Add on menu disappeared

Recommended Posts

My add on menu has disappeared after I copied and pasted my FSX folder onto a new ssd drive. I have ran the FSX registry fix file. I have installed a number of add ons (fsuipc, Fstramp) but there is no add on menu. Any help very much appreciated.

 

Thanks

John

This might be because the file paths for all those modules (located in the dll.xml) is still pointing to the previous location. I belive you'll have to fix it manually, but that shouldn't be too much work.

Yes, it should be fixable in the dll.xml.

 

If not, just do a reinstall of the addons.

Many thanks FloG but I have changed that file and still no success. FSX was originally on C drive but I have copied it to the H drive. I have pasted my dll.xml file where you can see some entries pointing to H:\FSX. 

 

If you would be so kind to have a look at it for me I would very much appreciate it.

John, to which drive did you move? I only ask because some entries point to the H drive, some to the E, and some are still pointing to the standard directory unless I'm mistaken.

 

Summary:

ORBX dll's are located at H, but you wouldn't find them in the addon menu, you'd just not see the "Flow" animations in their sceneries. AirnavBridges seems to be there, too.

SDK tools seem to be in the default directory*, but you wouldn't see those either, because they're disabled

FSTramp and FSDiscover seem to be in E, and seem to be enabled, so check if those paths are correct.

Follow me, FSUIPC, RealTrim, AccuFeel and FsKneeboard might also refer to paths that are not correct, namely the original directories*.

 

*I'm not entirely sure about it, but I believe that the directory, where FSX looks for the dll's is the default one (C:\Program Files (x86)\ Microsot Games\Microsoft Fligth Simulator X) unless specified otherwise, hence you might  need to change those entries, but again, I'm not sure about it.

Thanks FloG. I think the easiest way out of it is an uninstall and reinstall. A pain in the a... But it might tidy things up. I am now in the process of reinstalling. Once that is done, I will copy my saved Fsx folder into the one I just reinstalled into and hope for the best. If I run into a problem I will post again. Many thanks for your input.

Guys

I have just uninstalled FSX and then re installed it into my H drive. I then re installed fsuipc, follow me and Fs Tramp and still no add on menu. I am pulling my hair out. Has anyone please got any suggestions? Here is the contents of my dll.xml file:

 

 

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

    <Disabled>True</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Path>..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Mission Creation Kit\object_placement.dll</Path>

    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>

and here is the contents of my exe.xml file:
 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0">
  <Descr>Launch</Descr>
  <Filename>exe.xml</Filename>

Many thanks for any help.
