IMPORTANT: MakeRunways and new Add-Ons structure

Recommended Posts

The same here. I use makerwys 4.862 and AddOnOrganizer 1_39_b06. In order to get the makerwys_scenery.cfg I have to place the exporter also in the p3dv4 folder. Otherwise I will not get a makerwys_scenery.cfg.

Sounds like a much later version than mine.  Is it still called "P3DV4AddonOranizer.exe"? If not, that explains it. I'll remove that option if so.

I didn't need a screenshot, I do tend to believe folks!

I can only think the registry entry is missing or changed, otherwise it makes no sense. if you wished, you could check Registry entry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AddonOrganizer_P3D_V4
               Install_Dir

and let me know. But either way I think I'll simplify things, removing that option and just using the Exporter.

have the following entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\AddonOrganizer_P3D_V4

Yes, that's the same thing. And the entry for "Install_Dir" there, that's correctly pointing to your P3D4AddonOrganizer installation?

Anyway, either way, I've released 4.863 now which doesn't even attempt to use that. I'm just curious as to whay it didn't work on your system.

Yes it is correctly pointing to "Install_Dir".  The only difference I can see is that my entry shows additionally "WOW6432Node" as path.

 

I will try later the day your new version and let you know.

No, I meant is the Install_Dir value the path to your installed P3DV4AddonOrganizer?!

You will need the EXporter to use that in any case. I've only removed all references to P3DV4AddonOrganizer.

Hi,

Here is what my Install_Dir value showing:

C:\Users\Georgi\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\Lorby-SI AddonOrganizer_P3D_V4

My concern is that the folder Prepar3D v4 Add-ons is empty after running MakeRwys. Both files MakeRwys.exe and LorbySceneryExport.exe are in the main P3D V4 folder.

Am I doing something wrong?

MakeRwys_Scenery.cfg

MakeRunways doesn't touch such a folder.  Older versions did load the AddOnOrganizer (from wherever it was), but it never ever deletes any files that it doesn't create. And the current version of MakeRunways uses LorbySceneryExport.exe. All reference to the AddOnOrganizer is removed!!

If something is deleting your Organizer program you'll need to look elsewhere. the is weird. I don't really know anything which goes round deleting programs!

I see you did get a MakeRwys_Scenery.cfg file generated, so it worked!

Hi Pete,

Thank you for the reply. I was reading the posts above and simply posted the Install_Dir registry value, which is found in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\AddonOrganizer_P3D_V4 I would not be surprised if this value remained from the previous versions or most probably from Addon Organizer, which I was using for my scenery.

This is the most important from the entire conversation.

Thank you once again!
