Problems with Guest Additions in Windows 2000 guest after upgrade from 1.56 to 1.60

I have a Windows 2000 VM that worked well under 1.56 on a SuSE Linux 10.3 host. After upgrading to 1.60, I upgraded the Guest Additions in the VMto the one that came with 1.60. The guest VM now randomly hangs, sometimes at a blank desktop early in the boot process, other times after a few minutes have elapsed. Sending Crtl-alt-del just blanks the desktop, and sending an ACPI shutdown has no effect. Chkdsk shows no problems.

Programs runnning on start up are Commodo Firewall, Avast Antivirus and Spybot.

The problem you observed is probably related to a regression introduced in 1.6.0 which was fixed in 1.6.2.

That's good news. When will 1.6.2 be available for download?

comment:3 Changed 8 years ago by rschaffter

The upgrade to 1.6.2 seems to have solved these issues. Thank you.
