How to check which version of virtualbox I am using

Postby AIM28256 » 27. May 2019, 16:05

Host OS: Mac OS Majove 10.14.5
OS installed on virtualbox: Oracle Linux 7.6
Virtualbox version: ??

How do find which version of virtualbox I am using?

My apologies for asking this simple question, I am not able to find it on my installed virtualbox or google search.

Thanks.

I found the answer: click on virtualbox --> On top of your screen click Virtualbox next to file ---> Click on About Virutalbox.

Thank you.

There are normally conventions for where an app displays such information. On Windows it is nearly always found in the "Help|About.." dialog box. However conventions may be host OS specific, so I'll move your topic to "OS X Hosts".

And that convention is respected by VirtualBox on OSX, I'm surprised that the OP didn't know that part. Maybe a new OSX user?

Just for completion there's also the universal alternative CLI option. From the Command Prompt/Terminal you can get the version information with the command:

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