Well it appears you failed to point the registry repairer to the correct place for FS9, because it set the parameter thus:

EXE Path="F:\Program Files"

which is evidently NOT where FS9.EXE is. It looks like you only pointed the repairer to the directory in which the FS directory was. Try again, or edit the Registry manually to correct the parameter "EXE Path" in the Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\9.0.

Show me, please. You provide nothing for me to see. If the path shown for "EXE Path" in the Install log is still showing wrong, then the Registry is still wrong. FSUIPC's Installer doesn't invent paths, it simply reads them from the Registry.

Not a good idea. But with FS9 it isn't a big job to fix it. You just need to get the Registry corrected. In all cases I've seen, the fixer program does that okay. However, if there was NO registry entry for EXE Path, then FSUIPC's Installer would ask you to point to FS9.EXE, and it would correct the Registry for you too. Your problem appears to be that you do have a Registry entry, and it is wrong.

Can you use the registry editor, Regedit? If so, please check the entry (I gave details before), and correct it manually.

Regards

Pete
