I see the following error dialog after starting VirtualBox in Applications:

to start. The application will now terminate. Callee RC: 0x80004005

I am running as an Admin user on a MacBook

I do not see any other logs associated with VirtualBox on my machine. Does anyone have any ideas? Let me know if you need anymore information.

I reinstalled the application several times.

Apple's user license agreements forbid the use of Mac OS X (but not Darwin as that is Open Source) on non-Apple hardware.

markb: have you tried reinstalling VirtualBox (just the application, without deleting your virtual machines) as per ?

Nutznbolts: I am running Mac OS X Leopard on a MacBook.

Michael: I've re-installed the package many times.
