Trying to install SharePoint 2013 in VirtualBox and for some reason the AppFabric installation is always skipped. All other prerequisites have been installed.

I referenced the following post: SharePoint 2013 AppFabric Installation Error 3 and used that same line of code in the command prompt. I also placed the AppFabric1.1-RTM-KB2671763-x64-ENU.exe file in the prerequisiteinstallerfiles folder. The Preparation Tool runs fine but when it completes it always says the AppFabric installation was skipped:

Can anyone explain why this is and how it can be corrected so I can install SharePoint? Windows Server 2012 as well as SQL Server 2012 are installed on a virtual machine in VirtualBox and i'm trying to install SharePoint 2013 on the same device for testing purposes as I'm new to Sharepoint.
