Wow... *actually* expecting USB to work on a VM?? 

As Im sure you found... NFL (Not Likely... the 'F' is silent :-) ).

There just are some things that virtualization is virutally useless for..
But for some applications, it does have some virtue..

I've attempted it using the ACID distro under KVM, but it failed miserably. I couldn't get the URI to communicate to the virtual machine, but it may have been my own error, so YMMV :) 

If you try it out and it works let us know as I would still like to consider virtualizing mine as well....

Anyone 
here ever used a virtual machine engine like virtualbox to run a node or many 
node from a computer?


 
I ask cause at my club repeater we have a computer that is pretty good 
(dual 2.8 ghz cpu with 4 gig ram running windows 7 
and we have some software running on it.
 
And i really cant switch this computer to linux.
 
so if I run the acid distro from a virtual machine and link the USB uri to 
that machine (wich is not too simple but doable) I think I would be able to run 
the app_rpt software while keeping the win 7 machine running smooth..
 
so anyone did that before??
