Sounds like a read error. Clean disc? DVD reader going bad?

Thanks for the reply. Other games lode fine.

I think it's an Installshield problem. For some reason I can't seem to paste a link here but if you Google KB910816 you can find a possible fix. I had the same problem back when and that took care of it. Anyway, can't hurt to try it. Luck...

You are right Doug I think it is a installshield problem. Have not yet decided on how to fix this.

Have tried so many things as per internet fix's and nothing has worked with this Installshield 1628 error. I start the first install disc for fsx and the installshield starts then soon after that is when I get this 1628 installshield error?  I googled KB910816 and it wont's you to purchase Smart PC Fixer that is suppose to fix this problem. Short of purchasing PC Fixer, as I have stated, all self fixes that I have tried has not worked. Any help on this issue is appreciated. Should I try the Fixer?

Do not need to purchase Smart PC Fixer.  That's just another name of a commercial product that does things like in CCleaner.  So, did you try the fixes on the Microsoft link - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/910816 ?  They do have a fixer whereby they rename the installshield folder for you and you can try to reinstall.

Like Jim hinted, try CCleaner. That is a trusted free product I've used for years.

 

Or try manually deleting the Temp folder files. The installer may be reusing corrupt cached files in the Temp folder and causing an issue.

Hi Jim I tried everything with microsoft support and nothing worked. My wife has Windows 8.1 on her desktop so I loaded FSX disc 1 on her computer and the disc ran perfect right up to where you click install. I have P3DV3.1 and XPX sim on my HD and all work fine. I installed the disc set of XPX last month. I am really scratching my head on this one?

Hi VeryBumpy, I did the CCleaner as I have it also with no luck and deleted the Temp files, still no help.

You're not the only one.  This is one of the most common errors reported here since FSX was first released.  Something gets caught in memory and messes up the install.  I would scan your system for corruption - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833

 

If that does not work, you may have to do a clean install of Windows 10 (ugh!).

Mine wouldn't install from the disk so I created an iso image of each disk then mounted them with DarmonTool LE. Installed just fine from the image.

Hi Jim, thanks. I will scan my system for corruption. Speaking of corruption I do think that maybe the installshield file could be corrupt. What if I tried copying the installshield folder from my wife's computer and install it on mine? Would it matter since my OS is W10 and hers is W8.1? Just a thought. You are right I just may have to back up my stuff and do a clean install.

Thanks Pete, how do you do a iso image?

I think I used Nero Dvd but there are lots of free software for creating an image. I even think daemon tools ( free version ) has the ability to create an image. You need a program like daemon tools to mount the image anyway ( it acts like a vurtual DVD-rom )

 

Let us know how you make out.

Hi Lamar,

 

If there was a solution to this problem that fix everyone, then it would have surely been posted by now.  I think Pete has an excellent suggestion.  Worth trying for sure!  Here's one link that might help in making this image - http://pcsupport.about.com/od/software-tools/a/create-iso-image-file.htm

 

Best regards,

Hi Jim, thanks so much for your help. I will do as Pete suggested and make an iso copy of the FSX disc's. Thanks for all the tips, I bookmarked them for future use. Let you know how this turns out.

Thanks Pete for your help as well, you just may save me from a clean W10 install. This method reminds me that several years ago I did a clone of my whole OS with a program called Xclone. I will let you know how it goes.

I see you have tried  the KB910816 fix without success.   The other one that seems to be related to error 1628 is error 1722 (problem with the Installer Package).   The KB928080 is the fix for that one.   Here's the link if you wish to try this one:   https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/928080

 

This is the Software Licensing System Reset Tool Package.   Even though the instructions are for XP/Vista, it will work on Win10.

Hi Jim, up and running! Creating an image of dvd's did the job. I won't to thank you for all your help. Happy flying, maybe this will help other pilots that has the same problem.

Hi Chris got fsx working with imaging fsx discs.  I won't to thank you just the same. All my years of simming never had anything to stump me like this? I guess it is a Windows 10 thing. Happy flying.

First create all the dvd images then mount the first dvd and it should install

 

I tried to install FSX with help of iso images. But after running the first image (=DVD1) I was prompted to load DVD2, but it was not possible for me to continue with start of second image. How did you do it. Your help for me would be appreciated.
