Turn off user account control in windows, or right click on the installer and say run as administrator.

Definitely a good idea to always from FS-related setup files as admin. EDIT: Quick question just to make sure... You DID run FSX at least once before attempting to install the 744, correct?

First thanks for everyone that replied to my posting, yes i have run flight simulator X before i installed PMDG 747 400 X , also i remember last time i wanted to install the program, i had to completely reinstall windows again , install flight sim X and aceeleration, and beofr ei installed any other aircraft installed the PMDG 747 400 X and it worked, however considering i have already reinstalled do not wish to do this again. I ahve tried running|( as suggested by sheepu) as adminstrator, but since i left password blank on adiministrator pasoword it will not let me do this, and also i have tried to look for user accont control but cannot find this in xp, i also have installed Windows xp service pack 3 , whether this has any bearing on my difficulties i do not know. It is frustrating as i know that there is nothing wrong with the software as it has worked before. if anyone can be of further help please do thanksyou again

The reason you cannot find UAC (user account control) is because you are running XP. The next questions that I would have, is do you have an antivirus software. If so, can you disable it while you attempt to install.

Hi, When you reinstalled FSX did you follow these instructions? http://support.precisionmanuals.com/KB/a87/how-to-uninstall-and-reinstall-fsx.aspx Also does FSX run OK without the PMDG add-on installed? RegardsMark
