I've looked around quite extensively and can't seem to figure out why this might be happening. On my 2008 R2 guest running the notepad++ installer gives me:
npp.5.8.5.Installer.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point pboard could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll
It's not just this software, cygwin's setup.exe just crashes on start with:
setup.exe has stopped working.
It's an APPCRASH with Exception code c0000005
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: Tried with a Windows 7 x64 guest and had the same problems.
The strangest thing is that in both cases the OS seems to run fine. Only things I try to install seem to be having problems.
Edit: Further Strangeness. I just installed VS2010 off a mounted ISO without issue. Is it possible that things are being corrupted by my network card at download time?
Edit: Trying to install google chrome seems to reinforce that packets are somehow getting munged in the virtual network adapter.
