Installing SDK for Missions

Recommended Posts

It's been almost 2 years since I have installed the FSX SDK for creating missions. For some reason it is not working. I think part of it has to do with the path since I have a Windows 64 bit but I am also confused about the other items to be installed. I am reading the FS Developer wiki but it's not sinking in for seom reason. I have done this before and it took me awhile that time too.

 

Any help appreciated. Do I have to install additional files from Microsoft?

 

Here is the developer link I am reading but I am not understanding this go around about the other files to install!

 

http://www.fsdeveloper.com/wiki/index.php?title=SDK_Installation_(FSX)

 

And here is the info for the path to the tool!

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>

<SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0">

<Descr>Launch</Descr>

<Filename>dll.xml</Filename>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>

 

<Launch.Addon>

<Name>Object Placement Tool </Name>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<Path>..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Mission Creation Kit\Object_Placement.dll</Path>

</Launch.Addon>

 

</SimBase.Document>

 

My FSX files are in \Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Mission Creation Kit\Object_Placement.dll

 

I have tried entering that path and nothing works.

 

Any ideas? Shouldn't I see the Tools menu if it works correctly when I go to Free Flight?

Hi,

 

I'm using Win7 64 and your path statement looks the same as mine. I presume your dll.xml file is located down there below "Roaming". I clicked on the link you provided and discovered it was to the former Wiki location. The correct link is http://www.fsdeveloper.com/wiki/index.php?title=SDK_Installation_(FSX).

That procedure has been gone over with a fine tooth comb and does work.

After you've covered every step on the page click on Troubleshooting at the bottom of the page.

With Win7 I don't think any other fies need to be downloaded.
