Installer cannot change or repair installation

After installing VirtualBox on Win7_X64, from control panel it is impossible to repair or change the installation because the installer cannot find the msi file. To be more specific the missing file was: C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Temp\VirtualBox\VirtualBox-4.3.16-r95972-MultiArch_amd64.msi. Also, there isn't any folder named VirtualBox under the ..\Temp folder. Search for the file was unsuccessful. You can only uninstall the entire package.

Windows doesn't keep installation package in the temporary folder like "C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Temp". You can try to search msi file inside folder"Windows/installer". Virtualbox installation package (msi) got a new name from OS but you can compare size and date, time (if you remember when you had installed the program).
