I tried to install Oracle Virtual box for windows, But windows tells me It is not compatible with windows and didn't pass "Windows Logo Verification" or something , and because of that, it asks me to rollback the installation. I really need to install this software. Please help

Check the property sheet of the installer

VirtualBox-4.0.0-69151-Win

Is that what you have?

Thats odd.....Perhaps the download is corrupt/ may try to download it again.
Then clean out temp files
I installed that same version on 7 ultimate{32} a few weeks ago with out any problems.

I didn't click that, because it says it will crash the OS

Update...I recovered from an image which didnt have virtual box.
After doing all my testing I reinstalled my os from an image I made just for safety sake I had been testing different AV solutions and was intentionally throwing viruses at my machine
I have used 2 versions
Version 4 was from a few days ago
I used another version prior...few weeks ago

Hit this link and give 3.2 a try

Note...I do have version 4 on this machine and its working proper as per screen shot

The message you're seeing refers to the virtual network driver that VirtualBox needs to install. It's probably normal, and I highly doubt you're getting a message that your computer will crash. That's your interpretation of a standard warning message.

If you're really concerned, post the question in the VirtualBox forums.

Hi DoubleHelix,

You mean if I click on that continue button, no damage will happen? I got that same error message when I tried to install that software into my father's machine also. I tried 3 versions!

No one can guarantee nothing bad will ever happen. I've seen that error before and successfully moved past it. I'm sharing my experience and opinion. It's a normal, standard error message that indicates a driver is not digitally signed.

Hi DoubleHelix,

Got to know you are correct about that error message. Yes, as you said it is about the Virtual Network Card..Thanks for the help...

Thanks for aka Bert and DoubleHelix for the help....
