Ticket #15982 (closed defect: fixed)
guest additions fails to start with special usernames
|Reported by:||saber002||Owned by:|
Host System: Windows 10 64bit Guest System: Windows 7 64bit Virtual Box Version: 5.1.6 Guest additions: installed
When I log into the guest system with a username "test", guest additions are working. When I log into the guest system with a username "test ö", guest additions are not working.
The problem is not the space character, it works with "test a". It is the german umlaut. If this character is part of the username (not the full name), then the additions won't start and furthermore all the functions like seamless integration and so on are not working.
