#8844 closed defect (fixed)

Guest update notifications don't strip suffix

Reported by: Felix Geyer Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 4.0.6

Guest type: other Host type: other


When comparing the versions the guest additions should ignore the edition suffix.
If the version is really older it should strip the suffix in the notification text.

For example the guest additions in my Windows VM currently complain that I should update to 4.0.6_Ubuntu even though 4.0.6 is installed.

Thanks for the report; I'll have a look.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Found and fixed the issue; this should have been fixed within the next upcoming maintenance release of VirtualBox.

Please note that this then requires the new VirtualBox host version + Guest Additions.
