  1. Hi Jim...thanks for the prompt reply...and I do use and rely on Addon-Linker. (AOL)... a must-have app...I need to think a bit about how to use your information...first, I could just delete tthe Add-ON Bush trip that causes the error message...second, if just had to use that Bust Trip, etc. I could use AOL and disable all my Community folder and run it...Third, I guess I could trouble-shoot what is causing the Bush Trip to get the error message and just disable ithat add-on... do you see any other alternative avenues of approach?... Thanks for all your help...John H....
  2. I am using the current version of MSFS under W-10 on a gaming computer...lately, when I go to launch an add-on Bush Flight (or sometimes A MS Bush Flight) I get an error message directing me to the Content Manager for missing content ...when I go to the CM, there is no missing content... Anyone know what this problem is or how to fix this problem?... Any help appreciated... Thanks, John H.
  3. Just a short update...I tried just by X52 throttle combined with my Xbox controller...worked fine, though not the ideal combination...then I treid the X52 throttle with my new Thrustmaster 1600m stick and had the same old problem... I would really like to use my X52 throttle with my Thrustmaster, though the throttle on it works fine... John H.
  4. Hi all...I think I found an article that tells how to do what Frank suggested...it can be found here... https://apteryx.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360041367673-Disable-USB-Power-Management-Selective-Suspension Unfortunately, though trying all the steps, it did not cure the problem... your mileage may vary...I am thinking that DF has nailed the problem.. the latest update from MS...I guess we can wait and see...my old XBox controller still works, as does my new Logitech 3D Pro Extreme stick... still I would like the X52 to work to compare to the 3D Pro...
  5. Frank...I went to the control panel and found power management there...it was currently on high and changed it to normal...sadly, that did not solve the problem... Did I do what you were recommending?...if not, could you please explain in more detail how to do what you recommend... Thanks, John H.
  6. Hi all...thanks for the replies...Frank, I have not tried that, but will...hopefully I can figure out how to do it...will report outcome...
  7. I am running MSFS 2020 Ver 1.12.13 under W-10 on a gaming computer...my X52 Pro is several years old but is recognized by FS and I can configure it... driver version is 8.0.213.0 (I believe)...the only problem is that when I try to increase throttle on an aircraft, the engine(s) die(s)...I think this problem began recently and I can't find the solution...even reset the X52 to its default settings in FS and that did not help... nor did reinstalling the driver... Any help appreciated... John H.
  8. In my troubleshooting, I also found the Hong Kong Int'l addon caused a problem...I believe it's called "VHHH-scenery"... I'd like to highly recommend the "MSFS AddOn Linker"... found here: https://flightsim.to/file/1572/msfs-addons-linker Once properly setup, it greatly simplifies troubleshooting the MSFS Community folder...you can selectively turn off and on the contents of the Community folder without having to delete items therein or use "dummy" Community folders......
  9. Once I updated to MSFS 1.12.13.0, the VHHH addon caused loading problems and had to delete it to get the sim to load and run
  10. Wow, DBoy....great eye/find!...that mod was what was causing all my problems...thanks for reporting it!.... Happy Holidays to all... John H.
  11. "Thanks Fielder for the prompt and detailed reply... will try your solution and report back...think I even saw something in the update install about that...humm Happy Holidays! John H." Thanks a bunch Fielder (and all)... this trick fixed the loading problem... now to figure out the gremlin that caused the problem...thanks to all the others about the debugging ideas....I do not have the San Juan Is scenery... Happy Holidays to all... John H
  12. Thanks Fielder for the prompt and detailed reply... will try your solution and report back...think I even saw something in the update install about that...humm Happy Holidays! John H.
