    Newbie questions

    Thanks for the video, it has helped getting me started with FSW.
  5. Well Jim, being a retired EE I decided to take a closer look in side the PS and low and behold there was a loose wire. Just had to tighten it up and off we go. Boy at first was I disappointed. All is well once again.
  6. Just when I was really enjoying flying around, the screen went dim and then noticed the power supply to the laptop was cold. So the PS must be bad and will have to wait until tomorrow to call support to see if they will ship me a new one since still under warranty. Anyway it is still a Merry Christmas, I have a lot to be thankful for.
  7. Jim, got a great Christmas gift this morning. Was reading in FSDT forum last night and found someone who was having similar problems except he was using PD3v4. He was advised that GSX had to be installed for all to work. So this morning I installed GSX. It looks like my problem is resolved. KCLT, KSDF, Kmen and all the others appear to be working with Couatl reaming in the menu. Sure appreciated your help. I learned a lot from you help. Kind Regards and Merry Christmas.
  8. Ok Jim I have done most of what you suggested. Since this problem I always check the menu to see if the Couatl and its componets are showing. Most of the time after start up of default there is always Couatl showing. Then proceed to a FSDT airport and there is a 50/50 chance that airport will show up with Couatl sometimes in menu and other times no. Proceed to another FSDT and Couatl will not be present and FSDT airport is a mess. However in my case once it disappears no FSDT airport works. If only there was a way to start Couatl when it is missing in the menu would solve the problem at airport. Yes have always done this and all are active. The one thing I have not done is check for admin rights. I just reinstall the newest Addon Manager as you suggested previously and didn't get the message that started all this on my first post. Unfortunately the problem has not been solved. I have also uninstalled KCLT using the control panel and a reinstall had no problems. Went to KCLT and no couatl showing in menu and a mess on the field. The dlls are showing dll and "XML Document". I thought it has to be "XML" in the FSX folder. Jim I do appreciate all the time given trying to help me out. I will make sure using "Admin Rights" and reinstall Addon-Manager and start up of FSX-SE and see if that helps. Kind regards,
  9. Jim, that makes me feel better of why I was no longer seeing the dll. I have put back the new one that somehow was made in the FSX when I deleted the original (corrupted ?). There were a few changes from "false to true" and also added the Module FSUIPC4.dll, which the original did not have. Still have the coualt problem with FSDT with the new dll.xml. Started FSX used default startup FSDT loaded correctly, but when I changed airplanes Couatl quit working and only jetways were shown. Everything works with no problem with the exception of FSDT not working as it should "most of the time." Ok I gonna go with your suggestion and see what happens. by the way how do you change the dll.xml document file or cfg to just a xml file? Used Note++ but couldn't find under save a ..xml.
  10. Well I decided to delete the existing dll.xml and let fsx-se build a new one to compare. Started FSX and went to start up airport to develop the new dll. The difference of the two were almost similar. Decided to let FSX rebuild a new one again and now dll. does not show up in the FSX folder. Does that mean there is now a problem with scenery.cfg.? I Followed the same scenario as before but this time no dll. showing up.
  11. Jim, thanks for the reply and outline on what I should do. I can't believe I forgot about the CTD guide. It looks like I got my work cut out for me. Hey! Bill thanks for the encouragement. Know doubt Jim is the Man. You guys standby because I am sure I will have more questions.That's what makes AVSIM so great, there are always folks around for us guys that are not to Sharp in troubleshooting flight simulators.
  12. Sorry I couldn't figure out how to make an attachment to my reply. Tried insert other media but it would not work or take my attachment So here is a partial of DLL.XML. If I can figure out to send attachments I could send you the dll.xml and exe.dll if needed. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Addon Manager</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>E:\Program Files (x86)\Addon Manager\bglmanx.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>ObjectFlow.dll</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>E:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\ORBX\FTX_AU\FTXAA_ORBXLIBS\Scenery
  13. Although I am not having any crash to desktop I have received the error message below installing FSDT scenery using the addon manager. This appears to cause couatli to work only sometime with the FSDT airports. The folks at FSDT have been very helpful and state the message below is the possible solution. Unfortunately for me I am not a computer guru and not sure what I need to do with the dll.XML file. Should I just use Notebook++ and change the dll.XML file to ANSI or the first lines of the dll that reference encoding? “\dll.xml error on line 1. Position 46: switch from current encoding to specified coding not supported. This error file has been with an encoding that doesn’t match the XML header and it’s usually caused by 3rd party installation with bugs. It should be fixed by opening with an editor like free notepad ++ and save it back in ANSI format. “ Appreciate any help,
  14. I am planning to purchase Gatwick, Manchester, Stanstead, and Bristol. i will have to go thru SWREG to pay. Will there be additional charges (taxes) on US purchase?
