VirtualBox shows: Cannot register the hard disk because a hard disk with UUID already exists

1

When I back to home, I open the Virtual Box and it shows up:

Failed to get VirtualBox COM Obj.
Cannot register the hard disk 'PathA' {75df0d7e-4c8f-4dcb-b89b-110ad8c061a1} because a hard disk 'PathA' with UUID {7df6ea8d-5425-43d2-bbc1-ee38c2e8c3f5} already exists.
return code: E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057)

Then... I go to the Google and look up this problem...
After that.. I run the command:

VBOXMANAGE.EXE internalcommands sethduuid "PathA"

VBoxManage.exe: error: Failed to create the VirtualBox object!
VBoxManage.exe: error: Cannot register the hard disk 'PathA' {75df0d7e-4c8f-4dcb-b89b-110ad8c061a1} because a hard disk 'PathA {7df6ea8d-5425-43d2-bbc1-ee38c2e8c3f5} already exists
VBoxManage.exe: error: Details: code E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057), component VirtualBoxWrap, interface IVirtualBox

Thanks for your help!

So.. Guys.. I found the solution...

First, going to your user dir such as: C:\Users\Administrator Then, find the dir that called: .VirtualBox Finally, delete that dir.

Reboot the Vbox and you finally can use it!
