Acceleration and error code

Recommended Posts

This is a strange one.  After messing around trying to get AS16 installed properly...suddenly, when starting FSX, I get a "product activation error ERROR CODE: 8-c0000006" which apparently indicates a problem with either FSX or Acceleration.  Following advice from another AVSIM forum I started to uninstall Acceleration.  I'm not sure if it uninstalled or not.  So... I thought I would just re-install Acceleration.  Put in my disk (bought and paid for!) but it wasn't recognized by the CD drive.  Possible that the disk is damaged.

 

I'm an old retired guy and FS is the only thing that keeps me from going nuts.  Would appreciate any help from my FS brothers and sisters.

This is caused by an issue with the registry.  After uninstalling Acceleration, run a registry cleaner like CCleaner or Advanced System Care and try reinstalling. 

 

If you decide to uninstall FSX too, I recommend using the PMDG uninstall/reinstall guide - http://support.precisionmanuals.com/kb/a87/how-to-uninstall-and-reinstall-fsx.aspx

Now I can't seem to be able to uninstall Acceleration.  I get an error message that says "the specified account already exists."

How are you trying to uninstall Acceleration?  Are you using Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs?

Tried both Control Panel and IO Bit uninstaller from Advanced System Care.  BTW just started FSX with FSX Real Wx and everything was fine.  I think my problems may be with the recently installed AS16.

Sounds like it.  Did you uninstall AS16 to see if this fixed the problem?  If you want I can move your topic to the Active Sky Forum here to see if one of their techs can figure out what went wrong.

Actually I have a ticket with AS16 and they are now working on the problem.

 

Thanks for your help
