Virtualbox won't import appliance

I have Virtualbox setup and running on a 32 bit system with XP as a
guest. Everything is working well and now I want to transfer it to a
new 64 bit system I am setting up.
My research indicated that the package in the repository probably won't
run on my 64 bit system so I downloaded the amd64.deb package from Sun.I
used dpkg to install it and now have it up and running.
I used Virtualbox on the 32 bit system to export the XP guest. It
produced XP.ovf and XP.vmdk which I transferred to my new machine.
When I try to import it on the Virtualbox there the inport wizzrd sees
the XP.ovf file but when I select it and click next I get a pop up
saying "failed to import appliance"
Can anyone who has done this please give me guidence?
