Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Hello,

If I start VirtualBox GUI and launch Virtual Machine after restart it starts OK, but when I close the virtual machine and VirtualBox GUI. It I try to start VirtualBox GUI to launch some virtual machine, process starts, but no GUI shows. If I look at task manager the process VirtualBox and VBoxSVC are running.

After reading some info on site I added two environment variables VBOX_GUI_DBG_AUTO_SHOW=true, VBOX_GUI_DBG_ENABLED=true, but that doesn't help, when I look in VBoxSVC.log.

I also tried running virtual machine by using VirtualBox --startvm --debug <machine name>, but it doesn't work as well. Same goes if i try to run from VBoxManage. When this happens VBoxManage hangs on every command I try to pass, like listing or starting virtual machines. Hangs like it sits on command line and nothing happens.

In all the cases started application VirtualBox/VBoxManage doesn't consume resources or processor time according to task manager.

I don't know if you use windows events, but there are no warning or error messages in windows event viewer.

I tried downgrading to versions 4.1.4, 4.1.2, 4.1.0. While downgrading I uninstall VirtualBox from "Programs and Features" then install the older version. In all installations I also install VirtualBox Extension Packs for the corresponding version I am installing.

I am attaching two VBoxSVC.logs - First is on hanged VirtualBox. Second is on last started guest - Which is Windows 2003 R2 server.

Hi,

Without any more information we cannot help you. How to reproduce your problem? We also need VBoxSVC.log, VBox.log and VBoxStartup.log.

Please also attach the VBoxStartup.log file. This one should be located in the Logs folder of your VM Machine folder.

Could you retry with VBox 4.3.20? If it still does not work, could you again attach the VBoxStartup.log file from such a VBox 4.3.20 session?
