  1. Hello again Symbol, I did find a folder in my P3Dv5 folder that has those 2 folders in it, the paths are these: I:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\Development Tools\Traffic Toolbox I:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\Development Tools\Visual FX Tool They look to have been made by my Traffic app, from Just Flight? (I guess?) And I found the 2 offending entries in my C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\add-ons.cfg file, but they look like this: [Package.8] PATH=Development Tools\Visual FX Tool ACTIVE=true REQUIRED=false [Package.9] PATH=Development Tools\Traffic Toolbox ACTIVE=true REQUIRED=false So, I copied the actual paths and changed the entries in the .cfg, and now everything works!! So, I assume, for some reason those paths were just entered in the .cfg wrong? BUT, instead of deleting them I decided to change the paths JIC they might be needed in the future for whatever reason. Anyways, EVERYTHING is now working, thanks so much for helping me fix this!! I think I understand how this works a bit better now, so if it happens again, I can fix it myself. thanks man!!
  2. I just checked in my Documents/P3Dv5 Add-ons folder, and this is the xml for the AI lights in there: (NOTE, the AI lights also must have made a P3Dv4 Add-ons folder because I now have one of those, and I don't and never have had V4 installed) I have no idea if everything in here is correct or not, but the path is right: <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>FSReborn AI Traffic Lights Effects Professional edition. Installed version 1.2.0, for support please visit our website at www.FSReborn.com</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>EXE</Category> <Path>I:\Program Files\AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition\FSRebornConfigChecker.exe</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Effects</Category> <Path>I:\Program Files\AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition\AI Lights Effects V5</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Texture</Category> <Path>I:\Program Files\AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition\AI Lights Effects V5\texture</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>I:\Program Files\AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition\FSRebornObjects V5</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>ShadersHLSL</Category> <Path>I:\Program Files\AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition\FSRebornHLSL V5</Path> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> Also: Is this the visual FX tool that you were referring too? Because I have no idea how it got there or how to (or if I should) remove it?
  3. Hello Symbol thanks for the reply. I'm not sure about the visual FX thing, I'm using pretty much all the same add-ons as in my previous install, nothing new, how can I check to see if I have a Visual FX tool in my P3Dv5 dir? I am installing a lot of my addons on a storage drive as opposed to my C drive though, is that what you mean by "relative paths"? Last time the addons almost filled my C drive, so I got a nice 2tb gaming drive to hold most of my add-ons, my Orbx library and stuff like that anyways, it seems to be working, I just get the error when starting the AI lights app, so if it's just a warning than I can live with it.
  4. Hello all, I have installed my P3Dv5.3 HF1 on it's own drive, and am reinstalling all my add-ons, I got some strange error I have never seen before, it says I have some random "entry" in my P3d add-ons .cfg. but i have checked and I don't see it. I have the latest AI lights installer and P3Dv5.3 HF1 is installed and working properly. I'll try to attach a pict for further support. thanks, Rob https://i.imgur.com/yvCyHYp.jpg
  5. Hey Dave, thanks for the fast reply. Should I uninstall the update? or just install the full installer over the top? Is this the one: setupP2A_2623_x64_R2_with_Navigraph_1801
  6. Hello all, I have installed P3D and MSFS on my new pc and installed the latest FSUIPC. I installed this file "Pilot2ATC_Update_2623_x64_R2" and got the app registered, but I get a message on startup: But the program starts up after I close the error, and Navigraph sees the app and updated it to the latest data. What did I do wrong? Did I install the wrong file? If so, what should I do next? thanks, Rob
  7. Hey guys, I know this is an old thread but I have a problem with getting this Global AI ship package to work on my P3Dv5.3 I followed the instructions and downloaded the xml file, and put in in the "Global_AI_Ship_Traffic_V2" folder, then copied the folder to the P3Dv5 addons folder in my Docs, an enabled it when I started P3Dv5, but I keep getting this error for some reason: thanks for any help.
  8. Oh man, this I didn't know. I'm glad you gave me a heads up!! I thought all I had to do was deactivate P3D5. So I will deactivate most of that stuff from addon manager, but I don't remember seeing the PMDG stuff in there. I always use their manager/installer. thanks for the help, it's been awhile since I have had to do this. Got it, thanks RXP!!
  9. Hello, is the correct way to do this is to: 1) Install Pilot2ATC on the new PC 2) then when it tells me it's already activated on another PC 3) to deactivate the license 4) then re-activate the license on the new install? The other PC's drives will be formatted and reused. thanks
  10. Hello, I built a new PC and am getting ready to reinstall P3Dv5 on it, so for my RXP modules, when moving them to a new PC, do I need to deactivate the license somehow first? The old PC is going to be disassembled and parted out, I will be re-using the game drives but I'm doing full formats. thanks
  11. Ok, I'll give those a try. thanks RXP EDIT:::::: That second option worked!! thanks man
  12. Hey y’all, I got 2 updates this week for my GTN and GNS I guess for P3Dv5.1, and on the second update I accidently closed the window for the GTN update, I have rebooted several times and have been waiting all day but I’m not getting a notification for the update again. This would be the second update this week for the GTN, is there anywhere I can go download it? How do I trigger this again, NOTE I use Edge and have NO IDEA how to enable RRS feeds for MS Edge. thanks
  13. ...please start manually P3Dv5hf2 I bought this plane last week and have flown it a bunch of times with no problems. After just a few days off I am now getting this error message when I start a flight with the DA62. What is this error, I don't have the Carenado SVS installed because it always tells me it doesn't start right. AFTER I get the error the flight loads and I can fly ok, but the error drives me crazy. thanks
