Update: Up and running on my Windows 7 PC at work. Will have to wait until tonight to do it on the Mac and Linux boxes at home… :)

Update 2: Running fine on Mac too. :)

VirtualBox 4.3.28

 

virtualboxI know you’ve all been thinking, “It’s about time there was a new release of VirtualBox so I can reinstall the guest additions on all my VMs!” If so, it’s your lucky day!

VirtualBox 4.3.28 was released yesterday. The changelog and downloads are in the usual places.

Version 5.0 is on Beta 3, so it probably won’t be long before you can get your upgrading fix again… :)

Cheers

VirtualBox 4.3.26

 

VirtualBox 4.3.26 has been released. Downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

It’s only a couple of weeks since the last release, so I guess there was something causing people significant headaches, which warranted a new release. Not that I noticed any problems. :)

Happy upgrading!

Cheers

VirtualBox 4.3.24

 

VirtualBox 4.3.24 has been released. Downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

Regarding the upgrades:

  • Fedora 21 : No problems.
  • Mac OS X Yosemite : No problems.
  • Windows 7 : I had to use the task manager to kill the “VBoxNetDHCP.exe” and “VBoxSVC.exe” processes from the current installation before the upgrade could continue. Once those were killed, it installed and worked fine.

Happy upgrading!

Cheers

VirtualBox 4.3.16

 

virtualboxVirtualBox 4.3.16 has arrived. The downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

Although 4.3.14 worked fine on OS X and Linux, I skipped it on Windows because it just wouldn’t start a VM. That issue is allegedly fixed in this release. The changelog includes the following entry.

Windows hosts: fixed startup problems on certain Windows hosts due to conflicts with anti-virus software (4.3.14 regression, bug #13187)”

Happy days! :)

Cheers

Update: It is working fine on Windows 7 at work…

VirtualBox 4.3.14

 

Oracle have given birth to VirtualBox 4.3.14. Mother and baby are doing well, with the downloads and changelog in the usual places.

Happy upgrading…

Cheers

PS. Looks like the baby might be still-born. Fails pretty badly on Windows 7 at the moment…

PPS. Seems to work fine on Mac and Linux (Fedora 20)…
