Downloading VirtualBox

To comply with U.S. export regulations, VirtualBox downloads have temporarily been moved to the Sun Download Center. We are currently working on a more permanent solution that will simplify downloads for various distributions and re-enable old versions as well.

Note: Don't worry that the Sun website still reports version 1.6.0. Select the package and you will be forwarded to the 1.6.2 package.

See the changelog for what has changed.

User manual

The VirtualBox User Manual is included in the VirtualBox binaries above. If, however, you would like to take a look at it without having to install the whole thing, you can download it in PDF format here:

You will need a PDF reader such as  Adobe Reader to view this file. Most Linux systems will have a PDF reader installed by default.

VirtualBox Open Source Edition (OSE)

For a detailed explanation about the differences between VirtualBox and VirtualBox OSE, please take a look at the Editions page. The VirtualBox OSE sources are available free of charge under the terms and conditions of the GNU General Public License, Version 2. By downloading from the below links, you agree to these terms and conditions.

  • Checking out from our Subversion server.
    svn co vbox
    After checking out, you should have a look at the build instructions.

Please note that the Open Source Edition does not include an installer or setup utilities, as it is mainly aimed at developers and Linux distributors. We do request that anyone intending to redistribute the Open Source Edition contact us first. Please also take a look at our licensing FAQ, in particular regarding the use of the name VirtualBox.
