Installation Trouble

Postby Sabretooth78 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 7:38 pm

I received notification from SimMarket that an update had been released, so as I usual do during the process of updating software, I uninstalled the old version. However, I ran into some problems with the new installer:

The "Flightscene_Tahiti_and_Society_Islands_installer.exe" runs properly and extracts files to D:\USERTEMP\Flightscene\ (my temp folder). Once complete, and with "Launch the Tahiti and Society Islands configuration tool" box checked, I click Finish. The configuration tool ran, allowing me to set the install path (which I changed to F:\Util\Flightscene; I have 3 hard drives, C for Windows, F for FSX and utilities, and D for backups and installers.). This then created all the folders in the proper location, but didn't copy any files.

I found that if I manually moved the contents of D:\USERTEMP\Flightscene\ to F:\Util\Flightscene, the installation finally progressed normally; after manually executing the configuration tool. Everything then appears to run normally, except that it doesn't create a shortcut for the configuration tool on the desktop, but that's simple enough to do manually.

Thanks for the report. The problem was that the installer was assuming your temp directory was on the c: drive. I will get it fixed.
