All the download links above seem to be dead now, but this one seems to work:

VirtualBox v 4.3.14 did not work on may Laptop, the virtual machines could not start, not even totally new ones. So I had to uninstall 4.3.14, and install 4.3.12 and are running in Software Rendering Mode, until next version is released.

I think the point was to run Guest Additions 4.3.14 from within VirtualBox 4.3.12. That worked for me.

The 4.3.14 guest additions linked above sadly does not work with VirtualBox 4.3.20 (Windows host). Any suggestions or workarounds?

Your problem is, that you joined an old thread. As you said yourself, 4.3.20 is the current version, and with every version of VB you should use the correspondent guest additions. They are included in every version of VB, simply open in the VM the devices-menu and choose the last option there.

How do you use the iso file? I tried to mount it with PowerISO, but it just says "The file format is invalid or unsupported".

1) The message indicates, that the file is corrupted.

2) Normally you would not have to download a guest-additions separately, it is included and ready for use in the VB-installation.

3) I wonder what you want to do with such an old file. the guest additions must match with the version of VB, and we are now at 4.3.26. You quoted a post, that is nearly 1 year old.
