Looks like the correct version is: Version 6.1.32 r149290 (Qt5.12.8)
Linux Mint 20.3 is based on Ubuntu 20.04.5 Virtualbox is up and running
However I am not getting my Win7 Client to run this is the error message Virtual box gives:
The virtual machine 'VM7' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1).
I want to do a clean Win7 install as a client on then Linux mint host but I am not even getting then VM to boot so I can do the install
the log file does not exist:
No log files found. Press the Refresh button to rescan the log folder /home/johann/VirtualBox VMs/VM7/Logs.
Any assist will be welcomed Thanx a stack!

The issue was related to my user rights in then folder where then VM is created - Insufficient rights and it bombed out - or so I assume as after i gave adequate rights then Win 7 Install is now running.
