Installation Issues 737 800/900

Recommended Posts

hi all,migrated to a new machine the other day and have re-installed all my flight sim requirements apart from PMDG 737-800/900 boxed version (v 1.1)I load the disc up, hit set-up and the thing just sits there skipping C:WINDOWSfontslucon.ttf. when i check task manager the program is not responding. any ideas anyone? have read to boot and install in safe mode but this is a little far fetched. i have full admin rights on the machine.thanks,Chris

I think you can just reboot without the safe mode... this is very similar to something I ran into during a reinstall but it was more than several wake-ups ago so I'm don't exactly remember. Hope it works.

Chris,Ensure you are installing via an Adminstrator account. This issue occurs when the installer can't get write permision to the Windows fonts folder. In Vista this is as easy as right clicking the installer and hitting "Run as Administrator". In XP the account must be an admin one, not a limited user account.

That was the first thing I checked! Yep, I've got full admin rights.I'm just going to try a fresh install of fs2004 then give it another go...Chris
