It seems like this is a common issue -- I've been fighting with it and trying to understand and get it going for a few days now. I wanted to share a few links to people talking about the issue. It seems that for some reason Microsoft is allocating an additional 8kb of memory for each of these dll sections - not only for this DLL, but for the others. I had the same issue trying to run Minikube and even just calling VBoxManage or VBoxHeadless directly.

What I want to know is: Is this due to a feature I have enabled on my installation or possibly to how VBoxManage and VBoxHeadless are loading these DLLs? Is there something I can do to change how the DLLs get loaded so that they don't include this additional 8kb of memory that VirtualBox seems to be upset with? If there is not, can someone provide some information on why this is so that we can work with VirtualBox to get it working on this build of Windows?

I would be happy to try anything anyone wants me to try or report back on, since I've got the issue on my machine (also Windows 11 Pro Insider)

- Points out the 8kb difference:
