Step 1 tends to change a bit between versions of VirtualBox. While the basic steps are pretty close, when the Windows UAC popups appear and some of the dialog boxes change a bit. Basically we’re going to download the software and walk through the wizards clicking next and then download the extension pack. Below is the latest install that I did.
Open Firefox and go to http://virtualbox.org.
Click the Downloads link.
Click the x86/amd64 link.
Click Save File.
Open Windows Explorer and navigate to your Downloads directory and double-click the file you just downloaded. Note that it’s OK if the version number is different.
Click Install. At this point I got a Windows UAC popup which I accepted. Depending on your settings you may or may not get one.
Check Always trust software from “Oracle Corporation”, and click Install.
Uncheck the Start Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.3.4 after installation and click Finish.
Back in your browser, click the All supported platforms link for the Extension Pack.
Accept the warning if it appears.
Scroll down to the bottom of the license agreement and click I Agree. I got a Windows UAC popup which I accepted.
You’re done with the Oracle VM VirtualBox installation.
