  1. Volker, Thanks for your response, but I think I have issues here. First of all I do not have FSX installed. Only FSX-SE and Prepar3D. I find I have no trouble compiling and saving flightplans for use with FSX-SE. These can be loaded directly into the PMDG aircraft as company routes. From your e-mail reply, I gather this should not be possible ?? From the FSC Window |Options > Display page I have the option of choosing data for FSX or Prepar3D and the FSX button is always checked. If choosing Prepar3D, the program closes and on restarting, the FSX button is again checked. Looking at my FSC file structure I have only a simgle fsc.exe file, not fsc.exe 1 or fsc.exe 2 yet I have installed the FSC version for FSX and P3D. What is wrong ?? I used to have FSX installed prior to FSX-SE and perhaps this is the root cause. Ron
  2. Sascha / Volker, Please forgive this request If I have missed something in the FSC User Manual, but I cannot see any reference as to how to save flight plans for both PMDG aircraft in FSX and P3D. After downloading and installing version 9.6 of FlightSim Commander for both simulators, the PMDG checkbox is shown, and I would have thought this would be for applicable for both FSX-SE and P3D when checked. Plans are saved for the FSX-SE versions of PMDG aircraft, but not those in P3D and I can see no option to add a path for P3D in the Flightplan Paths column of Save/Load Flightplan box. My fsc.ini file gives the following flightplan details. Do I need to manually add a path for P3D, and if so, could you advise where are the plans saved to ? [FLIGHTPLAN] SECLEN=50 SECWIDTH=30 FAFDIST=8.5 FPSEL=2129 FPPATH09= FPPATH10=C:\Users\Ron\Documents\ FPPATH11= FSCPLANPATH=C:\FSC\flightplan\FSC SQUAWKBOXPATH=C:\FSC\flightplan\SquawkBox IVAOPATH= IVAOPATH2= FSINNPATH=C:\FSC\flightplan\FSInn RADCONPATH=C:\FSC\flightplan\RC PROMAGPATH=C:\FSC\flightplan\PM XPLANEPATH=C:\FSC\flightplan\XPlane GEARTHPATH= TSPATH=C:\ ASAXE1PATH=C:\FSC\flightplan\AXE FSGRWPATH= Your help would be appreciated as otherwise all waypoints have to be added through the P3D CDU manually.

  3. Pete, Have started using FSX-SE and am experiencing the terrain.dll crashes quite regularly. Read your post and got the log details as you rrequested. Faulting application name: fsx.exe, version: 10.0.62608.0, time stamp: 0x54abe5b4 Faulting module name: terrain.dll, version: 10.0.62608.0, time stamp: 0x54abe5e1 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0005875c Faulting process id: 0x1994 Hope t his helps. If I can't get a workaround for this, I'm afraid it's back to FSX - or on to P3D. Ron
  4. Ian / Volker Many thanks. Things are now clearer for me. Most of the airport changes I'm aware of are in Africa, but I have no doubt there are others elsewhere. I'll have a search for the appropriate AFCAD files and take things from there. Ron
  5. Volker, Just a thought, but if FS Commander gets its airport informatiion from FSX, then it is FSX that needs to be updated. There is no option to do this from Navigraph or indeed from anywhere else as far as I know, therefore FSC can never be updated. If the above is correct, exactly what does each Airac cycle do within FS Commander ? Ron
  6. Volker, I fly quite a bit round Africa and am constantly having a problem with changing airport ICAOs. To give a couple of examples, Johannesburg recently changed the ICAO from FAJS to FAOR and the old Durban airport FADN is now disused and has been replaced with King Shaka, FALE. I currently use the Navigraph Airac cycle system, and have cycle 1412 Rev 2 installed for both FSC and PMDG. I notice that the PMDG database uses the recent ICAO changes, but my FS Commander ( version 9.5.1 ) doesn't appear to. If I run the FSC Database Manager, this gets information from FSX, which is quite a few years old now and FS Commander therefore still shows FAJS and FADN. Is there something I'm not doing but should be doing to have FSC show the current ICAO changes. Many thanks Ron Running FSX Gold and FSUIPC v 4.9 registered FSC v9.5.1 build 4th May 2014.

