Upgrade to 6.0.14. This is not a Guest issue, this is an OSX Host issue. Merging the thread with the prominent one in the "OSX Hosts" section.

I am having the same problem. I upgraded to OSX Catelina 10.15 and my virtual Box Crashes every-time. When I start it from the Dock it is the same outcome as if I start in from the application folder, it starts for a little while then crashes. Report is below. I do not see any clear steps on resolving or work around for this issue so if anyone can provide clear step by step process to resolve this issue I would greatly appreciate it. I have colleagues that are afraid to upgrade their mac due to the number of VM's they have configured in Virtual Box. Thank you in Advance!

After upgrading my MB Pro to Catalina 10.15, I was experiencing the same problem with my Windows 10 Guest crashing that everyone else here experienced.

I just downloaded and installed the update to Vbox 6.0.14, and this fixed the problem for me.
My guest window now functions normally as it did before; no more crashes.
Interesting point was that I had to intentionally go to the Vbox download page to find 6.0.14; selecting "check for updates" through the Virtualbox app itself responded with "you are running the latest package". But again, 6.0.14 worked for me; hope the same for you, too!

Please do what everybody else is doing since yesterday, upgrade to 6.0.14, don't use the workaround.

The "update available" flag on the servers isn't set automatically when there's a new release. It's only set (manually) by the developers when they are confident that a new release won't be a bag full of worms... ;)

In order to remove the workaround, as it's been stated previously is to run the same command, but with no "0" value:

    VBoxManage setextradata global "GUI/HidLedsSync"

And once again, the generic "setextradata" command follows the pattern:

    VBoxManage setextradata global "<Token>" "<Value>"
If the "<Value>" is empty/non-existent, the "<Token>" gets removed, back to the defaults.

@danardi
Just because you have a crash, it doesn't make it the same crash!

Please open a new thread. Don't forget that we prefer ZIPPED text files, compared to chopped, more difficult, less convenient, bigger size, not-searchable and not-quotable image... ;)

Right. But you're running 6.0.14. So, it's a different issue. See my previous post.

As I said... a crash is not the same as another crash.

Here no problems.

I have a MBP 2018 and had Mojave 14 and VB 6.12 on it, and read first this topic before upgrading to Catalina. I first upgraded VB to 6.14 and then upgraded macOS to Catalina. After upgrading macOS VB ran flawlessly using a Win10 1903 guest and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS guest.

During (only the first) startup of VB macOS prompted with 'allow VB access to Documents and Downloads folder ?' which I consented, so shared folders worked as well. This is normal behavior of security infested Catalina, which is only an annoyance in the first time.

I did not need to change anything in the macOS settings other than this.

Solve with downgrading to Mojave.

Had these issues in Catalina. As dirty fix, downgraded to v5.2.34. App and all VMs work OK...
