Vagrant VBoxManage Error on Mac when booting a VM while executing vagrant up


everytime I execute vagrant up on my Mac i get the following error:

There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant
for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below.

Command: ["startvm", "f0d41d96-6687-451e-b682-1ec409013b15", "--type", "headless"]

Stderr: VBoxManage: error: The virtual machine 'Block2Sem2_default_1619613054845_45024' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1)
VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component MachineWrap, interface IMachine

I tried to reinstall Vagrant and VirtualBox but nothing worked.

So finally after so much time i figured it out:

On Mac make sure you have your Security Settings set correctly. To check go to Security > Input-Monitoring > "Accept VirtualBox". Then go to Accessibility > "Accept AEServer" and "VirtualBox". Then reload your vagrant machine and everything should work.
