### OVS - Extension not active

Hello,

I've been trying the latest OVS beta version 2.9 for the last few days and tried it among others OVN. The last time I tried it I had to get it to work, but then I noticed that there were bluescreens during network traffic. Thereupon I installed the last released version again. But since no network access was possible here with OVN, I installed the beta version again.

But now the ovs-vsctl commands are no longer able to create or delete bridges. Error in the log:

2019-01-02T08:54:38.972Z|00016|netlinksocket|ERR|fcntl: The system cannot find the specified file. 2019-01-02T08:54:38.972Z|00017|dpif|WARN|failed to create datapath ovs-system: Invalid argument 2019-01-02T08:54:38.972Z|00018|ofprotodpif|ERR|failed to open datapath of type system: Invalid argument 2019-01-02T08:54:38.972Z|00019|ofproto|ERR|failed to open datapath br-pif: Invalid argument 2019-01-02T08:54:38.972Z|00020|bridge|ERR|failed to create bridge br-pif: Invalid argument

When I look at the Switch extension, I get a warning that the extension is not working properly and I should check the EventLog. But there is nothing to find.

In PowerShell the extension is displayed as not running:

Any idea?
