FSX Installation Help

Sat Sep 03, 2011 4:49 pm

Hi all,

I'm trying to install FSX into my computer again but this keeps coming:

"Error 1304. Error writing to file C:Program FilesMicrosoft Flight Simulator XUiresMissionBB.xzp. Verify that you have access to that directory."

I've checked Uires on the FSX folder and there is no Mission BB. I'm quite a MSFS rookie, so any help would be appreciated.

Regards, Sveinn TH.

FSX runs much better on its own drive and folder. So, if possible, make a folder in the another drive (D, E, F, whatever - I'm going to assume you have more than just the C) called "Flight Simulator X" and do a custom install into that folder. The C: drive should be left alone to run Windows only...hope this helps a little.
