Fatal errors during Virtualbox installation

Postby jtwillia01 » 19. Aug 2019, 17:32

Hi everyone,

I am trying to install Virtualbox on my machine running Windows 10 v.1809 build 17763.557. I always run it as an administrator (right-click) but the installer starts rolling back at ~98% completion and I get a fatal error message afterwards.

I searched the forum but couldn't find out how to fix it.

I have attached an MSI log from the last installation attempt here.

Appreciate your help in advance. Let me know if I can provide any more helpful info.

The log says the install went south trying to install a USB driver:
DIFXAPP: ERROR: encountered while installing driver package 'C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\drivers\USB\device\VBoxUSB.inf'
DIFXAPP: ERROR: InstallDriverPackages failed with error 0x54F

A google on "InstallDriverPackages failed with error 0x54F" did not return results relevant to that error number.

Googling "install error VBoxUSB.inf site:forums.virtualbox.org" leads to several interesting possibilities. Following the posts after this one: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=93367#p450791 may give an option.
