Errors Starting Local by Flywheel

Local By FlywheelI fired up Local by Flywheel again recently to test some changes to a plugin; as it started I received a series of errors:

Error message

Unable to start the VM: C:Program FilesOracleVirtualBoxVBoxManage.exe startvm local-by-flywheel --type headless failed:

Seeing the references to Hyper-V in the second and fourth error messages reminded me that I’d needed to stop Hyper-V before installing Local by Flywheel.

I stopped it running, rebooted the PC and was able to start Local by Flywheel without further issue.

What should we write about next?
