[Resolved] Problems running excel in guest XP vbox

Postby NewLineHomeDesign » 20. Aug 2019, 13:55

Hi, I am running windows 10 pro host and windows XP 32-bit guest. I am having problems running running pivot tables in excel/access microsoft 2000. It keeps loading after its done and if I click on anything while its loading it aborts my entire VB and closes it. Im running virtualbox 5 still because I'm having problems with my resolution on VB6. Anyone that can help me get this fixed or help with virtualbox 6 would help.

Host machine: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8565U CPU @ 1.80GHz 1.99GHz 16GB 64-bit

Thanks

Please let me know any other info you may need to help and how to go about getting you the info

Greatly appreciated! :D

Without a complete ZIPPED VBox.log there's not that much we can say...

Just out of a hunch, can you see if disabling 3D acceleration for the VM fixes it?
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
