Is your FSX install in C:\Program Files ( you said you had no problem with FSX), Windows 10 is a lot more picky about letting you do stuff in the C:\Program Files folder, especially if your not running the account not logged in as administrator. (that might be your problem). Best thing to do is reboot. You may just have a permission glitch and the reboot will clear it.

A lot of potential problems can be alleviated by not installing into C:\ Program Files,, just put P3D in it's own folder.

Tony,

 

Can you provide a link to the scenery that has a script?  I've not seen one for the Dash and would love to see it.

Many thanks.

Dave, I think "script" was a misnomer. I think he was trying to add the livery into the aircraft.cfg.

As the painter, Tony got in touch with me and I told him to shove off!

Not really. :biggrin:

'Script' got me going too. I've asked him to disable UAC because what else is there that would stop him editing a .cfg? Nuffin!

Tony, tell me you unzipped the folder.

@Dave. Here's the paint in question LINK

It the same on AVSIM

LOL, thanks brother Ron!

I have to say that I've long had and love that livery, and didn't realize you were the one who painted it!  Thanks, great work Ron!

You haven't had mine for long, I only did it a month ago. It IS different though, as it's based in Scotland somewhere it is plastered with thistles! Looks nice. :)

Ah, I was thinking it was the one that's been available for quite some time.  I'm looking forward to checking it out!

This is a windows 10 issue.  I ran into this with FSX:SE.  I had to completely uninstall FSX, and run the installer as an administrator.

you can try going into the specific folders and changing the owner to your profile. That may solve the problem, but it did not work in my case.

Thanks for all the advice guys. Yes, sorry about using the term "script" I was putting the wording as per Ron's instructions into the cfg file. Having spent the last 3 months setting everything up into P3Dv4,  and having tried all the various suggestions without success, I am not going to reboot,or reinstall P3D, at this time, for the sake of one livery.

I have a contact who is a P.C wizard, so will invoke his expertise at some point.

Thanks again   Tony Merry
