Photoshop CS5 (trial) installer blows up the VM

Reported by: tomservo Owned by:
Priority: major Component: VMM
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.0 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Solaris


When trying to install the Photoshop CS5 trial version in a 64bit Windows 7 virtual machine, running Adobe's installer (not the initial 7zip unpacker bundled with the download), it progresses roughly to 75% and then the VM goes into guru meditation.

Host is Solaris Express 11 snv_151a, guest is Windows 7 64bit fresh install (not yet activated) without updates but guest additions installed. Machine is a Core 2 Quad 9450 with 8GB of ECC RAM.

The issue can be reproduced 100%, with PAE/NX on and off.

Logfile of a crash is attached to this report.

What happens if you turn off 3D Acceleration and retry ?
