Description

I'm running:

  • Windows 7 x64 Enterprise w/ sp1
  • Virtualbox 4.1.8 r75467
  • Extension Pack 4.1.8-74713

I have a Duel Core Hyper threaded i5 laptop

I have a second monitor connected via a DVI cable to a Sceptre monitor set at a resolution of 1920 x 1200.

I just created a clean VM with Windows 7 x64 Enterprise + sp1, installed the Guest additions, applied any patches found on MSFT's update site. I can change the size of the vm window to the width of the 2nd monitor and the Autosize guest display feature adjustes the guest desktop. When I try to adjust the hight I can get to about 9/10 of the hight of the screen and the display automatically adusts to a smaller size. Same thing if I try to maximize the window.

This is not a problem with any of the VM's I created with earlier versions of your product. I have updated the guest additions in all of my vm's created prior to this version and they all maximize and adjust as expected.

Thank you.
