  • Open a command prompt as Administrator : Right-click on “Accessories\Command Prompt” and choose : Run As Administrator.
  • CD C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox
  • Make sure the ExtensionPack is located in the same directory

@shaduabhi's suggestion didn't work for me; it just hung. I was experiencing the same error, and fixed it by copying the Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.1.4-74291.vbox-extpack file from the network share it was on to a local folder, then opening it.
