I have been searching for hours on end looking for a solution to this problem. But I have found NOTHING. >,< I've talked to Microsoft, but they haven't even been able to fix it. I've come to the conclusion that re-formatting my hard-drive(s) is the only option. But I thought I would see if any one else has had the same problem and resolved it. I will try and provide as much information as I can. =) Thanks.
A while back ago I uninstalled Flight Sim for some reason that I don't remember (This has been awhile ago, maybe 9-10 months ago), and I tried to reinstall it. But I've been receiving a message that says "The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it. F:\Microsoft Flight Simulator X.msi". And I've gone through probably EVERY single Google search result and I've found absolutey NOTHING. >,<
I'll give you a step-by-step explanation of what I'm doing and what happens. I'll try to include pictures and maybe a video so you can see what's happening in real-time.
First, I put the first DVD into one of my two DVD drives. (One is LightScribe and the other is not). I don't know the exact manufacturers or models, but I can get those if you absolutely need it.
It starts loading and everything...
And then this message comes up...
The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it. F:\Microsoft Flight Simulator X.msi
And that is as far as it gets. =(
The DVD is in fair condition, a few scratches here-and-there, but other than that it's fine.
Thank you soooo much you guys. I do hope I can get this fixed. I really want to fly! =D[/quote]
Did you uninstall it exactly like this.
If not, that's your problem.
The scratches don't help much either.
Was that problem ever resolved ? I have exactly the same problem.
Honestly, if either of the DVDs are scratched and they can't be buffed clean just buy a new copy. I had the same thing happen to me and I ended up buying a new copy of the game. $30 spent twice but I learned my lesson: keep the DVDs clean.
