  1. Sometimes although one specifies to have the windows in the front the navigation hides behind FSC main window. I have no idea why? Claude
  2. Hi Guys, It took some time and research but following multiple exchanges with Volker I've found the reason for the malfunction of FSC versus FSX. In fact using now FSX under Windows 10 professionnal, FSC database manager should use a different path to find the file scenery.cfg active in fsx. If one uses the path : C:...\user\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Fsx the scenery.cfg in that directory is no more active. I found mine dating back to November 2017 and obviously all the changes I had made during that period to this day were not taken into account. The result was that in the Log file of the Support folder of FSC one could find numerous errors where the manager did not find either new addons or those which had been deleted and which were still present in the scenery.cfg inactive. Thx to Volker which showed me these inconsistencies I discovered that I was not using an updated scenery.cfg but could not understand why. Searching with google an explanation to this mystery, I found under the post "Scenery.cfg File Location" in https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum the answer and solution to my problem.You can read this under one of the participants posts: "....If under Windows-10 you cannot find the "active" FSX scenery.Cfg file in:C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX...or inC:\Users\[user account or profile name]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\ sub-folder...it is possible that you installed FSX when logged into Windows under a different [user account or profile name]than you presently are using and/or you installed FSX for only the (then different) [user account or profile name].Most of us will find the "active" FSX scenery.Cfg file in:C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX...."...because we install for "All users" under Windows rather than for ONLY a (current) [user account or profile name]. We must not forget the strict conditions paused by FSC: Installation of FSX as well as FSC for ALL USERS and the installation made for all programs under Administrator rights whether you are the administrator or not. So in the case of being under Windows 10 and following the above conditions, the path to declare to find scenery.cfg active is : C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX The database manager will find the right file with the different updates the user has made and create the proper database to be used by FSC. Parking gates, taxiways will be in their right place as used to be with Windows 7. Thx again to Volker Heine and his help. Have a nice evening Claude
  3. Good morning, I forward this question because since I've upgraded to FSC's last build of June 2019, I have multiple errors in the way airports map look just as if I did not first created/updated the database with the database manager first prior using the software and FSX. Here is an example with the map of Naples Capodichino in Italy. My 737 is parked at Gate 14. It appears perfectly correct in Airport Design Editor; In FSC the parking gates are either missing or wrongly positioned. In fact I suppose they correspond to the original bgl of FSX which is APX51170.bgl in the scenery main folder containing in region 0602. All the parking gates which exist in the scenery under LIRN in ADE are missing in FSC. I have also checked that my LIRN scenery was declared and loaded in the scenery library. When I used Version 10 or prior I had not that problem at all. I have not change FSX configuration nor reinstalled it. I have used under Windows 10 with FSC 9 or 10.0. Where could be the problem which occurs with many airports around the world. Thx in advance Claude
  4. Good morning I have installed FSC 10.6 and the old VHHX airport although loaded (I have installed the fly tampa addon of VHHX in parallel with the new Hong Kong airport) doesn't show in FSC the parkings and taxiways. Before this upgrade to FSC 10.6 they were present on the map. Is there a way to get back in FSC 10.6 the full original airport.? Thx, Claude
  5. Good morning, A/ Who said Mr. Heine didn't try to solve problems? Not I in the least, B/ I made suggestions to enable the ending to the problem encountered which obviously I was not the only one to face. For instance the installation programs of FLIGTH1 (i.e. Gex for example) by default put the software in the root of the C: drive. That could be done with FSC and would prevent the problem posted by Volker here and in the long paper posted in his pdf file. C/ May I remind you this French say in the famous play "The marriage of Figaro" adapted to the opera by Mozart: "Without the liberty to blame or criticize there are no flattering praise"; I will add a second one : "Never put your finger between the tree and the bark". If Volker has complaints against me, he's a big boy and can do those directly to me without your assistance. D/ May I remind you Volker's comment in his post which link you have above, one should sign his messages and also a "...A little "Hi" or "Hi Sascha* / Volker" orsomething like that might not be to time-consuming for the sender...." Topic closed and solved as far as I'm concerned. Thanks Volker for your help. Claude
