|Freeware VM VirtualBox 4.2.16 Update:|
The v4.2.16 change notes for VirtualBox include 2 bugfixes related to OS X. One is just uninstall related but the other notes "Autostart: fixed VM startup on OS X".
(Several months ago a reader reported on problems running Snow Leopard Server in Virtualbox (v4.2.10 then) on an OS X 10.8.x Mac. (Using SLS for its Rosetta support to allow running older PPC code apps.) I'm curious if any updates since then have helped or any solution found. A reply to that post said SLS worked fine under Parallels 8.)
