That line in the Log indicates that you are not running the Installer "as administrator".(a right-click option).

Thanks for the answer but I run it as administrator and i've launched P3D several times.

Well, that message does indicate otherwise. 

Can YOU see and edit the DLL.XML file? 
Can YOU see and edit files in the P3D modules folder?

Being the Administrator isn't the same thing. Running "as administrator" gives more elevated privileges.

If you can access both the modules folder, and C:\Users\Arcbirds\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\
then you personally can allow full access by right clicking on the folder properties:  Security-->add Everyone as a user name, then check 'Full Control' access below.

Error 1332 is documented as meaning "No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.", whatever that really means.

So my next question would be: what does the Security tab in the modules folder properties show? Is "Everyone" included as a user name, and if so, when selected, are there ticks below against "Full control" and "Modify"? If not you will need to set it yourself (again) as already mentioned.

Something is wrong as Windows is evidently preventing access.

You can get FSUIPC itself loaded by editing or creating a DLL.XML file yourself, since you can write to the AppData folder. with just FSUIPC loaded there is should be:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>

<SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0">
  <Descr>Launch</Descr>
  <Filename>dll.xml</Filename>
  <Disabled>False</Disabled>
  <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad>
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>FSUIPC 5</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>F:\P3D\Modules\FSUIPC5.dll</Path>
   </Launch.Addon>
</SimBase.Document>


However, if FSUIPC cannot write to the Modules folder then it will not be able to save settings.

2. I've done it

Please see my revised reply above, crossed with yours.

If everything you say is true, and I believe you, your system is unique. I've not come across one where any installer cannot do its job, being completely prevented by Windows despite the user taking appearently adequate steps. something is wrong with the system somewhere. 

Try the manual install and see if that works.

Oh, researching some of last years reports of the ACL error, I found this

"As noted in another thread here, there's a bug introduced by a recent Win10 update, and that's in the "ACL" functions"

Now that was in November last year (are related to fSUIPC4 not FSUIPC5).  Are you using Win10 and is it perhaps out of date?

Yes, "Everyone" is a username and it does have "Full Control" and "Modify".

I've done it but FSUIPC still don't load with P3D

I use Win10 but I keep him up to date (v1803) and Windows Update keep telling me that Windows is up to date.

 

Sorry for my unique and annoying system... I just don't understand...

Did you change the path "E:\Prepar3D v4" to match your P3D location. I did find your path from the log you sent and edited my post, but it looks like you are reading my posts almost before I finish them!

Did I say "annoying"? And, yes, I don't understand either.

But if the Modules folder has write access, and the DLL.XML is put right, you should be good to go.

No no of course but I say it...

 

OK so now it's very strange. I have restarted my PC, done the install again and it seems that now FSUIPC load with P3D.

Good. Probably that's because you set the permssions okay, though there's still that ACL failure logged when the Installer tries to do it too (it will do, just in case, as it doesn't read them).

Or it was just another of those odd windows 10 quirks!  😉

The ACL failure will be problematic ? 

See if there are FSUIPC5.INI and FSUIPC5.LOG files in the Modules folder. if so then, no, it won't cause any further problems.

If you do find the LOG file you could show it here so i can verify the installation is now really good to go.

Looks good.  Do you have P3D going straight into flight mode, or displaying the selection menu first?

I ask because there's something going on between 120 seconds in and 298 (i.e. nearly 3 minutes). Was that in the Menu, or all loading time?

Nothing to worry about though. My system takes several minutes to load up too -- I have lots of added scenery layers!

Selection Menu. 

I think that was in the menu.
