Could you attach zipped minidump(s) for your crash(es) here?

ok, the trick worked.

Here is the link to the Dllhost-crash:

repro:

1. set photo viewer as default image viewer.
2. click on a PNG to open the picture viewer
3. close picture viewer again
4, click on a different PNG -> dllhost crashes.

Thanks a lot for the dump! It helped us find and fix the issue you observed. Below is a link to the trunk test build of VBox Guest Additions containing the fix.
It should be used with the host VBox trunk test build I posted recently.
Please give it a try and let me know how it goes.

!!!NOTE that this is a trunk build, which may not be stable since trunk is under a heavy development now, so use it for testing purposes only!!!

I've reproduced some weird behavior when running the Simulator in VS.. Investigating it and will get back as soon as I have some results. Thanks a lot for your report and for the steps to reproduce you gave.

We've fixed the issue with Visual Studio 2012 Windows Simulator on Windows 8.
Please try the following test build and let me know how it goes for you:

!!!NOTE that this is a trunk build, which may not be stable since trunk is under a heavy development now, so use it for testing purposes only!!!

Windows host: http://www.virtualbox.org/download/test ... 58-Win.exe
Extension pack: http://www.virtualbox.org/download/test ... ox-extpack
Let me know if you need a test build for another host platform.


Everything seems to be working now. I have only gotten one error and it happened when I accidentally rotated the simulator 360 degrees. Other than that it's been smooth and responsive.

Thanks for posting the update I could have never properly debugged my code without it.

I have not investigated yet your black screen issue, so no it does not..
I will let you know once I have some results on this issue. Thanks again for your help!

Keep in mind that to update/uninstall Guest Additions mentioned in this post,
you will need to follow the instructions I posted later on this thread.
The latest trunk test additions to be used for updating are posted here.

Here is test with current GA (4.1.51.78912) on OSX.

With 2d+3d accel. disabled, no bluecreen anymore, but the driver doesn't work, gives errorcode 37 after reboot. Same goes for enabling 2d and keeping 3d disabled.
2d+3d enabled combination has working driver after reboot, but it crashes OSX after playing around on guest.

Next I'll try to extract additions and install video driver separately.

I attached osx panic file + vbox log.

Well, non-wddm driver gave me the same result, so no need for screenshot. (code 37)

Thanks for the info. Could you also attach a VM log file here?
And yes, you can just keep watching this thread for updates.

Regarding kernel panic, could you please attach output of kextstat (launched before starting VM) in addition to kernel panic.
