No X-Plane.exe after install

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Yesterday I bought X-Plane 10 and I started to install it. Today I finished the installation with the Download of Updated.

The Installation window showed me that I have sucessfully installed X-Plane 10, however as I pressed "Start X-Plane 10 now" nothing happened. So I closed the installer, went to my desktop, however there wasn't a folder named X-Plane 10. The only thing I was able to find is the installation log for X-Plane 10.

I can see all the data on my HDD, however I nor the windows search can find the X-Plane.exe

I don't know what went wrong, but I would be glad, if I don't have to install the whole thing again. So is there something I can do instead of installing X-Plane from scratch again?

 

OS: W7 HP (64Bit)

 

Thanks in advance,

 

John

Thats odd. Run the installer again and click "update X-plane" it will examine your installation and download what your missing.

That should take care of it.

If you are trying to install from the installer on the DVD, I would instead install fom this installer that can be downloaded from this link

Installing from the installer that is on the DVDs sometimes doesn't work well. Anyway that has been the case in the past. In fact the instructions on X-Plane.com site says do not install from the installer on the DVD.

Thanks for your answer guys!

 

I maybe (I don't think so, but it still could be) selected the Linux or Mac version instead of the Windows version for the installation.

I started to install a second copy, copied the three .exe files from the new copy to the full instalation and aborted the installation of the copy.

Then I ran the updater again, and it took care of some files which were missing (about 12 MB), and now it works how it should! :)

 

Thanks!
