FSX exe.xml & Simconnect .xml issues

Recommended Posts

Hi all...

I'm using FSX & Windows 7:  Was doing some checking using the XML File Tool kit and it came up with the alarming findings that I'm missing the FSX exe.xml and Simconnect.xml.

 

To deal with the latter..I've got the simconnect.ini  and I launched it and it says please "wait" while it "configures" There's a brief green 'progress' bar and then nothing...does that mean its worked? I can't find any evidence of it...but I'm probably not looking in the right place. 

 

As for the FSX exe.xml...checked with the thread here 'How to generate a new exe.xml file' and I'm a little confused as to the way forward...I've checked where it should be and can't see it. Read the part of renaming the FSX.cfg and then restarting FSX and a new one being generated...I don't Q this BTW, just a little unsure if it'll help with the problem here

 

I've also looked at the option of a repair...my FSX 'box' sits here ready, but I'm not keen on that idea!  :( 

Thanks in advance

I don't know what the "XML File Tool kit" is yet I am pretty sure those two files are not part of the FSX installation.

 

I do know that some addons will create the exe.xml, FSX doesn't.

Hi Joe..

Thanks for the reply and your time...The exe.xml, I think I might have sorted just earlier,read something and 'created' one..So far so good! :mellow:  As for the simconnect..Not sure, I can't find it (don't know what I'm looking for) Again though, nothing seems amiss...

Thanks for your time

Hi Daveo

 

 

 

What exactly are you trying to do?

 

Good Q..Actually, my issue was and still is to an extent the performance of my FSX since I put W7 in...doesn't seem as good as when I had XP. So I decided to have a look at trying to find out why...So, with my limited knowledge of things IT related I came across the 'missing' files..I seem to have sorted it, I think. :Thinking:

 

Now I'm trying to get FS9 back to what it was...That's even more confusing :unsure: 

 

Thanks for taking the time to post

Best Wishes

ZA
