Building VBox 6.0.24 Guest Additions Windows

Post by YOYOBOY »

Hi guys,

i am trying to build the Guest Additions for Vbox 6.0.24 (it needs to be exactly this version) on windows10 for quite some time without success.

I tried out all different kinds of VS-Versions (2010, 2013, 2015, 2019) in combination with WDK 7600.16385.1 and WDK 8.1.
The best results were obtained with VS2013 and WDK 8.1.

I installed the following packages:
  • OpenSSL64_1.1.1t
    WDK 8.1
    Visual Studio Professional 2013 with Update 5
    MS build tools 2013
    sdk 8.1
    python 3.10.10
via cygwin:
  • cmake

The configuration process ended without errors:

Execute env.bat once before you start to build VBox:

The build process did a good job of compiling for the first 4-5 minutes, but ended with the following failing command:

While compiling I also had some warnings.

Threads in this forum were helping me a lot with the testing process.

Does anyone of you have an idea how I could manage to finish the compiling process?

Please tell me if you need more info.
