Thank you for the hint,
There is some documentation for the packing, if for eg i want to change some implementation in v box or add a new feature/ add a new dll?
thank you

Are you running comregister.cmd as Admin? If you don't then it can't make the necessary changes to the registry. In general I don't think anyone routinely uses your approach to build vbox on one PC to move it to another. It doesn't need much more time to create an installation package using "kmk packing", and use that to install vbox...


still does not work
