So I loaded 1.5. Ran it. When it started to load with the blue line in the cabinet, the line ticked over one millimeter and then crashed to the desktop. Multiple tries, multiple wipes and reloads. Ideas?

Hello,
Which version of the game do you have (CD, GoG or Steam)?

Which shortcut do you use to run the game?
Does the crash if you directly run XWingAlliance.exe?

Blue line in the cabinet?????? Sorry but do you actually mean the loading bar, I've never heard of your term before

Couple of questions

1. What's your operating system?
2. Do you have you UAC turned off (UAC = User Account Control)? Up to you but I would turn it off it's a pain in the a$$
3. Do you get any error message from the XWAUCPv1.5 installer?
4. Is your XWA folder set to Read only or any of it's files within. (Steam XWA Dir = C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars X-Wing Alliance)

1. JeremyaFr, I've used both the game launcher and the quickstart launcher.
2. Darksaber, loading bar. Sorry for the brain biscuit. Win 10. Where do I find the UAC? No. No.

If it's the same as Win7 Control Panel, User Accounts, Change User Control Settings

If it's not here sorry, but search google

So have you installed the XWAUCPv1.5.exe or not, this is a little unclear to me, sorry but I know little about Win10, both the XWAUCP and DSUCP I make but I can not test on Win10, but people do have it running fine, it's just finding out why the XWAUCP is not running for you, could it be you have a corrupt download (thinking about that the installer wouldn't run at all) but saying that have you tried redownloading the XWAUCPv1.5.exe again?

Does it crash when you load a Skirmish mission? Or does it crash when loading a Tour mission or both?

Hello,
Make sure you have the latest ddraw.dll and all the latest hooks installed.
