    Default WinchX and P3Dv4 install issues

    I believe that others have had a problem with this as well, but their solutions (at least to me) weren't all too clear-- I hope someone who has previously had an issue with this can give me some insight.

    When trying to run WinchX.exe in P3D v4 I get an error: "This application could not be started because the side-by-side configuration is invalid, see the application event log for more information."

    In the exe.xml file, I have added:

    <Launch.Addon>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Name>WinchX</Name>
    <Path>C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D V4\SimObjects\Modules\WinchX\WinchX.exe</Path>
    <CommandLine></CommandLine>
    <NewConsole>True</NewConsole>
    </Launch.Addon>

    (I changed all instances of "WinchX!" to just "WinchX")

    ----as to the installation, the WinchX .zip file has two folders, SimObjects and Modules. The P3D v4 main folder has Modules *under* SimObjects... so does the *downloaded* WinchX Modules folder go in the main Prepar3D V4 folder, or is it merged with the SimObjects/Modules folder, which would give me Prepar3D v4/SimObjects/Modules/WinchX/winchX.exe ...?

    Provided I get this installed correctly, am I supposed to start WinchX by a shortcut to the .exe file when P3D is running, or will there be an addition to the menu bar at the top of the screen that I select?

    Any solutions are *very* welcome"--thanks!

    Scott,

    A very common mistake, when editing a .xml file, is to do it with Notepad. Notepad cannot edit such files properly, you'll have to use a proper .xml file editor.

    One such is available as freeware, called Notepad++.
