Ticket #3226 (closed enhancement: duplicate)
Store "VirtualBox.xml" in another place or don't use it anymore
|Reported by:||Oungawak||Owned by:|
The virtual machines can't work without ".VirtualBox\VirtualBox.xml" (which contains some "keys used to check if the VMs are OK") stored in the user's folder. This way to proceed may be convenient on Linux but not on Windows because this path can't be (easily) modified and is stored by default on the system partition.
I have some ideas to solve this problem :
1) Find a way to not use this file anymore
2) Store "VirtualBox.xml" in "My Documents" (this path is user defined)
3) Store "VirtualBox.xml" in a user defined folder (like the VDI and machines files, also I think there is no need to separate theses locations, you can simply regroup all theses files in only one user defined folder)
