Are you trying to use the new test version? The new test version is not compatible with pre-Win7 versions of Windows.

The 2015 stable version should work fine.

I also suffer from a case of the Vistas. :lol:

This problem happened to me on my Windows XP, a similar message. I've tried to do a search but without any solution.
Not sure if works for you, but:

1 - After downloading YSFlight, Right click on the file and open with Windows Explorer (Since every time you try to extract with WinRar this message error is showed).
2 - After found the ysinstaller.exe rename it to .zip or rar
3 - And again open with Windows Explorer to prevent the annoying error.
4 - And finally select all stuff inside of ysinstaller.exe, and manually drag them on the YSFlight path e. g. C:\Program Files\YSFLIGHT.COM\YSFLIGHT all files on the folder, hope thats help.

I've noticied also, that the download on https://ysflight.org/download/ is off. And for unknown reasons the download with Cnet https://download.cnet.com/YS-Flight-Sim ... tag=button show to me a privacy error
