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 :-)
