World Of Ai Installer Problems

Recommended Posts

Hello,I am having problems using the WoAI installer. I suspect, but am not sure, that it may have something to do with Vista's quirkiness.After attempting to install various AI packages (AirTran, for example), I get the following error:Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.Index was outside the bounds of the array.I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the WoAI installer several times, as well as various AI packages, but no dice.Any ideas?Zach

I don't run Vista but understand you may need to turn off UAC (User Account Control) so you effectively have permission to install programs and make changes without Vista objecting.If that is the case you can find that option under Start -> Control Panel -> User AccountsGood luck.

I'm getting the same problems also. UAC has been off on my system as long as Vista has been installed. The installer just gets hung up for some reason. Just retry, it will work eventually.What really sucks is when you try to remove an airline and it fails. It removes all your aircraft associated with that airline along with the config files. Real pain in the a**!! Now I back up my aircraft folder every time!!!Devin

Don't know if this will help, but:When unzipped, all the installer files should be kept in the same folder and the installer run from that folder.It also appears to help if the AI Packages are also retained in a common folder (not the same folder where the installer is in)

Thanks for your help. I have turned off UAC, no dice. Also I have used a common folder, but no luck on that either.I'm out of town right now, but when I get back to my desktop I'll post a screen.Any Vista users running WoAI?

Yes, I am running Vista (Home Premium) and the great packages provided by WoAI. I experience no problems. But I don't have any idea on this matter. I'll leave it up to Tom, since he is 'one of the guys' from WoAI.

Make sure the zip file package is not 0kb in size, otherwise it will crash the installer.

Yep...that looks familiar! :)I'll post any more errors I get also once I have another one. My installer is in its own folder while all my WoAI packages are in another folder. My FS9 is on another drive (D:\), but that shouldn't make a difference.Will keep you posted.Devin

Which package are you trying to install ?Usually this error comes up if there's a corrupt download of the installer software running.Remove the installer completly from your setup and download the installer zip again.Then unzip it, download a package and install it.If the error pops up again post here and I will have a look.Tom vd HorstWorld-of-AI

It doesn't matter what package I'm installing...it fails randomly. It's not that it doesn't work, it just fails randomly on any package. Once I restart the installer, I usually can install the package it failed on. On the second try, it informs that the package is already installed, would I like to repair the istallation. I click yes, and 99% of the time everything is hokiee dokiee.It's hard to pinpoint why it fails. I have 5 or 6 installations to do...I'll try to get to them this afternoon and see if it fails again.Thanks Tom for showing an interest in this. The WoAI packages are second to none!!Devin

Hi All,I finally bit the bullet and just reinstalled FS2004 itself. For whatever reason, all of the WoAI packages have worked now. I'm really not sure what the problem was, but I'm quite happy it was resolved!

Cool! I was going to suggest something but looks like you fixed it. I had the same error with my AI packages... It seemed that once I unzipped the file, another zip file appeared with a readme notepad file.. Selecting that zipped unzipped file to install made everything work... I dunno, it could be random luck on my end I guess, but glad you got it fixed :-)

This is just using the automatic install. The package was brand new and never installed ever on this machine. There was never anything to remove from a previous installation.

Was this a FSX or FS9 install ?Can you show me a pic of your ATR folders within the sim ?If you redownload the package does it happen again ( wanna rule out a corrupted download here)

I had the same problem and I found the answer in the WOAI forum. I am running XP 64 bit and the automatic installer did not find the correct folder for either the FS9 or FSX. Use the manual install and type in the location of the directories and them it worked fine in both the FS9 and FSX. Without the manual install it attempted to install to the "C" root directory.I hope this helps with your problem. Let me remind you I am running XP 64 not Vista.Dick from SUNNY Florida.

It is a FS9 install. I'm sorry, but what is the ATR directory? I'm unfamiliar with that acronym!! ;)It's not that the package is corrupt, the installer just quits. I restart the installer, and re-try installing the package and it works fine the second try. It happens just after you see the information about the package, a temporary directory is created in the installer folder in the background, then I click "INSTALL" and, BAM!, the installer fails. No problem, I just restart the installer, reselect the package and go through the steps. The only difference in the second try is that it asks if I want to reinstall the said package. I say yes, and all is fine.Devin

That's really weird.The ATR directory is the directory's where the atr's are installed so -> FS9/Aircraft/WoA_PAI_ATR42 and WoA_PAI_ATR72.So each time you start the installer the installation fails. Understans I that pat correctly ?And each time you retry it by restarting the installer it works ?

Ah, I get it! I didn't think of aircraft...here are the shots:
So each time you start the installer the installation fails. Understans I that pat correctly ?And each time you retry it by restarting the installer it works ?
Not every time...sometimes I can go through 5+ installs with no problem...other times, it fails the first time. There is no rhyme or reason on how or why it fails. It fails on large packages. It fails on small packages. It doesn't seem to have any connection that I can see. Each time it fails, all I do is restart the installer and reinstall the package and everything is fine. I've never worried about it...just dealt with it cause it still works in the long run.

Only just quickly scanned this post as I was having the same problem. Not sure if this is a cure for you but it seemed to work on my Vista 64 system. When running the WOAI installer right click on the .exe and click "run as administrator" and all seems to fine. I have only tried this on two packages but neither would work before and the installer was coming up with the same error message as described on this post. Hope this helps, apologies if not!

I've asked the developer of the installer to look at the problem as well.I'll be out of town for the upcoming 2 weeks and we'd like to figure out what's happening here since it should be working normally.Please report errors when they arise so we can look at the specifics.
