Host: Windows XP Guest: Debian GNU/Linux
ERROR: Invalid session type 'gui' Details: code E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057), component Machine, interface IMachine, callee Unknown Context: "OpenRemoteSession(a-)session, uuid, sessionType, env, progress.asOutParam())" at line 531 of file 531 of file VBoxManage.cpp
No log file is generated.
The only other option available is to use SDL, which isn't an option. This bug effectively means VirtualBox OSE is unusable in Windows.
Problems with SDL: keyboard mapping issues - shift/alt/altgr/arrow keys don't work. Fullscreen doesn't resize desktop properly, mouse cursor not visible in full screen, crashes randomly for no reason etc
