VirtualBox blocks my Windows key (reproducible)

Reported by: itmozart Owned by:

Host type: Windows


While I am running a Virtual machine, quite often (but not always) the Windows key of the host computer is locked, that is, it doesn't work.

Host: Vista Home Premium Guest: Vista Home Premium. CPU: Intel Centrino Duo

Actually, I remember this happening also with 1.5.

If the VM window has focus, it will grab the windows key. I can't reproduce your problem when the VM window doesn't have focus. Retest with the latest version (1.6.6 or 2.0) please.
