Description

Host: Windows 8 Pro x64 system language:Chinese VirtualBox version: 4.2.4-81684-Win

Double click the install file VirtualBox-4.2.4-81684-Win.exe to install the software, but it prompt an error messagebox. The message below:

Installation failed! Error:系统找不到指定的路径。

And no VBox.log file create.

I find it is caused by my chinese user name. VirtualBox can't recognize my user folder:

"C:\Users\晴天"

Then I create a new user with the English name "qtxie280", and my user folder is:

"C:\Users\qtxie280"

This time VirtualBox can be installed.
