virtualbox system wont start Ubuntu 9.10


THis use to work but when I tried to start it today I get the following error:

Start tag expected, '<' not found.
Location: '/home/cj454/.VirtualBox/Machines/winxp/winxp.xml', line 1 (0), column 1.
/home/vbox/vbox-3.1.2/src/VBox/Main/MachineImpl.cpp[5821] (nsresult Machine::loadSettings(bool)).
Result Code:
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component:
VirtualBox
Interface:
IVirtualBox {2158464a-f706-414b-a8c4-fb589dfc6b62}


Could I have gotten a patch from Ubuntu that broke my VB?
I have not updated VB in ages and last time it was working just fine.

[sudo] password for cj454:
* Stopping VirtualBox kernel module * done.
* Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module

So I updated the VB sw and tried to import the disk. I get

Failed to create a new virtual machine.
Machine settings file '/home/cj454/.VirtualBox/Machines/winxp/winxp.xml' already exists.

So i moved the file out of the way and let VB rebuild it. Seems to be working again.

Hope this helps someone else if they get this.

Try renaming /home/cj454/.VirtualBox/Machines/winxp, say to winxp.aside, and re-creating the winxp system via the GUI.
