Command line | Registry

PerformVirtualBoxInventory determines whether the FlexNet Inventory Agent attempts to detect and scan for a VirtualBox instance on the machine and then identify Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack. It does this by scanning the following locations (in order):

  1. (Windows) %ProgramFiles%\Oracle\VirtualBox
  2. (Linux) /opt/VirtualBox
  3. (Linux) /usr/lib/virtualbox
  4. (Solaris) /opt/VirtualBox/amd64
  5. (Solaris) /opt/VirtualBox/i386
  6. (MacOS) /Applications/
  7. (FreeBSD) /usr/local/lib/virtualbox
  8. (OS/2) C:/Apps/VirtualBox
  9. (All) %VBOX_APP_HOME%\
  10. (Windows) %VBOX_MSI_INSTALL_PATH%
  11. (Windows) %VBOX_INSTALL_PATH%
Tip: As usual, values shown between percent signs (such as %ProgramFiles% or %VBOX_APP_HOME%\) are system environment variables that can be set on the device where the FlexNet Inventory Agent is running.
The FlexNet Inventory Agent is searching for the VBoxManage executable, which is Oracle's own command-line interface for Oracle VM VirtualBox used to identify extension packs. When it finds VBManage.exe it runs the command VBManage.exe list extpacks to retrieve this list.
