Installation error 2803 when installing vbox on win XP x86

Description

Already have vbox 1.6.4 installed (using all defaults during installation).

Vbox (1.6.4) was currently running when attemping this install of 2.0.0 (no msg box about closing running vbox was given).

Installer reported error "2803" and I had to close it.

Closed running vbox, and re-ran setup. Installed OK.

Probably you guys should use a mutex to detect if the app is running, see e.g. for Inno Setup  http://www.innosetup.com/iskb.php?mutexsessions

Cheers

Thanks for the report. We currently don't have a detection for a running VirtualBox installation yet. If there's time I'll implement a solution, since it's not one of the top priorities right now.
