GoogleEarth doesn't run in Direct3X mode after enabling+disabling RDP

Reported by: olegk Owned by:
Priority: major Component: 3D support
Version: VirtualBox 3.0.8 Keywords: 3D, GoogleEarth, RDP
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

Steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Start guest VM with 3D acceleration and RDP server enabled
  2. If not already installed, install guest additions selecting Direct3D support and reboot VM
  3. Install GoogleEarth in your guest VM. At this point you should be able to start it in both OpenGL and DirectX modes (you can change this by going to Tools->Options in GoogleEarth).
  4. Shutdown GoogleEarth.
  5. Login to your guest from MS RDP client and attempt to start GoogleEarth. You will get black screen where Globe should appear in GoogleEarth.
  6. Shut down GoogleEarth and disconnect RDP client
  7. Attempt to start GoogleEarth again from console. You should see that attempt to start GoogleEarth in Direct3X mode will fail. OpenGL mode will still work.

I reproduced above with following host/guest combinations: Windows Vista/Windows XP and MacOS 10.5/Windows 7. I also verified that 3D support in the guest was still enabled after RDP client connection.
