NCS on Windows 10 (with VirtualBox)

Is NCS now supported on Linux virtual machine? My host OS is Windows 10, and I having problems with NCS USB communication within VirtualBox.

 

Any best-known-methods for running NCS on VirtualBox on Windows10 OS?

I followed these steps as is. Didnt work for me. Did it work for you? How did you do it??

 

I get the error message, "Error - no NCS devices detected, verify an NCS device is connected".

@davenso, can you confirm you set the USB filters in your VM?

 

`You will need to select USB 3.0 and create two filters:

 

     

  • USB2 filter with vendor ID 03e7 and product ID 2150
  •  

  • USB3 filter with vendor ID 040e and product ID f63b`
  •  

 

Run dmesg | grep "Movidius" on a terminal within your Ubuntu VM and check if you see the Movidius USB being enumerated. If you do not see it, then something's wrong with the VM USB filters. If you do see Movidius being enumerated, please post the entire log from your terminal window when you get the error message.

 

NOTE: Physical hardware access are always tricky on VMs. If you can dual boot your machine with Ubuntu 16.04, I would highly recommend doing that. There have been quite a bit of discussions on this forum around VM installation, most of them have been successful in tweaking their VMs to make NCS work, I recommend you go through those posts as well for pointers.

I tried to, but the VM now causes my computer to crash and restart. I have swtiched to using a Linux-based IoT board for this purpose, but I hit a [snag ]((https://ncsforum.movidius.com/discussion/442/error-on-make-install-sed-couldnt-open-temporary-file-s... "snag ")so I am looking further. :neutral:

Hi,

 

If this helps anyone using the NCS with VB and Windows 10

 

Windows 10 1709 16299.309, Virtualbox 5.2.8, ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS

 

I have two NCS devices plugged into a USB 3 hub. The hub is connected to a USB-C with no additional power.

 

The USB settings in VB - I found the following work just fine and have not encounted any issues with them.

 

USB3 xHCI controller with two device filters. The one set to 03E7:2150 and the other to 03E7:F63B. The same VIDs for both is not an error, it does work. These differ from what other people have suggested. They do work as indicated in the screenshots below.

 

The USB settings:

I have tested every example in the SDK and and the zoo and they all pretty much work - had to eventually buy a 2nd NCS to get the multi device example to work.
