I was having a lot of trouble getting VirtualBox 4.1.2 installed on Windows 7 x64. It kept freezing at about 75%. Eventually, I’d have to kill the installation process, but VirtualBox would still show up in my Programs and Features as being installed. Here’s what I did to finally get it working.
1) I had various Citrix and Cisco VPN related products installed, so I uninstalled all of them. During one of these installs, I was prompted about a VirtualBox install being suspended, though I don’t know if that was relevant.
2) I went into Device Manager and deleted some extra network adapters I had lying around. The one that stuck out was one that was installed by OpenVPN a while back, even though OpenVPN is no longer installed.
Next time I tried the install, it went without a hitch!
