[WorksForMe] VirtualBox 5.2.20 immer in Snapshots - Bug?! (#18111)

Postby VM-F4n » 6. Nov 2018, 09:52


ModEdit; related ticket: #18111: Always in Snapshot-View - 5.2.20

Vor kurzem bin ich von VirtualBox 5.1.x auf 5.2.20 umgestiegen und habe dann einmal die Snapshot-Funktion benutzt.
Seit dem, wenn ich VirtualBox starte, sehe ich immer die Snapshots anstatt die Konfiguration der VM. :roll:
Selbst wenn ich oben auf Konfiguration klicke, dann sehe ich diese nur so lange wie ich VirtualBox offen habe.
Nach dem Schließen (von VirtualBox) und erneutem Öffnen sehe ich wieder die verflixten Snapshots anstatt die Konfiguration der VM! :evil:

Wie stelle ich das wieder als "Standard"-Ansicht um? :?:

Bug??? :shock:

DeepL translator wrote:Recently I switched from VirtualBox 5.1.x to 5.2.20 and used the snapshot function once.

Since then, when I start VirtualBox, I always see the snapshots instead of the VM configuration. Even if I click on Configuration above, I only see them as long as I have VirtualBox open. After closing VirtualBox (and reopening it) I see the darn snapshots again instead of the configuration of the VM!

How do I change this back to the "default" view?

Bug?????

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Could you attach a screenshot? The GUI in 5.2.x has changed...

BTW, for translation help, see https://www.deepl.com/translator (this is better in German) and https://translate.google.com/

I just noticed that you opened a ticket for this:
  1. Please do not open a ticket, unless it's confirmed in the forums. It wastes developers' time if it's not a bug (which is most probably not).
  2. Please do not characterize something in the thread Title as a bug, unless it's confirmed.

A screenshot doesn't help! :roll:

Open VirtuaBox, click on any vm, go to "snapshot-overview" and create a Snapshot, than go back to "config-overview", close VirtualBox, start VirtualBox again and you don't will see the vm "config-overview" just you will see the "snapshot-overview"!

I can't reproduce the problem. What's your host and VirtualBox version?

In the toolbar, click on the down arrow in the "VM-Tools", select "Konfiguration", then select "Sicherungspunkte", then once more "Konfiguration". Shutdown VirtualBox. Wait for 1 min...

ZIP the following file and attach it: "C:\Users\<you>\.VirtualBox\VirtualBox.xml".

Why would the problem be solved if you attached a ZIP file to a forum?!?! :roll:

Click-and-Drag the "Konfiguration" button to the left of the "Sicherungspunkte" one. The button that's on the left is the one that VirtualBox opens with...

PS. Do not XXX any virtual UUIDs in the future. Read my signature...

The problem is NOT solved with attaching the zip!
Read again! :wink:

I told you what to do. If you did it, I want to see a picture (cropped to the area of interest, not your whole desktop) plus a new VirtualBox.xml. If you don't want to post your XML, open it in a text file and look for the following line:
<ExtraDataItem name="GUI/Toolbar/MachineTools/Order" value="Details,Snapshots"/>

If it's not exactly like that, then you simply didn't do what I told you. Simple...

It seems that you edited (and softened) your message while I was replying. Good...
