Recently I discovered my VirtualBox wasn't updating to the latest versions. It happens the Next check date is set to "307/11/2012" and that of course will never happened.

I remember I changed the regional settings and my date format is european dd/mm/yyyy.

One strange thing is changing the periodicity of the updates and noticing the date is always wrong.


  • 3 weeks: 314/11/2012
  • 1 month: 324/11/2012

This is really a bug with the software!

This works as designed as we didn't set the version update notifier yet, it is still set to 4.1.22. I admit the current behavior needs improvement (some users want to stay at the 4.1.x version, other users want to use the newest release).

After reading again I saw that my previous comment is completely unrelated to your problem, I'm sorry for that.

However, we are not able to reproduce your problem. It might happen only for certain dates.
