Installation fails on Win7x64 with temp folder on Y: drive

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

With the Windows temp folder set to Y: (in the environment variables), the installation of VirtualBox (tested on 4.1.6 and 4.1.8) fails with the error: "Installation failed! Error: The system cannot find the file specified." (4.1.8)

Changing the temp folder to for instance c:\temp lets the installation proceed without problem.

Running the installer as administrator does not help.

Tested and verified on Windows7 64-bit
