Error Failed to load VMMR0.r0 (VERR_SUPLIB_WORLD_WRITABLE)

Postby brtech » 6. Apr 2011, 03:20

Getting this error consistently on a VM that has previously worked fine
Tried a new VM based on a copy of the file originally used to create this VM, same problem
Uninstalled and reinstalled latest Virtualbox

There have been a few other users commenting on this same problem. Some have claimed that running Repair Disk Permissions using DIsk Utility has fixed it for them. Worth a shot.

Huh, I tried searching for the problem, probably didn't use the right search terms.

Anyway, that helped me; it is now running.

Thanks for the suggestion and sorry I didn't find the answer myself.

Not a problem. I just prefaced my reply that way because I haven't run into this particular problem myself, so couldn't be sure if it was the answer to your problem, but that others had had success with repairing the permissions.

Had the exact same problem& ran Repair Disc Permissions. After this tried again to open Virtual Box. Then received message including option to download & install Virtual Box Extension Pack. Went to http://www.virtualbox.com, downloaded Oracle VM Virtual Box 4.0.6 Extension Pack (ALL PLATFORMS), installed same and Virtual Box again opens and operates correctly.
