HP Network Simulator cannot detect latest Oracle VirtualBox

I am trying out the HP Network Simulator, apparently comware not procurve, so I downloaded and installed the latest version 7.1.5.

I already had VirtualBox latest and updated as I am running plenty of VMs as well, leaving me with version 4.3.20.

While the install of HP Network Simulator went fine, it kept complaining about not being able to find VirtualBox on my machine.

I eventually found out that it is looking for an environment variable that 4.3.20 doesn’t include anymore.

So if you had the “VBOX_INSTALL_PATH” variable into your system variable, you will be fine.

Go to System Settings>Advanced>Environment Variables and add the following to the System Variables by clicking on new.


Variable Value:C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\

#detect, #env, #hp, #network, #simulator, #variable, #virtualbox
