EMBRAER ERJ135, ERJ145XRJ FOR P3D4 Aircraft Light Issues

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me why when i try and changed something in my aircraft.cfg and go to save it it pops up saying this.

Access to C:\Program Files\ Lockheed Martin\Prepar3Dv4\Sim Objects\Airplanes\FeelThere ERJ135LRv2\Aircraft>cfg was denied...

Thanks

That would likely be because the "C:\Program Files" and "C:\Program Files (x86)" paths are privileged in Windows and require Admin rights for just about everything other than "Read".

There would be a need to elevate the editing tool to "RunAs" admin, or login to Windows as an admin.

Could also be Anti-Malware holding a lock on the file, or P3D itself if it is running in the background.

The best option to avoid these sort of issues is to not install P3D to the "C:\Program Files" path.

I appreciate the info.. it seems Feelthere puts out the ERJ for preparv4 and they blame the lights not working on the ERJ 145 on prepar or the end user instead of having a hot fix to fix the problems and thier lack of not helping on thier forum and being rude with no empathy but they gladly take your money and then leave you hanging to fix the issue yourself I call that lazy and shortsighted my last purchase from them...

Do you have the "aircraft lights illuminate runway" box checked in the P3D menu?

If you turn on the lights and look at the acft in the exterior view from the front, do you see them light up?  If not, something has probably replaced the default light textures in the sim.  Unfortunately there are some third party add-on acft and/or scenery that does this without asking.

The access problem may be solved by taking ownership of the Lockheed Martin folder (and all subfolders).  But the "A" answer is to never install the sim or any add-ons in any folder whose name begines with "Program Files"
