virtual machine qiime2 installation problem in window

Hi QIIME2 support.
I used official guideline to install qiime2 in virtual machine and I am getting an error which is pasted below.
Earlier I used unofficial videos to install qiime2 and I was getting same error.
At that time I posted the problem in qiime forum and qiime user oddant1 suggested me to try official guidelines and start a new thread if i have a similar problem.
There is no official guideline for window virtual machine installation and Only Mac virtual machine is described in qiime website.
I will really appreciate if someone please help me with clean installation.

Regards
Sudhir

Hi @Sky23,
Before I try to answer your question, I’d like to point out that this is not a support line, but rather a forum where many people volunteer their time helping community members. This is a minor distinction, but can be an important one to keep in mind.

As @Oddant1 said in response to your last post,

It looks as though you are trying to run a QIIME 2 command on a machine with only QIIME 1 installed. I suspect this is why it isn’t working.

QIIME (1) has not been supported for a couple of years now, and has been replaced by QIIME 2. Unless you have a specific need for QIIME 1, I strongly recommend you install QIIME 2. These VMs are used regularly by Windows users, and with the possible exception of UI differences, I believe the walkthrough is accurate. If you have specific questions about how the installation process doesn’t line up with your experience on a Windows machine, feel free to reply here.

Best,
Chris :cow2:

Hi ChrisKeefe,
Thank you for your reply.
I am aware of the fact that qiime is a community driven forum and not a support line.
I would like to install qiime2, not qiime1.
I used this link (http://qiime.org/home_static/dataFiles.html)
to download the image of qiime2, however it seems that it contains older qiime1 image (QIIME 1.9.1).
Let me try again with qiime2 image and see if installation is fine.
Can I use this link (https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/qiime2-data/distro/core/virtualbox-images.txt) for qiime2?

Thank you

@Sky23, look closely - the first link you shared is to the QIIME web site, not QIIME 2 - that is probably why you did not download an

The second URL you’re asking about

which I’m assuming you found in the installation walkthrough I shared above, provides the download links you need. If you haven’t reviewed that walkthrough, please do so before replying to this post. It gives comprehensive VirtualBox install instructions.

Good luck!
Chris
