Error: Can not make a VDI immutable

Reported by: maddes.b Owned by:

I installed a clean Windows XP and tried to make the corresponding VDI immutable. Unfortunately I was not able to do this, no matter if it was relased or not, or even registered or not.

Here is the error log:

VBoxManage.exe modifyvdi wxp_clean.vdi -type immutable

FIXED in 1.3.4, please close this bug.

I was to able to set a VDI to immutable with 1.3.4, the immutable setting has been moved to the "registerimage" option. I released the VDI from the virtual machine, unregistered it and re-registered it as immutable.
