FSDT Addon Manager won't show up

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I have just done a full fsx re install and have gotten all my addons to work.  However, upon the re installation of FSDT addon manager, I have run into some problems.  I have FSX Gold, so Acceleration is installed.  I have used the latest version from the FSDT website.  Upon installation, I can see that the correct entries have been made in both the exe and dll files.  However, FSX never asked me to "trust the addon" on my first run.  Nothing shows up on the cfg's trusted section, but the bglmanx file is set to run in the dll.  I have registered for an account on FSDT's forum and it is pending approval.  I just wanted to see if anyone here had ideas.

 

Thanks in advance,

In order for it to show up it has to have been added in the dll.xml. If it is not there, then you need to download and run the latest Addon Manager.

 

EDIT: I would go back to the dll.xml before the Addon Manager. Then reinstall the Addon Manager using Administrative Rights.

Thanks for the response! As I said, the entries have been made in the dll.xml file.  It just doesn't show up in the addon menu.  Any other ideas?

 

Thanks again.

Go to the FSDT website they have a good support forum, while you are in FSX check your add on Menu make sure the Add on manager is listed in that menu, Also, if you are running anti-virus make sure you exclude the 2 FSDT files from being scanned. More detailed information is listed in FSDT support forum and easy to find. Your issue is common but easily fixed if you follow the forum suggested tips. I had the same problem at one time but now I know what to do its a non-issue.

Here's the fix - http://www.fsdreamteam.com/forum/index.php?topic=6392.0. You have to uninstall the addon manager.
