Abe,I removed FSX from my system to have a clean install when SP1 comes out but the problem you mention also happens with FS9 when you forget to move the RwyInfo folder (included in the zip file) to your main fs folder.Hope this helpsJean-Paul

Thanks Jean-Paul.I did copy the three files....RWYINFO.GAU,PRWYDATA.TXT and PNAVDATA.TXT in FSXGAUGES. This was acknowledged by FSX when I restarted it. Apparently the GAU file is not seeing the DATA files.The only files I found in the ZIP file were the above 3 files. Please let me know if other files or folders are included with that.Thanks again.Abe

Abe,I'm afraid I can't test this in FSX but for fs9 the .txt files should not go into the gauges folderWhen you unzip rwinfo.zip, you should end up with 2 folders :- gauges (contains rwyinfo.gau)- Rwyinfo (contains Pnavdata,Prwydata and readme)Just copy these folders with their content to your root fsx folder.Jean-PaulAsus P5W DH Deluxe - Core 2 Duo E6600@3Ghz - Leadtek 7950 GT TDH 512 - 4 x 1GB Kingmax DDR2 667 CL5 RAM - 2 x 250GB Hitachi T7K250 SATA2 AHCI - Creative Audigy 2 Value - Antec Sonata 2 Case - 450W Antec SmartPower 2.0 PSU - Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20" - Windows XP Pro SP2 - TrackIR 4 Pro

Thanks again Jean-Paul.That did the trick. I had to keep the DATA files inside their own folder. It works ok.Two more favors please. What is the best way to update the DATA without doing EACH entry one at a time?How about RESIZING the RWYINFO window? Make it smaller.Thanks.Abe

You can easily resize the gauge by changing the last two values of the gauge00=rwyinfo!v2, 2,2,207,120 entry in your panel.cfgif you replace it by gauge00=rwyinfo!v2, 2,2,103,60the gauge size will be divided by 4Concerning updating the database, I am afraid you will have to do that manually even if there must be a way of exporting the data from a spreadsheet but I haven't tried that.You can get more information in the Rwyinfo support forum : http://www.fsbuild.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=3Kind regardsJean-PaulAsus P5W DH Deluxe - Core 2 Duo E6600@3Ghz - Leadtek 7950 GT TDH 512 - 4 x 1GB Kingmax DDR2 667 CL5 RAM - 2 x 250GB Hitachi T7K250 SATA2 AHCI - Creative Audigy 2 Value - Antec Sonata 2 Case - 450W Antec SmartPower 2.0 PSU - Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20" - Windows XP Pro SP2 - TrackIR 4 Pro
