Installation Question FSX Steam

Recommended Posts

Purchased EMB505_Phonom300.  Installed in C:\Users\name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX and it appeared to install correctly.  Plane does not show in list of planes.  Tried  article 205355247-How-do-I-install-an-aircraft- and added


above <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> line

Still doesn't show plane.

Downloaded and installed DLL and still doesn't show plane

Am i missing something?

Sorry, I am not an expert with fsx-se, but your path is not correct.  I think any payware aircraft will go into a DLC folder that is part of the Simobjects/Airplanes path.  The path you showed would lead to your FSX.cfg and other essential files

C:\Users\name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX is the wrong folder.  There is a simobjects folder in this folder, but there is where FSX stores you aircraft "states" (state.CFG files) like the hours for the hobbs meters and custom callsigns for each aircraft.  If you used an installer, there should be an uninstaller. Run the uninstaller and this should remove the aircraft from your roaming directory.  I am assuming you have the Carenado version of the Phenon 300.  Unfortunately, the Carenado installers will not  prompt you with the proper directory to install an aircraft. You have to choose the proper install folder. If you chose the default folder when you installed FSX:SE, the folder you should select when prompted should be C:\Programs (X86)\steam\steamapps\common\fsx.
