#15792 new defect

Switching between Guided and Expert modes in Create Virtual Machine window loses settings

Reported by: Donuts Owned by:
Component: GUI Version: VirtualBox 5.1.2

Guest type: all Host type: Linux


I noticed a small problem when creating a VM using the GUI. Lubuntu 16.04 x86-64 host.

Click New, then when the Create Virtual Machine window appears type something in the Name field and change the Type and Version fields.

Click Expert Mode. The name and OS fields get reset to the default blank and Microsoft Windows / Windows 7 (64-bit). Similarly you can change those then click Guided Mode, and those fields reset again.

Change History (4)

Under Windows Host same problem

Same on OSX host, so I guess it's safe to call this one a cross-platform one. ;)

It's more of an annoyance, but still it's a valid one. Mostly replying to Cc: myself...

+1, this is irritating and probably quite easy to fix.

Just wanted to open a new ticket because of this behavior and found this one. Still here in a new version 6 beta. Not a show breaker but annoying and not what one would expect from the UI today and in last 25 years.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
