Adib,If you have installed FSX before, and/or you have installed any add-ons, it is possible that some of the registry entries did not get completely removed. This can keep FSX from reinstalling or cause the installation to fail.Try using the FSX Registry repair tool from Flight 1 available from the below link.http://www.flight1.com/view.asp?page=libraryRun the registry repair tool and then attempt a reinstallation of FSX. Hopefully that will do the trick. And thank Flight 1 for a handy tool!!

I tried Flight1's FSX Registry repain, but there's no exe file found in the PC. i did an advanced search. The Exact error message if i choose the option to remove is, Error Number 0x80040702 Description failed to load DLL: GameuxInstallhelper. Set Up will now termintae, when researched the error people spoke of using registry repairs like RegClean and RegCure. None of them made a difference. Toughhhh.Best Regards Adib Afraj
