Ticket #13131 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 3 years ago

Last modified 13 months ago

Python SDK not installed on Windows -- vboxapisetup.py expects VBOX_INSTALL_PATH, not VBOX_MSI_INSTALL_PATH

Reported by: vekt Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: installer
Version: VirtualBox 4.3.12 Keywords:

Host type: Windows

Description

vboxapisetup.py expects the VBOX_INSTALL_PATH environment variable but the Windows installer creates VBOX_MSI_INSTALL_PATH.

vboxsetup.py could be updated to check both environment variables

vboxDest = os.environ.get('VBOX_INSTALL_PATH', None) # Non-Windows.
if vboxDest is None:
  vboxDest = os.environ.get('VBOX_MSI_INSTALL_PATH', None) # Windows.

or the Windows installer could create the VBOX_INSTALL_PATH environment variable.
