VirtualBox 5.1.0 and 5.1.2 Guest Additions problem in Windows 2000 Guest

Reported by: bob3248 Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 5.1.2
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows


Host: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, Intel Core i7-4770K, 32 GB RAM Guest: Windows 2000 Pro, 512 MB RAM, VT-x/nested paging enabled, all other settings default

The guest additions worked properly in VirtualBox 5.0.24 and earlier. In 5.1.0 and 5.1.2 the guest additions icon does not appear in the system tray and resizing the guest display by dragging the edges of the window does not work and switching to full screen with host key-f does not change the display resolution of the guest. Shared folders do work correctly.

This problem happens in an existing virtual machine that I have used for years and in a new Windows 2000 VM with a clean installation that I created to test this issue. Other guest OS including Windows XP do not have this problem.

I tested the 5.1.2 Guest Addiitons and were able to reproduce the problem but with the latest 5.1.3 Guest Additions from here I was no longer able to reproduce it. Could you confirm?

Status: newclosed

Fix is part of 5.1.4.

I can confirm that both the system tray icon issue and the guest display resizing issue are fixed in 5.1.4. Thank you!
