Nox Player Not Working

Due to certain glitches in the software, the Nox App Player application may not work. There are many reasons for the software to fail. One of the main reasons is the automatic download of certain files that have malicious content when you install it from third-party websites and not the official website of Nox. More often than not, these malware piggyback on the authentic software and get downloaded.

This results in severe security concerns to the main software as well as the PC itself. The NoxPlayer being popular, miscreants often attach one or more malware to the base of the software. This is one of the main reasons why the Nox application doesn’t work and crashes the instant it is downloaded.

Also, due to the background processes which run, the operating system doesn’t send the status of the progress bar at regular intervals of time. Another main reason for this problem to occur is the different computers that are being used.

The developers may have run the codes on their computers and the software would have run perfectly without any glitches. But when downloaded on a user’s PC, it may create some problems due to different hardware and OS.

One of the best solutions to tackle the 99% problem is to enable Virtualization Technology, also known as VT.

First of all, the BIOS type must be checked, and further, the VT can be enabled accordingly by searching the internet for the specific steps. Also, changing the file name from FAT32 to NTFS will enable the uninterrupted download of the application.

The FAT32 has a size limit of a single file and hence it restricts the download. The problem may also arise due to the graphics card that is present in the system. If it is less than 2.0, then it must be changed immediately to solve Nox stuck at 99% issue.
