New problem with my FSC 9.7 (answered)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

When I last used FSC, while everything was working normally, for no reason, everything bugged. I had to restart the application. This is where everything got complicated:
First, this message appears: "databases for FS2004 or incomplete or missing. You have to change FS simulator version or run FSdb manager first.

First off all, I work with P3Dv4 and I did none manipulation to pass to FS 2004, which I never used before. I first tried to change the version of the simulator, but again, everything indicated that FSC worked well with P3Dv4; Then, I still launched the fsdb manager. As usual I selected both the right FS Path and the scenery library path. But when I launched the Update Airports,  I am told "finished" immediately (the update is not done at all).

And that's not all: I tried to re-launch FSC.exe, and this new message appears: "you have to run the database manager first! File country.fsc missing or zero bytes! Check FSC_info.log for details!" 

In summary, I am completely unable to use FSC.

I bought my FSC on simmarket. So I tried to download the last version of the programm from there, but I was told that the domain FS Commander is sold by its owner!

So, I need your help to know what to do,

Thank you,

Olivier MOndon

Hello Olivier,

If I read it correctly, you had the same problem in February this year.

At the beginning a note:
The FlightSim Commander is a very intelligent program.
However, the program does not have an artificial intelligence that causes it to change something, possibly at midnight.
It's also not able to annoy the user independently.

I strongly recommend that you always have a current backup.
Then you can even remove the errors, that you as a user caused, by simple recovery.

I recommend reading chapter 20 in the French manual;
Charger les bases de donées pour FS2004, FS X or Prepar3D.

This applies particularly to paragraph 4.
The right screenshot shown there should not escape your attention.

Best regards,

Volker

As you recommanded me, I read the french version of the FSC manual and did exactly what it was asked to change the database.

I made a screenshot of what happened (the left side). However the program path is the right one, so I still need help.

Sorry for the inconvenience

Regards,

Olivier

Hello Olivier,

I am sorry but i can not help you.

You have installed the FSCommander under C:\Programs (x86).
You may have unknowingly changed your access rights.

You can try to check the link you created under the Compatibility tab, "Run program as administrator".

Otherwise:
I recommend uninstalling FSCommander and then reading the document attached below.
(Vista and Windows 7_8_10 users please read.pdf) 
You can also find this document in the FSC subfolder /Doc of the FlightSim Commander.

Then install the program again as administrator.
But never under Program Files(x86), ProgramData or Program Files.

Regards,
Volker

btw.
What do you want to tell me with the right screenshot?

Vista and Windows 7_8_10 users please read.pdf

HI Volker,

I think I will definitely drop FSC. I really regret it (it's really a very good program) but I'm a little discouraged .... let's say that I uninstall FSC I won't even have access to FSCsetup exe after ... and anyway I couldn't no longer install it.

From my simmarket account the setup files is no more available.

Otherwise, does that mean I have to buy again? And then, will the latest FSC10 versions be compatible with my version of P3Dv4? FSC 9.7 was already limited to this level .... but it worked!

Thanks for taking the time to try to help me

Regards,

Olivier

Hello Olivier,

>>> Otherwise, does that mean I have to buy again?

If you have lost the installation file, please send me an email. You can find my address here:
https://forum.simflight.com/topic/87556-important-information-information-importante-información-importante-wichtige-information/

This support is of course free of charge.
Nevertheless, I recommend that you keep the installation file and the registration key safe.

Regards,
Volker
