Cc: Guest type: Windows

DO : start a 3D app in full screen mode, like Age of Empires 3 or C&C Red Alert 3. EXPECT : the app launches properly ACTUAL : the app cannot start, it always gets minimized.

This is a regression introduced with 4.3.xx release, at least for Windows 7 and Windows 8 guests.

RedAlert 3 Demo available there :

AOE3 demo available there :

Note that AOE3, if started in windowed mode, is not affected by the issue.

Edit : no longer reproducible with AOE3 under Windows 7 but still with RA3 under Windows 8.

This looks like the issue disappeared with VBox 4.3.6. Currently I think you can happily close this ticket.
