Has anyone got it to work? My first attempts have been unsuccessful

Have you got all your file paths set up correctly? I don't have FSXSE, but I do have SE games and Their root folders are a sub folder within a sub folder of Steam Apps, so this could really confuse a lot of FSX add on software.

 

Just a suggestion.

There are no files paths to set, it does it automatically. But I can see the indexer working away but it stalls here

 

 

E:\FSX-SE\steamapps\common\FSX\\_CommonRedist\vcredist\2005

Zoran, I would contact Tegwyn. I am only assuming VATC is compatible with FSXSE. Assuming it is then maybe Tegwyn can figure it out, he is usually pretty helpful.

Rick yep I did it. Most everything works in FSX-SE except my two most expensive add ons, Vox atc and Aivlasoft and  the latter I created a work around for

Good news ! I installed FSX boxed and then deleted it leaving the registry. Vox installed AOK!

 

Happy about that

Glad you got it sorted. Could this be the workaround, for those that have a MS edition at least?

 

Does the old edition have to be activated by MS before deletion, or just run through the installation process to get the registry entries?

Rick no activation required I just took it to the end of Disk 2

What I mean is that there are probably many pilots out there that have a boxed addition (Microsoft addition) of FSX that now requires contacting MS because it has too many reinstalls on it and wish to switch to the SE, can use this workaround if VOX ATC is their choice of ATC add on.

This is unrelated to a point, but how did you do a work around for EFB? I have both versions of FSX, but I am holding off uninstalling box edition until everything works with SE. Thanks

You just need to create a folder called called FSX "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX"  and place it next to the FSX-SE folder and then copy the scenery.cfg file from FSX-SE over to the newly created FSX folder. Thats because EFB needs to scan the scenery.cfg but wont find the path in the new SIm.

 

The dev should be releasing a new installer next update I beleive

Is anyone using traffic 360 with VOX ATC ? for some reason VOX wont use WOAI in fsx steam version, apparantly WOAI doesnt work in FSX-SE according to some,  so I need to replace them . I was thinking traffic x 360 as I have an upgrade deal with them

Spent literally years and lots of money getting FSX to look and run just about as good as FSX can get (in my eyes anyway). In addition I have an extra boxed edition (gift) as backup, so DT/Steam will have to come up with something really good to make me start chasing rainbows again.

Hi All,

Just to provide an alternative method, I also had the same issues because of my uninstalled box edition.  My workaround however was to install voxatc as if I was installing in MS FSX instead of FSX SE.    Since I don't have the boxed edition installed it just installed it into FSX SE without a problem. 

 

Cheers

Hi everyone,

 

I have this issue where the indexer falls over at the redist/2005 point, I have the Steam FSX installed and have my scenery and config files setup in a FSX folder which is in the app data/Microsoft folder, I don't have a MS-SE folder however. But steam looks at my FSX folder for the scenery and its config, plus a few other things like FSX save.

 

So not sure where I go from here, I have tried installing both ways, FSX SE, the FSX only install both fail. FSX indexer falls over at the scan scenery point for a uk2000 install.

 

Any help will be welcomed :)

Rob

At least for me.... VOXATC does not index Steam DLC aircraft installations.  Is there a workaround for this?  All default FSX-SE aircraft have VOX, just not the one DLC I have.  Wont index because... well, there is no check mark for it in the panel setup.  Hand editing doesn't work either, just adding the VOX lines to the panel cfg is not enough.  VOX must have a list of aircraft because after it inits, I get an unknown FSX aircraft error. Runs fine in default aircraft.

 

Thanks in advance for help in resolving.

Hi,

 

I use VoxATC with Steam with no problems, sadly I don't use any DLC from Dovetail. All mine are 3rd party, such as Aerosoft, PMDG and A2A etc. But they all install themselves in the FSX directory under simobjects/aircraft.

 

You could try copying your DLC folder to that folder and run the indexer again, if you copy rather than move at least then your not going to mess up your DLC folder stuff :)

 

And FYI, sometimes the indexer pauses a long time on one entry, best thing to try is set it running and go have a coffee or something. And don't for get to run the panel tool, otherwise you won't see Vox in you aircraft.

 

Just an idea :)

Hi Rob,

 

I'll try the folder move thing.  I know its not an impatience thing as my FSX-SE is clean and the indexing of navaids and aircraft are completed rather quickly without a hitch.

 

Now my issue is moving back and forth between FSX-BOX and -SE as once VOXATC is pointed at -SE it seems to want to stay there.  Sim switcher has no effect AFTER applying to Steam Edition.

 

Support requests in to the author.

I have VoxATC installed into FSX-SE, but am having nothing but problems. My sim is a fresh install of Windows7 and of FSX-SE, all the poaths worked like clockwork with all my addons, including VoxATC. However, it seems to trip up and has become unuseable on virtually every flight. Things include, duplicate commands from both a female and male pilot, incorrect instructions, losing ATC instructions on approach, losing instructions halfway through a flight, the whole thing just stopping midflight. I have performed the relevent actions such as running the aircraft panel manager and scenery indexer. I have emailed the guys at VoxATC twice now and am rather peed off that they haven't replied to either emails. I have V6 and want to know if in fact it is compatible with SE. I see no reason why it shouldn't be. Just need some help really, so am getting a little angry at spending such a large amount of dosh on a piece of software that has become unuseable and find myself being ignored. Not good business.
