  1. Well, I'm in Lukla. I need to read the manual, I haven't got it set up properly yet. But a big thank you to all at Aerosoft who pitched in to help me sort it out. 10/10 for customer service. TT
  2. Ok, I found Scenery in the Main folder so I will see if I can induce Simstarter to recognize it. TT
  3. Tantalizingly close Tom. Your suggestion worked and after several rounds of fisticuffs with Microsoft, who insisted I open a new User a/c with Microsoft fingerprints all over it, which was not my inclination, I was able to run the install. I did find that when I right clicked on setup.exe to 'Run as Administrator' & provided the Administrator password, nothing happened. However when I left clicked on setup.exe after that, the installation started & took my purchase code & ran happily right through to advising me that Lukla had been successfully installed. (I think it did run under Administrator as I have found the new User a/c is requiring an Admin p/w for every new excursion, & they work after I have put it in) However, when I ran Simstarter to load it into P3D v4.5, I received a message that the Scenery Folder was missing. & so it proved to be per the attached screen shot. Any thoughts on where it could be hiding? Thanks for your help. TT
  4. I thought my PC might be running a blocker that was stopping setup.exe performing. However, I just downloaded & installed Aerosoft Trondheim-Vaernes V2 without any issues. I have a query re setup.exe files, there are 2 appearing. The first one is on the same page as the Setup folder & does produce an Aerosoft flash screen for about 5 seconds, then an error message about 10 seconds later. (1st & 2nd shots below) The other one, in the Setup folder, does nothing at the moment. (3rd shot below) Should there be 2 setup.exe , (application), files?? TT
  5. Andreas D/L new file & installed. It came through as per your earlier screen shots, the multiples have gone. However, unfortunately, setup.exe does not run. No response when I 'Run as Administrator" Screenshots below. I think I will d/load something such as an XPlane freeware & see if that installs in case my PC is the culprit. It will be later today as I have to head out. Will advise result. Thanks TT
  6. Thank you. I appreciate the effort Aerosoft is putting into helping me. TT
  7. This set is after right clicking on Zipped downloaded file, then left clicking thereafter. When I do setup.exe, 'Run as Administrator, nothing happens. Not sure if it is relevant, but when the zipped file is Extracting, it says '22 files to be copied" Thank you TT
  8. Ok Running Win10 Home Edition I will send screen shots in 2 posts. This 1st one is where I left click on the zipped folder & left clicked through what was showing. You can see the folders opening progression in the row under the menu item section. The next set will be after I right clicked on the zipped file. Thanks TT
  9. Otto I did a fresh download & no change in the outcome. I am still getting multiple folders with the same name. I am beginning to wonder if there is something wrong with the file I am downloading. I purchased it yesterday from PC Aviator, (PCA) using Paypal. The Download link at PCA shows a File of 6,785,275,401 bytes The zipped download is 6,626,249 kb When I downloaded it into a new location and left clicked on the Zip file I got a folder "AS_Lukla-Mount-Everest-Extreme-P3DV4" (I am assuming from your example above with the pointing hand that that is what you did, (Left clicked) . I don't get what you get above. (Setup & Licence agreements) I did the right click Extract on the zipped download and ended up with the same repetition of "AS_Lukla-Mount-Everest-Extreme-P3DV4" that I have been getting all the time. Where you say "in the following dialog choose the folder you created above and click on "Extract"", I can't do that as 'Extract" is not an option showing in the drop down menu. ie, there is not a file there requiring Extraction, [other than the original downloaded zipped file.] Is there a way Aerosoft can verify that PC Aviator has the correct P3D v4 file set up for download? TT
  10. Ok Thanks I will try that later this morning. Chores etc. TT
  11. Yes, unzipped it. This is my sequence: Downloaded zipped AS_Lukla-Mount-Everest-Extreme-P3DV4. Zipped folder is 6,626,249 kb Unzipped the Download & I get a folder of the same name. (AS_Lukla-Mount-Everest-Extreme-P3DV4) When I open that I get a folder of the same name. (AS_Lukla-Mount-Everest-Extreme-P3DV4) When I open that I get another folder of the same name, (AS_Lukla-Mount-Everest-Extreme-P3DV4), plus the Manuals in en & de. When I open the 'same name' folder I get a Setup folder, 4 licensing agreements & a Setup.exe file. I then went into the Setup Folder & ran setup.exe that was in there. What I thought was odd was getting an "AS_Lukla-Mount-Everest-Extreme-P3DV4" Folder 3 times The Zipped Folder is 6.626,249 kb. The unzipped Folder shows as 6,626.240 kb, but then shows as 6.31 kb if I move it to the Recycle Bin. Bit of a head scratcher. TT
  12. Thank you for having a look at this. I had already run the setup.exe you refer to, but have gone back & reinstalled the program & run it again, but with no result, nothing coming up on screen. I can hear the drive running for about 10 seconds, then it tapers off. There wasn't the Aerosoft Flash Screen that came up when I ran Setup.exe from the Folder prior to the one you refer to. One clue might be that I had to re-install P3D about 6 months ago. I found that I also have had to reinstall a lot of scenery. I had the old Lukla but hadn't got to reinstalling that before the new one came out recently. In searching my drives I found remnants of the old Lukla in: S\Lockheed Martin\P3Dv4\Ecosystem\Aerosoft My Uninstaller program hadn't picked them up so I manually deleted them. Possibly old Lukla material is still in the Registry & blocking this installation? I am not sure how to locate it if that is the case. As I said I have the Firewall & AV turned off, but I suspect Windows Defender is still 'on' & wonder if that could be interfering. In the sequence of files that you have listed, data2.cab has 6,594,157 kb. & setup.exe has 928 kb. TT
  13. I have had 2 attempts without success. Basic data: Running P3D v4.5.12.30293 Academic. OS: Win10 Home. Firewall & AV turned off. Downloaded zipped AS_Lukla-Mount-Everest-Extreme-P3DV4 folder is 6,626,249 kb It unzips & I get a folder of the same name. When I open that I get a folder of the same name. When I open that I get another folder of the same name, plus the Manuals in en & de. When I open the 'same name' folder I get a Setup folder, 4 licensing agreements & a Setup file. When I right click on the Set up file, (735kb), & Open as Administrator I get an Aerosoft flash screen for about 10 seconds, then it disappears & a screen pops up saying , 'the software may or may not have installed properly' It hasn't installed so I am wondering what to do next. I have tried running the Set Up file in the Set Up folder, but that doesn't work either. Any help would be appreciated. TT
