Frequent crashes

Reported by: medeksza Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.0.0
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows


I have setup some Windows XP SP3 virtual machines to help offload some tasks from my Windows 2003 server. Right now I run these virtual machine in headless mode on a Windows XP SP3 host. I don't need a gui so I start the VM using this command line: VBoxHeadless.exe -startvm "Hal Cloud Instance" --vrdp=off

However, I get frequent crashes at least every other day. They all crash with the same message: Faulting application vboxheadless.exe, version, faulting module ole32.dll, version 5.1.2600.5512, fault address 0x0002cdbd.

Attached is also the log for this VM, cutting off the bottom since the log is about 7 MB of the follow message appearing every second:

00:03:14.926 ERROR [COM]: aRC=VBOX_E_IPRT_ERROR (0x80bb0005) aIID={09eed313-cd56-4d06-bd56-fac0f716b5dd} aComponent={Display} aText={Could not take a screenshot (VERR_TRY_AGAIN)}, preserve=false

Could this be a bug of the --vrdp=off option?

Sounds more like a duplicate of #7966. Could you try  this test build?

comment:2 Changed 12 years ago by medeksza

I am running the new test build and it hasn't crashed yet after about 2 days of running so that's good. However, the log file still gets saturated with the "Could not take a screenshot" error every second if I use "--vrdp=off". I just don't use that option anymore but I suggest if you continue to offer this option to change this behavior.

I have the same problem, crash with the same message

AppName: vboxheadless.exe AppVer: ModName: ole32.dll ModVer: 5.1.2600.5512 Offset: 0002cdbd

and this is VirtualBox 4.0.4. The crash occured when the machine powered on.

correction: when the machine has powered off.
