I am not from Laminar Research; just a flight simmer from downunder.
As you are having problems when starting X-Plane my initial response is:- Are you running your system as the administrator and have you deactivated your antivirus system.
Are you running X-Plane as a digital download? If so you need to be connected to the internet at all times when running or trying to run X-Plane. If it is a disc version then you need to have dvd 1 in your disc drive at all times
Please attach your log.txt file for others with a greater knowledge base than me may be able to determine your problem. Make sure it is not the "installer log.txt" file
If having difficulty in attaching the file follow the advice given at http://questions.x-plane.com/?qa=blob&qa_blobid=17830136656522860642
