Then I must have done something wrong. I will try it again. I tried to install the guest pack in the F.M. I will try to do it from a terminal if I can figure out the commands. From the F.M. the term runs so fast that I can not read it so I assumed that it installed correctly. This is my error.
EDIT: The guest pack I am installing is in the VB CD/DVD drive, will this make a difference? Thank you for your patients with me.
Before starting the VM, I set the CD/DVD drive to pass through mode... so it shows as Empty
, and attached to IDE Secondary
Then with the VM running
, I click on Devices --> Install Guest Additions...
An icon for the CD/DVD appears on the desktop along with a message box;
I choose Allow Auto-Run
and the terminal shown in the last reply
appears, and runs the installation script. I do nothing
as the script does the removal of the old Guest Additions and installs the new version, then press the Enter/Return key
when it's indicated to do so. The rest is as spelled out previously, shut down the VM, reboot, then choose the Auto-resize
The last item of business is to click on Devices --> CD/DVD Devices --> Remove disk from virtual drive
To return the CD/DVD device
to a normal
usable state, check the Host Drive <whatever> box
in Devices --> CD/DVD Devices
