Problems Installing Payware Add-Ons For FS9

Mon Jun 25, 2007 6:45 pm

As a birthday Present, I got some payware Adds , not for download, it's on 4 CDs.
One is Flight Deck 4, the others are FScene1-3.

There are some problems, and I don't know how to handle them.

Flight Deck has 2 Set-up Steps. First it installs the Aircraft. You can choose the installation path by yourself. No Prob, all aircrafts are installed.
Then it installs the Carrier, this is a completely automatic Set-up. You can do nothing. And I got this message, everytime I try again: Can't find FS9 on your Computer.. What the hell is this?

Same Problems with FScene, only one found FS9 and was installed..

So, is this malfunctional software, is there a Problem with the Computer, is there a Problem with me? HELP!

Sounds like you need to contact the publisher for trouble-shooting. I'm not familiar with Flight Deck 4 but FS Scene is a Just Flight product if I'm not mistaken and I have never had any such problem with any of their excellent products.

Typically installers look for the registry entry hkey_local_machine/Software/Microsoft/Micrososoft Games/Flight Simulator 9/exec_path . Sometimes they try to read the registry with a read/write open. So using a real administrator account instead of a user account can help...
