- I insert DVD and proceed to install "Flight Simulator X - Deluxe Edition" - DVD spins and installation starts, its starts to prepare installation - Then it gets stuck and I get an error: "1628: Failed to complete installation" - I tried compatibility mode with XP and Vista, but nothing. - I tied running all installer files as administrator, but nothing. The game will not install in Windows 7 RC 64-bit  A brief description of my system: - ASUS P6T V2 deluxe motherboard - 6 GB triple channel RAM - Intel 920 i7 1366 CPU - SATA HDD - USB DVD drive - Dual EVGA nvidia 9800 GT OC in SLI FSX installs fine in Windows XP and Vista (32 bit), this is the first time I try on a 64 bit OS. I have read people running this in Windows 7 so I am puzzled. I appreciate any advice and comments.
