GUI: VM grouping not updating automatically if changed via VBoxManage

See discussion in

With the VirtualBox UI (Main window) open, existing VMs are cloned and moved into groups via VBoxManage. The actual group change is done correctly (can be verified by viewing the VM information via VBoxManage or by closing and re-opening the VBox UI Main Window. However, with the window open, the group change is not refreshed and displayed when the change happens. I would expect the grouping change to be visible instantly, similar to the VM state (stopped, running, aborted, ...) being also refreshed automatically.

We just released VirtualBox 7.0.6 and 6.1.42. This issue should be fixed in these versions. You can download it from (or for 6.1 build).

Hi, thanks for fixing this issue. I can confirm that the behaviour has been corrected with v7.0.6. However, v6.1.42 still behaves the same as before.
