STB V3.5 Update for FSX and FSX-SE Now Available

Recommended Posts

I decided to go ahead and update STB for FSX along the same lines as some recent updates to STB for Prepar3D.  In particular, there's some improved support for Ultimate Traffic Live (UTLive) though not as complete as the incumbent support for UT2, an important fix to the way STB interacts with the FSX scenery library and also various framework enhancements. 

I'm glad to say I'm finally able to move away from the clickteam installer for updates, which was a great tool in it's day but was become more and more of a challenge to deliver updates through in a simple fashion.  Going forward, any further updates will come through Inno Setup which is much more an InstallShield like experience.

A side effect of the switch to Inno is your current installation cannot be updated.  Instead it must be completely uninstalled, then V3.5.0.2 installed in its place.  Sorry for the extra pain, but it will be worth it in the long run.  To obtain V3.5.0.2 please contact me in the short term, and in the longer term it will be available for download in the shops.

Summary of Changes in STB V3.5.0.2 (Omega):
⦁    Added limited support for UTLive: Ability to select logos, airlines and aircraft definitions for UTLive (shared option with UT2);
⦁    Flight Plan Complier Bug fix.  Don't append "Scenery" to a scenery library path if it already ends with "scenery";  
⦁    During remote client wizard experience, open a local PDF with instructions rather than a web page.
⦁    Improved exception handling;
⦁    Improved sort order (by arrival/departure time) for incomplete flights generated by an external scheduling engine (e.g. AirHauler, UTLive, etc.);
⦁    Software refactored and rebuilt with Visual Studio 2015
⦁    Inno Setup Framework for all installers

Thank you very much!

What information do you need from us to obtain the new installer?

Is shop name and order number enough or do you need more?

Yes, just send me the order number and shop name, or invoice/receipt/confirmation email and I'll take care of the rest.  Don't post it here, either email or PM me!
