Hi Thomas,

All the errors in the log you shared are expected errors, they do not cause any issue.

The error "Another instance for VM "Sailfish OS Emulator" already 
exists" is also unrelated to your issues.

The errors from qt.network.ssl are something I would be worry about, but again it is not related 
to your issues.

What I bet is (was) the source of your issues is the content of your VirtualBox.xml.

Did you change your user name in past or so?

There are two entries with "/home/tol/" as the home directory, while the others have "/home/
thomas/". One of them is for a "Sailfish OS Build Engine" from some older SDK installation that I 
believe is not available anymore on that path under /home/tol, which would be a possible reason 
to end with VBOX_E_INVALID_OBJECT_STATE. Qt Creator uses VM names instead of UUIDs, so 
which VM would it be trying to start with `vboxmanage startvm 'Sailfish OS Build Engine'`? The 
existing one under /home/thomas or the unavailable one under /home/tol?
