[feature-request] GuestControl execute must automatically handle extensions, like shell does

Reported by: Technologov Owned by:
Component: guest control Version: VirtualBox 4.0.8
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


Host: Windows 7 x64 + VBox 4.0.8

Guest: Windows XP + GA 4.0.8

C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox>VBoxManage guestcontrol execute "Windows XP V M01" "ping" --username Administrator --password 123456 --arguments " -n 2" --wait-for stdout

VBoxManage.exe: error: The file 'ping' was not found on guest.

When I change the above command to "ping.exe" it works.

Please handle extensions, according to guest's shell or desktop environment settings. Add ".exe" or python interpreter where appropriate. Automatically.
