Five bug and a suggestion
|Reported by:||shaghayeghi||Owned by:|
I used Virtual Box for a few days. I installed Windows 7 and Windows XP as guest muchine. I really enjoyed using it and considering that it's free I think it's a very good product compared to Microsoft Virtual PC. Even VMWare workstation has limitation of 2 processors which is not enough for OSs like Windows 7, also saving and resuming state of your product is very quick which is a big point, but there was some bugs that I want to let you know about.
1- Ctrl + V in file name edit of "select a file for new hard disk image file" dialog causes the application to freez. 2- Mouse pointer is invisible after resume from a saved state. 3- When I installed Windows 7 as guest OS it couldn't install driver for sound hardware. I even changed the sound hardware but again same result. 4- Some times mouse pointer can't travel to every corner of guest screen and it's like there is invisible border that stops the pointer to go beyond also ocasinally mouse pointer jumps outside of guest machine screen and all of these issues can be solved by installing the Virtual Box additions on guest machine 5- It happend once when i tried to use network on guest machine it freezed and I couldn't close or stop the guest machine, then I closed the guest machine from taskmanager of host machine and restarted the host machine and when the host machine restarted Windows couldn't load, then I uninstalled Virtual Box network addapter from safe mode and then Windows loaded
By the way, Host OS in my computer is Windows 7 Build 7600 and my computer has a Intel Corei 7 processor with 6 GB of Memory. I also have a suggestion to improve the convinient of this product by adding the option of revert to last snapshot.
