Guest W7-32Bit hanging with 6.4.0

Reported by: ufotech Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 6.0.4
Keywords: Guest hanging Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows


After upgrading to 6.0.4, my long used Windows 7 32Bit guest hangs after a few minutes or sometimes hours. It seems to work allright at first.

No specific action has been identified which leads to it hanging. It happend while browsing the internet, using the file-explorer and even during logout or shutdown.

The VM has to be killed - no other ways to shut it down. It happend 4 times now, definitively too often for my understanding - and it never happened with 5.2.

I have already upgraded the Guest-Additions, to no avail.

Other guests (e.g. W10 64Bit) work fine on the same host - even more stable in terms of audio I dare say.

I do use dual-screen, which is a very useful feature - one reason for having upgraded from the very stable former versions.

Here a few components I am using:

  • veraCrypt encrypted filesystem mounted
  • KeePass

Latest instance of stall when starting KeePass (Portable) from an auto-mounted VirtualBox-share (X:-drive). This share, on the Host, is an ownCloud-synchronized directory.

Hope you may find a fix.
