Failed to start the virtual machine FreeBSD

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -





I have been using Virtualbox for quite some time now. I use it to run my Linux system over my Windows 7 system. Yesterday I tried to upgrade my system to the latest version. Now Virtualbox keeps on producing an error message which I took a screen shot of it.

How should I fix this error?

Should I rollover my current update/upgrade of my operating system?

I have seen this issue very few times and it usually happens when user has installed / updated Virtual box but for some reasons some of its files in user profile were left without Administrative privileges. 

So to solve this issue what you need to do is:

  1. Open command prompt
  2. Go to a folder in your system like "C:USERS<username>AppDataLocalVirtualStoreProgram Files"
  3. Execute " rmdir /s Oracle"

Now the Virtual box will create and deal with new files that are accessible by it.
