Ed, the prices for FS9 planes are almost unbelievable  I already have several from way back, but at these prices I can pick up 3 or 4 more for less than $20.

That's effectively buy one, get four free. I think I can afford the whole canon.

 

Happy Christmas to Carenado!

I got me the Cessna 185, maybe I'll get the Cessna 206, then I think I have the full set!

I bought the only one I still didn't have and now I can't get it to install!  Must be why they're on sale.  I'm being punished. :huh:

What's the problem?

I get an error message saying that FS2004 is not installed.  Mine is installed outside of the regular file structure, but that has never been a problem with any Carenado products.  It doesn't give me an option for a different path.

Just create the default directory and plunk the fs9.exe in it, sometimes that is enough to fool an installer into working. Then just drag the installed plane into the real FS directory.

Was wondering when you purchase one of their planes do they already have updated patches or should you install any of the updates provided (FS9 and FSX).  So far I have purchased the Seneca V and plan on picking up one or two more.,

Thanks for this post, Ed!  I probably would have missed this otherwise.  Gave me a chance to acquire the rest of their product catalog for a ridiculously low price.  I too wish they would add FS9 versions of the TBM and PC-12....someday....

Hi Carl,

  When they come out with the patches, they replace the download file with a version that already includes any patches or fixes. That's why the patch has a statement that it applies for any planes that were downloaded prior to a specified date.

Thanks Kerry I should have checked their update pages.  Getting kinda lazy at this old age.

Carenado has failed to answer either of my emails regarding the failure of the add-on aircraft I purchased to properly install.  I'm glad  it was only $5 rather than $25.

I had a problem with installing one of the planes (Skywagon) I bought at the sale because it was a self-executing zip in a zip. I solved that by first deactivating my anti-virus program, then extracting the executable and then installing from the extracted file. No problem anymore

No joy here either.  I just can't get that executable to open.  I do really appreciate your responses.  Windows 8.1 is often a challenge since it is designed to defeat what you and I try to do: fiddle with the innards.  Thanks to the many bright people who choose to use their computer knowledge towards good ends,  I have been able to solve every problem I encounter, just as I will eventually solve this one, with help.  I'm very disappointed that a company as talented and reliable as Carenado has chosen to ignore my issue and keep my money.  Even though I financially supported your recent efforts, I decided not to use the product. That's my choice. After more than a dozen add-ons  purchased from Carenado, I don't even get the courtesy of an e-mail. That's their choice.

Update to my last post; After sending a third e-mail, I received an automated response from Carenado that their tech dept. would look into my complaint.  After trying many suggestions,  it appears that there must be some flaw in the downloaded file or an incompatibility with the 8.1 OS.  I have never had a problem with an exe. file prior to this.

Well I hope that the Carenado team will sort this out for you, and you will get to fly the plane instead of having to messabout with the installation!

Carenado gave me a refund on the purchase.  They had no suggestions on what might be the problem.
