I am having a very similar error on an Linux machine running Windows 8.1 as the guest:

Re: Fail install Guest Additions 6.1.28

Same error here as well.

Running openSUSE Leap 15.3 as host. Update from 6.1.26 to 6.1.28 happened today automatically via the openSUSE updater.

I have several guests (Win XP, Win 8.1, Win 7) and installation fails for the same reasons on all of them.

All abort with Execution returned exit code: 2

In Windows XP it gives me (1) RETURN: DriverPackageInstallW (0xE0000304)

In Windows 8.1 it gives me (1) RETURN: DriverPackageInstallW (0xE0000244)

In Windows 7 it gives me Error (800b0100): No signature (Vboxmouse.inf)


How to solve this?

I am having the same problem with Windows 8 64-bit. I tried the fix in Ticket #20628 and was able to download and install the suggested certificate but got the same error. I can install version 6.1.26 with no problem, so presumably the problem lies with the certificate. Any thoughts?

The same here. Any workaround ?

EDIT:
I downloaded the drivers here : https://download.virtualbox.org/virtual ... 6.1.26.iso

Did you really mean 6.1.26? Those are the previous drivers supposed to be installed OK and active. The topic is the 6.1.28 drivers problem.

Tried your hint. Installed the certificate in a Linux hosted Windows 8.1 (Guest Additions 6.1.26) guest OK. No message. 955 Bytes, "Dec 6 2017" "DigiCertAssuredIDRootCA.crt".
sha256 sum = 3e9099b5015e8f486c00bcea9d111ee721faba355a89bcf1df69561e3dc6325c DigiCertAssuredIDRootCA.crt

However, even after a shutdown/start, the Windows 8.1 image gave me the same error when trying to install the Guest Additions 6.1.28:

...

There is already an open ticket for this problem (https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/20628). Perhaps this has not been actioned because the person who posted it managed to get the installation to work, with the result that the developers might have though it has been resolved, which it has not.

Agreed, I am seeing the exact same problem on a Windows XP guest (I know, I know...) and Arch Linux host. After upgrading to 6.1.28, extensions installed fine, but I get the same errors as OP posted above when installing guest additions.

I also tried adding the SSL cert as detailed in the other ticket but still get the same error. Install_drivers.log ends with:

(1) 0 - ENTER: DriverPackageInstallW
(3) 2148081673 - Failed to calculate strong name from 'C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox Guest Additions\VBoxGuest.cat'. Check if catalog is valid and if file is in the same directory as the INF.
(1) 0 - Successfully removed '{7d2c708d-c202-40ab-b3e8-de21da1dc629}' from reference list of driver store entry ''
(1) 0 - RETURN: DriverPackageInstallW (0xE0000304)

Thanks,

You have to disable Driver signature imposition.

1 - Hold Shift key when clicking Restart on Windows menu
2 - Select Solving Problems
3 - Advanced reboot
4 - Option 7 to disable driver signature imposition
5 - Wait for system to boot and then execute Guest additions install
6 - Accept drivers not signed when prompted

I've translated from my options in Portuguese, so the options may not translate like that.
