You you have any error.log, crashlogs and similar in your BlackShark Temp folder? If so, please post them. A DxDiag and information would also be nice.

 

BUT

 

The "Permission denied" there leads me to suspect that you have installed the simulator into the Program Files folder and not started it as administrator. That would cause windows to not give it permission to change anything in the configuration files, creating such an error.

 

Try starting it in administrator mode (right-click, run as administrator) and see if that fixes the issue.

You have installed the wrong patch. Either the wrong language at all or the wrong version (the installer on pre-101c-Versions was broken). Download 1.0.1c from the files-page:

EtherealN you are good. I started with admin mode and it worked. Why is that was I not loged in as an admin when I installed? How can I all ways start it from the shortcut on the desktop now without a right click? (I just found it in the properties tab for the shortcut)

There was no error log. What is a DxDiag for future refrence? Thanks guys for the help!!!!

DxDiag is an application in the DirectX suite. It basically makes a quick analysis of your hardware and list the information in a text file. This is an easy way to give complete information about your system to a helpdesk or people assisting in troublshooting.

 

The reason why it didn't give you automatic administrator access in spite of you having it when you installed is part of a windows security measure meant to guard against a phenomenon called "rights escalation", where hostile software or viruses will be able to use infections of such programs (or being carried as a trojan payload in a program) to gain administrator access to your machine. This way, you have to be explicit about giving a program access to the priviliges that are necessary to edit files in the Program Files folder structure. This has the effect that if a program that normally wouldn't need such access gets infected by something that tries something nasty that will get denied and/or you as a user will be prompted for explicit permission.

 

Generally speaking I tend to install Games into a separate folder (C:\Games :D ) due to this reason. The security scheme around the Program Files folders are generally meant for programs that don't get edited all that often, but rather where the files that the user edits end up in the "My Documents" folder and similar folders (that don't have this protection).
