Thanks Helen

the problem is the file

/Users/helen/Documents/VM/WIn XP Helen/WIn XP Helen.vbox

is missing from the computer, this is why you get the error.

It has either been moved or deleted

Do a search on your computer and look for the file

WIn XP Helen.vbox

Are you able to find it?

Also check in the Trash on the computer

Please let me know

No it will not open by double clicking it.

Right click on it and select Copy.
