    Hi Debabrata,
    What version of Virtual Box are you using and are you using 32 bit or 64 bit win7? In my searches, I found the following forum post on the web:

    They state:
    Try running Virtual box 4.2.6 as Administrator and/or in compatibility mode for WinXP SP3….worked for me with Win7 32bit

    Let me know if this helps.
