The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Nvidia, in the past of other companies such as Iagination Technologies, MIPS, Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

Passing command line arguments from host command line to guest

It looks like VirtualBox guestcontrol makes it easier to pass command line arguments and environment variables to an application started on the guest.

Unfortunately, Parallels does not.

More and more I regret having chosen Parallels instead of VirtualBox.

I will switch as soon as possible.

VBoxManage guestcontrol start [--exe] [--putenv][--unquoted-args]
