Where is the SDK in FSXSE

Recommended Posts

I heard that the SDK is included with Steam. I did not buy the deluxe version of FSX 8 years ago.

 

Which folder is this located in with STEAM.

 

Thanks

Dovetail Games is not licensed to distribute the SDK. Stupidly though they include parts of the SDK, but not the exporter and compilers.

 

You can however use the Prepar3D v1.4 SDK that is downloadable from Lockheed-Martin. I use it now instead of the FSX SDK.

I think I read somewhere that using the P3D SDk could cause problems. To be 100% safe, you can download the FSX SDK here: http://www.fsdeveloper.com/wiki/index.php?title=SDK_Installation_%28FSX%29

The SDK is not available from there or anywhere else. That is the FS Developer Wiki page giving instructions for installing the SDK, assuming one already has FSX:Gold or FSX:Deluxe + Acceleration.

 

I've been using the Prepar3D v1.4 SDK for several years now professionally. There are no problems with using it. Period.

Bill,

 

In your scenery design program where do you point the various setting to for this  compiler to work in FSX?

 

Thanks

This is my command line. I have the P3Dv1.4 SDK installed on my C drive in a \Data sub-folder.

%windir%\system32\cmd.exe /K C:"\DATA\Prepar3d_SDK\Environment 
Kit\Modeling SDK\3DSM7\Plugins\xtomdl.exe" /DICT:"C:\DATA\Prepar3d_SDK\Environment Kit\Modeling 
SDK\bin\modeldef.XML" /XMLSAMPLE /XANIM > buildlog.txt

Ok, it's good that it works. Perhaps the person I saw advising against it meant the v2 SDK. So, the sdk.msi you can click on to download about halfway down the page does not install the SDK? What is it for then?

Those files on the wiki page are updates and require an installation of the previous version of the SDK.
