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

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.

Solution to Virtual Memory Too Low Problem


This problem was reported by one of our readers that in spite of having a sufficient amount of RAM, he is running out of Virtual Memory and his Windows PC gives the following error:

19f986e.png
Your system is low on virtual memory. To ensure that Windows runs properly, increase the size of your virtual memory paging file. For more information, see Help.
This is a common problem and you may have seen it if you are trying to open many heavy applications at the same time like Microsoft Office.
Let’s see what the causes are and what can be done at this stage.
Windows XP or Vista uses the concept of Virtual Memory that aims at providing the additional memory from the Hard Disk if most of the RAM of the computer is already occupied. This memory used from the Hard Disks is called Paging File. Windows reserve some part of the memory for this purpose only (this is one of the reasons why we see less memory than specified on the hard disk).
Virtual Memory also known as Page File or Swap File can be located at C:\pagefile.sys (it is system hidden and can be viewed if you Uncheck the option of “Hide Protected Operating System Files” inside Folder Options).

That's right, it doesn't run on Vista. You can upgrade to Win7 which has a virtual XP mode.

There is a work around to getting Windows XP programs to work under Windows Vista - Virtual PC 2007.

Virtual PC 2007 is a free download from Microsoft and it allows you to install any operating system and run it in a "window" on your Vista desktop.

Download Virtual PC 2007, create a Windows XP virtual machine, install Microsoft Money and transfer in your data. You can install Quicken as well.

The virtual machine will use your PC's actual connections (network, serial and printer but not USB) to connect to devices and the Internet.

Again - this is a work around that is proven to work. One side benefit - you can copy the virtual machine to an external hard drive / USB memory stick and run it on any comptuer that has Virtual PC 2007 installed on it.

Hope this helps

Here is a guide on how to dual boot with Vista and Windows 7 click here Another option you have is to install Windows 7 as a virtual machine, in my opinion this is easier, safer, and a better option. You can download a program from Sun Micro Systems called Virtual Box for free here And I've posted a tutorial on how to install Windows 7 in Virtual Box here in the Tutorials section.

About the vista


In general:
1. You have to buy it from Microsoft or from some reseller.

2. If you have previous legal version of Windows is it possible to upgrade it, but you have to buy it.

3. You can download one virtual pc test image from
trial purposes:

But it requires MS Virtual Server or Virtual PC.
