Moving a Virtualbox VM to a new PC

Postby stawes » 27. Oct 2021, 18:56

I have been running an small application developed for Windows XP using Virtualbox on my PC . Now it is time to move to a brand new host.
I got the information that it is just to move the VM to the new Virtualbox installation on the new host.
I followed the information and doubble clicked the .vbox file on the new host.
The result was very positive and I could display the snapshots and select the last one.
However when starting the machine i got this error.

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Windows XP Mode.

The VM session was closed before any attempt to power it on.

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: SessionMachine
Interface: ISession {c0447716-ff5a-4795-b57a-ecd5fffa18a4}

See the screenshot
What does that mean?
