Postby bandsman » Sun Oct 16, 2011 9:02 am

I have a comp [6gigs ram, 1 TB mem] Fsx, acceleration, vlc101, all city addons are installed. on booting up, a note says "problems with invalid
scenery pathin scenery areas 107, 122, 130 - click to continue".which I do.
when loaded, Auckland airport has no buildings,Sky tower is non existent, and Omaka and Woodburne airports are just are are just a blue[flt sim] colour. Most of these were a problem before the city packages were installed. Can anyone assist in simple spesk to rectify please?
The bonus strike master is a beaut by the way. cheers!!

Quick check , remove your Woodburne scenery from your list within FS and reinstall , this would the quickest way to find any serious error , currently only three scenery,s playing up , one other question was did you have the RealNZ Supercity or is missing default items .

Hi, can anyone help me. I love fsx and just got the pmdg 737 and a whole heap of orbx scenery. My problem is that Im not good with the pc side of things have tried to install my orbx scenery but it won't work. Is there anyone out there who I can get to install my addons and help fix my bugs in fsx, so that I can fall back in love with flyin again?

Hi Lindsey, Welcome to NZFF.
With the ORBX scenery, it is very simple, You would have a invoice with your specific details.

On installing you have three required details to put into activation box

1 - Order Number
2 - Order Date
3 - Registration Key
You can either copy and paste or type into the required box's.

Then will sit for a little while as it expands then it will search the directory for your FSX and will start installing.

My orbx installation troubles are usually because I forget to update the library, latest is Version 150331

Do you get any error messages when trying to install? If so what are they?

Hi, no error message. I'm just updating my libries to 150331. But it is asking me to insert disk #2, or browse button to find the path? Where is the path that Im wanting it to go down?
Thanks

It's been a while and I usually forget how I did something, but I think that's the path to where you downloaded FTXORBXLIBS_150331.exe

A good idea is do a screen shot describing the errors and step by step follow thru , may give some insight to the problem and solution.

Hi, When i run the orbx installer, I download the latest libriares.
Then when I keep running the orbx installer, then it comes up with
this - Please insert disk #2. If the file on this disk can be found in
another location, for example, on another drive, enter the full path or click the browse button to select the path
Ive also tried putting disk 2 from fsx in with no luck.

You must extract the files from the zip file before trying to install the Orbx products. Right click on thezip file and select extract all, then click on the install in the extracted files folder.
