  1. Nor did I. I uninstalled FSUIPC, moved the folder with the remaining files (licence, profiles) to the preferred location, then installed again. Yeah, that worked fine. Correct. True, but it's also a P3D add-on, and I like to keep my add-ons mostly localized in that folder where possible (unless they take up a lot of space, which FSUIPC does not). But this discussion is besides the main point of this thread, so I'll just lay this one to rest.
  2. OK, so I tested your installer now. I moved the "Users\snorr\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\FSUIPC6" folder to "Users\snorr\OneDrive\Dokumenter\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\FSUIPC6" and installed there. Then I uninstalled as per your instructions, and installed again. And it still points to "Users\snorr\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\FSUIPC6" by default. And mind you, the behavior you described above: This does not match with what I'm seeing. I had a clean install of Windows around Christmas, and only two weeks ago did I start downloading and installing P3D again, so according to the above state
  3. I'll give it a spin tonight, right now I'm busy for the next several hours.
  4. Here's the log from when I clean installed for the first time on this machine on March 16th: FSUIPC6 Installer v1.2.6 for v6.0.13 Running in folder '\\10.0.42.2\stored\P3D' Determining installation details... FSUIPC5 SetupPath: HKCU entry: HKLM entry: Returning Modules location: Documents folder location for add-on: C:\Users\snorr\OneDrive\Dokumenter P3Dv5: P3Dv5Installed=1, InstallType=None, OriginalInstallDir=, FSUIPCInstalledv5=, DLLFile=, XmlAddonFile=, InstallDocumentsLocation=C:\Users\snorr\OneDrive\Dokumenter\FSUIPC6 Default installation directory is now 'C:\Users\snorr\
  5. Here's the result. The path is correct (\Users\[username]\OneDrive\Dokumenter - I forgot to account for the OneDrive folder-level). There's also a key at the top that should be informative: "!Do not use this registry key - REG_SZ - Use the SHGetFolderPath or SHGetKnownFolderPath function instead"
  6. The situation: I'm not a native English speaker, so I have a Windows install that isn't English. As a result, the path to my Documents-folder isn't \Users\[username]\Documents, but \Users\[username]\Dokumenter. This means that FSUIPC creates a completely unnecessary folder under my home-folder, and stores most of it's files there (except the add-on.xml file). The solution: If FSUIPC would stop using hard-coded paths, and use the .net function for obtaining the path to special folders (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/microsoft.visualbasic.fileio.specialdirectories.mydocuments?v
  7. @rameus, right-click the game in the left-side games-list and select Properties. Select the "LOCAL FILES" tab and click on the "VERIFY INTEGRITY OF LOCAL FILES" button. If anything is wrong, that will re-download whatever needs updating.
