Description

Fresh installation of VB 4.0.2 on Windows 7 Ultimate N x64.

Installation finishes, however, upon initial launch, we are given the following error:

'VirtualBox - Critical Error Failed to create the VirtualBox COM object. The Application will now terminate.

Callee RC: TYPE_E_ELEMENTNOTFOUND (0x8002802b)

Have verified that the service exists, and that all settings for VB.exe and the SVC.exe are set to run as administrator (UAC is off, and rebooted).

Doesn't seem to want to start.

Issuse is resolved.

CAUSE: Previous installation of YouWave android emulator on Windows 7. Changes the registry key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{46137EEC-703B-4FE5-AFD4-7C9BBBBA0259}\1.3\0win64

it needs to manually be changed back to include the proper DLL path:

c:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxC.dll

instead of the path to the YouWave dll file.

Registry setting:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{46137EEC-703B-4FE5-AFD4-7C9BBBBA0259}\1.3\0win64] @="c:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxC.dll"
