    VirtualBox GUI won't start

    Hello Everyone ,
    I have a virtual box which worked fine last night. I didn't change any settings , but as of today , the virtualbox gui won't start when invoked from the task bar. I have tried using the command line and it just hangs.
    Does anyone have a clue as to how to diagnose the problem ?

    Sincerely ,
    JD

    See if there's an instance of it still running. I've had exactly the same symptom a couple of times for no apparent reason. I'm sure there are cleaner fixes than a reboot but that's what I did

    Plus make sure that you are logged in as the same user as you were when you installed it.

    You're there WERE other instances of VBox running. I had to get rid of them , now I have a problem with the graphics , but I will post that seperately. I appreciate the quick , almost unhealthily rapid response.
