    You need to use Compile, that creates the BGL

    For questions and support on ADE, you really should go to the official support forum, found here:

    That is because the AD4 file is not recognised by FSX. AD4 files are the basic raw file that is created when you first save the work and then is subsequently used by ADE to save further changes.

    When you compile it should produce, depending on what your compile options are set to, a single .bgl file that contains the complete airport or multiple .bgl files that contain the various elements of the airport - the airport runway/taxiway layout, objects used (e.g any added buidlings) etc.

    To find where you have saved the compiled file(s) start ADE, go to the Settings Menu, click on the Options entry - a new info window will open. Click on the Projects tab - this list the options available to you regarding how and where to save your work. It will show you the current options and paths in use.
    Note also the option tick under the last entry field regarding using separate airport and object .bgl files - this entry determines, as I mentioned above, whether you get a single or multiple .bgl files.
    Regards

    The work is saving to the projects file but NOT in bgl format...only ad4 so I know I'm missing something but cant figure out what.

    That is not compiling, that is saving. There is a difference in ADE.
