Install rejects a ERROR_FUNCTION_FAILED error and there's no possibility to correct it. So "Starting services" does not do the trick and installation immediately stops instead of trying to continue. Crashes at start-up and the progress bars behind the splash screen can not be seen if virtual desktop is not emulated.

Sorry, but I can't understand how an "app" can get a silver rating, that got so many bugs bringing it to crash, or won't even let you install the standalone "game"... Even if you are able to install, you can't activate, no addons where tested, and you can't even setup a flight properly thats not predefined... for me this means not even a bronze rating... this is just crap and one the reasons some still need windows if they wan't to have some games running. I hope somebody will just fix this, so me and some can finally do what they suppose to do: "FORMAT C:" and setup a standalone linux-distribution...
Can't install FSX
by Erufailon on Tuesday May 3rd 2011, 8:43
I tried installing FSX with Wine 1.3 and while it installs it pops a message that some error occurred and it has to stop installation, all that before asking for CD2. Sometimes it crashes while loading the InstallShield.
I have installed successfully with winetricks msxml4, direct3d, vcrun2005 with no problem, I think it must be bug 25558
Any help would be appreciated...
I moved from windows to Ubuntu and I really miss FSX, I know there is X-plane with native support for Linux but I prefer FSX.
