Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Copied Virtual Machine directory from a Linux host to a Windows host. I got the following error when trying to "Add" the machine.

Failed to open virtual machine located in
D:/VirtualMachines/OEL6-x64/OEL6-x64.vbox.

Medium 'D:\VirtualMachines\OEL6-x64\OEL6-
x64.vdi' cannot be closed because it is still attached to 1
virtual machines.

The Details box contains:

Result Code: 
VBOX_E_OBJECT_IN_USE (0x80BB000C)
Component: 
Medium
Interface: 
IMedium {9edda847-1279-4b0a-9af7-9d66251ccc18}
Callee: 
IVirtualBox {d2de270c-1d4b-4c9e-843f-bbb9b47269ff}
Callee RC: 
E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057)

This is VirtualBox 4.0.8. Image was created under 4.0.6 but I tested it on 4.0.8 before moving it to the new machine.

I have uploaded the .vbox file.

I have tried removing the DVDImage tag and the SharedFolder tag.

I found the solution.

I deleted all references to DVDImages and SharedFolders, replacing <DVDImages>...<DVDImages> with <DVDImages/> and <SharedFolders>...<SharedFolders> with <SharedFolders/>

Seems that earlier versions were more forgiving.
