Ticket #4093 (closed defect: duplicate)
Guest Additions conflicting with app in Guest OS
|Reported by:||georgesc||Owned by:|
I am reporting a suspected bug when Guest Additions is installed. I have tried the end user forums for a solution for several weeks without finding a successful solution.
I want to run an application that connects to a Pervasive.SQL database. Both the Pervasive.SQL 8.6 software and the application are installed locally.
I did the following:
- Install the Pervasive.SQL software and application locally with the Guest Additions also installed. The software works perfectly.
- I then use the windows explorer to map the local drive to a new drive letter and change the shortcut path of the application to point to the new drive letter. The follow error occurs:
"Cannot create system lock file: ./TEMP/SYSLCK.DAT. File status: 9/004, Btrieve status: 11"
- If I remove the Guest Additions and run the application, the software works perfectly even via with the mapped drive letter.
The above steps were done when trying to isolate what causes the problem. Ideally, we want to run the application on a server via a mapped drive letter which connects to the Pervasive.SQL database on the server. The application also works perfectly in this configuration as long as the Guest Additions is not installed.
We have tried this with the Virtual Box v2.2.0 and v2.2.2 and with Guest Additions versions 2.2.2, 2.2.0, 2.0.0 and 1.6.0. The same problem occurred.
Conclusion: the guest additions is conflicting with the software when a network drive is involved.
