Error installing new GA on XP and Win7 guests

Postby ehrichweiss23 » 29. Nov 2021, 01:23

I'm using this on Arch Linux VirtualBox Graphical User Interface Version 6.1.30 r148432.

I just tried to run of my VMs and my Win7 guest asked me to upgrade the GA drivers but it errors out with what's below, and XP complains about me using a USB 2.0 driver before I can even boot so I have to change to USB 1.1, and then trying to update the driver gives pretty much the same error as below. Has something changed that I'm unaware of regarding Win7 and XP?

For the record, I saw something about possibly needing to update the cers via VirtualBoxCertUtil but XP gives an error that it's not a valid application which I suspect means it's 64-bit only.

A follow-up. I realized I hadn't tried to run vboxcertutil on my Win7 guest so I tried it, and it worked on Win7 but it did NOT fix the problem. What I did discover is if I used the GA disk for 6.1.22(?) or so, everything installed and worked just fine though apparently at some point USB 2.0 was removed for XP. I don't think I really need it that bad for the XP host.. I'm going to put any upgrades of either VB or GA until I hear this is fixed.

Re the certificate error, please let the devs know with a post on the Bugtracker.

Re USB 2, the Extension Pack matching the Virtualbox version must be installed in Virtualbox on the host. Guest Additions don't affect anything with USB.

Please check if your issues still exist in VirtualBox 6.1.34.
