Command line installation of Extension Pack asks for Licence Agreement Confirmation

Reported by: ladiko Owned by:

It usually worked to install the VirtualBox Extension Pack via command line, but since 5.1.20 it asks to confirm the licence agreement by pressing y/n - this seems contra productive to me as command line use is to avoid manual steps.

"C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe" extpack install --replace "C:\Path\to\Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-5.1.20-114628.vbox-extpack"

Is there any way to supress that?

Just execute the command and read the messages written by VBoxManage. There is an --accept-license parameter.

Well, I have the same problem, and can not find any --accept-license parameter. Of course I tried inserting it anywhere in the VBoxManage command, but to no avail.

So maybe something has changed?

Of course, I found how to fix this issue after updating it, as usual :-(

The command line would be something like this:

"C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe" extpack install --replace "C:\Path\to\Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-5.1.20-114628.vbox-extpack" --accept-license=715c7246dc0f779ceab39446812362b2f9bf64a55ed5d3a905f053cfab36da9e

You only get to see this output when you have accepted the license, and not when running VBoxManage --help, which was what I did.

So somebody can close this again, sorry.
