And I don't know how to get rid of it. If I try and disconnect it, I get an error dialog saying it doesn't exist.

Actually, it's not that easy sometimes. Once a network share is "disconnected" people have to ultimately go to the registry to "kill" it. And it has nothing to do with VirtualBox. I've been researching it all morning. Take a look: https://www.google.com/search?q=windows ... sconnected

- My shared folder is setup as: read-only, not auto-mount, permanent.
- In the guest, you could go to Explorer, Network, and browse to \\VBoxSvr\SharedFolder.
- This fails with GAs 4.3.22 (\\VBoxSrv is empty), it works fine if you downgrade to 4.3.20 (even in place).
- Guests that it fails: 2000, XP, 7, 8.1, 10 (b9841 and b9926), pretty much every Win guest.

After Guest Additions install, normal processing IMHO
Been using the VM for years, under VMWare Fusion and then VBox v3.x. Normal VBox release upgrade (i do delete previous before install) process was normal.loukingjr wrote:Seems odd I had working shared folders in W7 and W8.1 guests before I installed the new GAs but once I did socratis and I both had the same problem.
