Guest Additions download

Postby takysoft » 16. Jul 2009, 20:35

from version 3.0.2 i can't find the guest additions.

i mean i know it's in http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/3.0.2/

but i could'nt find a direct link on the site.
maybe i'm the stupid one, but i thought it should be in the "Downloads" section. but it's not there:D maybe it's available elsewhere, but there should be a link to it in the downloads section...

or it was only me who could find it so hardly?

PS: just the same with "older builds"
every build is listed, but not the additions...

Ever thought about the possibility that it's shipped WITH the installer? When you download VB from the website, about 75% of the file size is the GA ISO. Just hit Devices > Install GA in the running VM window and the GA ISO will be mounted. If you already have an ISO or physical drive mounted, you have to unmount it first before it works.

Don't worry, common error here. Most users fail to see it or notice it when their GA doesn't mount properly, only because they already have an ISO mounted.
