Ticket #253 (closed defect: invalid)
Guest Additions on Windows Host
|Reported by:||alteredcarbon||Owned by:|

Using a Win2k SP3 box with 512MB RAM. Windows = Host, Ubuntu 6.10 = Guest.
Guest additions.iso mounts just fine in virtualbox. It's when you try to run it that it fails.
After changing directory to the cd (per vb manual) and after executing the cmd "sudo sh ./vboxadditions.run" as root, the exact error is "sh: Can't open ./vboxadditions"
I have mounted/unmounted the vboxguestadditions.iso both manually as well as using the vb device settings interface with the identical results. I have also switched out "vboxguestadditions" for "vboxlinuxguestadditions, as is listed in the VB user manual to no avail.
I'm new to Linux/Ubuntu so I don't have a clue as to what needs to be done to workaround this problem in order to install linux guest additions on a Win2k host using VirtualBox.
