Yes, this may very well be the case.
Thanks a lot - the shared folders did not work, that's right, I rather
thought it was a "not released for OSE" situation ;)
I don't use them anyway, more content with networking.

I installed these additions - they work, of course.
I also copied the VBoxService OSE 3.0.6 into it, and it still works.

IIRC, I had the same situation with other PUEL GA - copying the OSE
service into a PUEL GA installation worked.

So, can you tell me how to correctly install the shared folders?

Thanks a lot,
yours,
Sebastian
