I've no experience with Virtual Box (perhaps others have) and I'm sure it's not a supported hypervisor. Could you not use VMWare Workstation?

Also, why would you not want to use v11? v11.3 was released yesterday and is greatly improved VE wise.

I have no experience with VMWare Workstation ut may head down that route if necessary.
As for what I am not going to move to v11, we are currently on 10.2.2 and don't have an pending plans to move to v11 yet so I wanted to have a like for like senario.

I suspect you'll have to, understood RE v10. I'm running v11 on VMW (trial version) and it works fine.

I've heard that 10.2.3 and 11.1.0 and later works well on modern versions of VMware Workstation, VMware Fusion, Hyper-V and Xen.
