Virtualbox Installation Error: Event-id 1033 Status 1603

While trying to upgrade my nVritualbox from version 2.2.0-r45846 to version 2.2.2-r46594,  at one point the installation rolled back seemingly without throwing an error. The eventviewer contained this information (sorry, it’s Dutch) :

I quickly found ticket 1730 on the virtualbox website. This issue seemed fixed, but then reoccured in newer builds.
I first copied the MSI files from a temp dir to an installation folder. I followed the instructions given on the site and ran the installer with logging options: ‘msiexec /i VirtualBox-2.2.2-r46594-MultiArch_x86.msi /l*xv install.log’. I found the rollback command and right before that the reason for the rollback:
DIFXAPP: ERROR 0x2 encountered while opening persistent-info key for component ‘{B7D782D2-96DF-4775-A0E1-A76CF7B04B65}’
At first I thought it had to do with my disabled Host-Only NIC, but the install still failed with the same error after I enabled it.
Solving this, however was very simple. I ran a repair of the current installation. This required a reboot. After the reboot, the installation of the new version 2.2.2 went smoothly.
