Thread: FSX - Scenery.cfg Problems

  1. Default FSX - Scenery.cfg Problems

    Hi,
    I have been trying to reinstall FSX on my new computer and have managed to install it fine but when I first start it it comes up with the message:
    "Flight Simulator Cannot Run Without A Valid Scenery.cfg. Please uninstall and reinstall flight simulator. Click ABORT to exit flight simulator."

    This happened with my first installation so I followed its instruction but now it has appeared a second time I have not got the time or patience to obey.

    Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated.

    Yours,
    Nathan

    Try this link. It gave a good explanation of what to do for a bad scenery.cfg file http://www.fsx.co.za/showthread.php?t=7372

    Found that file thanks, have ran the program with no luck, any more ideas?

    Thanks,

    Nathan

    P.S. I have attached my scenery a copy of my cfg file (in a txt file) if that helps.

    Not at my simming puter now, but one thing I find weird for starters is the line "FS9 world Scenery" in the header of yr file.

    So, do I just change it to FSX or what. All i have done to the file is ran the "FSTscenery" file.

    Thanks,

    Ha-Ha! The first time I opened my FSXA scenery.cfg in notepad, I thought I somehow merged my FS9 version with it.
    FS9 world Scenery is OK! Dunno about the rest. Mine is for Acceleration and is different...Don

    It is strange but not by greatest concern right now as FSX is still being temperamental! Any Ideas?

    I have just installed acceleration to see if it clears anything up:

    Try replacing the scenery.cfg located here: {C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX} with the default version located in the main FSX folder.
    If you are on Win 7/Vista the doggone UAC may not have allowed it to be overwritten with the Accel install.
    so, I've attached an FSXA default scenery.cfg...Don
