  1. Hi repaid21, unfortunately it has nothing to do with UAC or permissions. It must be an error in the V1.2 FULL package. I remember having sent files to aerosoft support regarding this issue without getting any answers. I got rid of this issue by uninstalling V1.2 FULL (beware - your other missions might be affected afterwards), then installing V1.11 FULL plus the V1.2 UPDATE. Not sure if you can still get V1.11 though...
  2. Did some flying in Iceland and Keflavik last weekend and I must say I'm impressed! Iceland X can keep you busy for weeks hopping around all the airfields and lonely places, while Keflavik is a good base and great for oversea flights to busier places in the world. I had no frame drops at all at any time, neither by day or night. With the discount available, both products are a bargain and I'm happy that the launcher is optional. Excellent job, Thorsten!
  3. Can't find V1.20 either. In the support section I can only find an "Update / Full new build version 1.11" entry plus various fixes. In my account there are only V1.11 files listed as well.
  4. Well, thanks for your comments... there's been a lot of talk about the whole launcher thing and the issues since it was introduced... I can accept your point of view and I would even agree to implement that on download products - but not on boxes. Other publishers use various online registration procedures (which I avoid as well), but most tend to sell their boxes without them (so I buy their boxes). I'm not so keen on GAF 11 that I would allow a launcher on my PC - my personal "stress test" was to successfully avoid Stuttgart X... box... ;-) I waited for Keflavik X to be released to see if it has the launcher... it hasn't - so I bought it together with Iceland X
  5. Installer... just noticed part 11 requires the launcher (unlike the other parts)... Going to skip this one.
  6. Wow, looks nice! But I wonder if part 11 has the same flickering ground/runway texture problems as the rest of the series...
  7. Please read these topics... it's a known problem posted almost a year ago... It affects both versions 1.11 and 1.20. http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?showtopic=36003 http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/43650-v120-fault/
  8. It's been a while since I sent the requested files. Any news on this yet? I will ask again for you.
  9. This problem was also present in V1.11. http://www.forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?showtopic=36003
  10. Hi there, I've got a problem installing the Catalina V1.20 full package. After reinstalling FSX ACC, I randomly picked the Cat first for installation. When the routine tries to add the scenery to FSX, this message comes up: PBY Catalina X - Install Shield Wizard "ERROR with edit FSCategories.xml..the Mission is not available." Well, the mission is actually there, but it looks like the V1.20 installer is not able to add the mission when there was no "Aerosoft Flights" entry before. After uninstalling the Catalina the original FSCategories.xml is wrecked, leaving a 5 byte file (content: ഼) and every other addon which tries to add missions will struggle. It was handy that I kept the V1.11 installer, un- and reinstalled FSX, then applied V1.11 to vanilla FSX ACC without any issues (uninstall also kept my FSCategories.xml intact). I haven't noticed this bug before, as I never installed the Cat first and the last time I used V1.20 was to upgrade installed V1.11. Can this be fixed? Cheers Tom
  11. Thank you Mathijs. So my DVDs/CDs and my download products (all registered and updated) which I bought to this day are able to avoid this new process. But, if a new patch for any of these products comes up (or a completely new full installer) - would this require online activation? Or, if I buy e.g. Iceland X v1.00 now and a patch might appear later, would this patch (or new full installer) use that?
  12. Funny that everyone seems to like this... Personally I don't, but well... Will this online activation stuff also become essential for any further updates for older products? And what about boxed products?
  13. Glad to hear you fixed it I agree, Aerosoft should fix it with a new installer or patch (same for the Catalina).
  14. Sorry to bring this up again. The torpedo issue on the 2nd plane is still open, but what about the new ASC.CFG? Finn's file is larger (4.10KB) than the original files (1.70KB) and has over 100 additional VAR entries. Does this file address more sounds? And should all ASC.CFGs from other variants be replaced with this one? Thank you for any reply. Tom
