Yesterday I changed name of my user file and name of account from "Król" to "Sotel" on Windows 10. Now my oracle vbox is inaccessible and shows error:

Runtime error opening 'C:\Users\Kr�l\VirtualBox VMs\SW\SW.vbox' for reading: -103 (Path not found.).

F:\tinderbox\win-6.1\src\VBox\Main\src-server\MachineImpl.cpp[754] (long __cdecl Machine::i_registeredInit(void)).

Score number (RC): E_FAIL (0x80004005)

Component: MachineWrap Interface: IMachine {85632c68-b5bb-4316-a900-5eb28d3413df}

I have already changed path to "C:\Users\Sotel\VirtualBox VMs" from "C:\Users\Król\VirtualBox VMs" in tab "general" in global settings of oracle virtual machine but it doesn't solve the issue. What should I do to make my vbox accessible again?

  • So i deleted it and just turned it on again from the VBox machine folder and everything works as it should.

Solution was to remove the VM from the list of VMs (that reference the incorrect location) within VirtualBox and add the VM in it's new location.

  • Is that your answer: delete the VM?

  • @Ramhound: Your explanation is better than the answer.

  • @harrymc - The author can certainly edit their answer to clarify it. However, I honestly wouldn't answer a question like this normally, so I don't plan on trying to fix the answer myself.
