Do you run any other virtualization software in parallel? VirtualPC/ XP Mode ?

Too long ago,

I am not really sure, wether we tried VMLight before or after Virtualbox. If before, we deinstalled it, I can assure you. We didnt run both simultaneously.

But its too long ago now to tell the installation order VMLight or Virtualbox.

Thank you for your interest. juergen

I have the same problem...

"Cannot access kernel driver"

I installed the latest version of VirtualBox, (no errors) when I try to create a new Virtual Machine I get this error "Cannot access kernel driver"

when I boot the same Computer with Ubuntu... VirtualBox works fine. So I think Hardware is OK

what can I do now??
