I downloaded and installed VirtualBox from an EXE file, but when I go to Change/Repair, it requires an MSI installer. Why is this?

As techie007 stated in your previous question:

The VirtualBox .EXE installer is a wrapper for an MSI

You can view one of the WiX files used to build the MSI in VirtualBox's source code repository. The EXE package you download installs the MSI behind the scenes.
