You may have hit the magic limit of the scenery.cfg file of approx 322. Try removing some of the other scenery below the max number you now have and see if it lets you install this scenery.

Hi JimI'm not sure if this is helpful but in FS2000 there is a limit of 332 enteries that FS reads from the Scenery.cfg file. Adding more entries doesn't do anything.I didn't know, (and don't know), if this issue is the same within FS2002 or not but it sounds like it is to me.I hope this helpsKen

BTW: I almost forgot to mentionBeing a bgl is a bgl, you can seriously cut down the amount of Scenery.cfg entries by placing ALL (or many of) of those add-ons into a simple Scenery directory structure and then ONE entry for them all.I hope this help too.Ken
