editing an .xml

skip d

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody...

I'm trying to turn off the blinking "MSG" light in the GPS 500 in my P3dv4.1.

It was easy to do in FSX by simply opening the "fs9gps.cab" and extracting the 500,xml. A few annotations to the

"message off" section in the .xml.....and then press "SAVE"....that worked wonderfully with FSX.

Now with P3dv4.1 I'm finding that pressing "SAVE" won't work !! I noticed that "SAVE AS" pops up a few options..


I tryed using each one of these....but still did not save the newly edited 500GPS gauge.

Is there something i'm missing...or just in way too far above my head !!

Thanks for any help !!

Is your P3D installed to C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files(X86)?

If so, the you're gonna have problems editing ANYthing inside the P3D folder.

Copy whatever you want to edit to a separate temp folder someplace OTHER than either of those two folder. Like C:\Temp, or whatever. Edit it there, save it off there, and then copy it back to your P3D folder.


Just a thought.



Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!
