Menuet32 task switch bug in 5.2.18

Reported by: MikaelM Owned by:
Component: VMM Version: VirtualBox 5.2.18

Description

Menuet32 doesn't start anymore in any version after 4.2.38, including latest VB 5.2.18.

So when updating from 4.2.38 to 4.3.0, Menuets blue setup screen works fine, but multitasking after that halts. Menuet32 uses TSSs (task state segments) for task switching.

M32 available at Menuetos . net / download area

Running VB on Windows 7 Home Service Pack 1, Intel Core i3, M 380, 2.53Ghz

Just a note for the future - you could have just reopened #17979

Yes, the old ticket was closed because it was reported against a VirtualBox version long out of support... not because it was fixed. So in this case it would have been fine to reopen the ticket and show that the same problem still exists in the latest VirtualBox version.

The problem affects Intel CPUs as well as AMD CPUs more than about 10 years old. It will be fixed in a future maintenance release.
