Here it comes!
1. After having difficulties in running the installer of the Win 64-version of the X-Plane, I complained of that to the email@example.com. Their response as soothing as: "Hello, Sir. Thank you for your interest in X-Plane and for taking the time to write in. That URL listed below (http://www.x-plane.com/downloads/digital-download-installer/) is the only server we have set up to download the program. Keep in mind that X-Plane is very large and that it can easily take 20 to 60 hours to download and install the program if you tell the installer to download scenery for All of Earth. Definitely, it would be a good idea to be selective in what you ask the installer to do, how much scenery to download, etc."
- this answer did not address to the problem as it was (at least of how I saw it to be) ... "did I ever get that far to even to have a chance to select the scenery files to download and install? ... unfortunately I did not."
2. Having sent another "request of support having failed another installation of this payed product", also having provided the log.txt file of the failing installation + a file of "screenshots of how I tried to install this product and sadly failed", to firstname.lastname@example.org ... I have not to this day received an answer/query for further information.
But now my rant on the "Q&A @ X-Plane.com" finally has been notified.
) is the "log.txt" out of the failed install of the X-Plane on
- Windows 10, 64-bit
- installing it on an user account "pretending" being the administrator (Run as Administrator)
- installing the software out of and in to somewhere else than the 'Desktop'.
This log.txt is from my last attempt
- on Win10 64-bitg
- having logged on the system as the Administrator
- running and telling the installer run and install from/on the 'Desktop' of this administrator's account
By the way... on the 64-bit Linux (Ubuntu 15.10 64-bit)
1. the downloaded installer did not halt like the installer on Win 10 did, but
2. seems to have downloaded 'only' the scenery files and other options I had the choice to choose of
3. the installer ran fine = seems to have installed 'everything' I asked it to install, and
4. the software seems to be running as well as I expected
If needed for a comparision, the X-Plane Installer Log.txt in Ubuntu 15.10 is here:
