The screenshot gives no information about failure reason. Could you please attach installation log (<CMD>+<L> when installer window indicates the error)?

Seems there is a problem with installing kernel extensions. Could you please attach /var/log/system.log? Btw, what OS X version do you use?

comment:5 Changed 3 years ago by guivho

Seems something was messed up in my maverick session. I logged out, logged back in and installation went flawless.

Sorry for the noise and thanks for your prompt and appreciated attention.

Which version of VirtualBox are you trying to install?

comment:9 Changed 16 months ago by galitsyn

I'd like to add that this is not the same issue. Since you have the following in installation log, I'd suggest you to check your system:

Feb 26 14:25:31 [hidden system name] installd[626]: ./postflight: Register file extensions for "username"
Feb 26 14:25:31 [hidden system name] installd[626]: ./postflight: sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
