Read the doc carefully. Most likely you'll simply need a reboot.

Hello all,

I'm trying to install VirtualBox 4.3.0 on a Windows 7 (32 bit) host without success.

When it's copying the new files and it's almost done, it starts a rollback process and shows a window that says that no changes has been done.

On windows event viewer I found this:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Product: Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.3.0 -- Installation failed.

Nombre de la aplicación con errores: rundll32.exe_pnpui.dll, versión: 6.1.7600.16385, marca de tiempo: 0x4a5bc637

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Any ideas?

Thanks,
Lex

Thanks a lot, it works great after copying ".Virtualbox" folder into "...System32\config..."

I'm using WinXP SP 2.

Greetings from Argentina.

What a suggested value of PauseShutdown?
Reading some post I've seen that a common beahviour is to set it to 15000 and modify registry for max service timeout to a greater value (20000 in my case).
What if I set PauseShutdown to 180000 to get a 3 min max timeout (in case of windows update or other stuff slowing dowm my guest shutdown)? And perhaps a 300000 registry value?
And if, with that configuration, my guest shutdown in 40 seconds will VBoxVmService still wait 3 minutes or there is some kind of polling that check if all VM's are stopped then let host shutdown?

I would suggest trying to shutdown your XP VM several times and find out a time value that is long enough for the VM to poweroff, but also not too long than necessary.

There is currently no polling implemented, the service will just wait for the time set by PauseShutdown and then close itself.

Check to make sure your VM folder (and files) can be accessed by the user that VBoxVmService runs with (by default is LOCAL SYSTEM).

I'm looking for information about all the options available in the VBoxVmService.ini file. The first post in this topic mentions some install/setup instructions, but that sourceforge forum link does not seem to work. Any chance of someone posting the info here or adding it to the sourceforge project wiki?

All the currently supported options/params are documented in the doc file Howto.txt that comes with the installation.

Hi,

Just installed this, and while it does correctly start the VM as a service, I can no longer run the main 'VirtualBox' application. I tried having the service run as my user, but that doesn't seem to help.

Is this expected?

Strangely 4.3.1 doesnt support 64 bit Guest OS on Windows 7 Host.
Any remedy/work around for that?
