Run on MAC with Virtualbox

Getting The Plumbobber to run on a MAC is no easy task. Whether it is at all possible also depends on your system. Here is a small guide with no 100% guarantee that it will work for all MAC users.

What you need : MAC and at lest 20 GB. free space on it, VirtualBox(freeware), Windows 10 ISO file(diff. ways to get) and “The Plumbobber v.3.7.4.msi” file from my site.

Install VirtualBox using this GuideByPics or GuideByText

When you select disk space and it auto selected 50gb space, Just make it around 13 GB, if you don’t intend to use the virtual machine and windows for more than The Plumbobber. Yes, I wrote 20 GB, but it is because the Windows 10 boot ISO file is around 4-7 GB. I would recommend a Windows 10 Home education or a WM VirtualBox Windows 10 ISO. The Guides have links where to get the ISO file for free.

What about Windows key?

You just select that you have no key and make an offline user. After install it will not activate windows but run 30-90 day validation, after that you get a watermark on desktop and a few features will not work. Don’t mind that.

When windows is installed, you need to install Guest feature on the VirtualBox to get files from your macOS into windows.


  1. Open Virtual Box, run Windows 10, log into your account.
  2. From the Virtual Box Menu Bar (not Windows 10 menu) select DEVICES – Insert Guest Additions CD Image…
  3. Prompt appears – CD Drive D: VirtualBox Guest Additions, click on message.
  4. Select Next to run VBoxWindowsAdditions exe.
  5. Allow App to make changes.
  6. Start the Oracle VM VirtualBox Guest Additions wizard, select shared folder in Browse for Folder window.
  7. Select install.

After that you download “The Plumbobber v.3.7.4.msi” file into the shared folder and go to VirtualBox Windows 10 and run “The Plumbobber v.3.7.4.msi” and you should be Good To Go 😉
