FSC error each time I run the program

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have used FSC off and on many times over the years without any problems, however, now, with a new install, I get a consistent problem.

When I first install the program and after running the database, I remove the unwanted icons from my desktop and only keep the FSX icon.

This is where my problem starts, each time I open the FSC program using the shortcut icon on my desktop it creates a whole new set of unwanted icons ????

When I use any other UNRELATED icon on my desktop to open other unrelated programs FSC starts to configure, and once again creates a whole new set of unwanted FSC icons

on my desktop and then opens FSC.

I don't understand what is going on, please, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Ron

Hi Volker,

A bit silly of me to leave out the important parts.

Here is the relevant info'

1. FSX service pack 2

2. FSUIPC 4.9

3. FSC 9.2.2

4. FSC website version

5. XP pro 32 bit

Regards

Ron

Hi Ron,

A few days ago I posted the following reply in the forum.

If an uninstall and reinstall the FlightSim Commander does not help...maybe...

...this indicates a problem with the Windows Installer.

I did not really have a solution for it but try to create a new user with administrator rights.

Then login as this new user and install again the FlightSim Commander.

If the problem persists, maybe a reinstall the OS is required.

I keep my fingers crossed,

Volker

OK Volker,

I have an idea that I may have already tried the administrator path and the OS install is a fresh install,

never mind I will soldier on and try again.

Thanks anyway

Hi Volker,

I think (hopefully) that I may have solved the problem, I was previously running the installer directly from the winzip file as a "compressed zip folder", and

now I have extracted the files from the winzip file directly to a new folder on my desktop and run the setup exe. as administrator from there.

That may be the answer.

Cheers

Hi Ron,

Thanks for the information and the solution of your problem.

It's true, the execution of a program as an administrator is not possible within the ZIP file.

Cheers,

Volker

I confirm that this 5 year old trick has just allowed me to install FSC10 on a XP PC with which I had problems with "Windows Installer".
Thanks a lot to "falconten"
