getting error when trying to launch VB

Postby ray342659093 » 9. Nov 2017, 08:17

Hi, I was trying to launch virtualbox 5.2 on ubuntu 16.04. However, I got following message:

VirtualBox: Error -610 in supR3HardenedMainInitRuntime!
VirtualBox: dlopen("/usr/lib/virtualbox/",) failed: <NULL>

VirtualBox: Tip! It may help to reinstall VirtualBox.

I tried to reinstall virtualbox multiple times, but still got the same message. I also google for this message and most of them saying that this is because of wrong ownership of /usr and /usr/lib. However, I used ls -ld command to check the ownership and both these two dirs belong to root:root. I have no idea what is going on now. Anyone can help me?

See if SecureBoot is enabled in the host bios and if so disable it.
