Error message in Guest VBoxClient: Failed to register support, rc=VERR_INVALID_FUNCTION

I had to restore my guest image after a power failure, but now I get this error message

VBoxClient: Failed to register support, rc=VERR_INVALID_FUNCTION
Anyone any ideas, please?

How did you restore the guest image?

is the error message inside the VM's OS?


Start the VM from full normal shutdown, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM's OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip it, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.

FYI as requested. Shut down the OS (Debian3CX) within the Guest and then rebooted.

Off the top of my heaD. tRIED LOADS OF STUFF, BUT ALL FAILED. oNLY METHOD THAT WORKED WAS TO CREATE A NEW EMPTY gUEST AND THEN (sorry caps lock) put the image in the folder and import

is the error message inside the VM's OS?

A VM reboot wasn't part of the instructions for getting the log. The posted log is incomplete.

However, there may be a damaged Guest Additions installation inside the VM:
00:00:24.400987 VMMDev: Guest Additions information report: Version 5.2.0 r68940 '5.2.0'
00:00:29.972096 VMMDev: Guest Log: 15:36:31.509577 main VBoxService 6.1.26 r145957 (verbosity: 0) linux.amd64 (Jul 28 2021 18:25:57) release log
00:00:29.978182 VMMDev: Guest Log: 15:36:31.514996 main Executable: /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-6.1.26/sbin/VBoxService

Try purging everything re Guest Additions inside the VM, then reinstall. Note that there are prerequisites https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch04. ... ions-linux and https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch02. ... nux-prereq
