Ticket #17443 (reopened defect)

Opened 4 years ago

Drag and drop operation from guest to host failed - Occurs when trying to move a file with 0kb file size -> fixed in 5.2.20

Reported by: lukemeow Owned by: pentagonik
Component: drag and drop Version: VirtualBox 5.2.4
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows

Description

Windows XP guest

After receiving this error I started transferring files one at a time and noticed that empty text documents with a file size of 0kb were causing the error.

Error info:

Drag and drop operation from guest to host failed.

Another drop operation already is in progress.

Result Code: E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057)
Component: GuestDnDSourceWrap
Interface: IGuestDnDSource {dedfb5d9-4c1b-edf7-fdf3-c1be6827dc28}
Callee: IDnDSource {d23a9ca3-42da-c94b-8aec-21968e08355d}

Each time the error occurs, I can no longer move any files and must restart the virtual machine.

VirtualBox does not crash, however When exiting the machine there is an Application Error

Error Details:

The instruction at 0x00007FF8C4742C98 referenced memery at 0x0000000000000028. The memory could not be read.

Interesting find. I tried to replicate it on an OSX 10.11.6 host with a WinXP and a Win7 SP1 VM, both running under VirtualBox 5.2.5 (120042), but it was working on both of them.

I did notice something "strange" in your log:

00:00:01.565209 Executable: A:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VirtualBox.exe 

Can you explain the "A:\" part? Are you using Portable VirtualBox or something similar?

A is my main installation location as C is an SSD which i try to keep only windows and little as possible on.

Might help if I also mention my host pc is windows 10 pro, Version 1709, Build 16299.192

Also the guest is WinXP Pro SP3

I am using Version "5.2.4 r119785 (Qt5.6.2)" though so maybe it is an issue with the windows version that doesn't occur in the OSX version

have added the logs, followed all the instructions the best i could but the guest log doesn't seem to provide much info.

I also found out that the transfer issue is only one way. Host to Guest can transfer the 0byte file fine, but Guest to host results in error.

I still experience this bug in 5.2.20 (sorry for duplicate: #18109)

Need to reopen this ticket.

Though I beleive #18109 has clearer explanation of the bug.
