I need somwe advice about re-installing fsx

Recommended Posts

I am quite new to FSX and now have the following message on my FSX start-up window. "The Dem4km.bgl file is damaged or missing. Please re-install Flight Simulator to restore or repair the file."  Do I have to do a complete uninstall and a re-install to do this, or can I simply overwrite to the file to repair or replace the file? I like most have a bunch of addon scenery, aircraft and special effects that I do not want to lose if at all possible. I have done a complete search for this file but can't find it anywhere. Thanks for what ever input you other flight enthusiasts can offer.

If the file is missing or corrupt you can restore it from your install disks. It is located in MSGAME8.cab. A cab file can be opened and files extracted with any good unzipping program. The installed file is located in the main fsx directory\scenery\base\scenery.

 

If you cannot find or unzip msgame8.cab, reinsert your fsx disk and then select the 'repair' option. A repair will overwrite your fsx.cfg and scenery.cfg but everything else should remain intact (including any dll.xml that might have been generated if you installed an addon that uses dll.xml).

 

The following guide for uninstalling/reinstalling FSX is recommended if all else fails:

I have the same problem with a missing bgl file. When I navigated to C:\ \\base\scenery only yo find the folder empty. In fact ALL of my scenery folders show empty. I initially thought the files might be hidden, so I went to the folder properties to make sure the "hidden" box was checked. It was. So, can anyone shed light on where the scenery files are? Thanks!!

Files may not be installed because an anti-virus program thinks the files contain viruses and place the files into quarantine. Same goes with any anti-malware program. You can get them back by doing a repair.
