Application Crash or sudden exit

Postby JPS1 » 26. Sep 2019, 00:43

Hello,
Using Windows 10 host running Windows XP VM. Virtualbox version 6.12. On going issue of application suddenly closing or crashing. No consistency to point and time of crash but happens randomly when application is interacting with SQL server.
My suspect timeout or network interruption. Is this common ?

Which application? Is it running on the host PC or the guest? Please be specific.

Sorry for being vague. Vbox (Windows XP guest) is running on host machine (Windows 10). Application crashing is an old app called RMIS running on guest, a retail management system. Looks like a VB app connecting to sql server. I've enclosed logs
Thank you

No, it's not. Get the facts straight...
00:00:02.440000 VirtualBox VM 6.1.0_BETA1 r133315 win.amd64 (Sep 16 2019 10:10:04) release log
That's the 6.1.0 beta version, not the imaginary 6.12, there's no 6.12. Please try to be more accurate in your problem description/presented evidence, it would really help. Moving to "VirtualBox Beta / Release Candidate Feedback" from "Windows Hosts".

00:00:02.593097 Guest OS type: 'WindowsXP'
00:00:02.499392 Host RAM: 7985MB (7.7GB) total, 5186MB (5.0GB) available
00:00:02.807365 RamSize <integer> = 0x000000013e700000 (5 342 494 720, 5 095 MB, 4.9 GB)
You have given to your 32-bit guest an amount of RAM (5095 MB) that will never be seen. A 32-bit OS can typically see around 3.5 GB. I wouldn't bother with more than 3 GB (3072 MB). That's more than enough for a WinXP guest. Go to the VM Settings » System » Motherboard » Base Memory: set that to 3072.

00:00:02.807582 3DEnabled          <integer> = 0x0000000000000000 (0)
00:00:02.807587 VRamSize <integer> = 0x0000000001000000 (16 777 216, 16 MB)
00:00:03.695842 GUI: 2D video acceleration is disabled
On the other hand, the amount of VRAM that you have assigned is too low. Go to the VM Settings » Display » Screen. Enable 2D and 3D acceleration. Increase the VRAM to the max 256 MB. Start the VM...

00:00:02.807363 NumCPUs   <integer> = 0x0000000000000002 (2)
00:00:03.189979 CPUM: Physical host cores: 2
You have assigned all your CPUs to the VM. The host is going to run low on resources, since VirtualBox cares about physical processors (cores), not logical ones (threads).

00:00:09.999712 VMMDev: Guest Additions information report: Version 5.2.30 r130521 '5.2.30'
You need to install the Guest Additions that match your main VirtualBox program. With the VM window having the focus, go to the host's menu "Devices" » "Insert Guest Additions CD Image...". If not prompted by auto-run, run "VBoxWindowsAdditions.exe" from the CD. Make sure there are no errors or suggestions during the install.

That installer box has a decided Windows-10-ish look about it. Doesn't look XP-y at all.

Here's the XP GA's installer:

Here is the same installer mounted on my Windows 10 host:

Notice how your screenshot looks like my Windows 10 screenshot.

You aren't by any chance trying to install Guest Additions on the Host OS? That won't work...

The guest window, Devices menu, "Insert Guest Additions CD Image" menu choice works super easy for getting the installer going in the guest OS. Note that if your guest OS has Autorun turned off, you can find the installer exe in the guest's virtual CD drive.

BTW, why am I seeing a 6.0.12 GAs installer, when last time I checked you were running VirtualBox VM 6.1.0_BETA1 r133315? Did you download the GAs separately? The 6.0.12 GAs ISO?

It's best if you follow the advice of 'scottgus1'...

I managed to update GAS and other settings. I am still experiencing the sudden app termination or hanging. Further analysis has shown that network connection interminacy may be the problem.

Take a look at the thread "Windows 10 VM Crashes on Shutdown", sounds awfully familiar to your problem, maybe I should merge the threads.

The idea is that you pretty much update to the latest beta, which is "masqueraded" as the latest Development Snapshot. See if that helps...

I'm not! I use a MacBookPro 15" from 2015, yet I still had that problem... ;)
