But how do I get to see the "Airfields Pack" to plop it into FSX. When I hit the .exe file it extracts all but I don't get the pack, just the message about the registry.?Ian Warren wrote:Pat , Just plop the "Airfields pack" into the P3D 'addon scenery' folder and activated it as a scenery area ... you should be cooking from there.
FSX-se is a clean install on my "E" drive. I had FSX Gold on my "C" drive but I completely removed that with no trace left. Have these programs been used successfully, otherwise I won't play around with them and just go with other scenery.toprob wrote:The installer doesn't specifically support Steam, except for 'clean' installs of FSX-se, without any previous FSX installed. So you will need to either get a migration tool (Estonia Migration) or the Flight1 Registry Fix to point the FSX registry to FSX-se.
I am willing to be advised where everything goes. Perhaps you could explain in a little more detail.?Ian Warren wrote:You don't need a a migration tool (Estonia Migration), if understand were everything go's .. its a wham bamm thankyou mamm .
I need all the help I can get. I just want to get these programs installed with the least amount of hair-pulling.!!toprob wrote:However for auto-installers, you will need some sort of tool if the installer doesn't support your sim, there is no manual install available.
If you want any help or more information on how to do this, let me know.
Has this worked for others with this problem.? If it doesn't work can it cause other Registry problems.?toprob wrote:Easiest step if it works --go hereand download the FSX Registry Fix tool.
Run it, click on Repair FSX Registry Path, navigate to where your FSX-se fsx.exe is, and select it.
This should create a FSX registry entry which fools installers into directing to FSX-se.
Give it a try. If it doesn't work, let me know.
Don't worry about it. I will give it a miss, as not prepared to upset the Registry. It's not that important. It looks as though I will have problems with other addon scenery, so am wondering if I should just scrub Steam and go back to FSX Gold. Decisions, Decisions.!!toprob wrote: Of course it could scramble your registry and brick your PC, but hey, YOLO!
I don't recall what the difference was between the Airfields installer and Real NZ installers, so I can't explain why it wouldn't work the same. I can check, but it won't be this week, I'm flat-out putting the finishing touches to Dunedin, and I'd need to go through some old archive drives to find the scripts.
They are the RealNZ Wellington, Marlborough and Paraparaumu. So I guess that will be the answer.toprob wrote:I've just had a thought -- what Real NZ scenery? New ones have multi-installers which recognise a FSX-se-specific install, but the old freeware doesn't, these scripts were written long before Dovetail Games was just a bump on the backside of an embryo dove...
It wasn't freeware, but I guess it is now. Thanks for your help and it sure would be nice if you can work out a solution.toprob wrote:No, none of the freeware has multi-installers, so it must be something else -- I'm think on it for a bit.
Unable to find FSX install path in System Registry. The installer is not able to proceed with the installation. Please refer to the installation manual.
