Dear Madam, Sir,
I recently purchased X-Plane11 (DVD box) and looking forward using it. However I have some installation difficulties.
First I got a few messages in relation to the destination on my PC (Windows 10). The default installation seems to be on the deskop (maybe shortcut only). I tried to relocate to another destination.
Typically there are 2 directories for my computer programs : C/ Program Files and C/ Program Files (x86). This didn't work with X-Plane11 to I felt that installing on C/ X-Plane11 might the best solution.
When running the installation program from DVD 1 I get a message 'Invalid Argument' after some time, with 2 choices (cancel or continue). Continue doesn't work (see 2nd screenshot).
Can you advise what is the problem, and how to solve this ?
Many thanks, Eugene
It is recommended that X-Plane be installed to the desktop. It is never advised to install it to C: or Program files. These locations are known to cause problems.
The attachments did not work. I would suggest deleting any partial install (simply select the folder and hit the delete key--X-Plane does not have an uninstaller program as it does not need it). Then start over using the latest installer available here and install to the desktop or a different drive.
