If you get the following error when trying to run VirtualBox on FreeBSD:

  Failed to create the VirtualBox COM object

Then to solve the problem just delete .VirtualBox directory from your home dir.

Also you could delete some VirtualBox temp files from /tmp:

  cd /tmp ; rm -rf .vbox-*-ipc

If you still did not solved your problem and pressing details the verbose error is:

  Callee RC:
  NS_ERROR_ABORT (0x80004004)


then you must recompile the kernel with the following option:

option COMPAT_IA32          # works on FreeBSD up to 8.x

If you have FreeBSD 9.x or 10.x use instead:

option COMPAT_FREEBSD32
