This issue may happen on virtual machines. On some cases NeoLoad is able to detect that it's a virtual machine and in that case it does not allow the installation of the WAN driver.

The fact that the machine crashed seems to indicate that you are on a virtual machine. Could you confirm?

We know that some Amazon machines could have such behavior. But it may depend on the OS.

The issue is not with the installation process but the fact that your machine can't have the driver. So even if you try different installation method it will probably lead to the same result.

Well it's not an answer but I have ran into similar situation where I have made fresh installation of Neoload 7.0 and it has not installed WAN emulation. Even If I tried manual install of the module from C:\Program Files\NeoLoad 7.0\tools\ipfw\win64_wlh it installed successfully but Neoload doesn't recognize it. I'm running it on Windows Server 2016 x64 OS. Strangely I have a similar VM running same OS and it's working there with a standard installation. How do I explain this?

Be careful on Windows 2016 there's no installation of the WAN driver since there's no such driver anymore. Ipfw is only used for older Windows versions and not for recent ones like 2016, 10 etc...

NeoLoad now uses windivert as WAN emulation tool that does not require any installation. If WAN status is not enabled then it might be a signature issue or you may have an anti-virus that is blocking the loading of that file or worst it has removed it. Please look at the <install_dir>\lib\x64\ folder if you do have a Windivert64.sys file.

If you do have that file then right mouse click on it to display the properties and check if the signature status is valid.
