Error starting host: Error creating new host: Driver “virtualbox” not found.

I was receiving the following error when using minikube start

Starting local Kubernetes cluster...
E1106 07:39:29.894515    4616 start.go:92] Error starting host: Error creating new host: Driver "virtualbox" not found. Do you have the plugin binary accessible in your PATH?. Retrying.

================================================================================
An error has occurred. Would you like to opt in to sending anonymized crash
information to minikube to help prevent future errors?
To opt out of these messages, run the command:
        minikube config set WantReportErrorPrompt false
================================================================================

Turns out I had named the file minikube instead of minikube.exe

Thanks to https://github.com/kubernetes/minikube/issues/458 for the answer.
