I am running windows 7 64 bit, and have installed virtualbox 3.1.6. Sage 4.3 does not import into virtualbox right near the end of the import process it fails with the following error

Runtime error: -35 (Unresolved (unknown) host platform error.).

The error occurs on line 3325 of the source file VirtualBoxImpl?.cpp .

This may be a virtualbox issue, but it does mean that perhaps a lot of windows users can't get the default sage virtual environment to run. I have not seen this issue reported elsewhere.

The VirtualBox? machine will be replaced by a VMware machine for the next release. When that happens this ticket can be closed.

Running Windows 7 (64bit), too. Using the recent version of Virtualbox (4.3.8) importing and starting Sage 5.13 work without errors.
