XP D3D Guest Additions Enabled but not appearing

Postby idiomatic » 2. Dec 2017, 20:37

I'm not sure if this has been addressed before but I have installed guest additions through safe-mode with networking and checked both 2D and 3D enabled rebooted and the dxdiagnostic doesn't recognize either as being enabled and freezes when 3D isn't bypassed. I was curious if there was something I missed or this was a common error.

  • Follow a "start the VM from cold-boot" / "observe error" / "shutdown the VM" cycle.
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response (see the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form).
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
