MCE not recognising my aircraft

Recommended Posts

I was hoping someone can help and point out what I'm doing wrong.

 

I recently upgraded to P3Dv3, and yesterday I purchased the Realair Turbine Duke V2. Today I decided to try and get some scripts started on it and some checklists. So I load the aircraft to my sim, I start MCE and after a few seconds it tells me it can not read aircraft info and contact the software vendor.

 

Now when I installed the Duke the installer informed me that Lockheed Martin recommended not installing in the main P3D folder, so I installed it outside of the main folder. The aircraft runs fine, but MCE can't see the any info. Could this be because the aircraft is outside of the P3D Folder?

Affirmative.

 

There is a workaround involving editing "mce.ini" and manually adding path to "cfgPaths.dat". However, it's not suitable when using MCE with more than one simulator.

 

For now, install to default SimObjects folder.

 

Hopefully, in next update will have MCE catching those aircraft installing outside P3D folder.

Thanks Gerald,

 

At least I know why MCE doesn't pick it up. I'll reinstall to simobjects then.

 

Cheers Rob
