How to install the Virtualbox SDK

Download and extract the SDK package. The target directory will be sdk.

If we try to execute directly the installer we will get:

python sdk/installer/vboxapisetup.py install
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "sdk/installer/vboxapisetup.py", line 88, in <module>
    main(sys.argv)
  File "sdk/installer/vboxapisetup.py", line 61, in main
    raise Exception("No VBOX_INSTALL_PATH defined, exiting")
Exception: No VBOX_INSTALL_PATH defined, exiting

To install correctly we have to launch locally the install script.

cd sdk/installer
export VBOX_INSTALL_PATH=$(which virtualbox)
sudo -E python vboxapisetup.py install
