Seems this is a known issue on windows host, any ideas to fix it?
Currently, VirtualBox.exe requires MTA to operate correctly, but OLE Drag/Drop requires Single-thread apartment (STA) threading model.
I tried a few things for a few days, but not working. With STA, virtualbox.exe accepts ole drops, but it will crashes at some point. With MTA, drag/drop does not work.
This is a major obstacle to implement dnd.
