Failed to create the VirtualBox Com object on Vista x64

Postby regli » 19. Nov 2007, 20:57

When I start the VirtualBox program I get the message:

Failed to create the VirtualBox Com object
The application will now terminate.
Callee RC: E_ACCESSDENIED (0x80070005)


This didn't happen for about two weeks after installation. However, now it is consistent.

Note that if I invoke the program using administrator priviges then the failure does not occur. Why does it suddenly need adminstrator privieges to execute?

Maybe your COM server VboxSvc.exe was set to be run as admnnistrator then you've acciedentally removed this attribute. Open your Virtualbox folder find the Vboxsvc.exe and right click and then properties then select run as administator save and retry.

I actually had to change it on the VirtualBox.exe file. However, once done it worked just fine.

Thanks for your help.
