Guest Addition installation on w2k - VBoxService.exe error opening file for writing

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Just upgraded from VirtualBox 1.6.4 to 1.6.6 on OpenSuSE 10.3 using the RPM's from website. Upgrade went fine until installed guest additions (guest is windows 2000). Installer threw this error:

"Error opening file for writing:
C:\WINNT\system32\VBoxService.exe"
Abort / Retry / Ignore

Clicked Retry a couple times, no change - Clicked Ignore, install finished, rebooted, tried installing again, same error.

So far this doesn't seem to have caused any issues that I know of though.

Let me know if additional information (logs / specs / etc) needed.

  • Keywords windows 2000 VBoxService.exe "Error opening file for writing" removed
  • Host type changed from Linux to other
  • Description modified (diff)

It seems that the upgrade was not successful and your guest probably executes parts of the old guest additions. Please could you retry the setup and specify the command line parameter /l? After that, please attach the resulting log file in

c:\Program Files\Sun\...\*.log

to this ticket.
