Problems installing Virtual Machine on Windows


#1

I’m trying to use ChipWhisperer on virtual machine, I have downloaded VMware Workstation 15 player (Windows), VirtualBox Extension Pack and:

  • chipwhisperer_source_code-5-1-1.zip
  • chipwhisperer-5.1.1.zip
  • Virtual.Machine.ChipWhisperer.Jupyter-5-1-1.zip

However, I’m having trouble finding the virtual machine to use in VMware. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi, we recommend using VirtualBox instead of VMware.
Unzip Virtual.Machine.ChipWhisperer.Jupyter-5-1-1.zip. You do not need the other two zip files listed.
Then follow the directions here:

Thank you for the reply, I have started the virtual machine and have successfully changed the password as mentioned in the link, however when I reebooted the VM, it’s still in the headless state not GUI. Help please.

The CW5 VM is only running the Jupyter server; you’re meant to run the client on the host side, not in the VM.
So on your host machine, browse to localhost:8888.