  7. Volker, I recently had computer problems requiring a complete new hard disc. All of my information files could be saved, and I transferred these, including flight plans to a thumb drive before installing the new disc. On reinstalling FS Commander and transferring those plans to the new program, they do not show up in the flight plan list, even though they are in the FS Commander Fightplan directory.and have the .pln extrnsion. Is there something that needs to be done to make the plans visible in the new FS Commander program. There are so many, it would take me weeks to recreate them all. Thanks Ron Running FSX Gold and FSUIPC v 4.9 registered FSC v9.5.1 build 4th May 2014 Downloaded Navigraph Airac cycle 1411 Windows 7 / 64 bit
  8. Volker, Does this include Quality Wings a/c as well ? I'm goint to remove and re-install FSC and see how it goes. Rene
  9. Volker, Yes. Everything was done in line with your user manual. When a plan is saved and the relevant add-on aircraft boxes are checked, does the program automatically save the plan(s) in the aircraft directories, or do the directory paths have to be individually entered manually ? Rene
  10. Volker, I read the documents and complied with the instructions. FSC was installed as administrator The installation was installed for all users. Rene McCOnnell
  11. Volker, I would appreciate your help is setting up the flight plan paths in FSC 9.5 as I seem to be getting nowhere. I’m having difficulty with saving flight plans and in setting the plan paths in the ‘Save As’ option. I would like to save plans for PMDG, Quality Wings and Level D aircraft, but path options for these aren’t specified. I have plan save options are available for: FS Commander Path set to D:\FS Commander\Flightplan Flight Simulator X Path set to D:\FSX FSX Flight Plans Path set to C:\Users\owner\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files Squawk Box Not used IVAO Not used Radar Contact Not used FS Inn Not used Project Magenta Not used X Plane Not used Airbus X Not used Nothing for PMDG, Quality Wings or Level D, even though there are check boxes for these on the Flight Plan “Save’ option, and I do not appear able to add paths manually. Also, when saving an FSC plan, I get the error message ‘Error in writing FS 10 plan’. I see from a previous forum question on this that the ‘fsc.ini’ file must include : FPPATH10= c:\users\owner\documents\Flight Simulator X files My FPPATH10 is exactly as above, however the actual computer file tree in Windows 7 is : C:\users\owner\ My Documents\Flight Simulator X files Is the difference of ‘Documents’ and ‘My Documents’ causing the problem ? I’m using the PMDG 777-200, and the PMDG plans are in D:\FSX\PMDG\FLIGHTPLANS However there is a sub directory to this named ‘777’. Which is correct directory to use ? I have been a long time user of FS Commander, but I have to say this version is driving me up the wall !! I hope you can help me sort this out. Rene McConnell
  12. Volker Thanks for that. What I needed was how to register, but I see that option is available i the "About" menu option. Rene
  13. Volker I have just purchased version 9.5 from Simmarket, but can see no reference anywhere to the program download. I therefore assume I have to download the fsc95.zip from your web site. This however is only a trial file with a 30 minute lifecycle. How do I access the permanent FSC9.5 file so I can insert the registration key. Rene McConnell
  14. SUICIDE POSTPONED !! Did a quick search of the internet for a possible solution and found this. Right click the desktop icon, select Properties. Under "Compatibility" select "Always run this program as Administrator" Apply and save in the usual way. Obviously, for some reason, even although the program was installed under "Run as Administrator" the program start icon needed this action as well. I've saved a couple of plans and indeed they have been saved under my PMDG folder. Hallelugah !! Many, many thanks guys for all your help and suggestions. Ron
  15. Guys, Latest update. Removed FS Commander. Back to SimMarket and to check my registration details. Downloaded FSC921.zip again from your website. Extracted the files. This time I had the option of installing as "Run as Administrator" which I selected. Installed the program directly under C:\ Completed registration. Correctly pathed my FSX installation when I received the error message. Made a short flightplan and making sure the PMDG box was ticked - (it was already ticked) - saved the plan. Opened the PMDG flightplan folder in FSX to check the contents. No plan saved. Made another account in Control Panel, giving Administrator privilidges. Rebooted under this user account. Right clicked the FSC start program icon on my desktop. Options window gives :- Open Troubleshoot compatability Scan for viruses Move to quarantine Safe run Check reputation in KSN Open file location Pin to taskbar Pin to start menu Restore previous version Send to Cut Copy Create shortcut Delete Rename Properties and that's it. Right clicking the program run file under my account gives the same options. No Run as Administrator. I'm just about to commit suicide. Ron
