Forgot to mention it: my host operating system is Windows XP x64 edition and my CPU is Intel Pentium E6500

This is due to the dependencies on Microsoft Visual 2005 C++ Redistributable. The Vbox installer really should install this as a side-by-side assembly instead of dropping the dll´s in the $vbox_install_dir.

There are two workarounds: 1) install the Microsoft Visual 2005 C++ Redistributable prior to the VirtualBox Extension Pack installation, or 2) install the Extension Pack manually.

2) can be done as follows: open the Extension Pack download with e.g., 7-zip and extract the contents to:

$vbox_install_dir/ExtensionPacks/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack

Copy Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest, msvcp80.dll and msvcr80.dll from $install_dir to the win.amd64 folder of the extension pack install. That is, to:

$vbox_install_dir/ExtensionPacks/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack/win.amd64

I installed the Extension Pack manually and it worked.

The 1st workaround "stall the Microsoft Visual 2005 C++ Redistributable prior to the VirtualBox Extension Pack installation" didn't work
