[bioontology-support] OVF import error

Dear Sir/Madam,

I'm trying to load ncbo-appliance-2.0 to virtualbox. However, error occurred and I cannot get around it after googling.
I would be very grateful if you can give me some help.

My environments are:
Host: CentOS 5.5
VirtualBox: 4.3.6

MacOS 10.6
VirtualBox: 4.2.8

In both environments, the same error occurs.

When I load .vmdk file by creating new virtual machine, I got the following error. Similar error occurs if I import the .ovf file

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine NCBOVirtual.

Could not open the medium '/home/test/ncbo-appliance-2.0/ncbo-appliance-2.0-disk1.vmdk'.

VMDK: incorrectly quoted value in descriptor in '/home/test/ncbo-appliance-2.0/ncbo-appliance-2.0-disk1.vmdk' (VERR_VD_VMDK_INVALID_HEADER).

VD: error VERR_VD_VMDK_INVALID_HEADER opening image file '/home/test/ncbo-appliance-2.0/ncbo-appliance-2.0-disk1.vmdk' (VERR_VD_VMDK_INVALID_HEADER).

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component: Medium
Interface: IMedium {05f2bbb6-a3a6-4fb9-9b49-6d0dda7142ac}

Thanks very much.
