Description

VirtualBox 3.2.0

Chapter "8.28. VBoxManage guestcontrol"

The syntax for this command is very very difficult.

For such complex commands, an example must be provided.

VBoxManage guestcontrol exec "MyVM" "C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe" --arg "/C" --arg "dir /S 'c:\Windows\System32'" --verbose --wait-for stdout
