So I'm getting this error when starting VBOX when I already have a headless vm running.. Any thoughts, ideas?

Failed to create the VirtualBox COM object.
The application will now terminate.
Callee RC: CO_E_SERVER_EXEC_FAILURE (0x80080005)


Oh yea, oops.
I should mention I get that error when I try to open VirtualBox.exe

Some VBox commands must be run using the *user* which installed VBox (and *NOT* as Administrator) I hope that is your problem. :?

Just tested the latest 4.2.8 on a Dell E6510 laptop with Intel HD graphics
Host Win7x64
Guest Win8x64 with guest additions 4.2.8
When 3d accellaration is on the guest OS is repeatedly chrashing when opening Office 2013x64 and then opening a blank workbook.
Without 3D accelaration the guest OS/Office 2013 runs fine.

At first I thought I was crazy, but there definitely seems to be some issues with VirtualBox and Microsoft Office (in my case, 2010).
In Outlook, occasionally my screen flickers black (my secondary display, dual monitors), and minimizes any e-mail i have pulled up.
Similar events also occur within Excel, and IE 10. (non-metro).

Installing guest tools makes it worse!!

5d error when trying to install Windows 8

Postby npickles » 17. Mar 2013, 17:29

Apologies if this has been gone through before but the 5d error seems to be a pretty common problem that I may have found a new working solution to.

I was having a major issue installing Windows 8 in a VirtualBox VM running on a Windows 7 Ultimate host OS.The install process would start, then promptly stop with the dreaded 5d error message indicating that it thought that NX/XD/DEP either isn't available or isn't turned on.

I checked and re-checked all setting and it all looked good, the CPU supports NX/XD/DEP and it was turned on in the BIOS and turned on in the VirtualBox VM System Settings but it still wouldn't install. I checked the CPU capabilities with CoreInfo and SecurAble and they both confirmed that all the required CPU features for Windows 8 were present and correct and that NX/XD/DEP was enabled and available, but Windows 8 still refused to install.

I was doing some digging online and came across a post that mentioned the DEP settings in System Properties, Advanced, Performance, Settings, Data Execution Prevention. This setting has been in Windows since XP I think and the default on my existing Windows 7 host was set to 'Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only'.

I changed this to the 'Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I specify', rebooted the machine as requested and then when I try to install Windows 8 in the VirtualBox VM, voila, it works. :D

I've been battling this problem for weeks now and finally have a working Windows 8 VM so I can get on with my testing having tried just about all the other suggestions to the 5d error I could find online without success.

I thought this would be worth while sharing.

Is anybody alive here?
Or the developers just have adopted the ostrich method and VB can be buried.

I don't think anybody will look for old errors in old versions of Vbox. Did you try it again with a current version and an official release of Win8? Do you have a current logfile?

You have too high opinion about VB. What about old bugs in new versions? Nothing has changed since my first post. The latest version has the same problem.
I'm sure that nobody takes care about any log files. I'll certainly leave another log even though it'll be of no avail.

Well, that way it's no wonder nobody wants to waste their precious time to look into your problems.. :?
But a quick look at the log shows that you are low on memory:
Host RAM: 1791MB total, 898MB available
RamSize <integer> = 0x0000000030000000 (805 306 368, 768 MB)
VRamSize <integer> = 0x0000000008000000 (134 217 728, 128 MB)
Maybe that's why the guest stops/resets when it tries to switch to video mode which needs more RAM

@frosh,

32-bit hosts have an overhead when running 64-bit guests
    VirtualBox VM 4.2.10 r84104 win.x86 (Mar 15 2013 19:25:22) release log

Over commitment of RAM
    00:00:05.486636 Host RAM: 1791MB total, 898MB available
    00:00:05.835729 RamSize <integer> = 0x0000000030000000 (805 306 368, 768 MB)
    00:00:05.836347 VRamSize <integer> = 0x0000000008000000 (134 217 728, 128 MB)

The main reason why it does not work
    00:00:06.682136 NX - No-Execute Page Protection = 0 (1) [guest NX bit is off]

So why do you waste your precious time looking into my problems rather than helping others, for example, to close ticket #10700? That's not my problem but VB's one.

Firstly, I use 32-bit guest on 32-bit host. Secondly, 64-bit guest does boot in the same conditions.

What about a calculation like that
00:00:01.273620 Host RAM: 1791MB total, 1217MB available
00:00:01.406731 RamSize <integer> = 0x0000000024000000 (603 979 776, 576 MB)
00:00:01.406968 VRamSize <integer> = 0x0000000008000000 (134 217 728, 128 MB)
and 64-bit guest does boot anyway.

How come VB ignores own settings. The PAE/NX option is checked in GUI. Who supposed to be blamed?
00:00:02.189836 PAE - Physical Address Extension = 1 (1)
....
00:00:02.189871 NX - No-Execute Page Protection = 0 (1)

Windows 8 will not work with 576 MB of RAM, you need at least 1 GB, so don't expect anything under it.

Windows 8 system requirements
Required CPU extensions
Are you fully compliant with these? To me, it doesn't look like.

P.S. I've just found a bug, btw not only me. You don't want admit to issue with NX enabling? Fine, good luck in further ignoring problems.
