Ticket #7633 (new enhancement)
Add an example of scan codes for VBoxManage controlvm
|Reported by:||paulehoffman||Owned by:|
It is not clear from the documentation how to send Ctrl-Alt-Del to a vm using 'VBoxManage controlvm'. The solution is far from obvious, but the utility is high (as witnessed by the fact that there is a command for it in the GUI console. I propose adding the following bullet to 8.11:
- VBoxManage controlvm keyboardputscancode allows you to send keystrokes to the virtual machine. This is particularly useful for virtual machines that are running headless. The keystrokes are entered as the hex values of the scancodes. To send Ctrl-Alt-Delete, use the sequence "1d 38 53 b8 9d".
