FSX Module Loading Question?

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who cannot load any gauges that requires fssound.dll. He has the fssound.dll in the main FSX folder as well as in the Modules folder. I have the same configuration. I can load any gauge that requires fssound.dll. My question is - Is there any log file or way to determine if a module such as the fssound.dll is actually loading in FSX? There is no error that shows. He just cannot see any gauge that requires fssound.dll. He has tried installing the dll in the dll.xml file also with no help. I do not have it loaded in my dll.xml. Any help sure would be appreciated. Thanks, regards, Bob.

Try to import the .dll file into the %apps%microsoftFSX folder and see what that does. worth a try :-smile12. type %apps%microsoftfsx in your "RUN" bar to bring it up. Good luck

Hi Kris. I looked in Regedit on my system and found the fssound.dll was registered in FSX. I asked him to check his registry for it. Will doing what you suggest actually add it to the registry if he does not have it registered? Thanks and best regards,Bob.

Hi Kris. Thanks for the info on the article. I don't think that is the problem as I don't have it in my dll.xml file and neither does he. He has tried putting it in the dll.xml file too and it did not work either. He does not show fssound.dll as being registered at all. I do and mine works OK. We are no experts in the Registry. I found an article at:http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108199Would this work to register the dll in Windows? Does it have to be registered in the FSX folder,as mine is? Best regards, Bob.

Hi Kris. That line does not work. My, and my friends, exact path is:C:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesMicrosoft Flight Simulator Xdo we have to type in:%apps%Microsoft GamesMicrosoft Flight Simulator Xat the "Run" bar? What happens then? Should we get a place to type in fssound.dll? Thanks, regards, Bob.
