VMs can't launch (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)

Postby lukas-bla » 12. Sep 2019, 17:05

Hey,

I can't launch any VM. Getting this error:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
The VM session was aborted.

Fehlercode: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Komponente: SessionMachine
Interface: ISession {c0447716-ff5a-4795-b57a-ecd5fffa18a4}

The environment:
MacBook Pro Mid 2017 (15"), MacOS Catalina 10.15 (Beta)
VirtualBox Version 6.0.12 r133076 + Extension Pack

Any ideas? I already tried to reinstall VirtualBox.

Then may I ask why you posted on the "Linux Hosts" section? Doesn't compute... I'm moving this to the "OSX pre-releases" section where it should normally lie.

How did that go? Any errors? In theory, you should take some actions, don't know if you did.

You might want to print the following steps, or save them in a test file on your desktop, because there are a couple of reboots, and you don't want to go "hunting" in the forums...
  1. Download the latest release, if you don't already have it.
  2. Reboot.
  3. Make sure you're part of the "admin" group. If you are logged in with the primary user account/owner, you are part of the admin group.
  4. Mount the DMG from the previous step. Run "VirtualBox_Uninstall.tool". Make sure there are no error messages. If there are, please post them, exactly as they appear.
  5. Reboot.
  6. Mount the DMG from the previous steps. Double-click the "VirtualBox.pkg". As soon as you start the installation, press Cmd+L to show the log. Select "Show All Logs" from the drop-down menu. Before the last step of the installation (Done), click the "Save" in the log window. ZIP and attach that file.
  7. Start VirtualBox. If it crashes, open "Console.app" and look at "~/Library/Logs". Is there a VirtualBox related log with the current date/time? ZIP and attach that file as well.

  1. Your installation seems to be going fine.
  2. There are known crashes with Catalina. See for example Virtualbox crashes when selecting another window
