I am still having problems. I tried running virtualbox but the permissions are wrong.

the error message is
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Effective UID is not root (euid=1001 egid=1001 uid=1001 gid=1001) (rc=-10)
Please try reinstalling VirtualBox.
where: SUPR3HardenedMain what: 2 VERR_PERMISSION_DENIED (-10) - Permission denied.

Any suggestions now?

I got virtualbox running. There was an unknown configuration problem in the host (Mint Linux 17.1). I upgraded to the latest version of Mint Linux (Sylvia 18.3) and was able th then properly install virtualbox and the Windows 7 guest.
