Windown Vista File access problem via Virtual Box

I'm running virtual box in windows vista ultimate, while trying to open the second virtual hdd it gives me an error VERR_ACCESS_DEINIED, the second virtual hdd is actually just a link to an existing 5 GB fat32 partition, when i boot into linux(SUSE 11.0), virtual box doesnt give any errors, and when i run vistual box as administrator it also works fine, but when i run it as a user with full admin privilages thats also part of the administrators group i get the error, all file and drive permissions are set to full access to all users aswell, what can i do do get it to work normally on the user account? or will i have to run it as admin every time?

    The solution is help full, but it still doesn't fix the problem, I have found the solution tho, I just create a standard Virtual Hdd in the virtual machine (.vdi) instead of the raw Virtual Disk (.vmdk) Now if i want to transfer data i just mount the .vdi with Imdisk and copy away

Running windows vista service pack 2 but quicken 2014 won't open


One solution would be to run it pretending your Vista is XP. I have seen it done but as I have no Vista machine, I cannot tell you the steps. Search for running Vista in XP mode - once you have managed that, try installing the software.
The second solution would be to open a virtual machine on Vista and running that as an XP machine. Again, I have seen it done.

Try the links I have added below.

The problem I had was with Quickbooks, not Quicken, but the principle is the same and worth a try. Good luck.

Are you doing a Dual-Boot? With a Separate Partition on the Primary HDD? I'm a bit confused? Are you doing a install on the Primary HDD and installing over the Win XP? Did you format the HDD? Or on a second HDD?

Hi there, I am trying to install windows Vista as a virtual machine but I keep getting an error saying something that I have recently installed has caused a problem. The app I installed was vmware which I...


Hello there, usually when you want to install a virtual machine the first thing to do is determine if the virtual machine platform is compatible with the OS you are planning to install. I had similar problems with VM ware when i was trying to use it with vista and it was one error after the other.
Needless to say VM Ware is not so compatible with vista. If you really want to use a virtual machine for vista without hassles simply switch to Virtual Box from sun micro systems. You can download this for free from virtual box.org the system is straight forward, easy to use and has great support capability for vista OS.
Hope this support has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

I have a US 122 USB audio midi interface wich worked fine with windows 2000 now I have windows 7 and how can I make it work


Try the driver for Vista (including x64) from http://tascam.com/product/us-122//downloads/ . It's version 3.40. You may need to use the compatibility mode. Right click on the installer after you extract the contents of the .zip file. Then choose Properties and select the Compatibility tab. Check the box for Run this program in the compatibility mode and select an older OS version. Then click Apply and OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator.

The other options is to use the Tascam US-122 with a computer with an older OS or upgrade to a Win7 compatible model. If you try an older version of Windows, you can use a second computer, a dual boot machine or a virtual computer. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them.

I hope this helps.

Hi i have been trying to install xp on Compaq presario cq56 but gives an error msg and there is no option in bios to change from sata


Are you trying to replace Windows 7? If so, I recommend you run WinXP in a virtual mode. Assuming your processor supports virtualization (I think it does) then all you need is the professional or ultimate version of Windoows 7. You can then download the necessary program and a special copy of WinXP pro. This allows you to run WinXP inside Windows 7 without the need to reboot. Look at the links below. You will need a legal version of Windows 7 pro or ultimate. I am not sure what you currently have. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/vi... http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/...

My Art Explosion Greeting Card Deluxe Factory 2 software will not work on my Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop. I am using Windows Vista. Please can you advise?


Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.

If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .

You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)

Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.

I hope this helps.

My computer do not accept the cd to install the software for sdr-h40 hdd camcorder, i get a message saying do not support the software


What OS is the computer running? The software isn't guaranteed to work with 64-bit Windows. (Windows 2000 through Vista are tested. Win 7 is an untested OS)

If you have Win7, you can try running the software in the compatibility mode. Right click on the Installer (.exe) and choose Properties. Click on the Compatibility Tab and check the box for Run this program in compatibility mode and use the drop down menu to select Vista or XP. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

Another option is to run the software in a virtual computer running a supported OS. Win7 Pro and Ultimate support the XP mode which needs two programs downloaded and installed from Microsoft. Otherwise you need a licensed version of the OS to install in the virtualization program. Then install the camera software inside the virtual computer (as if it was the only computer).

I hope this helps.

(also note that the software does not run on some dual boot systems and may not run properly on multi-CPU systems. Updated software/drivers do not seem to be available on the Panasonic support site.)

Problems running with Windows 7 Ultimate


The program doesn't list that it is Win7 compatable (either on the package specs or Microsoft Compatability Center). Try right clicking on the install program and choose Properties. Then click on the Compatability Tab, put a check in the box "Run this program in the Compatability mode", choose Vista in the adjacent drop down box. Then right click on the installer and choose "Run as administrator". If this runs, great - have fun.

If it doesn't run, you have an alternative option since you hace Win7 Ultimate. Download and install the two programs that make up the XP mode from Microsoft; this will create a virtual computer that runs XP. Install this program inside that virtual computer. Have fun with the game.

I hope this helps.
