Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I have VirtualBox 4.0.8 installed on a Windows 2008 R2 server. HP DL180 G6 hardware. This is a basic install with no other services installed. I downloaded and ran the virtualbox install. I encountered no errors and the install ran through clean. When the install finishes I attempt to run VirtualBox and I receive a Critical Error and the program never runs.

The error box says: VirtualBox - Critical Error Failed to create the VirtualBox COM object. The application will now terminate. Details: Callee RC: CO_E_SERVER_EXEC_FAILURE (0x80080005)

Originally this server also had HyperV installed and all the latest drivers. When this didn't solve the problem I removed the HyperV role but that still did not solve the problem. In hopes of finally resolving this I completely reloaded the server and did not install any additional roles, etc. I upgraded the bios to the latest version. The VT -d is enabled in the bios but I have tried it disabled as well.

I happened to have another server available but it is the same HP model and I get the same VirtualBox errors.

I'm hoping that someone has run across this before and might be able to shed some light or give me some direction... I really don't know what else to check.

I wanted to update the ticket to make sure I gave you sufficient information on the hardware and software.

Windows 2008 R2 Standard with sp1.
I have done a fresh install and progressively installed drivers and firmware updates while testing virtualbox throughout the process.
I have also started with a base install of Windows Server and progressively installed the “windows updates” while testing virtualbox throughout the process.
I have installed virtualbox both “run as Administrator” also using the “Administrator” account.
I have tried older versions of virtualbox as well as the latest 4.0.8. Currently I have 4.0.4 installed and I installed it “run as Administrator”.
