#7853 closed defect (fixed)

Virtualbox programs do not start anymore (error 0x8002801D)

Reported by: apvb Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 3.2.12
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Windows


The main application stops with the error message


In command line mode any Virtualbox application exit with the following message:

ERROR: failed to create the VirtualBox object!
ERROR: code TYPE_E_LIBNOTREGISTERED (0x8002801D) - Library not registered. (extended info not available)
Most likely, the VirtualBox COM server is not running or failed to start.

Since the applications won't start I could not attach a log. This happens on a Windows 7 x64 host machine. Tried different versions (2.x - 3.x).

The problem is solved. The permission on the registry key for the VBoxC.dll were wrong.

Maybe due to some virus checker?
