  1. Thanks a lot for the answers. Two items to add: 1. Will promptly submit, after the frustrating search in the manual, my application as a VERY Senior Citizen member. 2. Just learned that my profile here is wrong, giving me much less age than my actual 89 years of age. It seems that flightsimming helps with longevity. Thanks again
  2. I believe I read in the manual that the aircraft icon (the aircraft itself) shown on the map can be used to move the aircraft from one spot to another. Did not make a note, have read and reread the manual and cant find this information. Could someone help? Thanks a lot. Clarindo
  3. Thanks a lot, Volker. After a few days without internet (heavy flooding in Rio de Janeiro) I need to inform that "my problem" is solved. A technician was here and found out that I have duplicate installations, one in the root of a disk and another in a sub-directory. Airac update was being done in the root and here I was trying to find another application in another location with this update! I have so many HD and SDD addon disks that it became very confusing at this end. Have started a simplification project. Guess you've never had such a type of report regarding the fabulout FSC program in your record. Maybe it will make the Guiness Book World of Records.... Thanks again.
  4. It is obviously my own mistake but here is what is happening with updating AIRAC cycle for FSC version 9.6 Build 16-February-2015 in Windows 10 operating with FSX steam: After updating AIRAC 1601 the FSC opening screen still shows an old AIRAC 1512 as the last cycle. Following dozens of attempts I now find that the Database/NavData-Backup/AIRAC.ini files within FSC shows the new cycle 1601 as installed - but it just will not show as such in the opening screen. Because I have many FSC flight plans have not attempted to repair or reinstall it afraid of losing such plans. At the moment and limited to my lack of knowledge I am assuming: a - FSC will not properly function with Windows 10 or Steam FSC; b - Although the opening screen shows the old AIRAC nomenclature, actually the updated data is in place. c - I am not savvy enough to face up to this and should just keep it as is - except for this minute detail everything is working properly. d - I should learn how to repair/reinstall FSC without losing current essential working data. Sorry if the attempted explanation is confusing - it just reveals where I stand as far as computer knowledge is concerned. Thaks for any assistance or information.
  5. I am no computer expert and I am addicted to FSCommanderl\! I also use Airport Development Editor (ADE 1.67) mostly to add ILS to existing FSX-SE airports. Have fought with the issue that some of the added ILS will not show on the FSC map, even though when the mouse arrow is on it it will read out the frequencies and that FSX-SE map will show that the added ILS is there. Have excluded (I believe) probable errors on my part as a good 40% of the additions work alright. Having noted more of this situation after upgrading to Windows 10 and FSX-SE and after reading these posts I guess I will just stop trying to resolve it and sit on it for the time being. Must state that I cannot visualize flight simulation without the use of this fantastic FSCommander.
  6. If it may be of help to anyone: I use FSC with a 3-monitor display now on Windows 10 and just recently replaced one of the monitors and a coincident result was the visual disappearance of the GPS window. It was there, active, but not showing. I tried monitor resolutions, hotkeys, not "on top" and everything else to no avail. Occured to me then to untick in Windows - Options - Display the box for remembering GPS window position. I thought it might be remembering a position which now just would not be available. It worked! And there it is now - back to normal. I immediately reticked it to remember the current position, which is what I need. Apologise if the information is useless to anyone else; just attempting to assist anyone in an equal situation I was facing. Best to all.
  7. Hi, Volker Thank you very much for your kind attempt to assist me. I do not have a dual installation of FSX and FSX-SE. Actually everytime I use FSX-SE I must download it from the Steam site, which is where I purchased the program. Furthermore with my limited "expertise" I dare not fool around with FSCommand configuration and data, since it is indispensable for my Flight Simulation activities. Yes, I confess being addicted to FSC. Thanks again and a Happy New Year.
  8. Must clarify that I am using FSX-SE (Steam) and having searched extensively through various forums I now understand that at the present moment FSC is not compatible with FSX Steam (if I understand it correctly). Because so many simmers are switching over to FSX SE (it took me quite a while to join this crowd) I will wait for a future opportunity to fully enjoy the outstanding values to be found in FSCommander. Sorry for the inaccurate petition for assistance. Clarindo
  9. I am using FSC v9.6 AIRAC1512 with FSX and Windows 10 OS. Having added ILS to some airports and updating with FSCDbManager I find that the added ILS will graphically not show. Have just "discovered" that the added ILS exists, as clicking on the dot on the airport runway a menu will display airport information including the corresponding ILS frequency. Anyone can inform on what I could attempt in my efforts to have these ILS to be graphically displayed? Will appreciate any guidance and wish you all a Happy 2016 and plenty of good flights. Clarindo
  10. This will probably have been covered in the available manual, support forum and other queries. I would just like to double check, if possible, that my configuration is correct in the fact that: a) I note in FSCommander Database Manager that the scenery paths are considered correct and the indication for Sceneries is C:\Program Data\Microsoft\FSX\....Facilities...Scenery...etc b)Yet not all my add-on sceneries reside not in that in folder; rather they are in Disk D. Should this be of concern? is my question. Appreciate any comment, please.
  11. My problem has been satisfactorily solved. I must emphasize the superb assistance which was provided by VolkerHeine in the process. Really outstanding!
  12. Thanks. Apologize for missing that essential information and will sit in hopeful wait. Best regards, Clarindo
  13. FSX DELUXE - FSUIPV v 4.939e - FSC 9.6 Build 15 January 2015 download - AIRAC 1511 - Windows 7 Am having problem with ILS for SBCT default FSX airport not showing in FSC, while showing in FSTramp (obviously meaning it exists in FSX). Failing many attempts to solve this problem (not considering reinstallation due to convenient, time-consuming and otherwise acceptable configurations) have already: Repeated updates of Database Manager - Eliminated all add-ons (so that only default airports would show) - Checked for accurate identification of location for FSX and FSC directories - and all other possibilities KNOWN TO ME. Obviously I have a bad configuration somewhere or preference priority of scenery and wonder if available assistance could help me out in solving this puzzle. Should furhter details be required please advise so that I may respond. Anticipate my great appreciation.
  14. Thank you very much for the assistance, Volker. Will proceed accordingly and will be extra careful in the future in reading and following up on so clearly stated instructions. Wish you the best.
