When starting the Sailfish emulator via the 'QTCreator it always quits with a failure. Unfortunately it does not show what the problem is. "Error connecting to "SailfishOS Emulator" virtual machine: Failed to start virtual machine "SailfishOS Emulator"'

I wonder a little bit, as the sailfish emulator does start up, when starting it manual via the virtual box. Does anybody have an idea? Which log file shows the details of such starting script?

what operating system are you running?

If using windows have a look at the environnement variable VBOX_MSI_INSTALL_PATH. Have you try to reinstall SDK?

Windows 8, vbox variable is set. Have not tried to reinstall.

are you using a local account or a windows store account login. Apparently that makes a difference :/

Using local account and re-installation of SDK was successful! /Marian
