Virtualbox error NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005). I came across this error code yesterday when I was trying to import a virtual machine from VMWare into Oracle Virtualbox.

I had successfully converted my Acer Aspire One running Windows 7 Home Premium from a physical machine into a virtual one but I could not import it into Virtualbox because I kept on getting this error message.

It turns out that Virtualbox needed to be run as root for the operation to be successful.  After this the world was once again a nice place to be!!

I hope this helps out someone else.
