Just want to share that in-memory uxtheme patcher works with virtualbox 4.3.24. So if you want to have custom theme just install an uxtheme patcher that modifies it in memory.

Xorbe, info that I saw (https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic ... 97#p295025) says that malware on the host can inject itself into Virtualbox's host processes the same way many legitimate programs can, and get higher privileges for running than the malware could have had if Virtualbox wasn't there.

Hi everybody ,
today, when I start a virtual machine working until 3 days ago, I got this error:
"Timed out after 60014 ms waiting for child request #1 (CloseEvents). (rc=258)"
after around 60 seconds.

So, I no have Idea of what happened.... Someone can help me?

Please, take me seriously.

Askes datas:
1) Host OS and version
My PC run Windows XP Sp3, has 3Gb RAM and 250 Gb hard drive. Virtualbox emulates a Windows 7 32 bit, dedicated 1,4 Gb of RAM and 20Gb of hard drive.
2) VBoxStartup.log (zipped)
see attached
3) Mention any host anti-virus, firewalls, protection software, and debugging programs etc which might be relevant
Avira antivirus free is installed in both (host and guest) and windows firewall.

Thanks, @scottgus1 -- I didn't consider that aspect. That is important to secure at all times, not something I would want to disable!

Hi

After the update to version 4.3.24 from 4.2.18 I was able to run a win XP guest machine but after the host (Win 7 Home Premium x64, AMD, Acer Aspire) reboot it has been possible no longer. I tried to turn off PC Tools 7 firewall, antivirus AVG 2015 and Iobit Advanced Care 8.1 but without a success. I am enclosing screenshots and the VM guest machine logs. Could you look at the issue?

The error messages are:
"Error relaunching VirtualBox VM process: 5
Command line: '...--starttvm...--no-starttvm-errormsgbox..."

"The virtual machine '...' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1(0x1)...
Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: Machine
Interface: IMachine {...}"

@Mooshkooloo, dId you try the try the advice in the log file?

VBoxStartup.log wrote:d24.684: NtCreateFile(\Device\VBoxDrvStub) failed: 0xc0000034 STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND (0 retries)

Driver is probably stuck stopping/starting. Try 'sc.exe query vboxdrv' to get more information about its state. Rebooting may actually help.

Virtualbox 4.3.24
Windows XP SP3 as Host
Antivirus: Avira free
Firewall: Windows firewall
Error:
- Error 258 in supR3HardNtChildWaitFor! (enmWhat=5)
- Timed out after 60001 ms waiting for child request #1 (CloseEvents).

No one virtual guest is able to run.
When I've upgraded from 4.3.22 it worked, but after some days (I don't remember if I've rebooted only one time or more), whitout change or new installation, and now no one guest machine works, old or new one.
I've reinstalled 4.3.22, but without success, no guest is able to run.

Still facing same error, as with all other versions from 4.3.14 and above:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Die virtuelle Maschine trusty konnte nicht gestartet werden.

Unable to load R3 module C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox/VBoxDD.DLL (VBoxDD): GetLastError=1790 (VERR_UNRESOLVED_ERROR).

Fehlercode:E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Komponente:Console
Interface:IConsole {8ab7c520-2442-4b66-8d74-4ff1e195d2b6}


What does that error mean:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
00:00:02.827685 VMSetError: F:\tinderbox\win-4.3\src\VBox\VMM\VMMR3\PDMLdr.cpp(307) int __cdecl pdmR3LoadR3U(struct UVM *,const char *,const char *); rc=VERR_UNRESOLVED_ERROR

I have no "F:\" drive, no directory called "tinderbox" and it's and these information are nowhere defined in the VM ... ?

1.) Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (x64)
2.) see attachment
3.) Windows Defender, means standard firewall and MS Security Essentials

So, reverting back to 4.3.12 another time ... but to be honest sticking at Kernel 3.13 within Linux VMs isn't funny anymore ...

Regards
fnu

For what it's worth the new test build (4.3.25 build 98881) works well with Comodo Internet Security 8.1 and Symantec Endpoint protection with Windows 7SP1 x64 hosts and Windows 8.1 x64 hosts and XP/Linux guests.

Hello,
No go with the latest build.

OS - Win7 Professional 64bit - SP1
Trendmicro Office Scan - 11.0.1454
Virtualbox - 4.3.25-98881

Screen shot and startup log attached.

I am happy to assist with debugging. Are there any switches or process that would provide additional diagnostic information?

Thanks,
Richard
