Works fine here. Was the installation successful or did you see any error message? Did you install VirtualBox as normal user (no, you should _not_ install it as admin)?

The installation is successful, the error messages were not. The user under which you installed is a member of the administrators. Anti-Virus is disabled. I have no usb devices.

I believe that the error is identical to

Dear developers! We are pleased to inform you that I was able to understand where the fault lies! When I disabled the integrated sound card in the manager of devices and rebooted the system - the VM works! If I turn on the sound card - VM hangs on startup ! I look forward to answer what is the reason for this behavior of the program and when at last, this error will be corrected by you.

Interesting finding. What kind of soundcard is that? Sorry for asking this but when you say that the GUI doesn't come up, you definitely refer to the VM selector GUI right? That is, you don't try to start the VM from the command line (e.g. VirtualBox --startvm foo)?

Thank you for your reply.

I am ready to provide any additional information you need.

OS Win7 CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Motherboard ASUS, use the built-in card soundcard. No other sound card.

The system only standard drivers Win7.

I tried "VirtualBox --startvm myVM" from the command line - exact same error if soundcarsd is enabled.

I found some posts with similar problem - User capfed76 says "previous one was onboard, I just disabled it)."

Sorry for the late answer. I just to ensure if that you still have this problem with VBox 4.1.6. Still relevant or not?
