Virtualbox offers an easy way to set up virtual machines on your computer.

You can also install software directly inside the virtual machine itself, but this has some limitations. This guide will walk through doing a remote installation with Virtualbox step by step.

How to install software on virtualbox

Software installation is a common task that many of us perform on a regular basis. Whether it’s updating your operating system, installing new applications, or even just downloading a game to play, these tasks are simple and straightforward. But what happens when you want to install something on your computer but you don’t have the proper installation disc?

VirtualBox is a free virtualization software that allows you to run multiple operating systems on one machine at the same time. Using this tool, you can install software by loading its ISO file into VirtualBox and then running it from there. We’ll show you how!

Installing software on a virtual machine is easy. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Download the software you want to install
  2. Open VirtualBox and click on “File” > “Import Appliance”
  3. Select the file that you downloaded in step 1 and click “Open”
  4. Click “Next”, then accept the license agreement (if there is one) and click “Next” again
  5. Choose whether or not you want to import any data from the virtual appliance and click “Import”

It is really pretty simple if you don’t lose you cool. Just tell us what program you want to install and where the installation media is.

Just like a physical machine, you install a program by running its install program in the vm. If it is on CD you put the CD in the host machine’s CD drive and tell the vm to use the host drive. If it is an ISO file you can assign the ISO directly to the optical drive of the vm. So far just like installing the OS.

If it is on USB or is a file on the host machine, the simplest method is to use Windows file sharing (not VirtualBox shared folders) to copy the installer to the vm, then run it.
