So I downloaded FlightGear yesterday and I can't make it work. When I hit "Fly!" Fatal exception: bad conversion appears.

Here's my log: https://pastebin.com/3eHHNs16

My PC specs:
Win 10 Pro 64-bit
AMD FX-8350
GTX 1060 3GB
8GB ram

Can you help me?

NVM, so I just changed download location to "FlightGear 2018.3.1\data\Scenery" and it works!
