Problem Running Makerwys.exe

Recommended Posts

Using version 4.41 and then 4.43 the same message:

Failed to make RunwaysCSV Files

Failed to make FStarRC RWS File

These messages are at the conclusion of the normal process of reading Airports, etc.

I do not use the FStar RC program (at least I believe I do not :smile: )

This is occurring while running makerwys.exe from one PC to another using my home network.

This is the process required by the FSPS program "Flight Simulator Manager" or I certainly would not be doing it this way.

Is there some way to correct it or is the goof tied to the FSPS procedure?

Thanks for help

MakeRwys.exe must be placed in the FS root folder AND run from there on the PC containing FS. It won't work any other way as it finds the sceneries via the files stored on that PC and pointed to by the Registry on that PC.

Thank you Pete. I was expecting something like this to be the case. There are several of us who have tried numerous combinations and permutations trying to get this portion of that program to work (naturally it's the main reason we bought the thing). Using WideFS, it provides lots of info/controls that FSUIPC already manages ok.. The "missing" part is to provide Complete airport info on the fly.

After a series of 19 emails with their support, and still no clear directions re. installing, I have surrendered and am writing the program off until someone figures it out.

Why not simply run MakeRwys correctly, then copy the files it generates from the FS root folder, to wherever that program wants them?

Nah....Your way is too logical. THEIR way requires FSX to be on both PC, and the makerunwys portion of installation is a 4-step process. The steps are unknown ;) and one may proceed only if the previous step was/is done correctly.

Good News However. I finally got the %$^&%$# thing done! Went to main PC as you indicated but ran makernwys.exe with the network active and FSX directory addressed from main FSX PC. Steps 3 and 4 (whatever they are) then concluded successfully.