  13. Running (or trying to) 1.12.13 on powerful gaming computer under W-10 (fully update) ....Store install initially... downloaded 1.12.13 yesterday afternoon... the D/L hung halfway through...I exited the program, restarted, and the D/L resumed and installed (I think) successfully...started MSFS and it eventually loaded...there was a long lag somewhere that I did not pinpoint.... This morning tried to load 1.12.13....it now hangs on the "New Activities" page...before the upgrade to 1.12.13 MSFS ran perfectly... Any help appreciated... Thanks, John H.
  14. After a little research, found that the most recommended first fix/check was to check your firewall and virus protection... sure enough, it was one of them...a 30G update ensued... be patient...takes awhile...
  15. Hummm...Looked around on-line...there apparently is a new Xbox app for Windows 10...I downloaded it, installed and logged in...launched the program in usual fashion... got the same old error message...tried off-line and it seemed to work and want me to configure the Sim again...did not reconfigure but launched a flight and asked for live weather and got it...does that mean I'm live again?...don't have time to reconfigure right now, but will do so and report...really weird... not sure I fully understand what's going on... John H.
  16. Hi Geoff...I am getting the same message as of 11/23...anyone know what's happening or how to fix it? I logged into the MS Store/Xbox and that didn't help.. Any help appreciated... Thanks, John H.
  17. Hi Brad...thanks for the linker...and to anone else who responds... I have a couple of questions: 1) If I create my new "Addons" folder (with subfolders) before running your program, will it move the current Community addons in to the correct new Addons sub-folders?... 2) After the initial install, can I just place all future addons in my new Addon folder? 3) After I initially install of your program, can I erase all the shortcuts in the Community folder?....saw this, I think, in one of Lost Pilot's videos...and, 4) If this does not work for some reason, can I just revert to my original Community folder and it's old file structure?... Thanks, John H.
  18. I must stand to correction on my second post above... the BD Firewall was "off" not ""on"...when turned "on" the problem reoccurred....darn... However, Fzike's fix above seems to work...thanks Fitzke!...
  19. Hi there...this morning, I have started the SIM twice with BD Firewall "on" and everything has worked fine... Wonder if there was some "glitch" on part on MS yesterday? John H
  20. To practice an approach at a given airport, simply pick that airport as your "arrival"...do not pick a "departure".... the Sim will place you on approach to the chosen airport and runway...you have no control over the length of the approach or the altitude...I think it varies by plane...still, it's a neat and useful feature...I read about this on another forum...
  21. After the latest Sim update my Bitdefender Firewall keeps sending warnings that the Sim is (I think) is connecting to the internet... I click "allow" and nothing happens...I dismiss the message and it reappears...I called BD technical support...they say it's a known issue and they are working on a fix and will let me know...the only solutions (for now) are to cut the firewall off or just let the error message exist on the screen....bummer...
  22. See this post... https://twinfinite.net/2020/08/microsoft-flight-simulator-keyboard-controls-guide/
  23. I finally found a way to d/l the Simfrom the MS Store ...if anyone is interested, please reply to this message and I will explain my method... Cheers,
  24. I apologize if this post is not authorized.... I am at my wits end...I prepaid fro MSFS 2020 Premium Deluxe from the MS Store several weeks ago... This morning I tried to download the Sim, but the Store says it can't find my registered device (desktop) to download the Sim to... my desktop is registered at the Store...apparently many others are having this problem...I have searched the MS "Help" files, including this one, which seems on point.... https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/microsoft-store-doesnt-recognize-my-device-to/fb68cafd-0f11-4d3c-bd07-aa39532ea251?auth=1&page=1&rtAction=1597757291293&tm=1597757459449 it suggested several minor fixes, including updating W 10 (which I apparently needed) ...I've tried them all and none work...MS has not provided a fix...if anyone can help I'd really appreciate it Thanks....
  25. Hello Bulva...bottom line, took a little "tinkering" but your solution worked!...thank you so much for the tip... I'm using XP 11.41 and the boxes are more in of the middle of the Settings/Graphics page and there are several "Reset Visuals Offsets"...but the very bottom one did the trick... Your help much appreciated!!...safe skies...John H.
