Shared folders path error

Reported by: travisf Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: GUI
Version: VirtualBox 2.0.0 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows


When sharing the C drive or any other drive on Windows XP, VBox states it needs a full path. What is happening is that when you click on the Other option in Folder Path drop down and browse to C or other drive, VBox only places C: in the path field. It should place C:\. The fix is to manually put the \ in the path.

(Vista Host, W2000 guest) Selecting a shared folder from GUI while Guest is running: The initial location is always C:\Windows\system32 but not the folder last visited, or desktop. Selecting a drive, e.g. E:, suggested name is E: and is bad because of the ":".
