Version: VirtualBox 4.2.6 Keywords: mouse pointer hourglass windows guest

After the 4.2 guest additions were installed the mouse pointer and hourglass were corrupted (bright white with black shadow and lacking any detail - looks like low resolution black & white).

The information you provided is not sufficient. How do you access the VM, do you use an RDP client or do you use the VBox GUI?

It is started and accessed via:

VBoxManage startvm xp32 --type headless
VBoxManage controlvm xp32 setvideomodehint 1920 1156 24
rdesktop -D -g 1920x1156 localhost:3389 &
wmctrl -r rdesktop -e '0,0,0,1920,1156'

This has worked flawlessly for 4.1.8.

Strange, when starting via the VBox GUI there is no corruption.
