    I can't start the program on Windows 10 Technical Preview :(

    I don't believe that is a supported host OS yet, as it is not on the list of supported host systems at https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch01.html#hostossupport

    You might like to post this issue on the VirtualBox forum at https://forums.virtualbox.org/ especially in the section VirtualBox on Windows Hosts at https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewforum.php?f=6 That is the right place to draw attention to this topic.

    Installed 4.3.20 over 4.3.6 on Windows 7 Ultimate. As soon as a virtual machine is started, VBox goes 'Not responding'. Uninstalled, reverted to 4.3.12, which runs OK.

    Had to update from 4.3.6 as my CentOS 6.6 VM no longer worked due to Xorg 1.15.

    Have not tried a clean install of 3.4.20 yet, because of the time involved in testing.

    Anybody else seen this behavior from 3.4.20?

    Hi Javid,

    For pre-built developer VMs for VirtualBox, please take a look at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/community/developer-vm/index.html

    If you want to discuss best options for your purpose, please go to the VirtualBox forums at https://forums.virtualbox.org/

    Hi Jeff,

    yes, I need oracle on Linux 11 and I found this:


    from this website


    but it is a .rpm file and i don'nt know, how to create a Virtual Machine from it.

    It would be greate, if you knew a VMWPlayer or how to import it to a vM.

    Thanks a lot,

    Hi Javid,

    The RPM, and other downloads on the virtualbox.org download page depending on your host OS, is used to install VirtualBox. Then you launch it to create and run virtual machines using install media or pre-built VMs (linked above) for the OS you want to run in a VM.

    This page is for announcements, so please take Q&A to the VirtualBox forum using the link I provided above, and see the documentation at https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/End-user_documentation

    regards, Jeff

    I have WIndows7 32 bit as a host OS in C drive. and i have installed the Virtualbox in D drive and installed CentOS 6 in virtual box as a guest OS.

    After installing the Guest Additions in CentOS and set the Drg n Drop-Bidirectional. it permits to create shared folder in CentOS but i am not able to drag n drop to any file from host to guest and vice versa.

    also when i plug the pendrive it copy the partially data in guest OS then it show unpluggeed. it fully copy only .rpm file in guest OS (CentOS)

    please suggest how to copy the file from Host OS to guest OS and vice versa. and how to use share folder.
