Installer hangs on Virtual Box


I had Local installed and everything was great up until a few days ago. After updating from the auto-updater, local refused to start the server.

With my hammer in hand, I decided to gently fix the issue by uninstalling Local with a 3rd party tool called AppCleaner.

Now when I try to reinstall, it seems to get stuck on the VirtualBox part. ugh!

It should be noted I tried using a version of local supplied by Clay from another thread that seemed like a similar issue:

This didn’t seem to help, let alone the version I downloaded directly from

I’m running High Sierra and yes, I rebooted the machine.

plz help!
