WS 7 major problems

Hi,

Support has aksed me to try WS 7 to overome a problem in 6.5.3 with guests not being locked into memory.

The problem still exists in WS 7.

Furthermore, WS 7 introduces two new serious bugs:

  1. Some USB devices won't connect to guest OS. In my case, my iPhone cannot connect to my Windows XP guest.

  2. Moving the mouse in and out of a guest creates a delay which makes guests difficult to use.

#2 was present in 6.5.2 and earlier. It was fixed in 6.5.3 but the problem returns in WS 7 (not as bad, but bad enough to be very annoying).

It's time to look at Open Source solutions, I think - I'm tired of paying for product and support and not having problems properly fixed.

regards,

RR

Is that a Linux host ? - on Windows this should be working with 6.5.3 - care to explain in more depth ?

Hi,

It's 64 bit hardware (a Dell E6500 laptop with 4GB ram).

Running Linux on the host - Ubuntu 9.04.
