Error message “Please insert the original DVD”

Depending on the installation directory and access rights, it may happen that an update/upgrade cannot be overwritten or that the installer of the update/upgrade asks for the original data carrier.

Solutions for the message “Installer cannot write or save data”. In this case the installer will find the existing aerofly, but cannot write in this path.¬†First make sure that you have finished the simulator and then right click on the update file or the upgrade installer. Now select “Run as administrator”. Now you should be able to install the update/upgrade.¬†Please note that it is now possible that you have to start the simulator with administrator rights as well. You can set this as default by right-clicking on the aeroflyRC icon on the desktop.


Solutions for the message “Please insert the original aerofly data DVD”. In this case the installer will not find the existing aerofly at all. In most cases this is due to the fact that between the first installation and the update/upgrade of the aeroflyRC changes to the user accounts and/or user rights were made manually or by a Windows update. The easiest way is to delete aeroflyRC7 completely and reinstall it.
