Installer Frozen on Working

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I had PrecipitFX purchased for a while and decided to install it on my computer as I recently did a windows reinstall and the installer is stuck on the working phase and has used my other activation. I have ran as admin and I am using FSX which is installed to C:\FSX. Can you help?

I too confirm that by unticking the vortice box I can get it to say completed. What are we missing without the vortice?

I just purchased this today as well and I am having the same issue.  If I uncheck vortice it will install.  I tried to go back in and then to try to add vortice to the already installed packages the same thing.  I then uninstalled and then re-installed with just try vortice selected same thing.  End result, I can only install if vortice is unchecked.

 

something appears to be broken with this latest release -- 1.2.0.8

 

I look forward to the resolution.

 

Thanks,

 

Joe

Hi Everyone,

 

We found the flaw and released 1.2.0.11 that address this issue.

Please try a complete uninstall and then re-download from the website.

Let me know if any issues.

 

Thanks for your patience!

Hi Keven, I had the same problem with frozen on the working phase. I done as required with uninstall and re download but unfortunately it still is not working for me. I am running P3D 2.4 academic. A window opens saying PricipitFX Installer,s Task Complete, but the other window just hangs saying, working.

 

Any ideas

Can you both confirm that:

  • The installer hangs after clicking "ok" on the "Task Complete" popup and that the rain / snow textures aren't installed in P3D?
  • Other effects aren't installed on P3D
  • The effects are installed on FSX if you have it installed.

 

Thanks

Hi Keven, Thank you very much for your reply.

 

I do have FSX and P3D installed, I can confirm that your product does in fact work and I am more than pleased.

 

After a more in depth comparison between installed and then uninstalled all is well. My confusion came from the fact that when I installed a window came up saying it is working and almost instant another window came up to say Task Complete, but the first window was still saying working, when I clicked on task complete ok, both windows gone.

 

If you understand my explanation your a better man than me lol.

 

All well here many thanks for your time

What John S has said above is exactly what has happened to me. The program did work on the initial install but now I get the same as him. I hope this helps. I only have p3d on my computer
