Try to understand the difference between heading and track? Crosswinds?


Cheers, Richard

The System Registry file has been corrupted, or modified with a scenery file that has the incorrect Magnetic Variation, or no Magnetic Variation.


 


If it is a corrupted file, it is actually a Windows file, and even deleting and reinstalling FSX will not solve this problem.


 


Flight1 have "FSX/FS9 Registry Repair Tool" available on their website at http://www.flight1.com/view.asp?page=library‎


 


You will need to download this tool and unzip it. Do not run it from the zip file. You will need to run it as Administrator otherwise it will not work, because it needs to repair the registry file which is part of your windows installation and not "just" part of FSX.


 


Sometimes it is caused by a new scenery with wrong/no Magnetic Variation information in the afcad file (the one which lets FSX know where the runways and parking areas are so you can select the airport in the "free flight start" dialogue.)


 


In this case you may also need to install the "Updated MagVar Data" from http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids.html. This will fix the global file and bring the magnetic variation data up to date. I would suggest installing this anyway as a matter of course.


 


Finally to be thorough, and because I found I needed to do this once. Install the http://www.flight1.com/view.asp?page=library‎ Registry repair tool again as administrator and not out of the .zip file.
