Problem Installing PFPX

Recommended Posts

I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 32bit and FS9.

I downloaded and installed PFPX to the default folder and then copied the PFPX Hotfix 1.28.pi to that folder and overwrote the original PFPX.exe but was unable to install because of two error messages. I then followed theHow to fix PFPX runtime problems

supplied in this forum. On checking there were no Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 in the programs and feateatures so I attempted to install Microsoft Visual++ 2017 and got a message SETUP FAILED.

I am getting really frustrated as I have now been trying to resolve this sitauation for 3 days and still not been able to use PFPX so any help would be much appreciated.

 

regards

Ok, try uninstalling via windows control panel.

 

Uninstall any Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 / 2017 redistributable entries via control panel.

 

Reboot and download / install PFPX v2.03 from HERE

 

Install the latest vcredist 2015-2019 x86 version from HERE

 

There is no hotfix for version 2 of PFPX

Yes I did

Big mistake, you should not copy an older version over a new one. ;)

Something is preventing the install of the Microsoft vcredist.
