CAn't reinstall fs9 can anyone help?


Recommended Posts

I had to re-install fs9 a couple of times before in the past and never had a problem but now i uninstalled it becuase there were loads of problems so now when i re-install from the CD it gets to 9% and sticks at the file douglas_dc3_1_D.bmp then will hold for 20 secs and then it comes up with an error saying "msfs 2004 has encountered a disk error while wrirting the file douglas_dc3_1_D.bmp. make sure your hard disk is not full and that the file is not in use"

 

Well my hard drive has over 33GB free so not a problem i also scanned it for errors and found none. And i'm sure the file was not in use as i closed everything down.

 

Does anyone have a clue i haven't been able to fly for a couple of days now and it's driving me CRAZY!!

 

If anyone has any suggestions i would be most grateful to hear them

Found the problem my CD seems to have a scratch which i didn't notice before ( i checked with a disk scanner and it said there was a problem with one of the cab files on there) ! OH NO!! I am now using a tool to try and get the information from the CD onto my hard drive i will then copy these files back onto a different CD. If this works i may just back up all my FS9 cds.

 

Thanks Guys!

I'm under the impression that Microsoft will replace the damaged disk.

Microsoft must also have stopped Support for FS9.

After a complete System Failure with recovery I am unable to find the 9.1 Update...
