Virtualbox removes shared units

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Virtualbox removes the shared units where I have any Builder C++ application placed in the shared unit.

To replicate it:

Create a "Hello World" console application with Builder C++ 6.0 like the above:

    #include <iostream>
    int main(int argc, char* argv[])
        using namespace std;
        cout<< "Hello World";
        return 0;

Save the project in a shared unit of Virtualbox.

Now, click "Run" to execute the program.

The first time, it usually works fine, execute it several times (between 4 and 10). Finally, an error message appears: "Could not find program: E:\MyApp\Myapp.exe" Now, if I start the Windows Explorer in the guest OS, I can see my shared unit, but I cannot open it. Also, I can see my other shared units and I can access without problems.

The only way that I have to open it again is to shutdown the guest Windows and start it again.

Does somebody have a similar problem? How can I solve it?

Thank you

Since not everyone has Borland something to compile this stuff, can you make a static build (.exe) and upload here?

The static build works fine, no errors, and shared units do not disappear. The problem only appears when I run the application from Builder C++. Probably someting related with the debug mode, I do not know.

I have found another ticket that could be related with the same problem, at
