We have a atttendeed that is trying to import the Virtualbox image on
VirtualBox-4.1.14-77440-Win today and am running on Windows 7-64 bit w/ 8Gb RAM and 141Gb Free space.
Running NTFS encrypted.
And is getting the following error
Failed to import appliance Oracle_Developer_Day.ova - Could not read OVF file 'Oracle Developer_Dat.ovf' (VERR_TAR_END_OF_FILE).
Result Code: VBOX_E_FILE_ERROR (0x80BB0004)
Note: his md5sum matches mine and I was able to import it fine on linux.
I know we have had several 100 people do this at our OTN Developer Days on windows so there should not be an issue - But I do not have a widows box that I can reproduce it on.
Any help ideas about what the issue might be.
I setup a vsftp server instead and had better luck importing items. Use your browser and browse your anon ftp and copy the link. If you have the time try that real quick. Sometimes HTTP Servers may have limits that could be causing problems with the download.
I downloaded that VBox Template on my personal Desktop (homebuilt Intel Core i7-2600K, 16GB RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, 400+ GB Disk space free) using Virtualbox 4.1.14r77440 with Guest Extensions installed. For the download I used Firefox 12.0 and Down Them All! plugin. The MD5 Hash of the download validated to the one on the OTN Website. I imported the Oracle_Developer_Day.ova without any errors, and the Virtualbox VM came up without a fuss.
It seems to work fine on Windows 7 64-bit here, so there is something wrong on that specific laptop...
I was able to import successfully on a Windows XP desktop, using the files downloaded to my Windows 7 laptop.
I suspect this is an issue with the disk encryption on windows 7, but really have no way to verify that.
In any case, I am good to go.
