    I used the but had to uninstall the WDDM driver. BTW that is one of the uses of snapshots so you don't need to reinstall.

    Thanks kado897. I've never used snapshots before. Just tried it. I'll see if it works.

    no probs te7. I take a snapshot whenever I am doing something that may fail. It is very quick to back out and if it is successful you can always delete the snapshot and it will merge into the next snapshot up the chain. it is very flexible you can even build a tree of states you want to keep and swap between them.

    Just tried the snapshot. Installed guest additions to see. My system was dead. Restored the snapshot. Worked great. BTW I reinstalled the guest additions, didn't reboot when prompted, and uninstalled the WDDM driver. Everything is fine now.

    Sorry folks

    Indeed WDDM is still not ready yet.
    Just wanted to see the progress they've made.

    We are good without it for the moment.
    We'll see it better, some time after 4.1.12 maybe a 4.2 release of VBox soon.

    Until then we use the standard display.
    Thanks to you all for confirming this.

    Regards
