Maximum allowed screen size for Guest too small

Reported by: A20_user Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: GUI
Version: VirtualBox 2.0.0 Keywords: allowed Guest screen size
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows


(with Guest Additions) Vista Host, WinXP SP3 Guest The graphics card "VirtualBox Graphics Adapter" shows only 640x480 and 800x600 modes (8 MByte RAM are sufficient for more, Host is 1280x800) and if "Auto-Resize Guest Display" is on, that resolution, or the last used with that on (list all modes). 32 MByte does not help. I agree that 1024x768 does not fit into window, but the same 800x600 limit was in effect in full screen mode.

The statement in UserManual clearly refers to "host's screen size", not to "fit into Guest window" for the video mode / screen size limit.

I tried "VBoxManage ... GUI/MaxGuestResolution any" this is a work around.

Source looks like it checks "fit into Guest window".

Replying to A20_user:

Source looks like it checks "fit into Guest window".

Try installing the Guest Additions (Device-Install Guest Additions...). It did fix my problem with Solaris 10 Host - Windows XP guest where Windows works seamlessly in my wide resolution of 1600x1050.
