Cannot install FSUIPC4 into FSX:SE...


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Please see the Install Log below.

 

I'm trying to install FSUIPC4 into FSX:SE on a Windows 7 x64 machine. FSX:SE is all that is installed and all that has ever been installed. No previuos FSX, or Prepar3d etc.

 

I don't understand what is happening. Please can you help.

 

 

Thank You

 

Ian

The FSX-SE install hasn't worked correctly. There should be registry entries identifying it's installation correctly.

 

Try running the repair option in the Steam application. If that doesn't work you could try using one of the Registry fixing programs for FSX, for instance the one at:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Registry-Tweak/FSX-Registry-Utility.shtml.

I think it should work for FSX-SE installed alone as it will look like FSX in any case.

 

Failing any of that I can only suggest you visit DoveTail's support.

 

BTW, as a way of explanation why the Install couldn't recover: The idea of the prompt for you to find the EXE depends on first actually identifying that there should actually be a supported sim installed. When it occurred for you, as a last desperate attempt, it was in the final (Prepar3D install) part of the sequence, which won't work even though you identified an FSX.EXE not a Prepar3D.EXE (many folks use a migration tool which can rename things like this, so the name can't always be trusted).

 

This is the first time I've seen any example of any version of FS installed with no install path placed in the Registry. Having seen it happen, I will look at ways of making the Installer cope. When you identified the EXE it could read the version details and decide which sim it was then. I'll look at doing this, but, alas for you, I am away from this evening until 22nd July. I've made a note to do this, though, too late to help you I suspect.

A question. Maybe there's a faster way for me to make the Installer work, but I need more information please.

 

In Windows START edit fieeld, type Regedit and press Return. This will ruun the Registry Editor.

 

Find the entry

 

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Wow6432Node

 

(or just  Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE if you aren't using a 64-bit version of Windows)

 

and see if there's an entry "DovetailGames".  If so, see if it contains 'FSX' and open that entry. On the right, is there an "Install_Path" entry with the correct path?

 

If you could check quickly I might be able to make a revised installer tonight for you to use, before I disappear for two weeks.

Hi Pete,

 

Thank you for the fast reply.

The problem was totally my fault. I'm sorry I've caused you extra work.

I hadn't yet actually RUN the sim after installing it. So many of the files and values it creates didn't exist yet. It is now installed and registered with no problems.

 

Sorry again and thank you for your help.

 

Ian
