The provider 'virtualbox' that was requested to back the machine 'default' is reporting that it isn't usable on this system. The reason is shown below:
Vagrant could not detect VirtualBox! Make sure VirtualBox is properly installed.
Vagrant uses the
VBoxManage binary that ships with VirtualBox, and requires
this to be available on the PATH. If VirtualBox is installed, please find the
VBoxManage binary and add it to the PATH environmental variable.
this showed up after i typed 'vagrant up' help me please.
I had virtualbox installed and running smoothly for 2 months but had the same error as Elijah. The issue is something to do with newer versions of VirtualBox not having the correct Windows Environment Variable to detect the installation path. Elijah, adding this Environment Variable resolved my issue and I was able to run vagrant up error free after following these steps;
Right click on "This PC" / "My Computer" on windows desktop Select "Properties" Go to "Advanced" tab Click "Environment Variables..." at the bottom Under System Variables click "New..." Set "Variable name" to "VBOX_INSTALL_PATH" Set "Variable value" to "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" Select "OK" and close all the other settings windows
Thanks William! Things are running smoothly now!
