Ticket #1687 (closed defect: fixed)
Stardock Deskscapes interferes with VBox
|Reported by:||rwesterb||Owned by:|
I'm using Windows Vista x64 Ultimate as my host operating system. I have installed Ubuntu 8.04 as OS on my virtual machine. If I assign more than 300 MB (not really sure about the exact limit) of RAM to the virtual machine, I always end up with the following error message when I try to launch applications inside my guest OS:
"Unable to allocate and lock memory. The virtual machine will be paused. Please close applications to free up memory or close the VM.
Error ID: HostMemoryLow Severity: Non-Fatal Error"
These problems have occurred on both of the VirtualBox versions I have tried out, that is v. 1.6 and v. 1.6.2. My system has plenty of RAM, so that shouldn't be the problem. I have also tried several VM configuration options. My system briefly:
Windows Vista Ultimate x64 SP 1 Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 RAM 5 GB Nvidia 8800 GT
Please ask for log files if you need them!
