Strange problem with my PMDG MD-11 game

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I seem to have come across something rather odd...

So today I installed the PMDG MD-11 for FSX without any problems and the select airlines that I wanted too. They took a while but no problems...

I use a non-administrator account, but I used the administrator account to install the game onto the entire desktop. After going back to my account to play it, it crashed. A fatal error has occurred it said. I tried lots and lots more times after FSX restarted itself, but it continuously crashed when I selected the MD-11 and I clicked OK down at the bottom.

However, the game works perfectly in the administrator account. No crashes, no errors, no problems at all. I can just select the airline I want on the model and fly it. Everything works...

What's the difference between the administrator account and a user account in terms of my game?

Is there anything I can do to make it work in my account?

Do I need to give any more information?

You said it crashed after FSX restarted itself. Are you rebooting the computer before you try it again? Sometimes you have to do that to make sure everything is flushed from memory.

It seems that you are using Win7/8/Vista and have FSX installed in default Program Files directory, which has additional security restrictions. It's good idea to install FSX outside of this directory.
