virtualbox fails open session with verr nem map pages failed

Approach to solve 

To solve the below error I tried the following ways.

NEM failed to map page(s) into the VM. (VERR_NEM_MAP_PAGES_FAILED).
Result Code:
E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component:
ConsoleWrap
Interface:
IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

1: Go to control panel and search for “Turn Windows features on or off” and open.

2: And make sure, the following features are unchecked: “Windows Sandbox” and “Hyper-V

3: Now, restart your machine and check if that solves the Virtual Box error.

4: If it still does not work, try unchecking the following feature option too from “Turn Windows features on or off” as shown in the picture below.

Turn Windows Features On or Off VERR_NEM_MAP_PAGES_FAILED

5: Now, restart again the error should go away.

Note: It worked for me after I unchecked “Virtual Machine Platform” from Windows features in Windows 10 Enterprise.

Therefore, in order to run virtualization application or software you may need to disable some windows features. Because virtualization software will not work together with Hyper-V and Virtual Machine Platform.

Hope this helped 🙂
