Can't install FC3 Lockon is to old.

I have Windows 8 Pro MCE. Lockon won't install I am a IT admin so it's not something simple. I can't get the lockon installer to install error -6002. KB's don't work reinstall and OS rebuild does not work. What sort of support do I have with FC3? I can't install it because it's not compatible CM = no permissions = no install-shield updates = no. What future solution does DCS have when modern systems have a EOL (End of Life) situation with the lockon installer in order to get FC3 installed....

Lock On installed successfully from the CD on my system (Windows 8 Pro with Media Center, using the standard Lock On: Modern Air Combat).

 

I would suggest running the installer as administrator and/or using compatibility mode but it sounds like you have already tried it, I hope you can find a solution.

Same here, no problem installing with the original Lockon cd-rom in Windows 8 Pro.

No clues in any of the logs, process monitor?

That's why the FC3 aircraft will be released individually in the future, with AFM, without the requirement of a Lockon installation.

Just a suggestion, I don't know if it works.

Try to install your Lock On version on an older PC with Win XP/Vista/7. Then try just to copy the Lock On Folder to your current Win8 system, maybe Lock On is to stupid to notice it.

I would assume DCS looks for a registry key and not the actual install; maybe if you could replicate the registry entries in Windows 8...
