I upgraded VirtualBox and am now unable to run a saved machine because of USB 2.0.

When I tried to resolve the problem by installing the VirtualBox extension pack I get the error Incompatible library version: VBoxPuelMain.dylib requires version 4.1.0 or later, but VBoxVMM.dylbin provides version 4.0.12.

Make sure that you have the correct extensions installed, since they're not automatically upgraded with VirtualBox. You can check in VBox from the menu... File > Preferences > Extensions.

Here are the latest downloads...

You are probably trying to install the extension of a newer VBox (I did the same :P). You have 2 options:

1 - download the right version in this link;

2 - download a newer version of VirtualBox (v4.1.2 at the moment - and try to install the same extension you are getting this error.

I did the second option and it's working fine now ;-)

This problem to me is simple. Just go to the Menu bar (on the top of your desktop), then check for update. This will automatically download the most up to date version, and most importantly the extensions will then be downloaded and installed.

It worked for me very well.

Good luck.
