What country / state are you located in? I'm seeing a lot more complaints of this but have not been able to reproduce it myself.

Here is Oregon / US

And I attached installer log.txt

As of today running the updater to update scenery online, this bug does not appear to be resolved. I am running the XP11 updater on a MacBook Pro. Same error occurs.

Log file is attached.

It looks like you're trying to install X-Plane to the Mac Applications folder. This does not work for X-Plane since we use a proprietary installer. Please try installing to another location, such as the desktop or documents folder.

@younghoon kim

Your log shows an Intel GPU. There is a known issue with the X-Plane 11 installer and specific Intel GPUs. More info and a workaround here.

Thank you, Jennifer, for sorting that out - it did the trick.

In your specific case, the installer is failing due to Unicode issues. From the log:

os_dir_desktop		=C:\Users/김영훈/Desktop/

The installer cannot recognize the special characters that are used in the User name it looks like. This is a case we definitely need to fix so I will send you a PM so we can work with you to test this and the fix.
