First of all, we hope that you never uninstall YouWave. But for various reasons, you may need to uninstall it. Although we have tested installation of Oracle's VirtualBox after uninstallation of YouWave, there could be some cases in which we missed something.

In case you face an issue of bringing up Oracle VirtualBox after uninstallation of YouWave, here are the steps to clean things up.

First, you should uninstall VirtualBox if you have not done so.
1. Check <your user's home>/.VirtualBox directory. Remove it if it is there.
2. Open a command prompt as an administrator. Run "sc query vboxdrv" to check if vboxdrv service is there. If there it is, run "sc stop vboxdrv" and "sc delete vboxdrv". This deletes the vboxdrv service installed in your system.
3. Start regedit as an administrator. And search strings that has "VBox" or "youwave". Delete those entries.

After this, reinstall Oracle VirtualBox. Now it should will run.
YouWave is updated to Android Lollipop. See youwave.com/download

Hi,

Currently virtualbox cannot co-exist with youwave, since both software packages uses the same set of configuration settings.

After uninstalling youwave, please change the following registry key (start a dos window and type regedit) to make virtualbox work again.

"HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{46137EEC-703B-4FE5-AFD4-7C9BBBBA0259}\1.3\0\win64" and/or
"HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{46137EEC-703B-4FE5-AFD4-7C9BBBBA0259}\1.3\0\win32"

Change the Data to "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxC.dll"
