    Vbox is a trial copy protection system previously owned
    by preview systems now by Aladdin.
    It is a bolt on protection system (not incorporated in the original code)
    and works by wrapping around the original exe.
    once attached it handles all the imports of the original exe
    by directing calls to a decryption routine,
    this was the weak point of the protection.
    It was easy to write an inline patch to hook this routine
    and write the valid imports back to the IAT (Import Allocation Table)
    then dump the exe from memory and replace the IAT with the
    one you created, thus the program is clear of vbox and the trial.

    Can't help with the error message if you haven't used a crack
    on the software I suggest you contact Adobe or Aladdin and
    raise the point with them, or uninstall flash cs4 and
    install their free flash player which has no vbox wrapper.
