I too am getting this error, and tried to use the command, <sudo chmod o-w /Applications/VirtualBox.app> in the Terminal. I still cannot get past this error. Here is my log.

A quick note: on Windows, I was able to get around this by deleting the log file mentioned in the error message.

After doing so, things started up just fine.

I'm in a strange situation where another program I run require world write access to /usr/bin
Performing the recommended
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
chmod o-w /usr
would be unproductive.
Is there any other recommendations?

@AIM Systems,

What program are you talking about? /usr/bin should never be world writeable. Huge security risk.
Is is not possible to give the program access?

Just use Disk Permission Repair Tool on your Mac.
