Installing GNS and G1000 in FSX Boxed and Steam side by side

Recommended Posts


I have both FSX Boxed and FSX Steam due scenery reasons (one for ORBX the other for regular FSX autogen)

I was able to install both GNS and G1000 on FSX boxed but the installer doesn't seems to show the option between both versions of FSX.It goes directly to FSX boxed version.

I was able to edit manually the fsx steam dll,.xml  to allow hypergauge to be recognized, having it at FSX SE modules.

it recognize it and after that during loading, FSX SE asks if they are trusted including MPI gauges, but it fails after loading (having a true path to steam fsx edited on the dll.xml) but ....if I point the path to the hypergauge installed at FSX Boxed module, it loads! without any trouble.

I already installed fsx SE simconnect to avoid problems with it.

Is this correct? or do you you have separate installers for both FSX DVD and SE? like F1 GTN does.

Many thanks

No we don't have separate installers. We support installation into FSX. However, when there are two FSX installs, only the one the registry points to gets the install.
