Effective immediately the install of VirtualBox 6.0.8 and 5.2.30 should simply work on macOS 10.14.5. Tried running a VM as a quick sanity check and noticed no unusual behavior.

So if you install 6.0.6, then you see this when launching VirtualBox.

  1. See the message from klaus above yours and please try 6.0.8:

  2. The error message means that you successfully installed 6.0.6. What you're seeing is a usage error, not an installation error as is the title of the thread. Please open a new thread with that problem and an appropriate title, preferably after having tried 6.0.8.

Did you notice the part where I said:

So, please open a new thread. Because you're not starting VirtualBox normally, you're starting it from a different shortcut.

Thanks... I now see that installing an old version did something weird with the shortcut, and if I launch the application itself, then this does not happen.
Works now - thanks!

  • No blocking prompts
  • I have run that command in recovery mode and still the same issue!
