Using several installers, I get errors related to missing .cab files:

The cabinet file 'product.cab' required for this installation is corrupt and cannot be used

and

The cabinet file 'disk1.cab' required for this installation is corrupt and cannot be used"

I've downloaded the latest VirtualBox, version 4.2.10, and whenever I try to install I get errors. I know the file isn't corrupt because I've downloaded it several times, and it has always failed. How can I fix this problem?

I solved this by rebooting the PC. I had the same problem. I think it has to do with some other program, so I rebooted and didn't start anything up until after doing the Visual Basic install. It worked perfectly.
