How to Fix 0x1007 Error Occurs during Star Citizen installation?

1. Temporarily disable security software: Right-click your antivirus or security program icon in the taskbar and look for a “disable” option. Remember to re-enable it afterward for continued protection.

2. Run the installer as administrator: Right-click the Star Citizen installer, select “Properties,” then go to the “Compatibility” tab. Check the “Run this program as an administrator” box and click “Apply” followed by “OK.”

3. Shorten the installation path: Avoid using folders with multiple nested subfolders. Instead, try installing directly to a root directory like “C:\Games\StarCitizen.”

4. Try a different drive: If you’re installing on your main drive (usually C:), try using a secondary storage drive, like an external SSD, for the installation.

5. Close “Killer Network Performance” (if applicable): If you have this software installed, open Task Manager, find “Killer Network Performance,” right-click it, and select “End task.” Then, retry the installation.

6. Check your network connection: Ensure you have a stable internet connection. If possible, connect via a wired ethernet cable instead of Wi-Fi for a more reliable connection.

7. Use a VPN: While not officially endorsed by the developers, using a VPN might help bypass network restrictions that could be causing the issue. Use this option with caution, as free VPNs can be unreliable and have security risks.
