Download VirtualBox 7 (offline installers) with support for Windows 11

VirtualBox is a cross-platform hypervisor that you can use to run other operating systems. When Microsoft made the Windows 11 requirements mandatory, it became impossible to create a Windows 11 virtual machine (VM) in VirtualBox, as it did not have the necessary support for the operating system.

However, Oracle has finally released VirtualBox 7 with support for Windows 11, so you no longer have to struggle with hardware requirements.

Download VirtualBox 7 for different platforms using the direct download links given below.

closing words

Like Hyper-V and VMware, VirtualBox is a great hypervisor for testing your operating systems and other software. However, it had lost its popularity in the Windows world because it has been more than a year since Windows 11 was released, and now Oracle has released an update for its hypervisor with support for that operating system.

Anyway, for those who had their hands on VirtualBox, now is the time to return.
