Vagrant Error when importing a Box

I am running on Mac with VirtualBox 4.2.18 and out of no where started getting these errors.

/// Problem

Progress: 20%There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant
for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below.

//// Solution 

execute “vagrant box remove centos64”
execute “vagrant up” – reinstall the image…

As they say…it worked for me.
