FMS Error - Unable to open Airports.txt

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

this is a new one for me. I'm running FSX SP2 on a Win7 64 sim-only system and just in the last two days my sim starts up giving me the error message in the topic title.

 

Strangely I can just click it "ok" and the sim will start fine. I haven't flown every single aircraft in my hangar as there are too many, but the ones I tried so far appear to not be affected by this error message.

 

I'd still like to fix it, does anyone have any recommendations?

 

Thanks in advance,

Peter

Have you installed any new payware aircraft to your Sim lately?  If so, then delete it and see if the error is no longer present.

Thanks Charlie, come to think of it, the only change (I believe) I made was to uninstall the old Digital Aviation Fokker and the FFS Saab. Both were FS9 products but I tried them in FSX a long time ago, and just a few days decided to uninstall them.

 

I've looked at my dll.xml, my exe.xml and my fsx.cfg and can't find any references to either product. 

 

Thanks again for your help Charlie, any other ideas?

 

Cheers,

Pete
