  1. 1:57 it says failed to save the settings. The machine is not mutable or running (state is saved).
    Result code: VBOX_E_INVALID_VM_STATE (0x80BB0002)
    Component: SessionMachine
    Interface: IMachine {85632c68-b5bb-4316-a900-5eb28d3413df}

  2. This has not worked for me. I am running Server 2008 VM in VBox, running Win 10 on my physical laptop. I have added Adobe Deployment shared folder to the settings/shared folders option for Server 2008, boot up the machine, nothing. Any tips?

  3. hi, good stuff.. much better than the made in india videos.. Do you have a video on getting USB devices that are connected to the host machine, to show up on the guest machine? Thanks

  4. Hi sir – how and where did you get the Ubuntu virtual machine?
    Another question is that: Can this file share process be done to multiple host users?
    (That is, can I treat the Virtual Machine as the file server that serves many end point local laptops which are connecting to it?)
    or is this not achievable?

  5. it says it cannot find that frickin 'vboxsf'. searched the web for over 1 hour nothing seems to work. why is it so damn complicated? it doesnt work in vmware either.
    ill just install linux at this point its easier than sharing a folder with it.
