i might shed some light on this issue :)
While hunting down another bug, i downloaded Framemaker 7.1 from Adobe.
This application is protected by vbox 2.4.x so probably same issue as here.

Well, the error messages popping up at startup of adobe applications result from
an incomplete/corrupted vbox installation.
The vbox installer is called "VSetupT.exe" and contained within main app setup.
It gets executed as post install step.
Due to a failure, only license files get generated and copied (usually into
"c:\program files\common files\vbox\Licenses").
Most of vbox supplementary directories there are empty, vbox client/agent dlls

The following trace extract nails the problem down:

--- snip post-setup installation step ---

Due to advapi32.SetEntriesInAclA() returning ERROR_CALL_NOT_IMPLEMENTED the
installer silently fails install and exits without error.

I tested this on the fly in while running the installer in debugger by patching
SetEntriesInAclA() returning ERROR_SUCCESS in every case.
All following setup steps were executed successfully and the vbox client/agent
dlls get copied too.

These files are necessary for vbox to work (in c:\Program Files\Common

vboxat.dll  vboxm.dll  vboxr.dll  vboxtb.dll  vboxten-us.vboxlm

The application successfully starts up and displays 30-day trial dialog.

Looking at advapi32.SetEntriesInAclW() I see someone already "fixed" it to
return "OK" in all cases - but missed the ANSI version.
To get adobe vbox installations right, apply the following patch:

--- snip dlls/advapi32/security.c ---
                               PACL OldAcl, PACL* NewAcl )
    FIXME("%d %p %p %p\n",count,pEntries,OldAcl,NewAcl);
     *NewAcl = NULL;
    return ERROR_SUCCESS;
--- snip dlls/advapi32/security.c ---

This recipe applies to all adobe vbox protected installations.
Be aware that newer installation/demos from adobe DO NOT use vbox software
protection anymore (SafeCast 3.x now)
