Shared Folders - selecting Other causes R6025 -> Duplicate of #3694

Reported by: compeoree Owned by:
Component: GUI Version: VirtualBox 2.2.0
Keywords: R6025 Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Windows



Under Windows XP SP3 host and a Windows XP SP2 client selecting "Other..." on the shared folders dialog results in a "R6025 - pure virtual function call" error. This aborts the client. Client OS gets corrupted and has to revert to current snapshot.

How to Create

  • Start client
  • Right click on shared folder icon in lower right
  • Select Other... from Folder Path drop down list

Work arounds

  • Create a new snapshot
  • Click on Folder Name box before selecting folder path

I changed two things, so not sure which one actually fixed it.


  • Recently upgraded version 2.0.6 r39760 to 2.2.0 r45846.
  • Reverting back to current snapshot has no effect.
  • Installed all Microsoft updates on host.
  • On the same host but with an Ubuntu variant client (ArtistX), the shared folders work as expected.
  • VBox Additions installed

Work arounds allow folder selection, but causes a silent (no errors) abort of client upon clicking "OK"
Reverting snapshot and attempting again, success!

Work arounds seem hit or miss. Sometimes it will properly map, other times it aborts the client.

I confirm this issue, I think it should be fixed asap!

This also hit me. I had just creating a new virtual machine, and hadn't even had the chance to boot off .iso to install.

I then tried creating my virtual machine (Fedora 11 Beta on Wind0ws XP SP2) and then tried adding a shared folder, and again, it crashed.

I've never even got to the point where I use snapshots.

This is pretty much of a showstopper for me, as I use VirtualBox to test OS builds.

Can confirm the same bug (qt4vbox4.dll) under Windows XP SP3 host with Windows Server 2008 client (suspect this error is not client specific). Bug appears to be specific to the 2.2.0 version.

Of course, you can still type the path to the folder you want to share in the "Folder Path" box, rather than invoking the folder selection dialogue as a workaround.
