Won't install at all! but I have no firewall in place! (resolved)

Recommended Posts

During install there's the 'test connection' and no matter what I do from this Windows 7 machine (dedicated to my flight sim) I get the installer error "There was an error making proper connection to the server. If you are certain you are connected to the the Internet, please check your firewall settings."

I have disabled the windows firewall, there's no other firewall software installed - I also tested another machine on the network and it PASSES the test, so it's not my router or internet - it's something about this machine that's not happy.  

Can anyone make a suggestion?  Is there a logfile somewhere that will tell me some sort of detail?  Any help is appreciated!

How about an antivirus program that may be interfering?

Fortunately f1 responded quickly to my ticket - wanted to share on this thread what the issue was (it was not the firewall nor antivirus, but a protocol setting!)

Just checkboxed those few items, and off I go!
