I just received my copy of X-Plane 11 (physical copy), and I am completely unable to get it to install. I've included the install log file
Here's what I have tried so far:
Step 1 - Tried to install on a slave drive out of the box (Selected File Path); got permission denied on 3rd disc; did this twice
Step 2 - Tried to run again, only this time selecting no scenery to see if I could get any install; got permission denied on disc 1
Step 3 - Downloaded the latest version of the installer and ran as administrator, Permission denied on 2nd disc
Step 4 - Tried to simply install to the desktop; permission denied on disc 5. Did this with both the installer on disc and the updated installer downloaded.
Step 5 - Changed access to the P:\ drive (where I originally tried to install X-Plane) to allow full control to the drive, and created an independent folder called "X-Plane" in the hope that it would allow access outside of the drive root. Got permission denied on disc 2.
Step 6 - Repeated Step 5 but tried an install with no scenery just to see if I could get the ball rolling and copy scenery files from disc. Still got a permission denied message.
I have wracked my brain with every solution I could, and after spending 5 hours trying to get the program to install, I'm no closer to flying than I was when I started. I really don't know what else to do, and there's no possibility of me getting my money back, but I basically spent $60 for nothing at this point because I can't install the simulator.
I really need some assistance on how to get this problem working. I have attached the install log from the most recent attempt, but every search I run into on the internet shows people with the same problem as I'm having, with no resolution., which is incredibly disheartening because I wanted to buy directly from Laminar with a physical copy and not have to rely on Steam.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Again, it's incredibly frustrating to purchase a product, follow installation instructions to a T, and not get the product to work.
