Default Can't install FSX

Nearing the end of the FSX install, approximately 1hour and thirty minutes,
I get the message:

"Error 1722
There is a problem with this Windows installer. A program run as part of
the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or
package vendor."

Acknowledging this dialogue box opens another stating "rolling back" with
cpu activity for several minutes.

Then another box appears:

Error 1603

Then it returns to the desktop and the hard disk has as much empty space as
it did when I started.

I then installed a later version of the "installer" program, did a clean
boot (no startup programs) and tried again - exact same result.

Anyone else have this experience?

Many Microsoft customers has had this experince and so far Microsoft cannot
solve it. Do a fresh windows install. That will solve it. After spending
countless days doing all the tips and hints on the net - that was the only
way, I found.

It shouldn't take an hour; perhaps there were a number of ide errors -
too many things interfering with your dvd reader

There is a solution according to this post, but do scan the whole
thread. In case the link doesn't work, the thread at Avsim is called
Installation. and was posted by luis.r as item #106.

Do a fresh Windows install?
That cure seems worse than the illness.
Even if I could do it without reformatting and losing all it would put me
back to SP1 version of Windows with long days of updating on my dial up. My
computer is four years old and my plan is to wait until Spring and replace
it with a new maching with Vista pre-installed.

My computer is four years old

If your computer is 4 years-old DO NOT install FSX!! FS9 will run 10X's
smoother and be more enjoyable.

You NEED (IMHO) a P4 3.0 + gig cpu with 2 gig ram and a kick-a$$ graphics
accelerator with 256 or 512 memory on board. Otherwise you might as well
load the game in the morning to play a slide show at noon.

Wait for your new Vista computer and get as much horsepower as you have
wallet-power. If you don't have wallet power, do what the rest of us
do...us credit power.
