VirtualBox upgrade wreaked my Windows 7 installation on Macintosh

I've been using VirtualBox installed on my Mac Pro for over a year. I have a Windows 7 installation running on it. This morning, VirtualBox told me a new version is available. So I downloaded and installed it, ran it, tried to open my virtual machine and got a bunch of error messages and an "abort" button. OK, so the upgrade is no good. I downloaded a backup from last night of the Application. Ran that, tried to open my virtual machine, similar errors! So, I downloaded a backup of my virtual machine AND the application, still can't run my machine.

This virtual machine is vitally important to me. I have backups of everything and still I can't make it run. This very frustrating, I would really appreciate any help in getting back up and running. Thank you!!!

No. I actually solved this already. Posted on the VirtualBox.org forums. The solution was to run Disk Utilities, Repair Disk Permisssions, restart computer... then it worked!

Are you running the MAC OS in 64-bit mode and installed the 32-bit VirtualBox bits?
