FWIW - I had the very same problems trying to get VB running a Windows 10 instance.

I tried a number of the suggestions posted previously in this thread. Each time I attempted to run Windows 10 and each time it crashed with the same message as described in this thread.

Steps I tried...

Added and then removed VB.app from Privacy settings (adding made no difference for me).
Ran VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/HidLedsSync 0 (also made no difference for me).
Noted the following message in my terminal console - [i]The default interactive shell is now zsh. To update your account to use zsh, please run `chsh -s /bin/zsh`.

Ran the above command and then re-ran VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/HidLedsSync 0

This time Windows booted up albeit with errors. The auto-fix in Win 10 ran for a while and it re-booted and then Win 10 started up again. Win 10 stated it could not complete recent updates so it rolled those back. Once complete, Win 10 login appeared and after logging in all is well now (except for the recent update it rolled back, will look into that later).

No meu caso funcionou o comando abaixo:
VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/HidLedsSync 0

Mac Catalina e VirtualBox 6.0.12

Correct. If you want to simply undo a "setextradata" setting, you run that command with the Token alone, no Value.

That did not fix it for me. If I click on the OSX desktop or anywhere outside the VBox VM window, the VM aborts. I turned off Mouse Integration, no joy. I checked and VBox is listed/checked under Accessibility. Weird. I am running VBox 6.0.12, on OSX 10.15, with a Win 10 Pro VM. As stated previously, it was working fine yesterday before I upgraded to Catalina.

Did you try the other method of turning off System Integrity Protection via Recovery Terminal then installing the latest test build? That worked for me, 2019 Macbook Pro on 10.15 Catalina.

If not, instructions here: https://developer.apple.com/library/arc ... ction.html

Thanks Vousdoo

VBox 6.0.12

All I did was the:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
chsh -s /bin/zsh

Exited the terminal and restarted then did the:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/HidLedsSync 0

Fired up VBox and it'll all been fine since. Both W10 and XP guests working fine.

I chose not to disable system protection as last time I did that for a similar problem (not with VBox) it created other problems. Glad I waited. I tried this solution and it worked. Thanks.

I used the command:
VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/HidLedsSync 0

and it worked. It seems like the crashing has stopped.

What does this command actually do, and do I need to get rid of it when a stable release is working?

Thanks.

I am having a similar and very strange experience. After upgrading to Catalina, my VMs (Windows and Ubuntu) run fine but if I click on any other window on the host (Finder for example), they instantly crash and I get an "Aborted" state.
