I've tried googling this issue for awhile now and have been unable to find a solution. I, for a specific reason, need to install an older version of virtual box. However, every time I try I get this error: Also I looked at this answer VirtualBox 4.3.26 on OSX 10.10.2 Fails to install

Any and all help is appreciated!

This appears to be a known issue in VirtualBox including the new 5.1 release.

One of the users posts that it could be a problem with VM Fusion:

In my experience I get this exact error if I have VMware Fusion installed. If I remove VMware Fusion (using AppCleaner) then I am able to successfully install VirtualBox.

My suggestion is to either downgrade to El Capitan to use the VirtualBox that you need or to expand on your question as to why VirtualBox 4.3 is so critical - perhaps there is a workaround.

  • Thanks for the response. I need an older version of it to work with my current version of vagrant which I need to run some old servers :) Ideally I would update everything but I was trying to avoid that for now. – Ron Jan 21 '17 at 20:38
