P4AO - Missing Roaming EXE's in the list?

Recommended Posts

I may be wrong but It seems that the EXE.cfg file located in \AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5 is not read so its entries are not displayed.

Mine contains 3 entries but under Other addons tab, when I filter with EXE I can't see them in the component list.

Hello Roland,

The entries in the exe.xml/dll.xml etc. are not Addon.Components in the true sense of the word, beacuse they are not part of a Package.

The "classic" addon config files are only displayed for information, they should be at the very bottom of the "Other Addons" list. Be mindful that there can always be two copies of each file (one in "AppData", another in "ProgramData"). Generally speaking, neither should be in use. Instead, all programmatic addons (exe, dll) should be proper components in a Package (= an add-on.xml)

Best regards

Thanks Oliver, that's clear.

And also I have missed out that without filter they are correctly displayed at the bottom in gray color.

I'm learning 🙂
