I see the following error dialog after starting VirtualBox in Applications:
Failed to initialize COM or find the VirtualBox COM server. Most likely, the VirtualBox server is not running or failed 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.
