  1. I just went to the link you referred to with both the dll.xml and exe.xml ahd it said that there were no errors in either file. Thanks for the help and link. I guess I will have to look elsewhere. Any suggestions? I just opened the files in notepad++ and it also didn't show anything different except it yellow highlighted the ? in the first line at each end. I don't understand this program very well since I just downloaded it at your suggestion.
  2. I have included my dll.xml file and pictures of my problem. I have attached four pictures. Picture "1st startup aOK" shows starting up FSX without the dll.xml file active in the roaming folder. It shows a normal screen and I then startup a flight. "1st startup bOK" shows the menus across the top as normal but without all of my addon programs showing. "2nd startup screen with dll.xml" showing the extra picture of the aircraft on the screen which also causes slow loading of the sim and menu bars not working but still loading with everything slow in the sim. "2nd startup flight with dll.xml" in sim shows all of my menus working properly but with slow loading of scenery and panel. I am puzzled for sure. Check out my dll.xml file and see if you see any errors.

  3. I have been fighting for weeks to fix an assumed corrupted dll.xml file that changed after an addon. I renamed it and ran FSX without one and still had my menus but without the addons, except the REX WX Advantage Radar in the addons pull down. I must have another file that is allowing the menus to show while flying but I can's find out where. Any help would be appreciated. I also have an out of place picture of the aircraft picked when I choose another airport from the startup screen. Even without the dll.xml file active. Must be simple but not for me. I need help.....fisheye
  4. If you have an NVidia video card then download their NVidia GEforce Experience software as it includes a free video recorder that doesn't put any load on the CPU and works great. I have been using it for at least six months without a problem and great videos without stuttering and pauses.
  5. When this happened to me I found that if I start task manager with ctrl-alt-del then FSX re appears magically for some reason and the task manager goes to the background. fisheye
  6. I sure hope you are right because I just went through my folders and found 7,672 texture.cfg files that most need changing. Impossible for me to do without a batch file to use. fisheye
  7. This is a very interesting topic and one that I never heard of before. However after checking just my aircraft folder I realize that this task is daunting at the least. What is needed is a batch file to make these changes because there are many hundreds if not thousands of lines of code to change. Just one of my airbus aircraft had over thirty aircraft that had a texture folder that needed this change and that is only one of many hundreds on my particular system If I was sure of how to write a batch file I would do it myself but at my age my memory is a little shy of this ability without much research. fisheye
  8. Now for the Monkey wrench; I have the opposite problem. I had a C: hard drive crash and installed a new one. I had installed FSX Acceleration on the D: drive which was OK. I then reinstalled Windows 7 Pro 64 on my C:/. I installed my C:/ backup from the external Seagate USB Backup drive using their software. To create the registry I had to reinstall FSX and Acceleration first then I reinstalled FSX Steam. Now I have the opposite problem with Steam not sensing FSX Boxed installed and changing the names to FSX_SE. Now it is using the same folders as the boxed version and has over written and mixed up all of the configuration files like the fsx.cfg, scenery folder, pictures folder, and many more. I have uninstalled FSX-SE twice but nothing changes on the next install. If there is a file that steam searches for when having a parallel copy of FSX installed then it is not finding it on my machine. This whole thing has created quite a mess. fisheye
  9. I am surprised that no one has posted any replies to this message. I for one would love to see this utility completed as it is always a chore to pause the flight to go to the map and find the ILS freq before landing. Don't give up on this idea, it is something that I am sure many will find very useful like myself. Norm
  10. I think that this is jumping the gun with David because I have bought everything he has built and am very satisfied. I don't know what the problems you are facing are but I am sure that someone here will be able to help. Have you tried to use his email address to send a personal message, that always worked for me. IRIS - David Brice [mailto:davidb76@hotmail.com.au] I know that David will make things right, he always has. fisheye
  11. I am trying to build a panel to match a friends real L-39 Albatros. I need to find a Cabin Pressure and Volt/Amp gauge to complete the panel. I have another friend that found pictures on the net of the two gauges that I have attached here. I wish I could build them myself but don't have the knowledge. Any Help will be greatly appreciated.Norm
  12. I have also been having the same problem and read the fix but don't understand how to make it work and still have the welcome screen on the left side as before. Please help. Norm at www.simflite.com
  13. Tom,This utility really works great from the desktop, I like it a lot. On your next revision is it possible to have a menu listing for AI aircraft for those of us that are trying to change out flyables for better frame rates? Your Editor at Large, Maury Pratt, is a member of our group here in San Diego and will be giving software demonstrations at our meeting on the 12th of December. You can read about it in our news letter at www.simflite.com We welcome individuals that are interested in the hobby and live in the area.Thanks,Norm "fisheye" Flowers
  14. Chris, I am about to reinstall FS9, nothing works. I followed your instructions and have a new default flight and the plane still vanishes when I turn on the strobe lights or insturment panel lights.It must not be related to FSW or your fixes should have worked, unless it has something to do with the new runway lighting I chose from the menu in FSW. Thanks for all of your help anyway,Norm
  15. Thanks again Chris,Tried that but still have the problem. Plus I tried to change the "creat a flight" window to something other than the one in FSW but it still comes up as the default screen. Looked in my "flights" and was going to delete it but it was not there.?? Maybe I may have to reinstall FS.Norm
