Guest Additions

Hallo Profis,
in der installierten VM 5.2.26 habe ich das VM Extension Pack 5.2.26 installiert.
Wenn ich die VM starte wird mir die Guest Additions 5.0.18 angezeigt,
finde die Stelle nicht wo ich auf 5.2.26 updaten kann.

Besten Dank im voraus.
Gruss André

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.

Wenn das nicht da ist muss er erstmal Geräte - Gasterweiterungen einlegen... anklicken. :wink:

Do you have a CD controller set up in the VM Settings » Storage? If not, you should add one. There can be no CD if there is no CD controller.

Hallo socratis,
glaube die Stelle gefunden zu haben, siehe Bild
Dort steht unter Informationen/angeschlossen an "nicht angeschlossen"
Was kann ich machen?
In dieser VM liegen meine kompletten Firmendaten, habe Angst dort Veränderungen vorzunehmen

EN: believe to have found the place, see picture. There it says under information/connected to "not connected". What can I do? I don't know. My complete company data is stored in this VM, I am afraid to make changes there.

First of all; make a backup!!! And do *not* store all your company's data in a VM! You're playing with fire while you're strapped with dynamite!

Second, no, that's not the place. You're looking at the wrong one. I told you to look in the "VM Settings" » "Storage", do you have the CD Driver there? The part on the left that says "Empty" with the CD icon?

Hallo sokratis,
Thank you, it worked.
How do I get Guest Additions inserted in the CD drive to update them?

Hallo soratis,
it lacked the menu item "devices" in the display, so I was looking for a wolf after the guest extension.
Could update the guest extension now.
Thank you for your endless effort
