I'm having a little trouble understanding how to run Sage on Windows 7. I've installed Virtual Box and I've downloaded and extracted the Sage files for Windows, but how exactly do I now run these files? Sorry for asking this but the installation instructions seemed a bit vague.Thu, 07 Oct 2010 07:54:20 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7722/sage-installation-on-windows/Answer by kcrisman for <p>Hi,</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7722/sage-installation-on-windows/?answer=11715#post-id-11715Hmm, another case of the Virtual Box... which we haven't supported for a few releases, I think.
I recommend doing the VMWare version, because that is all that is available now, I think. Then read [this][1], which is hopefully pretty informative.
Follow up if this doesn't help!

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7722/sage-installation-on-windows/?comment=12055#post-id-12055I am curious: why the VirtualBox edition did not come up?Wed, 02 Feb 2011 03:36:10 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7722/sage-installation-on-windows/?comment=12055#post-id-12055Comment by kkumer for <p>Hmm, another case of the Virtual Box... which we haven't supported for a few releases, I think.</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7722/sage-installation-on-windows/?comment=22573#post-id-22573If VirtualBox is not supported for a last few releases, one should probably edit the windows install page on sagemath.org where VirtualBox and VMWare are presently treated as essentially equivalent options for a Windows user.Sat, 16 Oct 2010 18:35:32 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7722/sage-installation-on-windows/?comment=22573#post-id-22573Comment by Pranab for <p>Hmm, another case of the Virtual Box... which we haven't supported for a few releases, I think.</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7722/sage-installation-on-windows/?comment=22205#post-id-22205I wasted 2 days in figuring out (digging up to this answer); hope, the above suggestion is acted upon ASAP; nonetheless, I am not commenting on Sage, having not been able to find it out first hand.Wed, 02 Feb 2011 03:32:37 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7722/sage-installation-on-windows/?comment=22205#post-id-22205
