Error while installing virtualbox 1.6.4 on Windows XP SP3 host

Host type: Windows


I can't install virtualbox on my Windows XP SP3 host. After "copying new files", the installer starts "rolling back action" and then I get a message saying that setup ended prematurely because of an error. This every time I try installing. I have tried disabling my firewall and antivirus, as well as installing using the "Administrator" administrator account but it won't work. Note, however, that I have tried reproducing this on another computer of mine but the installation goes through as it should.

There was another person (ticket #1730) who encountered errors during installation on Windows Vista, but his case the installer was producing a different error.

My error occurs while installing the driver package VBoxDrv.inf; InstallDriverPackages() returns with error code 82 (0x52). To be more precise, it fails in DriverPackageInstallW with the following error:

DIFXAPP: ERROR: Create Driver Store entry failed. (Error code 0x6E: The
system cannot open the device or file specified.)

I am including the entire log file for debugging purposes.
