Running this command:

$ curl -s | env IEVMS_VERSIONS="EDGE" bash

Gives me this error:

Checking that URL in the browser gives:

So I'm guessing the file has moved / been deleted?


Yes, it looks like it was moved. Update forthcoming.


^ I've wrote a PR, just needs testing to see if it works 👍


Killer, will push this out today.


Just testing it now


@xdissent It works except it doesn't seem to have guest additions installed


Was this fixed? I am still encountering this issue when I try to install Edge/Win 10.


issue still on.
you can reference the fork with the command:

curl -s | env IEVMS_VERSIONS="EDGE" bash

If you reference my fork it works it's just missing Guest Additions in the OS

@Jamesking56 I'm not familiar with what Guest Additions add to a VirtualBox VM. Does Edge still run fine in the VM (for testing purposes) without the additions?


The VM will still work without the Guest Additions, but you lose a few things, among those:

  • shared clipboard between host and guest
  • shared folders between host and guest
  • mouse pointer integration (don't need to manually force a release of the mouse from the guest VM)

Cannot install Edge #27


Thanks @karlhorky. I'll think about whether those limitations matter to me. Even if they do, I can probably put off my Edge testing for a bit.

fwiw, when using @paulovelho / @Jamesking56 forked curl, I get an error. Full log here.

Interpreting /Users/jfroom/.ievms/MSEdge - Win10.ova...

@jfroom what version of Virtualbox are you using?

jfroom commented Oct 7, 2015

@Jamesking56 An old one. I just upgraded to latest 4.3.30 r101610 (and installed the guest additions during upgrade). MSEdge/Win10 vm works fine now. 👍


Any updates on this? I'm on latest Virtualbox and still no Guest additions in the OS. However, Virtualbox's site says their version 5 guest additions supports Windows 10.

gvlekke commented Oct 30, 2015

same problem here


I'm also facing this issue. Any update on this?

cdata commented Nov 5, 2015

I also hit this.


OS: El Capitan
VB Version: 5.0.8 r103449

curl -s | env IEVMS_VERSIONS="EDGE" bash

results in this output error stating an MD5 failure as stated by other members:

MD5 check failed for (wanted c1011b491d49539975fb4c3eeff16dae, got e4444fd16c6bd80ca56175ca027eb447)
Failed to download to /Users/GrayGhost/.ievms/ (attempt 3 of 3)

NOTE: My .ievms folder is completely empty before making the install.


Had the problem when with the PR mentioned above which was

curl -s | env IEVMS_VERSIONS="EDGE" bash

I donated $5 towards getting this fixed.


Yeah, still hitting a 404 at — thanks for the patches, people.


The problem seems to be that MS is no longer making Mac-specific versions of the files. (To verify, look at the links used to download the "Mac" versions; they're the same as the links for the Windows versions). To fix, replace


The MD5 definition line also needs to be changed to: md5="2a591bd4e59c8fc1ca9818c31b99666b" ;;

Note: This creates the OVA (confusingly labeled IE11 - Win10.ova) but fails to import it into VirtualBox...I had to do that manually. Once imported, however, it seems to work flawlessly and already has the Guest Additions installed.


@streamtree Can these changes be made into a pull request?

Changing the URL and the MD5 sound like easy tasks, but the manual import - can this also be fixed in code?


@karlhorky Following up @streamtree 's comment you can rename the file that got extracted from the ZIP... rename from IE11 - Win10.ova to MSEdge - Win10.ova. Then run the script again and it should complete the import/set up for you. Working great here. I'm not sure what all would be involved in a PR for this, but hopefully this helps.

@cdata cdata added a commit to cdata/ievms that referenced this issue Dec 4, 2015
@cdata cdata Fix download location and SHA
Per helpful investigative work done here: xdissent#274 (comment)

Can @cdata's fork/work be merged in? Would be great to have this "just work" … well, almost (Microsoft's new slogan?).

cdata commented Dec 17, 2015

@mysterycommand I will make a PR, although I haven't checked to see if this script is still valid in the last few days ;)

niksy commented Dec 17, 2015

I suppose file rename is also necessary?

cdata commented Dec 17, 2015

@niksy Yes, I was going to add that in, but did not get around to it. I will try to do it later today.

Looks like the file has been moved again. Can we reopen this issue?

barillax commented Jan 6, 2016

Running into this issue today again. Same error as @xthilakx .


Me too, can't get EDGE.

xdissent commented Jan 9, 2016

Thanks @streamtree, downloading now to make sure there's no surprises then I'll update.


I got Edge working with two steps from above:


I don't care enough about Edge right now, so I can live without it, but if you folks got it working, please send a pull request.


Thanks @airblade. I got it running this weekend but the OVA name is a quirk I wasn't expecting. I've got to decide whether to rename it or change the import, then I'll push a release. Everything else about the windows version seems to be ok.


Same error here, cannot get EDGE


@xdissent any news on this?

benross commented Feb 4, 2016

Hey @xdissent and @airblade any update with this? Us n00bs that are looking for a one-line download of edge are still waiting for this as far as I know.


Hey everyone, Sorry I've been so busy (I've just moved house). I'm going to create another PR for this to see if I can fix it.


Interestingly enough, if you download the Edge VM from and extract it manually, it gives you a virtual machine called 'IE11 - Win10'... which is wrong.


See my PR for installing Edge ^

benross commented Feb 8, 2016

Thanks like a charm!


Awesome, thanks @Jamesking56.


+1 thanks @Jamesking56
