Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top loads up the first time like a charms. But if I shut it down and try to load it up a second time, I get nothing. Literally nothing. No error, no exception no nothing. I have to reboot to run it again (which is obviously unacceptable)

Any ideas? Suggestions? Something to test?

I've noticed this happens with applications that do not shutdown properly. Crack open your list of processes and see if it is running - if so, kill it.

If you can kill the process and reopen succesfully, time to troubleshoot why it is not closing down properly.

This actually worked, but revealed another problem. If I kill the process, I can then run it one way or the other, but not both. That is, I can open the GUI and run a VM, OR I can run a VM from the command line, but either way, the other will cause an error. This is not acceptable as I have some VMs constantly running, and others I just open for brief periods via the GUI. What the heck caused this? It wasn't always so. I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. – aserwin Sep 11 '13 at 19:06
