Portugese Speakers: the Installer is Broken

There's a bug in the latest installer/updater: if your machine's default language is Portugese, it will crash.  I will post new installers that fix this as soon as I get back home on Monday (maybe Tuesday if the snow storm is bad enough).

For now, the sim will run, even though the updater will not.

    As a native Portuguese speaker and software developer, I'm very curious to know in more detail about what kind of bug was introduced that is triggered only by the Portuguese locale (and not Spanish, French or Italian, for example). Could you elaborate a little bit more, please?

    • Ben Supnik says:

      There was a typo in the table of language resource files that cascaded into a fatal assert by a series of unlucky coincidences. The bug was introduced (by me) in a patch to code while the installer wasn't being developed, hence its not being detected.

    Sorry for OT but... Could this become X-plane 11? 😛


    Great work with the .20 releases!
