    Anybody know how to change the screen resolution? Currently, the max resolution I get is 800x600.

    Thanks

    Virtualbox display resolution in mac

    I tried installing "Guest addons" from the Menu at "Devices" when my vm is active, but I got ERROR. Just wondering how to fix this.

    I have tried: VboxManage controlvm WinXP setvideomodehint "1280" "800" "32" but it does not work. :confused:

    Help please :(

    Are you running Ubuntu 10.10? VirtualBox 3.2.8 doesn't support that version yet.
