Looking For "VirtualBox-5.1.22-r115126-MultiArch_amd64.msi

Postby Viorg » 24. Aug 2019, 19:08

I am having trouble Installing Oracle VM VirtualBox 6.0.10. in Windows 7 and Windows 10

The installing is asking for, in a disk, an older version "VirtualBox-5.1.22-r115126-MultiArch_amd64.msi" that I uninstall a while back and no longer have the download.

I understand I need to have the old version available to be able install any newer version.

I have been able to find MultiArch version 4.3.40 but not 5.1.22

See attachment for screenshot of the error
PS; There is no log to provide because I have not been able to intall anyting

Go to https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds_5_1 to get the installer for 5.1.22. Google for how to extract the msi from the installer exe.

If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
