Cannot access the kernel driver after upgrading (Windows host)

Description (last modified by pentagonik) (diff)
on Windows XP SP3 host and Ubuntu 9.04 I had VirtualBox 2.2.2 working well without any problem.
Then I did the following:
- shutdown virtual guest
- installed VirtualBox 2.2.4 over the existing installation.
- rebooted Windows host
- opened VirtualBox GUI
- deleted all VirtualBox log files to make sure there is no errors in logs.
- selected Ubuntu guest and clicked Start button from tools bar menu.
The error displayed: "Cannot access the kernel driver! Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully." Then only Abort button available and click on it displayed error: "Failed to open a session for the virtual machine..."
See attached pictures to the forum: http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=18369
I have checked the log files but there was no log file created! Very strange.
Has anyone got the same problem?
