Repost from my old blog.
Installation failed! Error: System can not find the path specified.
This error is not old, and the solution presented here is not new, yet I would like to introduce you to it, so you do not have to search through thousand google pages to find the right solution.
This solution works on Win7.
- Open “cmd”
- Extract the installation file with the following command. (Be sure to adapt to your own path)
- File will be automatically extracted to the following location:
- “VirtualBox-4.1.8-r75467-MultiArch_amd64.msi” file is for 64-bit operating systems and the “VirtualBox-4.1.8-r75467-MultiArch_x86.msi” file for 32-bit operating systems. (Who would have thought it?)
- Now install the preferred file and you are done!
Have fun with virtual box!
In case of other VirtualBox versions, the instructions should be the same. (Not tested)
