I clicked on the Virtualbox application and it just showed the following message:


You can't use this version of the application "VirtualBox" with this version of macOS.
You have "Virtualbox" 5.0.10.

What should I do?

    Possibly, use a version of the application that is compatible with you OS version. – simlev Oct 3 '18 at 7:09
  • Possibly try the latest VirtualBox version 5.2.18 available here. What is your macOS version? – harrymc Oct 3 '18 at 8:46

You need to use version 5.2.14 or later. The Mojave kernel issue was fixed in 5.2.14. https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/17805

Current version is 5.2.18. Download here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
