Installation Failed after System Restore

Postby pws442 » 9. Mar 2019, 23:55

Just got my MBP back from Apple and did a TM restore. Everything is OK until I tried to Open a W7 VM from OS 10.14.3. I had a Kernel error, so I ran the uninstall tool and then tried to install 6.0.2 Got this message
The Installation Failed. The installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance.

This is the message I get when opening a VM with 6.0.4(?)
Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908) Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully. where: suplibOsInit what: 3 VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT.

Please help!

There is a sticky post (that means at the top) titled: Installation fails on 10.13.x, 10.14.x (rc=-1908). Please read it...

Thank you, very much. That prompt to Allow Oracle was there the third time!?

I'm sorry, I don't quite understand. What [i]"third time"[/i] are you referring to?
