Description

During installation a dialog box appears warning that:

"The software you are installing has not passed the Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP. (Tell me why this is important)

Continuing your installation of this software may impair or destabilize the correct operation of your system either immediately or in the future. Microsoft strongly recommends that you stop this installation now and contact the software vendor for software that has passed Windows Logo testing"

Some users may take Microsoft's strong advice and not install VirtualBox.

We are aware of this problem and will fix it properly for later releases. The process of signing the drivers is very complex, therefore the drivers of the next major release will most probably still raise this warning. But no need to check every new version, we do this ourself :) But thank you anyway.

Replying to frank:

"We are aware of this problem and will fix it properly for later releases."

Two years to the day later, this is still happening with 3.2.8. I'm seeing it with the generic installation errors, and with specific drivers like "VirtualBox Bridged Networking Driver Miniport".

I'm trying this software for the first time, and getting the loud dinging noise and alert popups 8 times already just in the install process, does not give me much in the way of confidence that the installer isn't breaking all kinds of things.

Ok so I went and did the entire install of virtualbox, noting the messages above that the Software Installation not passed Windows Logo testing, multiple times. THen low and behold I get the BSOD.....

Don't know why I am not a happy camper I was warned and chose to ignore the warnings....
