You may have duplicate traffic.bgl(s) in your scenery folders. You may also have a fouled scenery.cfg file.You might download scanbglsV2.zip or afcad140.zip by Lee Swordy and run the scan bgls program to see if it finds any corrupt files.

Hi ! i have been reading the forum for years and finally decided to sign up and post.I had this problem start up last week where ms2002 is "updating scenery files " everytime i start it up even when i do not add any files.The only things that i did that i can think of is i installed simflyers CYYZ scenery,flight1 piper meridian,the CYQB ver2 quebec city scenery,and updated navdata for pic767,dreamfleet737,and PSSaircraft,all roughly around the time this started.I'm not sure which if any of these caused the problem.Did you add any of these files recently? I would like to track down this annoying problem and make it go away! johnnyvk

Dan,I am getting this scenery update also for no apparent reason, but not everytime. I am going to keep better track of what I do and see if I can track it down. It is very annoying since it takes forever to finish and then you still have to load your regular scenery. Maybe someone has a good idea on what it is.Airbus

Hi again,I am still having this problem going on with "updating scenery files" everytime I run fs2002.i did a search for SCANBGLSV2 in the file library but could not find it.is that the correct name? Also i notice odd letter and number files like this 10a1,2123,41e4,50b6,52f3 etc. building up in the fs2002 root directory(about 5 or 10 or more) of them.I delete them and new number files reappear.i think it may be related to this promblem but i'm no expert.i'm stumped.any more ideas? johnnyvk

Do a search for the author -- Lee Swordy. I have the app (it's only 56k) and it solved my problem by finding two corrupted BGL files. Eliminating them not only stopped the dreaded "rebuilding database" issue but cleared up another nagging problem where some airports were no longer available for selection.BTW, the app came out around 9 March 2003Racartronit means something, but I just can't remember what.
