DC3 download and installation

Recommended Posts

Late-2011 15" MacBook Pro, XP10.51r2

I run the installer from the Finder> Downloads, the X-Aviation splash screen appears then is replaced by the message "There has been an error. Installer payload initialization failed. This is likely due to an incomplete or corrupt file."

I've restarted the computer, deleted and redownloaded the file, but I get the same result every time I try to run the installer.

Ideas?

Nope, no joy. I made Unarchiver the default .zip application and put Winzip (temporarily) in the Trash, redownloaded, same result. It's only with X-Aviation products that this has ever occurred, other .zip files open just fine.

I've only had 1 other case of this happening, that I know of.  Definitely unusual.  We'll get you straightened out.

We're getting into an area where I have no control.  Installers and activation's are to be handled using the X Aviation contact page, which can be found at the link I provided.

Hi

This from the system log - otherwise I can't see any other messages..

Hi

Was there any resolution to this problem in the end?  It's now late 2019 and I have the same problem with this installer on MacOS.  The LES Saab340 installer runs fine.  The DC-3 one looks to be pretty old - the last modified date appears to be 2013. 

UPDATE: I appear to have 'resolved' the problem (or rather worked-around) by:

- right-click setup-osx

- Show Package Contents

- Open the MacOS folder and dbl-click the osx-intel executable

--> the 'normal' x-aviation installer then seems to launch ok.
