OpenLC Europe not installed

Recommended Posts

I have been away from FSX for a while but now I notice that in FTX Central V2 it says the OpenLC Europe is not installed. What? I paid for it and installed it - is it possible that it is installed but Central V2 does not pick it up? How can I tell if it is there or not? It does not show up in installed products in Central V2 either. I do not want to reinstall if it is there already.

 

Global OpenLC Europe

Order Number: FSS0307424

Hi Gerry,

You don't need to post your order number on this forum.  It's an 'unofficial' forum, so Orbx doesn't respond.

 

Your best bet is to jump over to the official forum at http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/

 

Good luck,

Ernie

Have the same problem. Up to a point now where I uninstalled all ORBX products and looking at an alternative. There is no support from the developer and on the forums everybody is guessing (with good intent) - I have my own business and my customers do not have to go to other customers to solve problems ... ORBX is payware the last time I checked. Come on guys eventually nobody will invest in your product no matter how "good" it is.

Look in your P3D/ORBX/FTX_OLC folder, are the files there ?

If so look in your scenery.cfg, are the areas declared in there ?

 

If these two conditions are true then OL is installed and probably just need to reinstall Centralv2.

You really need to migrate your products over from FSS to the ORBX system and install Central V3.

Full instructions on this rather painless process are on the Official forum.

Central V2 is obsolete now, if you want future patches you need to migrate your stuff over.

Glynn,

 

Thank you. Yes, the folder is there and the files are there at C:\FSX\ORBX\FTX_OLC. The OpenLC Europe files also are listed  in the scenery tab in FSX. However they do not appear in the scenery .cfg for FSX. What does that suggest? Do I have it or not? I must say I have some sympathy for BAW48. As only a moderately proficient computer user I really do not think I should have to jump through all these hoops. Someone much younger and more literate might think nothing of uninstalling, reinstalling, changing set ups and what have you but for  me it just causes irritation and concern.

 

However I do appreciate the trouble you have gone to to provide help. Thank you.

Which scenery.cfg are you checking ? I don't use FSX anymore but if I remember correctly there are two, one in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX\ and a backup version in your FSX directory.

the one to check is in your ProgramData directory, but if you say it shows up inside the FSX scenery tab then it's installed just fine.

You really need to migrate your purchases over to the ORBX store system from FSS and start using Central V3, this way you will get all future patches directly from the ORBX servers.

Central V2 is now a deprecated system.

 

Full instructions are available at the official forum.

Glynn,

 

I was looking in the wrong area. I did what you suggested and looked under  Program Data and sure enough there it was. Many thanks - you have saved me a lot of work and trouble and I am very grateful. It is people like you who take the time to others out that makes these forums so worthwhile.

 

many thanks,

 

gerry
