FS Commander9 missing info. on new airport

Recommended Posts

There is a new airport built in the city of Quito, Ecuador, South America SEQM that replaces de old one SEQU. It seems FS Commander9 is missing to provide this new information. FS Navigator has it but without Sids and Stars, iFly 737 and Level D 763 has it. I haven´t had the time to check other databases.


I have installed the new airport from http://freewarescenery.com/

I also have installed NavDataPro 1302.

I also ran FSC9 Database Manager.

The AFCAD containing all necessary airport information is missing.

I reviewed all AFCAD and they have all required info: rwy, terminals, ILS, lights, etc. This is not the problem.

FSC reads all airport information according to the scenery.cfg. But if a developer installs his scenery into the directory ".\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Scenery", which is against all rules, it also can not be found. Have seen this for example with some African sceneries.

I desagree, as I understand Freeware and some Payware sceneries are installed in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator X\Scenery. Why is this against the rules only for FSC? If this is the case there is something wrong with FSC. Only some sceneries seem to get installed in the directory indicated by FSC. This is not the problem.

I also patiently reviewed SCENARY: CFG and corrected all that could be giving problems. This is not the problem.

Why FSC has this problem and FSNAV has not?????

Buy the way, I also reviewed all of my installed Add-ons and founded some airports that were not recognize by FSC. They were mostly small airports that I installed for VFR flights.

Thank you for your interest!!!

Hi Marbasan,

do you use the FSC on the network?

If YES, then tell me something about your network configuration. Any information is helpful.

Do you run the Database Manager from the client?

Have you read this information http://forum.simflight.com/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=98768 and also traded for it?

Do you have read the manual chapter Updating airports for FS 2004 in a network? Have you acted on it?

Hi Volker,

1. I have my PC connected to a local Lan/d-link with other two computers installed by the TV Internet provider. I am not technically savvy and this is way over my head.

2. FSC is installed in: C:\Aerosoft\FSC9

3. The programs was installed by right-clicking and selecting "install or run

as administrator.

4. I have four separated partitions installed in my computer (someone else did it for me). The instructions call for “installing FSC under any drive/partition other than C:

In C: I have W7. FSX

In F: I have WXP. FS9

In D: I have W7

In E: I have W7

I am confused, if I install FSC in any other partition there will be no communication between partitions because only one partition work at a time.

5. “Suppress extension of known file” Done.

6. I don’t remember if when I installed FSX I Did it for “for all users”. But I will not reinstall FSX because that means to start from Cero and reload all softwares UFFF……..

What do you suggest? I must say that it is very complicated to install FSC correctly.

Thank you for your help. MARBASAN.

Findings and fixes as follow:

A glimpse of me in the LOG file of the Database Manager and the problem was


The settings you made in the library are wrong.

See here the incorrect entry in your scenery.cfg. :



Local=Addon Scenery\SEQM2013.1.1\SCENERY




In this case, notify the DBM following error message:

No folder or BGL file exist for Layer: 160



Compare my settings in the SCENERYCFG with your settings.



Local=Addon Scenery\SEQM2013.1.2.3




In my settings, the Database Manager will find immediately the SEQM airport.

00001 , 0132 , SEQM - New Mariscal Sucre

F:\FSX\ADDON SCENERY\SEQM2013.1.2.3\scenery\AF2_SEQM.bgl

There are only the following solution:

Run your FSX.


Choose Scenery Library.

Choose Scenery area SEQM2013.1.2.3.

Choose Button Delete Area.

Click OK.

Click Yes.
