FSC, PMDG J41 and Windows 7

Recommended Posts

FSX Version: 9.1

FSUIPC Version: 4.00 with latest update

FSC Version: 8.5

Download from Simmarket

OS: Windows 7 x64

Hi Everyone,

I have been trying to find a solution to why non of my flightplans show up on the PMDG J41 FMS. I have followed the instructions and installed FSC as administrator, but non of the files are showing up.

After searching for my files, I found them in C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Level-D Simulations\navdata\Flightplans and not in it right folder Flight Sim x/PMDG/Flightplans. Even after copying the files to the PMDG Flightplan folder, they still do not show up. Only 8 flight plans (default plans) show up and non of the one I copied to the PMDG Flight plan folder.

Any help would be great.

Hello Gihan,

are you sure you flightplan was saved for PMDG? Please make sure Level-d is disabled and PMDG is enabled (See Attachement).

Best Regard

Eric

Hi Volker and Eric,

On Windows XP and I think Vista, the files go to the correct folders but the exception is Windows 7, where the Level D and PMDG Flight Plans are saved in

C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\PMDG\FLIGHTPLANS. I tried various options but it always copies it there. When I copy the RTE files for Level D and PMDG in its respectable locations, then the FMS reads them well. I just have to remember to copy or move the files once I create the flight plan using FSC.

If the software can be updated to save it to the correct location if Windows 7 is installed that will be great.

Thank you once again Eric for the reply.

Hi Gihan,

We cannot quite understand, why you have the following path:

C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Level-D Simulations\navdata\Flightplans

What puzzles us, is the path: C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\.

We have installed 2 Systems working with Windows 7 and where FSX is installed and the path in both is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\

WE have also installed on both systems (windows 7) FSCommander and see the following path: C:\Program Files (x86)\FSC\

In BOTH cases the saving of the flightplans is correct.

Our strongly recommend all users to install FSX and FSCommander on another Drive. i.E. : D:\FSX and D:\FSC

A question to all users: does anyone know the reason, why FSX would be

installed under the following path: :\Users\User\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\ ???

Hello Volker,

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question.

These are the folder in my PC.

First of all, FSX was installed in the path C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\

FSC was installed in the path C:\Program Files (x86)\FSC\

And all files such as RTE for Level D and PMDG was saved in this path C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Level-D Simulations\navdata\Flightplans by default by when I saved my flightsplans. The PLN files were saved in this folder C:\Users\User\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files and other files were saved in the path C:\Program Files (x86)\FSC\.

I must stay that the version I have installed on the Game PC is Windows 7 Enterprise x64. I wonder if this has anything to do with the folder locations FSC is trying to save the RTE files?

This is a very interesting article I came across while searching for Windows 7 and Virtual Store folder.

Even though it was the Vista version they were talking about, this is repeating in Windows 7 as well. The first time I installed FSC, I did not follow your recommendation, since it was Windows 7, to install with the option Run as Administrator, then after this I removed it and then ran it as Administrator.
