My own confusion with updated AIRAC information in FSCommander 9.6 (solved by user)


Recommended Posts

It is obviously my own mistake but here is what is happening with updating AIRAC cycle for FSC version 9.6 Build 16-February-2015 in Windows 10 operating with FSX steam:


After updating AIRAC 1601 the FSC opening screen still shows an old AIRAC 1512 as the last cycle.


Following dozens of attempts I now find that the Database/NavData-Backup/AIRAC.ini files within FSC shows the new cycle 1601 as installed - but it just will not show as such in the opening screen.


Because I have many FSC flight plans have not attempted to repair or reinstall it afraid of losing such plans.


At the moment and limited to my lack of knowledge I am assuming:


a - FSC will not properly function with Windows 10 or Steam FSC;

b - Although the opening screen shows the old AIRAC nomenclature, actually the updated data is in place.

c - I am not savvy enough to face up to this and should just keep it as is - except for this minute detail everything is working properly.

d - I should learn how to repair/reinstall FSC without losing current essential working data.


Sorry if the attempted explanation is confusing - it just reveals where I stand as far as computer knowledge is concerned.


Thaks for any assistance or information.

Thanks a lot, Volker.


After a few days without internet (heavy flooding in Rio de Janeiro) I need to inform that "my problem" is solved.


A technician was here and found out that I have duplicate installations, one in the root of a disk and another in a sub-directory.


Airac update was being done in the root and here I was trying to find another application in another location with this update!


I have so many HD and SDD addon disks that it became very confusing at this end.  Have started a simplification project.


Guess you've never had such a type of report regarding the fabulout FSC program in your record.  Maybe it will make the Guiness Book World of Records....


Thanks again.
