Postby Sebiohazard » 21. Aug 2019, 10:47

Hello everyone :)

I have this error code when launching my VMs: Code d'erreur : E_FAIL (0x80004005)

Here is a screenshot & log file: [ModEdit: replaced 3rd party link to a screenshot of the error, with the actual error text]
Échec de l'ouverture de session pour la machine virtuelle Linux Mint 19.

The configuration constructor in main failed due to a COM error. Check the release log of the VM for further details. (VERR_MAIN_CONFIG_CONSTRUCTOR_COM_ERROR).

The forum gurus like logs to be zipped and posted as zip files using the forum's Upload Attachment tab. Screenshots should also be cropped & resized to fit the frum's 128kB limit, and posted using Upload Attachment.

reveals that Virtualbox may not be installed properly. Try finding the installer and re-run it by right-clicking the installer icon and choosing Run As Administrator. (Note, 'Right-click Run As Administrator' is not 'log-off-log-back-on-as-an-administrator', nor is it 'I'm-already-admin-so-I-don't-need-to-right-click'. You need to do the right-click method even if you are already an admin on Windows hosts to get Virtualbox to install correctly. It's a Windows thing...)
