VirtualBox 4.3.24 released

VirtualBox 4.3.24 recently released, is a cross-platform virtualization application that installs on your Intel or AMD-based computers, and runs on Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris operating systems. It extends the capabilities of your computer so that it can run multiple operating systems (inside multiple virtual machines) at the same time.


This is a maintenance release. The following items were fixed and/or added:

  • VMM: emulation fix for the ENTER instruction under certain conditions; fixes Solaris 10 guests (VT-x without unrestricted guest execution)
  • VMM: fix for handling NMIs on Linux hosts with X2APIC enabled
  • NAT/NAT Network: fix connection drops when the host’s DHCP lease was renewed
  • NAT: don’t crash on an empty domain list when switching the DNS host configuration
  • PXE: re-enable it on Windows hosts
  • Shared Folders: fixed a problem with Windows guests
  • Audio: improved record quality when using the DirectSound audio backend
  • VBoxManage: when executing the controlvm command take care that the corresponding VM runtime changes are saved permanently
  • Windows Installer: properly install the 32-bit version of VBoxRes.dll on 32-bit hosts
  • Linux hosts / guests: Linux 4.0 fixes
  • OS/2 Additions: fixed mouse integration
  • X11 Additions: fixed a sporadic failure to deactivate virtual screens
