Unable to find FSX.exe

Recommended Posts

I recently just purchased pretty much all the PMDG planes and I had no problems installing the 747-400 and 8i extension as well as the MD-11 and they work flawlessly but when I attempted to install the 777 and 737 I get the cannot find fsx.exe error. I tried the fs registry repair tool and a fresh install of FSX no luck. I am running FSXSE on Windows 8.1 64bit.

Please Help many thanks in advance

It's definitely a registry issue of some sort. I'm guessing you're running both FSX and FSX:SE on the same computer?

I had original fsx before just briefly installed at the time but currently no

 

So you had FSX, installed FSX:SE, and then removed FSX?

correct

 

That's the issue, then. I'm not quite comfortable with offering up ideas on how to go into the registry to resolve those issues, though, because editing the registry can cause a decent amount of damage to a computer (in a software function sense).

 

This thread explains the issue:

Also, full names are required in the forum, please.

You're welcome! Glad it's working.

 

Thanks for making the adjustment, as well.
