Greetings,

I have a interesting problem that recently popped up, maybe, hoping someone has seen this before. I thought  your knowledge and expertise on all things gauges and panels could  help me with this head scratcher.

I recently noticed that the radios and some gauges effecting all of the FSX default aircraft that use (Bendix-King radios) are now blank panels.Aerosoft payware aircraft (BeaverX) is also effected the same way. I was really stumped about the Areosoft Beaver but then realized that there is a default FSX Beaver.The aircraft that I really care about is Manfred Jahn's C-117D Super DC-3 and the DC-3 v2, version 3 is not effected for obvious reasons. Other payware is not effected.I have a freeware DC-3 (Basler PT-6) conversion that also lost it's radios.

The only thing I can think of is all these aircraft share the same code from FSX. but that is as far as my knowledge takes me, I think it has to do with a cfg.file of some kind somewhere, but like I said even if I looked at these files I could not tell what is missing or not. I did try and uninstall and reinstall one aircraft but with same results.So that kinda told me that this a FSX thing. The only things of significance that I have downloaded in the last few months is Flight1 Garmin KTN 750 and ActiveSky. I did remove a couple of old freeware aircraft , possible I removed something I shouldn't have ?

 

I noticed this problem last week or so but I really have no idea how long this has been like this. I downloaded the C-117D about a year ago with no problems and just downloaded the new DC-v3 and decided to fly the C-117D that's when I first started noticing the problem. I can live without the default aircraft, except maybe the C-208, which has a payware version that I am afraid to buy now. Anyway that's the story, if anyone has a suggestion or advise I am all ears.

 

Thanks in advance

Look in ...\FSX\Gauges for Bendix_King_Radio.dll

 

It should be 453kb and dated September 26, 2007

Thanks for the reply Joe, I have gone to FSX\Gauges and  there is no Bendix_King_Radio.dll anywhere. There are other dlls, gau,and cab files that date back to 2003

Joe, A followup to my last post, I remembered that I had another stock copy of FSX on another computer so I went looking and sure enough there was my missing dll file for the Bendix\King radios. So I copied and installed and everything is back where it should be. Thanks very much for your help I would never have figured out how to fix this if you had not aimed me in the right direction.
