Error trying to create schematic (Ubuntu running under Win10)

I'm getting the following error trying to create a schematic running on Ubuntu (14.04.5 LTS trusty):
09:05:14: libboost_context.so.1.54.0: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires: Invalid argument
09:05:14: IO_ERROR: Fatal Installation Bug. File:
'/usr/bin/_eeschema.kiface'
could not be loaded
Perhaps a shared library (.dll or .so) file is missing.
From command line: argv[0]:
'/usr/bin/eeschema'
from /build/kicad-I8aRie/kicad-4.0.6+e0/kicad/common/kiway.cpp : KiFACE() : line 225
I tried to attach a screenshot of the error details but it doesn't seem to work (running Chrome). Anyhow, this may be the culprit, but I'm not sure what the problem is... Maybe your tool requires an earlier version?
From the Details section:
libboost_context.so.1.54.0: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires: Invalid argument

Thanks for the query. Just for clarification, by "Ubuntu running under Win10" you mean using VirtualBox? Please correct me if I am wrong?

Any updates?  As mentioned earlier, I'm not using VirtualBox, I'm running Ubuntu on Windows 10 native. For more information, please refer to:

When are you exactly getting this error, is it on clicking the eescheema button? Could you please elaborate on that?

Also could you please check whether the boost libraries are properly installed?

We found that it won't work when run in Ubuntu native under Windows 10. Please install eSim in the machine itself or use a VirtualBox.

Hi...i am a new user here. According to me the active simulation profile refers to other schematic. Not the one you trying to simulate. Try to search the simualiton profiles for the current schematic and make that active with RMB "Make active". All of these can be found in the Pspice resources folder of the Project manager.
