Trying to Run Demo before buying

Hi guys

I have been trying to run the demo for the last couple of hours but have not been able to get far.

I have installed FSX in a folder c:\Flight Simulator X and installed Comander in c:\FSC9 on my win7 machine

When I run FSCDbManager I get the message telling me that the path is invalid.

The path on the left is currently pointing to c:\FSC9.

I change the path in the left box to c:\Flight Simulator X but I still get a message on the right saying I need to select FS path in left drive

The right box is disabled and also looking at c:\FSC9

I have read the manual on how to install for FSX and scoured the Net for help but not found a solution to this.

If anyone knows what I am doing wrong I would be grateful.

Roy

Hi Roy,

crucial for the proper installation and function under Win7 is read this file: ReadMe_before_Install_Win 7.txt.

Read also our announcement http://forum.simflight.com/topic/66198-vista-and-windows-7-users-please-read/ .

If these recommendations are followed, then you will also, like many other users, have your fun with the FSCommander.

Regards,

Volker

Hi Roy,

in your case, send the file scenery.cfg to my e-mail address.

You can find these adress at the bottom of our homepage.

Note that you can't find this file in the folder of the FSX but in most cases on this place:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\scenery.cfg.

Make a screenshot of the situation by the databasemanager just before you press the button

"Update Airports from FSX" and publish them with your next post.

Regards,

Volker

Something I noted.........

when i try to run fsc.exe it tells me that the databases for flightsim 2004 are missing. I have only ever had fsx on this machine.

If I change fsc.ini where it says FSX=0 changing to FSX=1 then it tells me that it cannot find the databases for flight sim x which is better

The databasemanager error occours when I have either FSX=0 or FSX=1

Secondly, in the scenery.cfg file the first 3 lines are

[General]

Title=FS9 World Scenery

Description=FS9 Scenery Data

Again I have never had flightsim 2004 on this machine so I am not sure why it is not FS10 scenery data

I have emailed 2 screenshots to you as I don't have a web based storage areas setup

Cheers

Roy
