Virtual Application Mode Not Working 6 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0
I have a weird problem. When I attempt to start an application in virtual application mode the app doesn't run. I can start the VM in full screen or launch it from the start menu of the virtual machine without any problems. If the vm is shutdown the icon will launch the vm but the application never appears. This issue just started happening.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is this a dos program (16-bit) or regular Windows app? 16-bit program will have the problem you mentioned.

Also you can try to check the property of the shortcut, make sure it points to the right target. If the shortcut worked before, but it started to fail recently, something must have changed.

Well the issue is with any application. The shortcuts haven't changed and even if I start it from the host machine start menu the applications won't run. I don't know what changed. I even ran a system restore on the host computer.

Okay this is weird. But I reinstalled the guest additions and it started working again.
