I have been running a Debian (Wheezy) guest on a Window 7 host with Oracle VirtualBox. I was recently prompted to upgrade the VirtualBox and did so to version 4.3. Now I cannot get the guest additions upgraded. When I run through the install of guest additions I get the following error:

Installing the windows systems drivers... fail!!!
Could not find x.org or XFree86 Windows System

Hello, I am running command line interface debian. – geo derek Jan 13 '14 at 12:56
