I have virtual box Version 5.1.18 r114002 (Qt5.6.2) Apple OSx 10.12.3 on a macbookpro

My trackpad was working with the previous virtual box... I have downloaded and installed that latest, and the reproductible behavior is now the following :

when lauching VB : everyhthin OK When starting my virtual machine ( windows 10), the bluetooth icon in the menu bar is immediately shown broken... And the bluetooth trackpad doesn't work anymore then for the whole macbookpro The trackpad of the mac itself keeps working Bluetooth comes back OK in the menu bar when the Virtual machine is stopped... And the bluetooth trackpad also then ! Then , it is definitely linked to VB...

Thanks to solve it

It's usually better and faster, if problems like this one (configuration, question) get first addressed in the forums ( More than 95% of the issues are resolved over there, which keeps the developers focusing on the bug fixes and enhancements, and there is no need for another ticket to keep track of. For example, yours is not a bug and someone from the developers has to deal with it and close it as "Invalid".

Your problem is that you've enabled a too-broad USB filter for your VM, a filter that captures all USB devices, including your USB-to-Bluetooth internal adapter of your MBP.

If you want to continue the discussion, please open a new thread in the  VirtualBox on Mac OS X Hosts section of the forums. Be sure to say that you came from the bugtracker and include the ticket #.
