Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Host: Windows 7, x64, VBox 4.0.4

I have same set of VMs, and somehow they all became invisible in the GUI, possibly as a result of data corruption of either "VirtualBox.xml" or of some VMs.

All existing VMs are registered, but invisible via GUI. All new VMs created instantly become instantly invisible via GUI as well.

They are accessible from "VBoxManage", so I can list VMs and even start VMs.

The GUI should correctly process even corrupted file, so user can keep working, even if losing some data.