  6. Volker, I have read the different txt and other manuals as I always do for anything I buy. It happens that the version prior to 9.7 which I had was not concerned by Win10 which did not exist at that time so what was said for VISTA did not concern me for the upgrade and moreover the characters used in the installation programs are so small that one can very easily miss the point. The use of Capitals for such important message should be mandatory in the installation program. As for the Administrator installation part, I always do so and even execute FSX as an administrator and have not restricted to only me the use of the program. It seems to me that the flaw here is that obviously the installation program doesn't completely look at the registries to establish the paths needed. In the same way one can't ask a user to have a separate drive or disk for each program he uses although disks' costs are much cheaper today than they used to be in the past. Moreover to have too many disks would result in a huge problem when security backup are concerned. I will change FSC from Program files XXX to follow what has been news for me under Win10 but it's out of question that I should reinstall FSX and all my addons freeware and payware considering the most stupid addon manager ever built in FSX. Thanks Claude
  7. Last minute info: I've just added a new addon and updated the database and the program works again with no error message! This is something curious the least one can say.... Claude
  8. Good morning, We have a situation here; I did what you suggested and find the Support subfolder empty as you can check with the attached screen capture.....It remains so even after I type "ok" in the error message and leave the program. Best Claude
  9. Hi again, Perhaps if you had read carefully my question you would have noticed that I gave you 3 answers out of the 8 so nicely put to your dear customers ! So to make it clear for you: 1. FS X, FS2004(FS9) or Prepar3D (Version) ---------------------------------------------------> FSX acceleration sp2 2. FSUIPC* / WideFS which version used ("latest version" is not sufficient)-----------------> Version 4.971; I don't use WideFS 3. I use the FSC in a network!---------------------------------------------------------------------> NO 4. FS Commander and Database Manager-------------------------------------------------------> Version 9.7 Built 2017/08/21 5. Which provider and period of the AIRAC Cycle------------------------------------------------> NA 6. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------> Downloaded version bought at Simmarket and updated regularly since version 8.3 acquired in 2008. 7. Operating System (Windows 7/8/10 32/64, Vista 32/64, XP, 2000) -------------------------> Windows 10 64bits, Intel processor i5 760à2.8GHz 16Go Ram Graphic card Asus HD 7950Direct CUII TOP 3Gb Memory 8. How many monitors are used:--------------------------------------------------------------------> 2 monitors: one 1920x1080 ; the second 1360x768 (FSC is positioned on this screen I suggest that a special page totally independent of the forum be dedicated to the support of your software as this is done with all software providers I've been using for the last 20 years. A form would be presented to your customer to fill and that would prevent you from asking them to go to the link you suggest to read; the page would be declared in the menus of your website under the title : support. The forum should be restricted to discussions on different topics not related to any kind of malfunction of the software. Sorry to be so straightforward but honestly I'm not used to get such rather uncourteous replies, I'm not a child and consider that at 76 could be treated in an other way.. You may think that I'm very touchy, that's the way I've been educated. Best Claude ROZSA Paris-France
  10. Hi Volker, I have the same error as said above; I tried to go to the link you mention here but it is no more accessible. What should I do? I'm with the latest update of FSC with FSX running under Windows 10 pro. The error happened suddenly without reason while updating the database. FSX on the other hand runs perfectly well and I suppose if there was an error in the scenery.cfg file it would corrupt FSX and prevent it from running. Best Claude
  11. Good morning, While selecting an aircraft (B747-400 default, Lufthansa livery) I got the following error: 1/It refused my choice 2/as you may see on the picture it stated that the actual choice at the opening of the menu was an MD11 when if fact it is by default an Airbus A300 with also above the Mention of an MD11 3/ When the error occurs you cant closed the error small screen and have to completely leave FSC by ending the task with the task manager. Perhaps it could be a good idea to look into this. Regards PS: I'm under windows 10 Pro, 2.8GHz and 4 cores, 126Gb ram, with a graphic card Asus HD 7950 3Gb ram Claude ROZSA
  12. Even if my actual version 9.5 build of 4th of January 2014 ? I'm told by Simmarket that my actual license will be valid. Is it right? Claude
  13. Volker I tried to find the vers 9.6 rev 9 with the link you gave but there seem to be a serious problem on your site as can be seen by the attached picture; all the other sites i visit have a perfect presentation. So it is impossible to find the link searched for. I made my different upgrades thru simarket who directed me to your site for the upgrade to version 9.7. all this is confusing and is a huge loss of time. I can't say I appreciate....
  14. No because I never had to use this feature up to now and have no idea it could be related to this problem... Thanks anyhow for your kind reply... Regards Claude
