    Mine is in...

    Desktop\cbell\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX

    Just replace 'cbell' with your user name.

    Hi Julian,

    You will find it by typing in the explorer command line "C:\Users\<Your Logon>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX", assuming "C" is your "Windows" drive.

    If you only have steam, then it's the same location.

    If you have (or had) fsx-boxed, and now have also steam,
    then it's almost the same path as for boxed, just the last folder name is FSX-se.

    +1 Just in case you never had FSX boxed: For FSX steam edition: C\ProgramFiles(x86)\steam\steamapps\common\FSX-SE. If it was placed in default location.
