Ticket #213 (new defect)
Windows install rejected from virtual and SUBSTed drives

WindowsXP host, the VirtualBox_1.3.8_Win_x86.msi file as install. When the install file is located on virtual drive, created with the filedisk driver: http://www.acc.umu.se/~bosse/ OR is located on "drive letter" created with the SUBST command, then after getting all installation info, when the install process themself starts (a message "Installing InnoTek VirtualBox" is displayed), a exception window with title "InnoTek VirtualBox" and message:
"Error reading from file: [here the real path and name] Verify that the file exists and that you can access it"
opens and the installation must be aborted by "Cancel" ("Retry" does nothing). Installation from both CD-ROM and (via USB accessed) flash card works.
IMVHO may be acceptable, temporary inserting a warning about restriction of the installation source location in docs, as it is not critical, but may be surprizing.
Excuse my bad English!
