Virtualbox install silently aborts on Windows 2K SP4

Reported by: austin987 Owned by:
Component: installer Version: VirtualBox 2.2.4
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Windows


Using, the installer starts to run on 2K, popping up the 'Windows installer' window for a brief second, then silently aborting.

Looking at the MSI log file, it appears to be running the 64-bit msi, instead of a 32-bit one? MSI (c) (24:6C) [14:52:05:656]: * RunEngine:

* Product: C:\DOCUME~1\Admail\LOCALS~1\Temp\VirtualBox\VirtualBox-2.2.4-r47978-MultiArch_amd64.msi

... This installation package is not supported by this processor type. Contact your product vendor. C:\DOCUME~1\Admail\LOCALS~1\Temp\VirtualBox\VirtualBox-2.2.4-r47978-MultiArch_amd64.msi

Full log attached.

  • priority changed from critical to minor

Windows 2k is not a supported host platform. It should present a proper error though.

This error still persists on Windows 2000 hosts as of VBox 3.1.0.
