VBox 4.3.14 has major problems, discussed on VBox forum. 4.3.12 is stable. ROS pre-load installed fine, no error messages, but VBox suggested a v-disk of 20GB rather than ROS 10GB, no way of changing that.
The Lotus install had to be done from Setup.exe as the MSI installer would not run. It was using the Lotus CD on drive "H:" The first install I tried everything except FastSite, that managed to get 123 and Freelance files written, then hung fatally. The second install I went for only WordPro and 123, that got as far as writing the Registry entries, then hung fatally.
There are incidental issues with graphics not showing correctly, and Explorer unable to handle large folders--this causes fatal hangs. I am unable to say if these are related to the install problem.
The files uploaded are from the first install attempt. I do have a "saved state", 63MB, but we'll need to discuss this.
