Deleting FSX.cfg and restarting FSX fails

4 posts in this topic

I wanted to do a clean sweep of my FSX.CFG file so renamed it and restarted FSX.

It went through the normal startup procedure, but then, with the FSX main logo still showing, an error dialogue popped up saying it could not find the default flight and would need to reinstall FSX, then quit to desktop.

I renamed the config file to the original restarted OK and went back in and made sure the default flight was selected and then went thru the process again - same result - no go.

 

First time I have seen this

Yes I have add-ons by the score

I very very reluctant to reinstall unless absolutely necessary

 

Anybody with any clues as to what might cause this?

Maybe you can try this:

 

Copy all the text below in notepad, and save the file as FLTSIM.FLT

Then copy this file into your FSX installation folder in the sub folder flights\other

Ok, Thanks for the reply and the help

 

- I will give it a go - tomorrow now. But I am still perplexed as to why FSX suddenly refuses to create a new config file

 

Ray

 

OK, had some time before we get picked up (for a party) - so dived into FSX to pop the file I created - and presto - found the answer as to why it came up with an error - NO FLIGHT folder. It had gone - disappeared - vanished.

 

So restored that folder from backup and good to go

 

Thanks again for your help - as it was the act of looking for the folder that triggered the fix
