Hello, I have a need to run FSX with EZCA & FSUIPC in a new admin user account. On launching FSX, EZCA will also attempt to launch with an error. This works fine in the other user account. In short, the problem is add ons for FSUIPC and EZCA either do not launch or an Add-On menu is not available. SO TWO ISSUES: 1) When launching FSX, EZCA attempts to launch but fails with the error: Ezdok camera addon Unable to write to C:\Users\sim\AppData\Roaming\EZCA\db\general.INI. 2) The Add-On menu doesn’t appear in this new user account. (So, I cannot access FSUIPC) QUESTIONS THAT MAY BE ASKED: Are both users administrative users? Yes Have you tried right clicking and running as administrator? Yes (in both users) Is the folder, “EZCA” located at, “C:\Users\sim\AppData\Roaming\”? No Version numbers: FSUIPC 4.929 and EZCA 1.16 Microsoft Flight Simulator X Deluxe 10.0.61472.0 (fsx-sp2.20071210-2023) MY CONFIGURATION: iMac (27-inch, Late 2012), Intel i7 3.40 GHz, 32 GB, GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB VRAM, 3TB HDD Fusion OPERATING SYSTEM: (running via Boot Camp) Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) SP1 Any assistance would be appreciated! - Shaun
Hi, I always installed FSX on another partition but didn't like how it still installed files to %appdata%\microsoft\fsx and %programdata%\microsoft\fsxI have now found a workaround/solution for forcing FSX to put/use the files on another partition (or another folder).I did a quick search here but couldn't find this being posted before. Here's how it works.You download a utility from microsoft called junction, which allows you to create a fake folder/shortcut in location X which actually 'points' to folder Y on the location of your choice. It tricks windows into thinking the folder is still on (let's say) C:\, while it's actually on D:\. I tried it with FSX and it works great.So for all those who like to keep all files on one partition: 1) Download junction from http://technet.micro...s/bb896768.aspx2) Extract the junction.exe to \windows\system32\3) Open a command prompt (CMD) Via CMD you can use junction.exe, here's how it works:junction.exe "name_of_file_or_folder" "the_location_you_want_to_point_to"So for FSX, I used (with quotes): 4) junction.exe "%appdata%\microsoft\fsx" "D:\fsx\appdata\fsx"and5) junction.exe "%programdata%\microsoft\fsx" "D:\fsx\programdata\fsx" Done! I used this before installing FSX, and saw FSX creating the files on my other partition.This should, however, also work with your current FSX install, by using junction after(!) you've moved the folders. I hope this information is useful to some.
