    Anand did you follow the VirtualBox install guide at

    If you did and are still seeing problems, we would need more specific information to understand what the problem you’re seeing is.

    Thanks. I am able to run the .OVA file. It is getting struck at the last step of the installation.I am using google chrome web browser. when i enter the ip address i am unable to connect. Do i need to use internet for the ip access. Also when i use ALT+F5 in the final step and enter the login and password i am unable to get the access to the sandbox.
    Please advise on next steps

    it is not clear from your post what IP address you entering.
    Also, what username/password do you use to login to the sandbox?
    Please, explain.

    Thank you!
