No Host-Only Network Adapter after upgrading from 4.2.0 to 4.2.2

There appears to be a flaw in the Windows installer script, probably custom actions.

Upgrading from 4.2.0 to 4.2.2 on a Windows 7 x64 SP1 host produces the following:

"--Error Renaming Connection-- Cannot rename this connection. A connection with the name you specified already exists. Specify a different name."

The msi logs indicate the installation was 'sucessful'. However in addition to the 'Proxy' issue already reported, the Host-only Networks section of VirtualBox Settings is completely blank.

VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter disappears not only from the VirtualBox Settings GUI, but from the host networking interfaces as well, leaving it in an error state (red 'X' in system-tray networking icon).
