    Duenna V2.0.2018 R162

    Good Day all,

    For the race and the newest version of the Duenna, please be sure you are running it as administrator. Several have noticed an error where it cannot read the airports.bin file which is where the directory of airports is stored. If this error does come up, the duenna still works and still tracks but it will output no airport information on where you started or ended.

    Should be a simple fix to just run it as administrator and it should output properly.

    Thank you,
    Eamonn Watson

    It took two tries for the airports to register after running as admin. Hope it behaves during the race.

    It is not necessary to run it as administrator. All you have to do is give your log on profile full control of the folder that houses the Duenna files.

    For directions on how to do this see post 7 in this thread

    note you should also do this for the root Flight Simulator folder. it will solve a lot of problems caused by permissions. I do this with all of the programs I install for Flight Simulator.

    The attached example was simply started by clicking the shortcut to the program.

    BTW what the hell is up with the license agreement for this program. It looks like latin. Translates as Latin but still means nothing.

    It's just dummy text that Eamonn hasn't replaced with real text. More info here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorem_ipsum

    Thanks for the suggestions on folder permissions. Useful!

    Dave, don't bother trying to translate the text, it is meaningless and is used everywhere as a placeholder...

    This https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorem_ipsum explains the use quite well...

    hahaha, I just put together an installer for it, I didn't write a licence agreement.

    But yes, folder permissions screw it up, but it wasn't a problem until this latest version and I'm not sure why. So either yes, set your permissions or perhaps not install it in Program Files. Stupid windows..

    Hmm, not having any luck reading the airports at all. Tried running as admin several times and Dave's bit does not work at it denies permission over and over to various folders.

    Here is an example of one of messages it gives me:



    Is the previous version around still? I should go back to it as it was working fine.

    To set the security permissions you have to be logged in as an administrator.

  11. #11
    I did that Dave but no luck. Will mess around with it more this evening to see if I can make it work.

    What version of windows are you running?

    Moses, my apologies for this error, when I updated it this year I didn't make any changes to how the duenna was to access that file so not sure why now this is suddenly an issue.

    You can try uninstalling it entirely, removing all the files then when you reinstall it place it somewhere other than "program files" and see if that helps.

    No worries Eamonn. I will try a couple of different things later.


    Edit:

    I think I've cured it.

    Launch your progams via task manager. Not only can you work around UAC prompts but you'll also be able to run it with admin privileges, all on a single click of your mouse.

    I can provide the task files you can import and tweek for your system if needed. You do NOT need to install any tool to do this, it's already built into windows.

    I have noticed something strange about this version of Duenna. When you land and it drops the baton automatically it shows the message

    "Duenna successfully started. Let's Go!"

    Otherwise it works as far as I can see.

    Just ran a quickie test. Looks okay to me.
