Can't install any aircraft anymore

Unread post by thomastee »

Can't install anything anymore without getting an error message "error 2 creating this folder. The system cannot find the file specified. The installation will be canceled". Automatic or Custom installation, makes no difference. WIn10, P3Dv4.5 Wasn't a problem until a couple of months ago.

Any ideas?

TIA

Tom

Hi Tom

Try to reinstall your simulator from the scratch (it's boring, I know... but sometimes a clean install solves a lot of problems)

Hi,

It's probably your antivirus program which is stopping the creation of a folder in your Documents folder. The auto installer will drop the Add-ons documentations and Uninstaller link there.

I had the same issue with Bitdefender, the solution was to add my folder Documents to the whitelist or to disable Safe file

That's exactly what was happening to me and what I did to resolve the issue, but thanks for the follow up.
