VirtualBox install error 1625

August 25, 2010

Installation of VirtualBox version 3.2.8 was resulting in an error “Installation Failed: ERROR 1625”

The problem was I was logged in as a user with insufficient privileges to create device drivers.

Performing the installation with an account with local administrator privileges solved the problem.  Might be a less heavy handed way to accomplish this – but I wanted to publish how I got around the problem.
