Do you also see this memory leak if you disable 3D support for this VM?

comment:4 Changed 6 months ago by zhivotnoe

Unfortunately I've deleted this VM. I will test this configuration later.

comment:5 Changed 6 months ago by zhivotnoe

Looks like it works fine without 3D support.

  • Component changed from other to 3D support

Did your guest do something special when the leak occurred, i.e. some applications were run, etc.?
Does the leak occur with VBox 4.2.x?

Did your guest do something special when the leak occurred, i.e. some applications were run, etc.?

No, this is a newly installed Windows 8.1 from MSDN subscription. I installed a few apps, but they was not run. My host computer was not used whole weekend and for the monday's morning VM leaked to >7GB.

Does the leak occur with VBox 4.2.x?

I didn't use Windows 8 before. Other OSes I used didn't leak on old versions of VBox since 1.x.

Thank you for the report.  Here is a test build. Please could you install it and also install the Guest Additions provided by this build? Can you confirm that the memory leak is fixed? Thank you!

comment:10 Changed 5 months ago by zhivotnoe

I do not see the leak after update to VBox 4.3.2 I'll check your test build in few days to achieve better results.
