What is the simplest way to run RouterOS on windows? Which hypervisor can be running in portable mode? I tried Virtualbox portable, but it failes to run, at least on one my Win 7 machine, Any advises?
Really in VirtualBox was a configuration feature - run without network ) Everything works fine. Simplest way is a VirtualBox portableI'd say that the simplest way is to just use regular VirtualBox or VMware Player installation. RouterOS works with both. But if your heart is set on portable mode...
I'm not sure what's the advantage, I've found some portable VirtualBox and it says that it needs admin rights to install some services and drivers anyway. But I guess you have your reasons.
Did you try regular VirtualBox at least once, to make sure that it's not just configuration mistake, which has nothing to do with portable mode?
I got OVF and imported the machine. Anyway, the problem was because the network is switched off by defaultJust make sure (and this is super important) to use CHR Install file, not the X86 ISO. Only CHR supports virtual machines:
