FS2004 looks first in the panel folder for the required gauges and then in the main gauge folder.Hope this helps.

For me it works as it should with no error messages.This is what I did -Unzipped it to a Temporary Folder first.Copied the CONTENTS of the Gauge folder (84 objects in all including a Folder named DME) - and Pasted the 84 objects into the Panel folder of the B747-200 Classic Panel folder which is a part of the unzipped package.I then renamed that Panel folder to Panel.classic (note the period between the words Panel and classic)This folder was then placed in my 747_400 aircraft folder and I edited the aircraft.cfg file so the Panel= line now reads Panel=classicThis was done for each "paint" of the aircraft I wanted that panel to be used with.Doing that makes the 747-400 use the new classic panel instead of the default one.I do not like to put a bunch of gauges for any panel into my main Gauge folder in case I do not want to keep the panel in question. Placing them in the Panel folder helps keep my Gauge folder from getting cluttered with gauges I do not need. FS2004 looks in the Panel folder first for any gauges it requires and then looks in the main gauge folder if they are not found.As I said, it all works properly for me.
