    Windows 10 VirtualBox Shared Folders Oddity

    I'm running VBox 5.0 on Windows 8.1 and have created VMs for Windows 7 and Windows 10 release 10240. In both VMs I have installed Visual Basic 6 (VB6).

    Everything is working fine except for one strange difference. When running the Windows 7 VM, I can double-click a VB6 project file located on a shared folder and the project will be successfully opened in VB6. However, when I attempt to do the same from the Windows 10 VM, a "Path not found" error is generated.

    Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions?

    Thank you for trying to help but recent changes to my system have made the problem disappear for me. I upgraded my main OS from Windows 8.1 to 10, so that I no longer require to run the Win 10 TP under VirtualBox.

Seems once you've connected a Network drive to W10 you can't get rid of it again -- I've done the checks to ensure that it isn't set to re-connect at logon. Cheers jimbo
