Description

Hello!

I got an update message when I started VirtualBox today, so I upgraded the VirtualBox. When the new verison launched, there was a message that the extension pack should also be upgraded, so I tried to do this.

Problems occured, when the extension pack had been downloaded and should launch the install step.

I got this error:

Failed to open the Extension Pack C:/Users/<username>/.VirtualBox/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.1.10.vbox-extpack.

RTFileOpen('C:/Users/<username>/.VirtualBox/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.1.10.vbox-extpack::SHA-256=e1ddcbb62de299b67350a4c9f3425b1f71aca490611891fd07e98f15a890d09f',,) failed with VERR_INVALID_NAME

Workaround:

Click the link in the window right before downloading should start and let the browser download the package instead. Then launch the extension pack and let it install as usual. Now the extension pack is installed correctly.

Can someone fix the extension pack, so the installation routine is workin?

Greetings,

Sören

Thanks for the report. I've replaced the Windows package. This is only relevant when installing the new extension pack using the automatic update function.
