Error during installation of guest additions 4.1.2

Postby PerN » 18. Aug 2011, 09:44

I got a problem installing guest additions for my Win XP SP3 guest. I tried installing both in "safe mode" and normally without success, see below for installation log. Anyone that experienced similar behaviour that could point me in a direction? Thanks!!

Host is Ubuntu 11.04
Guest is Win XP SP3
Virtual Box is 4.1.2

Try to uninstall the Additions, remove the INF cache (%windir%\inf\INFCACHE.1), reboot the guest and then re-install the Guest Additions.

Thanks for your reply!

Just tried your suggestion, but unfortunately, the problem persist. Identical behaviour.

I also downloaded a new iso-copy from "http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/4.1.2/VBoxGuestAdditions_4.1.2.iso" and tried to install by manually mounting this iso, with identical result.

I also have a problem with installation of Guest Addons 4.1.2. Mine seems to be worse though.

I am running a Windows 7 guest on Ubuntu 11.04 and it ran fine until I tried to install the WDDM Direct3D video driver. It would not install, requiring a reboot to abort the installation. After reboot the guest would not start. The only way I can start up the Win 7 guest is via safe mode without networking. The last entry in the log is: "Installing guest driver..."

I attempted to reinstall guest addons, but the installation halts at about the half way mark. I attempted to uninstall the addons, but the uninstall halts at about 1/8th mark.

The guest is thus pretty much toast unless someone can help me repair the Guest Addons issue, or can give me advice on what else I can try to reverse the situation.

I managed to remove them by entering the shutdown screen. That made the "cancel" button clickable. I then allowed the machine reboot, which it did, but it of course had no mouse support so I had to attempt installation of guest addons, and now the guest hangs at boot screen (the slowly combusting windows image). Is there an alternative to 4.1.2 guest addons that I can try since this does not look like it will work out for me? I never had this problem before. Until now, the Virtualbox guest was more reliable than the native Win 7 on another partition.

An update to my previous non-successful attempt to install guest additions (see above).

I tried downloading the 4.1.2.iso directly into the Win XP, mounting it with WinRAR and then running the installation, however still identical result.

Any help appreciated!

...and now after possibly 5 cycles of Windows 7 system restores and reinstallations of guest addons, they decided to work.

Again, first time this happened, no idea why it happened, and I have no idea why it all of a sudden worked.

Solution: try and try again.

I hope 4.1.3 does not cause similar issues.
