Thread: Plan-G: Failed data installation

  1. Default Plan-G: Failed data installation

    Plan-G add-on was recommended to me so I downloaded it, installed and read the ReadMe.txt. The problem is in loading the database. I have tried this a few times and no luck. I enter the paths to the FSX Scenery.cfg and the fsx.exe program, as requested by the installer and I know they are correct. The Plan-G data installer runs a couple seconds, something flashes on the screen and goes away, and nothing is added to the map.

    I have attached the log file, and it does seem to show that nothing has been found (see all the zeroes), but does not indicate why. I tried to register on the Plan-G forum, which obviously would be a better place to resolve this, but I never receive the Activation e-mails that are supposedly sent out, after several tries. Not in my inbox or junk mail folders.

    I had a problem like this a while ago, I forget what I did but I went on the Plan-G website and got the answer and it fixed it.

    On this subject have you looked at Little Nav Map, it is a similar type program?

    Don't forget, the Scenery.cfg it wants is NOT the reserve, installation file stored in the root FSX folder. It needs the active, actually in-use, file contained in the folder C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\FSX

    Hope this is some help...

    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!

    Hi PhantomTweak, Thanks for the info about active Scenery.cfg. Will try that ASAP. As for Plan-G forum activation email issue, looks like Tim Arnot has to manually send out the messages and he apparently only does that once a week.

    I run Windows10, and the active scenery.cfg is in Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX. After I entered that path, the data build for Plan-G seems to be working.

    Easy way to tell if the Scenery.cfg file you found is the "in-use" file: Pick any add-on scenery you like, and add it into you sim's Scenery Library, as normal. Once you've added it, and you can see it showing up in the Scenery library's listing, close the sim. Open up the Scenery.cfg file you suspect of being the active file. Scan through it for the name you just added to the Library. If it's there, anyplace, yes, that's the right Scenery.cfg file.
    If it's NOT there, that aint it
    Look through your directories until you DO find the active file, then use that path for Plan G. You will most likely need to set the folders to Show Hidden Files and Folders or you won't see it anywhere. You won't even see the folder it's in, most likely.

    Good luck!
