All this discussion ... but just when is a fixed 2.2.1 likely to be released?

As it stands, the whole 2.2 experience is like pushing water uphill!

Sure, but that still doesn't give you easy access to just the Guest Additions iso image. I ended up extracting it from the debian package, which worked fine. But a direct download for either the VBoxGuestAdditions-2.1.4.iso or the installer for the Guest Additions would have bean easy.

Anyway, uninstalling the 2.2 Guest Additions and installing the 2.1.4 Guest Additions instead (click yes about replacing files which are newer) fixed the mouse integration issue I had with my XP guest.

I also revert back to Virtualbox 2.1.4 due to network issue on my Windows XP guest system. I needed to reconfigure every time my network card before booting my Windows XP guest system. Also the copy/paste option from host to guest and visa versa fails intermittent.

I regret uploading from 2.1.4 to 2.2.0 on Vista. This release caused a lot of network problem, like pidgin would no longer connect, so I figured I'd uninstall it, then reinstall minus the optional drivers.

The big problem is that the uninstaller is entirely broken, and rolls back the uninstall each time without so much as an error message. Disabling the network interface, removing the driver using device manager, and rebooting doesn't help. And the uninstaller won't run at all if I boot in safe mode.

Edit: Followed these steps to uninstall: http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/3701#comment:6

Looks like the axis/raw web interface example code (clienttest.java) was not updated to reflect the removal of getMachines2:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
clienttest.java:79: cannot find symbol
symbol  : method IVirtualBox_getMachines2(java.lang.String)


Fix is to simply change it to "getMachines" on the offending line.
