  • Trouble importing new APK into Virtual Box

    I am trying to download the latest version of the APK and I keep getting a failed to import due to the file already existing. The error code reads:

    Result Code:
    VBOX_E_FILE_ERROR (0x80BB0004)
    Component:
    Machine
    Interface:
    IMachine {480cf695-2d8d-4256-9c7c-cce4184fa048}


    Any suggestions of what to do to get the .ova file imported? I guess I can uninstall VB but I would rather not if possible. I have removed the old appliances from VB and I have moved the old ova. files to the trash but I do not want to totally delete trash unless I know for sure it is the right thing to do.

    Help

    Type this in to the Start Menu search box:
    explorer "%userprofile%\VirtualBox VMs"

    You should see a window appear that contains a folder named something to the extent of "LocalAppInventor"
    Be sure VirtualBox is closed
    Press F2 on your keyboard, or right-click and select rename and and append to the file name ".bak.001" (increment .001 to .002 if .001 already exists)
    Press Enter
    Open Virtual Box and try importing your OVA again.

    This guide was written with Windows in mind. For *nix, in a shell try typing in something like "mv ~/VirtualBox VMs/LocalAppInventor*{,.bak}" then importing your files
