Virtual Box not opening.

Post by Velhassan » Mon Apr 01, 2013 3:31 am

In my Linux mint 13 Mate (64 bit version) Virtual Box is not opening. The following error occurs. Failed to open a session for the virtual machine. Failed to open release log (could not open file '/home/parkadal/VirtualBox VMs/WINXP/Logs/VBox.log' (fOpen=0x322), VERR_ACCESS_DENIED).


Thanks in Advance,...

You could try to give the file more permissions.

Code: Select all

chmod +w "/home/parkadal/VirtualBox VMs/WINXP/Logs/VBox.log"
