Airbus X Installation Error

Recommended Posts

Hi

I recently downloaded the Airbus X version 1.1 and attempted to install having uninstalled previous Airbus X and Airbus X Extended. When trying to install, after putting in my email\and serial number I get a message saying Feature Transfer Error - Catastrophic Failure - as per attached. Never had this issues with any Aerosoft programs before any ideas? Thanks!

Just a shot in the dark:

You didn't forget - for the first time in your life - to install as an administrator? Any firewalls, antivirus software, Windows defender, UAC interfering?

I'm asking the installer builder to comment on this one. Have not see this before.

Thanks all - outcome the same when I install as the administrator. I can't actually extract the file to run the installer on the C drive now and get the attached. I can only extract and run the installer if I move the installer to the F drive on my PC. Does this point to some error on the C drive which might be causing the problem? Thanks again.post-310-0-27639700-1369674372_thumb.png

From http://www.windowsanswers.net/articles/fix-0x80004005 (great site btw, keep note it also tries to promote certain software though)

Error 0x80004005 denotes "Access denied". This error message indicates that the program that returned the error did not have sufficient priveleges to perform the requested operation. Windows and it's file system are protected by an ascending hierarchy of permission levels. Programs may only perform operations for which they have the required permissions. If a program attempts to perform an operation for which it does not have the necessary permissions, it may return the error 0x80004005 (Access denied). This result is by design in adherence to Windows' security parameters. In order for a program to successfully complete an operation that requires permissions above it's normal clearance level, it's permission level must be elevated by an Administrator.

Even if you are the Administrator of the computer, it does not mean the programs that you operate inherit the same permissions as you. In fact, for security reasons, Administrators are practically operated as standard users by default; although, they do retain the ability to elevate permissions for themselves and individual programs on-demand. If you are experiencing error 0x80004005 regularly or whenever you try to perform a specific operation, the default privileges for those programs are insufficient for the completion of the requested operation and must be adjusted accordingly to prevent further errors. Sometimes granting an individual program Administrative privileges by default will not satisfy the cause of the error. In many cases, the program in error is attempting to access the registry for protected information. The registry is also protected by this security scheme and the key that is being accessed may require that special permissions be written for it to be accessed freely by other programs.

Common Causes of Error 0x80004005

A program requesting elevated permissions may run into problems in various stages of the process depending on what program is requesting access and what it is requesting access to. Because all programs are treated differently based on their purpose, you may encounter seemingly similar instances of 0x80004005 that are in fact completely different in circumstance. The common causes of error 0x80004005 are listed below.

Common causes of Error 0x80004005...

  • Misconfiguration in system
  • The user is not logged in as an Administrator
  • The user mistakenly denied elevated privileges to the program's request.
  • The program is requesting access to an object that does not supply sufficient privileges for itself.
  • Virus/Malware infections

In essence, error 0x80004005 is the result of a program trying to do something it isn't allowed to do. In this vain, the error is not an error at all, but under the circumstances that it is preventing a legitimate request, it becomes an error and a problem. Diagnosing this particular error requires extensive monitoring and troubleshooting to observe where the request is being denied, however we've created a guide to manually fixing 0x80004005 errors for do-it-yourself'ers.

Thank Mathijs - ill look into that for the C drive. The installer opens and runs however on my F (secondary) drive though up until I get the catastrophic error message which comes from the installer not my PC. I have FSX on my F Drive and normally copy/save installers there as I have very little space on the C drive and it always had worked before? Thanks.
