[vbox-dev] "Failed to create a session" after building OSE 3.2.6 on WindowsXP SP3

might not be a good idea to mix PUEL and OSE executable.
After OSE binary is built, copy VBoxDrv.sys to c:\windows\system32. and make sure the VBoxDrv service is created in registry.
then run comregister.cmd to register all coms, kill all VBoxSVC.exe processes, just in case it runs from PUEL.
I use VS2005, to compile it, due to those intrinsic conflict errors

Thanks for the reply!

I have followed all the instructions in your wiki, including comregister.cmd,
SUPUninstall and SUPInstall. If there are no problems in my building env, I will
investigate further to find out the root cause.

I have spent two months on VirtualBox development for Linux and have running
MeeGo UX (a mutter plugin) inside VirtualBox successfully with GL acceleration.
Now I switch to Windows, I'd like to know your building env and debugging env.
