Still that silly VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED error in 2.0.2

I published this issue already some months ago after 2.0.0 was published. I feel disappointed bacause this issue was not solved in 2.0.2. After upgrading to 2.0.2 I still get that annoying message VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED.

I would have expected this error beeing resolved in 2.0.2.

I had good experiences with VirtualBox in the past. But now I feel very disappoionted.

Please fix this error as soon as possible. I'm not the only one struggling with this complaint.

I am getting this error on Windows Vista with VirtualBox 2.0.4 - there is no information in the FAQ regarding this, that might be nice to have something like a faq question for this since I see there are lots of Google hits for this problem.

The solution for me was to make sure I was running the right version of VirtualBox. I had downloaded, but not installed, the latest version. Once I installed the latest version, things worked as planned.
