    Is this possible without Microsoft Loopbackadapter?
    Because I have troubles installing the Microsoft Loopbackadapter.
    Thanks for your hints and kind regards

    Unfortunately not.

    What trouble are you having installing the loopback? You only install
    it on the host.

  3. either when I use "add new hardware" and choose the "MS loopbackadapter" a
    device called "Net" is installed - a waiting loop starts while nothing more
    is done - after that the device is being removed.
    otherwise, if I install the "MS loopbackadapter" with the DevCon tool a
    device called "*msloop" is being installed but with no driver and it's not
    working afterwards.

    You have me lost a bit, the device "Net" is confusing.

    When I add the loopback adapter in Vista,

    First "Add Hardware" from control panel -> "next" button -> Select
    "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced)"
    -> "Next" button" -> Select "Network adapters" in the list" -> "Next"
    button -> Select "Microsoft" in the manufacturers list -> Select
    "Microsoft Loopback Adapter" in the Network adapter list -> "Next"
    button -> Then it says "Hardware to install" "Microsoft Loopback
    Adapter" "To start installing your hardware, click Next." -> "Next"
    button -> "Finish" button.

    If that doesn't work as described, I suppose you may have another
    loopback type adapter's driver already installed and it's confusing
    the installer. Not sure what it could be.
