MSFS ADDON ORGANIZER

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi! Thanks for another great tool! I've used Prepar3D Addon Organizer for a long time. Just downloaded and have been setting up MSAO. The only issue I have so far is I get a warning dialog every time I start it saying it seems my exe.xml file is broken. It comes up two times but after closing the warnings the tool works fine. What is it telling me I need to do?

Hello Bruce,

what message is that exactly? And do you even have an exe.xml (=what does it look like)?

The file should be in the same folder where the UserCfg.opt resides.

OK, that file is indeed broken, it looks like a mixture of two files (the simconnect.xml and the exe.xml), plus the XML format itself is broken too.

This is what your exe.xml should look like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="1,0">
  <Descr>Launch</Descr>
  <Filename>exe.xml</Filename>
  <Disabled>False</Disabled>
  <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad>
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>FSUIPC7</Name>
    <Path>E:\XX - MSFS2020\My_MSFS_Stuff\FSUIPC7\FSUIPC7.exe</Path>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <CommandLine>-auto</CommandLine>
    <NewConsole>False</NewConsole>
  </Launch.Addon>
</SimBase.Document>

And this is the default SimConnect.xml, just in case

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>

<SimBase.Document Type="SimConnect" version="1,0">
    <Descr>SimConnect Server Configuration</Descr>

Thanks so much Oliver! When I get home I’ll fix it and let you know if for some reason it’s still broken. Odd thing is I’ve been flying MSFS like that. FSUIPC7 has acted funky to me in controls assignments though. Maybe this was the problem.
