No big deal I just couldn't find a forum for direct contact.I noticed that the installer always puts the files into c:\Program Files\... which is no problem if you read the messages as you are installing, but there are (as we all know) people that just click and click ...On Vista 64 or XP 64 you don't want the files going there. Instead they should go to C:\Program Files (x86)\...I'm not sure if the installer you use can tell the difference and it's not hard to make the change manually, but it could be some people won't know/realize what happened.If you are aware of this already my apology for bringing it up and posting a new topic. I love what you are doing for FSX!

I myself rarely use installers if possible, Never know whats going to happen and what is getting written where. i had one addon aircraft way back when that wound up being a disaster for some reason i can't remember what. I just extract the .bgl file to the appropriate location with winzip.
