Hey all, one of the feedback forms from the hands-on lab I presented about remote debugging indicated that you'd like to hear more information about how to use the Microsoft Loopback Adapter that I used to mimic a LAN connection within the local machine to connect the development OS to the virtual machine. Here are the steps I used to setup the loopback adapter. I am going to see about creating a more formal tip article for this and post it somewhere on MSDN's embedded site also. Please send me any feedback about whether or not this set of steps ends up working for you.....
Installing Microsoft Loopback Adapter
Now that you have installed the Microsoft Loopback Adapter, you need to configure an IP address for it.
Configuring Microsoft Loopback Adapter
Now you can disable your current LAN connection and enable your Microsoft Loopback Adapter connection by right-clicking on each connection in the Network Connections control panel and choosing Enable or Disable.
Unfortunately the first part:
Go to the Add Hardware control panel
Click Next on the first wizard screen
When asked if the hardware is connected, select Yes and click Next
In the list of installed hardware, scroll to the bottom and select Add a new hardware device and click Next
Choose the option titled Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced) and click Next
In the list of common hardware types, select Network adapters and click Next
In the list of manufacturers, select Microsoft. Then in the list of network adapters, select Microsoft Loopback Adapter and click Next
Click Next one more time to install the Microsoft Loopback Adapter and then press Finish
doesn't work for me.
After the timeout I got an error message that the driver couldn't be installed. No other hint about the problem.
Could you please help me?
Thanks and kind regards
Hi Memphisto007 - I'm sorry, but I didn't run into any errors or time outs back when I wrote these instructions. I'm not sure what to suggest to try to troubleshoot this issue. You may want to start by looking in the event logs on your system to see if there are any useful errors listed there that can help you get started troubleshooting.
I'm sorry I'm not able to be more helpful in this scenario.
