    Unfortunately, I don't see this sub-folder either on the program disks 1 or 2, nor in the program files stored on the hard drive. What is the typical name of one of your files in the Redlist directory?

    Malcott is alking about fsx-Steam. Has nothing to do with your disk version.

    As explained in the thread:
    Simconnect is part of fsx. If fsx runs, simconnect is installed.
    It is installed as part of the fsx install.
    There is nothing for you to install manually.


    As also explained.:
    ActiveSKY needs the simconnect of fsx SP2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So your previous post where you say: I uninstalled SP2, then installed ActiveSKY. Makes very little sense. We already told you you neeed SP2 several times.

    I also explained how to get this done:
    Uninstall all your payware addons.
    Uninstall FSX completely and properly.
    Reinstall fsx properly
    Install SP1 and 2

    Uninstalling properly means doing it from Windows---Control Panel---AddRemove Programs.

    And reinstalling means: USING THE INSTALLER ON THE DISK.
    (so NOT just copying an old fsx folder!!!!)

    (You said earier you reinstalled fsx
    But later you said "thank god I have it running again". Which sounds like you are trying to keep your old install running, and like you did not reinstall at all.

    You said several times "I don't have a Licence Key".
    Whatever do you mean??
    No key for Accel?
    Or no Key for FSX at all ????!!!
    EXPLAIN !!

    As said above, if you want Active SKY to work you will have to:
    Uninstall all your payware addons.
    Uninstall FSX completely and properly.
    Reinstall fsx properly
    Install SP1 and 2

    Btw, you say: "I am computer illiuterate".
    That is never a problem. People can learn after all.
    But with you I get the feeling you decided: "I'm never gonna learn so I'm not even going to try.". Because you just are asking the same questions over and over in his thread.
    Try a bit harder.

    I think I've figured out what went wrong. Once I downloaded the 2-files, SP1 and SP2, I didn't do anything more to them. They were just stored in my PC waiting for me to do something. I repeated the whole process over, and discovered this to be true.
    Now the question is, what do I do with them? Where are they supposed to reside? I assume somewhere withing the FSX program files, but I don't know where.
    One at a time, tell me what to do with SP1 (fsx_sp1_ENU), an Application file.
    Next, SP2 (fsx_sp2_ENU), a Windows Installer file.
    Thanks in advance.

    For SP1....run the .exe it will do the installing to your Sim automatically. Once it's done, you can start FSX to make sure that it still operates. Now shut FSX down and do the same procedure with SP2.

    Installed AS16 and now they both talk to one another. Will take a test flight soon.
    Thanks again to everyone who tried to help. I'm just glad to get through it OK.
