Can VB5 and VB6 be installed on the same host

Postby Nap » 18. Apr 2019, 13:38

A question about upgrading VB:

Is it possible to install both VB5.2.28 and VB6.0.6 on the same host thus allowing 32bit guests to run using the older version?

No, due to the nature of VirtualBox you can only have one version installed on the host at any given time.

VirtualBox v6.0.x removed support for 32bit hosts. 32bit guests should still work perfectly under the latest versions.
