Multiple entries for ENGT (solved)

Recommended Posts

I updated UK2000 Xtreme Newcastle (EGNT) from UK2000 scenery support. I ran the FSC9 database - without any problems - and when I input EGNT and searched by ICAO I found three entries for Newcastle (EGNT).  I could not save a flight plan EGNT to LHBP, message,  'No flight plan can be saved for airports without runways (ENGT)'.

 

I also updated Manchester (EGCC) with the same problem appearing.

I am now getting multiple duplications of airports e.g. EGNT gives 3 Newcastle (EGNT),  EDDM gives 3 Munich (EDDM), EGCC gives 2 entries Manchester (EGCC), this is very frustrating and making the package un-useable.

FSUIPC (not registered) V.4.938

Aerosoft Flightsim Commander (Boxed) v.9.2  Build 02-May-2012, AIRAC 1407 Rev 1 JUN26-JUL26/14

Hallo Fred,

 

how many afd files are present? 3 for each airport?

 

If yes, how do you expect the scenery manager to find the correct file?

 

 

Have you read the manual chapter 2.1 updating airport files. Paragraph: Running the Database manager ......

 

I would do that, before stating that the programme is unusable!

 

Regards

 

Terence

Can you tell me where to find the afd, AF*.* files that are being referred to.

 

I have been using FSCommander successfully with my system for the last 18months without any problems.

 

It is only the last few days this problem has appeared since updating airports and running the database manager.  I have read the manual and as far as I can tell I am doing everything correctly.

 

Regards

Fred

Excellent support from Volker Heine. Volker suggested updating from v9.2 to v9.6. This was very easy to do and after installing AIRAC 1407 and running the Database manager the airports that were problematic were now showing just one entry as per normal.

Thanks again Volker
