Trouble importing Taxiways

Recommended Posts


I'm just trying out Pilot2ATC to decide if i want to buy the software, and love it so far. I'm running in some issue regarding importing of taxiways, it seems i cannot get it to work at all. I have searched trough ths forum, and found some useful information and tried everything i could come over, but nothing seems to help. 

I have a custom scenery pack from Aerosoft on ENGM Gardermoen. But this problem seems to happen on airports with default scenery aswell - the only airport i have got it to work is EGGL Heathrow.

When I'm presing the import button i get the following message about failing to backup:


When clicking "Yes", i get this message:


Gate import works just fine.

With this info, i have found out that i need to check my scenery_packs.ini file of any duplicates of the ICAO name. I found some mesh and road folders, and moved those to the bottom of the list. That did not work, so I tried to rename the folders and updating the scenery_packs.ini file, with no luck.

Then i heard that many custom airports do not have taxiway information. I downloader WED and opened the scenery. I have never user WED before, but it seems it already have Taxi Routes in?



One theory is file permissions, since X-Plane is running on a differend hard-drive. I installed Pilot2ATC on the same drive, and the X-plane folder to be modified by everyone. Running Pilot2ATC as Admin does not help either.

My scenery_packs.ini file looks like this:
