Can't change settings?

Postby fstpierre » 26. Oct 2007, 22:20

Hmm, I haven't seen this problem reported so far, so maybe I'm just doing something incredibly stupid... :?:

I can't change the settings of the host system (WinXp) through VirtualBox. The "preferences" icon under the machine menu is not highlighted, so I don't have access to it.

Using the command line manager (VBoxManage modifyvm WinXP -audio oss for instance is what I want to change) returns this log :



[!] FAILED calling audioAdapter->SetAudioDriver(AudioDriverType::ALSAAudioDriver) at line 3858!

Anyone?

Thanks

Francis



EDIT : BTW, I have no sound in the host. So it IS muted... :?

Hi Francis,

Once can't change settings for a VM that has a saved state.

IF one wants to make adjustments to settings (sound card, usb, etc), then either:

(1) highlight the VM in virtualbox, and press "discard", OR

(2) restart the VM, and the next time you close the VM, use the "shut down" option.

Settings will be available.
Regards,
Jon
