Hi guys, I have being trying to find the solution to this problem I have been having with Virtualbox all over the net but I can't seem to find the answer. Hope you guys can help.

Firstly, here are the details: Host: Windows 7 Graphic Card: ATI Radeon HD 4550 Guest: Ubuntu 10.04 VirtualBox 3.2.6

I have been trying to enable the visual effects in ubuntu and set it to 'extra', but ubuntu keeps on telling me that the 'display effect could not be enabled'. I think the root cause of this problem is that fact that I cannot enable the 2D or the 3D acceleration in VirtualBox 3.2.6. The 2 boxes cannot be ticked; they are greyed out. Does anyone know how I can enable them?

Also everytime I start virtualbox, this error message pops up 'loadlibrary failed with error 126: The specific module could not be found'. After about 10 seconds, it disappears and virtualbox starts up fine. Also the same error message pops up everytime i click on settings in virtualbox.

sorry guys, don't know why two tickets were created.

So any idea of how to fix this problem?

It happens if you, by mistake, clicked twice.

2D/3D support test is done with a separate app, VBoxTestOGL.exe, located in VBox install dir. Please try running

VBoxTestOGL.exe --test 2D --log <log_file_name1>
VBoxTestOGL.exe --test 3D --log <log_file_name2>

and attach the logs here.
If the logs show no error, please, close VBox, define global VBOXGLTEST_LOG=<log_file_path> environment variable, and run VBox GUI -> Display settings again. This should produce several <log_file_path>.<num>.log files containing 2D & 3D test results. Please attach them here also.

I clicked on VBoxTestOGL.exe and the same load error message occurred, same as the one attached to this thread. I don't see any logs being created either. Will the logs only be create if VBoxTestOGL.exe runs successfully?
