Download[edit]

The VirtualBox installer can be downloaded from the official VirtualBox website. You might want to compare the checksums to verify the integrity of downloaded packages. The SHA256 checksums should be favored as the MD5 algorithm must be treated as insecure!

Installation[edit]

Run the downloaded installer and follow the on-screen instruction to install Oracle VM VirtualBox. You can opt to add a desktop and start menu shortcut.

NOTE: Your network connections (including the Internet connection) will be interrupted for a short time while the installer installs VirtualBox network drivers.
