Maybe you have a defective CDROM? I'm very little help with the boxed version of this product, but I have not seen an installer exe runtime error message more than just once or twice in the forum over the past couple years and those were download versions, which were resolved by re-downloading.I assume the error happens early in the installation, before any dialogs from the installer happen.Please sign your full name here. Thanks.

No i use a official version of windows xp professional with service pack 1, 2 and 3 installed, Microsoft Flight Simulator X with Acceleration installed, when i cliicked on further infomation on the technical tab it stated something about comapp.txt. Anyway i did a have took drastic action and have done a complete re-install of windows, and i can report that i have successfully installed the PMDG 747 400X, i shouldn't have hd to have done that but considering i tried installing it on my laptop and it ran the setup.exe file, i could only deduce that there was something wrong with my windows installation, just wish i knew what caused it, i do not like puzzles!. But i would like to extend my thanks to those of you that came up with suggestions, since i have only just joined this forum, it is greatly appreicated THANKYOU
