FSX registry problem

Recommended Posts

During the installation of the Cessna 172 FSX Edition I get the warning that FSX is not correctly installed and it is suggested to fix the registry.In order to avoid a complete reinstall of FSX could you tell me what keys need to be present?My FSX is of course legal.thanks,Willem

Hello Willem,HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftMicrosoft GamesFlight Simulator10.0Under "Name," it should say "SetupPath".You can check the Registry using "Regedit".-Bryan

If any of you encountered a situation where, during the install, you got an error message stating that the .exe could not be located, it's because FS2Crew could not locate the .exe via your Registry.Why?If, when you installed FSX, you unchecked "install for all users" you likely experienced this issue.It has to do with FS2Crew -and the vast majority of other addon installers- looking for FSX in "LOCAL MACHINE" versus "CURRENT USER" (This is from your Registry).You can easily resolve this situation by running the FSX Registry Tool by TweakFS. Be sure to read the small document that comes with it:http://tweakfs.com/download/fsx_reg_utility.zipCheers,Bryan
