Registration not possible with new 7.07


Recommended Posts

Hi

I just downloaded the new 7.0.7 FSUIPC version and bought the key form simmarket. 
When I try to Register the software, it says that I should use the installation program.

But on the installer, the page with the registration ist missing. you can only select what to install and on wich folder, but you are not able to insert a registration. Did I miss something here?

Thank you very much.

Kind Regards

Registration comes at the end of the installation process, after you have installed. If you have previously registered, the registration form details will be filled-in and you can skip registration - you only need to do this once to generate the FSUIPC7.key file.

Hi John

Thanks for the quick reply. Thats the problem, there is no window, not during the installation, not at the end. The installer just closes. No matter if i run it as administrator or not, no matter where i Install FSUIPC to. The installation process runs through (FSUIPC can be opened afterwards) but the registration routine ist not called. What could that be? Do i have to delete old registrations first?

 

Thanks for your Help

No, thats still valid.

This is most probably due to a corrupt EXE.xml file and the installer is crashing. If you re-install again but deselect the auto-start component it should complete.

You can also delete your existing EXE.xml file before installing and a new one will be created. For further info, see

Dear John

Thank you for the tip. It worked:

I uninstalled FSUIPC with the uninstaller
then I manually deleted the folder with all files left in it.
I then went to my \Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache folder. (That's where the EXE.XML is now located).
After deleting the EXE.XML, i reinstalled FSUIPC7 as Administrator
It then worked and I could enter my Registration Data. All good now. Thank you very much.

Kind regards
