Unable to open config files...P3dV3.3

Recommended Posts

O/S: Win10

 

Just tried to open the aircraft config file to add a new livery and all of a sudden I can't open the config file. I'm getting a message asking to find an appropriate file. Always had (I think) notepad to do this. Never had problems before with Win10 on this computer. The only thing I've done is delete and reinstall the Majestic dash8 latest download.  Any suggestions would be appreciated. Many thanks. Dave

Try making sure the file association for .cfg is your editor, or you can use that message box to browse to the editor and check always use this.

When you right click the file, you should have a menu option to "Open with".  Select Notepad.  If Wordpad is available, you can use that too.  But all configs are usually opened with Notepad.  If you still have issues, right click the file and select Properties.  Make sure "Read only" is not ticked.

 

Best regards,

Jim
