Did you (re)register the COM component from the debug directory?
The VirtualBox3 is only the user interface, the functionality is provided by
You need to make sure VBox is not longer running (check for VBoxSVC in the task
manager, kill it if still running after closing the frontend and all machines
and waiting a few secs).
You need to run comregister.cmd from the debug/bin directory, and possible
SUPUninstall.exe and SUPInstall.exe
