by Flywheel I made only bad experiences so far. With the knowledge that this program cannot be installed on Windows 10. Therefore I did my local Wordpress installation with Wamp.
Today I have received the mail with the introduction of Local Pro. Now I thought to myself, if Flywheel introduces such a project and is looking for new customers, this company has certainly revised the software it makes available to interested parties and corrected the errors in the Local by Flywheel Installer for Windows.
In the hope that everything will be all right now, I decided to try Local by Flywheel again. I downloaded local-by-flywheel-3-3-0-windows.exe and tried to install (Windows 10). The installation of the Oracle VirtualBox and the Local Machine worked without any error messages.
After this procedure Local by Flywheel should start. Now this program has got problems and has shown the following 6 errors until the end, i.e. until the forced abort with the Windows Task Manager:
Error Message 1: Unable to Start VM. Even though the file exists in the listed directory and there are no access restrictions! Why does this error message appear? startvm local-by-flywheel --type headless failed: is displayed
Error message 2: VBoxManager.exe error: Could not open the medium
The program looks for the file disk.vmdk to open it. This file is not present in the listed directory (.docker\machine\machines\local-by-flywheel)! Why is this file missing? It’s amazing that in a new version such a thing can happen during the development and packing of the installer.
Error message 3: VBoxManager.exe error: VD: error VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND
VBoxManager.exe tries to open the missing file disk.vmdk (see comment to error 2).
Error Message 4: VBoxManager.exe error: Details: Error Messages
VBoxManager.exe displays the errors when trying to start the local machine in detail.
Error message 5: Indicates that local by flywheel encountered an error when trying to start the local machine.
Error message 6: Confirms the statement in error message 5! However, displays more detailed error codes for your developers of local by flywheel windows!
VBox.log (917 Bytes)
Here is the log file of my Local by Flywheel installation
I would now be grateful if someone could help me to give me hints so that I could perform my installation without errors.
