VBoxManage: VirtualBox ver.5 - copyto & copyfrom not worked

Postby xvaker » 28. Jul 2015, 10:14

I need help ...

VirtualBox ver.5 - commands "copyto" and "copyfrom" don't work in the guest Windows XP ... but VirtualBox-4.3.12-93733-Win works perfectly

Could you help me?

My command line:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
"C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe" guestcontrol 495155c1-d750-443e-b47e-34fad923a0c3 --username administrator --password admin copyto D:\testfile.txt --target-directory C:\testfile.txt

... this command has an empty output ...

P.S. I tried different commands ...

I experience the same problem with multiple hosts and guests (all Windows based, though) and with Guest Additions through 4.3.27 to 5.0.8.
