Install Virtualbox 7 on Windows 11
Recently, Virtualbox 7 for Windows was released. When installing it, I noticed that the installer alerts of the absence of a Python library. Here I’ll demonstrate how to install Python, the ‘pywin32’ module and finally Virtualbox 7.
- Install Python 3
- Install ‘pywin32’
- Install Virtualbox 7
Install Python 3
Start by installing Python 3. You can download Python HERE, on the official website. Open the ‘EXE’ file, select all options including ‘ add Python.exe to PATH’, and follow instructions.
Install Win32API Module
Virtualbox 7 requires the Python 3 ‘pywin32’ module. Once Python its installed correctly, install this module with the following command:
pip install pywin32
Install Virtualbox 7
Now after installing ‘ pywin32’ module, download and install Virtualbox. After ‘pywin32’ it’s installed, Virtualbox installer will not alert of ‘pywin32’ absence as before, and you may work with it without problems.
