Reference forum:

I recently upgraded to 4.3.26 and now I'm unable to run my batch file that launched my VM with high priority because it seems that there are now 3 different processes that end up getting run. The parent process has the high priority but the actual VM does not which makes it slow. Here is the batch file, not much to it. Anyone found a workaround for this, or should I report it as a bug?

Batch File contents: start "name" /high "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VirtualBox.exe" --comment name --startvm 1941c965-3dc5-4326-85ae-4400ea58b90d

Things that I've tried without any success:

  • running the batch file as admin
  • setting VirtualBox.exe to always run as Admin
