Ticket #2672 (closed defect: fixed)
The installation fail outside of the temporary directory on Windows

The *.msi file cannot install VirtualBox properly when the user launchs it from any of his directorys (it says "can’t read the MSI file", I can't find the old ticket about this problem). The workaround to this problem is to copy it in the temporary directory of Windows and then to launch it from here, it’s not very convenient.
I think you can make an *.exe which copy the MSI file in "%TEMP%" and run it. You can even add your logo to it. :)
This problem appeared to me on Vista SP1 x64 with the 64bit version of VirtualBox 2.0.6 and 2.0.4.
