Plugin installer fails to find x-plane because it's looking in the wrong place

#1 Post by TruculentSucculent » Thu Mar 18, 2021 6:18 pm

I downloaded 'Flightsim plugins 3.2 Home Use.exe' yesterday and had issues installing it. When executing, it demands to run with administrative privileges, which I agreed to. Then it fails to find the X-Plane installation location because it's looking for C:\Users\admin_account\AppData\Local\x-plane_install_11.txt. That file doesn't exist. Since I installed X-Plane as a regular user, C:\Users\regular_user\AppData\Local\x-plane_install_11.txt instead exists (and, incidentally, has the standard "C:\X-Plane 11" as its contents). After copying the file from regular_user into admin_account, the installation succeeded.
