Shared folders in VM on Windows and Ubuntu

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)


I have a VM on external disk that I'm using on both Windows and Ubuntu.

The problem is that when I set Shared folders on Windows, VB on Ubuntu does not want to read VM xml config.

I have to manually change/delete shared folders entry in editor to be able to see the VM in the VB GUI.


Shared folder path 'c:\' is not absolute.
Result Code: NS_ERROR_INVALID_ARG (0x80070057)
Component: SharedFolder
Interface: ISharedFolder {64637bb2-9e17-471c-b8f3-f8968dd9884e}

Only Refresh and Delete is possible.

I know that shared folders differ depending on the host, but that shouldn't prevent us to change it in the GUI.

Even better, VB should ignore (maybe with some red alert) invalid shares. It is not a critical error.

Best regards,
