'Path does not exist'

Recommended Posts

FSX-SE edition on Windows 7 Home Premium.


My Scenery files have suddenly gone haywire overnight, I have a loss of FPS, down to 15, the screen is stuttering quite badly and the scenery is populating all the time, textures are also incoherent with lines across the landscape etc. I have checked ‘Scenery Editor’ and all Orbx and FSX default scenery files, contained a red triangle with an exclamation mark and ‘Path does not exist’, (UK 2000 software is not affected) I attempted a backup of the files in SE, but it failed. I also checked the path of the Scenery.cfg file (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\\FSX) but there was none in this format? Only ‘Scenery’ a copy of the file is attached. Scenery files in FSX settings are all ticked.

A ‘Verify integrity of Game files’ check has also been carried out in STEAM, 193 files failed to validate and were reacquired, but these have no affect on the scenery.

I have no idea how this issue has occurred, all scenery has been working satisfactorily for a considerable time and due to my lack of knowledge in this area, I can confirm no changes have consciously been made to the Scenery File.


1.      Landscape Scrpnt (a)

2.      Landscape Scrpnt (b)

3.      SCE Scrpnt.

4.      Scenery path as shown in SCE (above)

5.      ‘Scenery’ content.


I have 5 attachments showing the problem but I'm not sure how uploading works?


Can anybody put me in the wright direction please, should I post this on another forum?

Just found a discussion here at AVSIM, what you need is FSTScenery.exe, it should fix your scenery.cfg error's and provide a report.


You can find the uploaded file bu NickN here:

You have to place it where the scenery.cfg is located. I checked one of my sceneries with it by creating a folder on the desktop and placing the scenery.cfg and FSTScenery.exe in it and running it. I think its a safe way of going through your scenery.cfg.
