Unable to install MakeRunways Prepar 3d

Recommended Posts

I am unable to install the runway Database by Pete Dowson into Prepar 3D. I have installed the database into FSX no problem. Any help would be appreciated.

        I have already put the EXE file into the P3D folder. I keep getting the following messages:-

 

        Failed to make Runways CSV Files

        Failed to make FstarRc Rws Files.

 

 

As I said before I installed the same EXE file into the FSX folder and it works O.K.

Right click on the makeruneways.exe file and select "run as administrator".  It's giving you those errors because it doesn't have access to create the necessary files.

I've managed to install it on P3D v2.5 with no probs.

As jlohrenz suggests, just r/c to run.

Gents,

 

          I have solved the problem. I was reading the RASS documentation and this directs you to the download  MAKE RUNWAYS from Pete Dowson.

 

For some reason this directs you to Version 4.60

 

 

 

Although this version works for FSX it doesn`t appear to work for P3D.

 

Going direct to the Pete Dowson site the version there is Version 4.678.

 

 

Installing version 4.678  everything works perfect.

 

Thanks for all your help.

 

Brian
