Hi,

got the error: It seems that you do not install the Shared Folders 
(correctly), so an internal pipe which gets modified in case of ACL is 
not found; that caused VBoxService to stop responding.

I fixed the issue and will send you a private link to a test build so 
that you can verify it as well.

Good luck,
-Andreas.
