Update: SOLVED Can't download MS-provided virtual images. Direct link available? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to download the VirtualBox image listed on this page:

    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/virtual-machines

    Under the "Download a virtual machine" heading, there is a blue "VirtualBox" button. When I click on it, nothing happens. I have tried using Chrome on Linux, Chrome on Windows, and Edge on Windows, with ad block disabled, etc. Is a direct link available for the download?

    Thank you!

    P.S. I did try contacting MS through the chat support feature. The representative was unable to help me. He kept trying to install VirtualBox, which is different from downloading the Windows 10 development image for VirtualBox. He then asked if I wanted a Windows 10 ISO. When I told him no, our connection was interrupted, and I was unable to re-establish the session.

    Update: I found the direct download link in the page source. For anyone else interested:
