    Windows 10/FSX/Error1722

    I'm trying to reinstall FSX on my computer with Win10 & I keep getting a "Error 1722". Can anybody help me get this done, especially getting past the "Error 1722" ?

    It's a well documented Windows installer error:

    https://windowsreport.com/error-1722-fsx/

    In short:


    1. Scan the Registry
    2. Start the Windows Installer Service
    3. Reregester the Windows Installer Service
    4. Open the Program and Uninstall Troubleshooter
    5. Enable Windows Script Hosting
    6. Set up a new Admin Account


    Hope this helps!

    I recently bought a new rig and had to re-install all the stuff. Had some issues with FSX but finally succeeded after lengthy tries, search for fixes and two complete re-install.
    So where are you stuck, it maybe I had same pb and so possible solution?

    Just at the end before the program goes to registeration. This has happened every time I try to install it. The infamous "error 1722" comes up & I try again after using Priller's solution. Just will not work.

    Hi Folks

    FSX Error 1722 is a Software Licensing issue
    occuring when you attempt to reinstall FSX.

    Please see the official Microsoft Support page -
    Error 1722 when reinstalling Flight Simulator X

    Hopefully that should fix it.

    N.B.
    Important that when installing FSX, you do so as ADMINISTRATOR.

    ok, if its the registration of fsx acceleration issue I know it.

    It's no an easy one, surprisingly a mater of registry, not written exactly the proper way.
    Please do the following before installing acceleration:

    Go to the bottom left to the command zone and type 'regedit'
    Then 'Edit' in the top bar, look for 'search'
    When in 'search' type 'UpperFilters'
    After a short while you may see on the right side of the window 'UpperFilters REG_MULTI_SZ XXXX'

    XXXX may be different things. Go to the next until you read 'partmgr'
    For me it is in the key 53487c23-680f-4585-acc3-1f10d6777e82.
    IF YOU READ PartMgr change to partmgr by clicking onto 'UpperFilters'.

    Then install Acceleration again. It will ask for registration without anymore trouble.

    Can't get it to install. None of the above procedures work for me. Will try any other ideas.

    Hi Folks

    Jim -

    Open WINDOWS EXPLORER, (file-manager).

    Click in the BREADCRUMB PATH
    it'll change to the true FOLDER PATH

    Type in the following -
    %TEMP%
    Press ENTER

    Path will change to the USER's TEMP folder.



    In the FILE pane (right-hand).
    Click on the NAME column header
    to ensure they're ALPHA SORTED by FILENAME

    Ignoring any subfolders,
    scroll down to files beginning with F

    Look for any LOG files named -
    FlightSimWHATEVER.log



    Zip them all up
    and post them here as an attachment.

    Is that another chicken joke?
    Think I'll wait for FS2020

    Jim, when you do the regedit search on 'UpperFilters', have you found partmgr? or PartMgr?


  12. #12
    Depending on when I do it. I have found both. I've been told (by Microsoft search) to change it to "partsmgr".
    Anyway It still doesn"t work.

    1. run regedit (Windowskey +R)
    2. Expand the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTRO L\CLASS\{4D36E967-
    E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    3. After you find the folder, double-click Upperfilters on the right side.
    4. Change the value from 0 to PartMgr and/or remove any other settings and then click OK.
    5. Close Registry Editor
    6. Start FSX/Accel and you should get the registration wizard.

    The most important thing to remember is that the registry entry PartMgr must, MUST be capitalized as shown. The capitol P and M. The rest must be lower-case. A lot of folks make the mistake of making it all lower case, or whatever.

    Good luck!

    GOT IT. Problem was basically as you folks said it was; all I had to do was implement it properly. Thanks all. I surely appreciate the help.
