Uninstall and reinstall your addon manager

Providing that you have a clean update and easy update, last time I ran into some issues....Decent product but it could be pain updating it. Also I found not "compatible" with FSX gating system....For FSX would be HEAVY on FSDT would say to small....Go figure....But overall not bad...

I tried to reinstall with "run as administrator" but it stopped working twice/2 days in a row, so frustrated, one time the Couatl stop working when short approach to FSDT KLAX. Today GSX does not work when I loaded in Imaginesim Atlanta KATL.

Very frustrated and their forum only has one person around, just try to "vector" me around without any success of solving the problem.

You opened a help topic or just browsed the forum for help? If they can’t solve an issue via the forum Umberto will do a TeamSpeak session if needed to correct it. Where is your help needed thread on their forum?

strange  usually   the  dev  will  do a one  on  one  team viewer  to  fix  any issues  that  one has  and  for  you  to post  that  you didnt  receive  any  support  find it  quite  strange

That’s precisely why I was asking Hammer for a link to the thread he started as I didn’t see any threads with that user name asking for help over there. With the exception of a few times where a user has had a very unusual or unique setup, Umberto is quite adept to getting things fixed.

What I'm even more surprised at is that Paypal would refund money for a digital download.  

If true, I can see that being a possible deterrent for a vendor to accept Paypal.

The problem is that for a lot of those affected this only shows up intermittently. Maybe in 20 tries the airport shows up 19 of them. But when number is 20 is after a long-haul flight, it’s incredibly frustrating. Couatl is just not reliable, and is opaque by design (it’s a copy-protection system after all). I agree that Umberto tries to resolve issues, but for the non-reliably repeatable issues like this there’s frankly no real way he can help. And it’s down to Couatl, which he’ll never drop. So here we are.

FSDT airports are truly fantastic and GSX is a must, but I have a great deal of frustration with them! I spend a heck of a lot of time trying to fix them, and I am constantly downloading and re-installing them. It's truly maddening. Flight Beam is wonderful and never have a problem. They are the best!

The main reason for the airport not showing on arrival tends to be due to people using either one of those addons to disable scenery areas or doing it in the scenery library and had disabled the effected airport.

For FSDT airports or any of the FB airports that still use Couatl, it’s not necessary to disable them to save VAS but if you still do you must do the following.

1. Enable the airport in the library or in whatever scenery manager your using.

2. Start FSX or P3D and let it load completely.

3. Exit FSX/P3D and then restart it 

Once those steps are done there shouldn’t be a reason for an arrival airport to me missing or not showing.

I had this happen to me once years ago and it’s been mentioned by Umberto many times as the reason for arrival airports not showing as a lot of people where unticking the airports or scenery areas in prior flights, re-enabling them and not starting FSX twice to get Couatl to properly reload it.

Having said that, once it quit disabling their airports I’ve not had one not show up in the last 7 years. 

Hope this helps anyone having that issue.
