VboxManager corrupts VirtualBox

Reported by: wlroberts Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 1.6.0 Keywords: VboxManager corrupts VirtualBox
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other


I ran "VBoxManage list usbhost" from the command line. It returned: [!] FAILED calling Host->GetUSBDevices(CollPtr.asOutParam()) at line 2794! [!] Primary RC = 0x80004001 [!] Full error info present: false, basic error info present: false

Now, when I try to start VirtualBox, I get the following critical error: Failed to create the VirtualBox COM object. Callee RC: 0x80040154

Uninstalling and re-installing VirtualBox has no effect: the same error occurs. My host system in Mandriva Linux 2008.1

You are using the OSE version, right?

0x80004001 is NS_ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED, and indeed the OSE version doesn't provide USB support (yet).

The rest is most likely unrelated to the above error but there is not enough information. 0x80040154 is NS_ERROR_FACTORY_NOT_REGISTERED which means that the VirtualBox object cannot be instantiated for some reason (it may be due to missing libraries, or some permission problem).

You can try going to the VirtualBox installation directory and try to run VBoxSVC manually using the following command in the terminal to see if it works:
