Updating AIRAC Database (solved by user)

Recommended Posts

Just purchased FSC10 from Aerosoft. Installed ok, I then updated the AIRAC database to 1802 using the Navigraph manager. This thinks its ok but both the opening page and help page of FSC10 both display AIRAC-1011

Hi Volker, sorry for my abrupt approach. I'll try and give you everything you need

I use FSX version given as 10.0.61637.0

FSUIPC 4.972 and also Widefs

I use FSC both on a network and standalone. The results are the same on both

FSC Version is FSC10

Navigraph is the airac provider and the cycle is 1802. Airac.ini is attached

Its the Aerosoft downloaded version.

My OS on the standalone system is Windows 7 and the networked version is XP

I've attached the 'about' page where is shows the offending airac

Thanks in advance  for your help

Hi Volker,

Good news, I've managed to fix it. It was due, in part, to my old installation of FSC9. The real culprit was the Navigraph update engine. When first installed, this auto-searches for any software that it is relevant to. Of course it found my FSC9 installation in an directory called FSC. FSC10 Auto installs into a directory called FSC10. I had installed this in the directory called FSC ( Big Mistake !! ). I deleted both and started again with a fresh install of FSC10. I then had to update the path in the Navigraph manager. This is what fixed the problem.

Anyway, all is now good and thank you for your efforts to help me.

Regards  Paul Heywood

Hello Paul,

I had expected something similar.
Always good if users solve the problem because the FSCommander is not the problem.

Regards,

Volker

So what is the final Navigraph AIRAC install path in FSC10's folder tree ?

Do we just point to '...\FSC10\Database' and let 'er go...or do we need a subfolder somewhere ?

 

OK...that wasn't too hard. Just point the Navigraph Data Manager to the main FSC10 folder and it will automatically install to the '...\FSC10\Database' folder.
