    Thanks.

    The FSX Steam version installs by default to one of two places:

    C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX

    or:

    Steam\Steamapps\Common\FSX

    Note that your AppData folder may be hidden and you'll need to set your folder options to Show Hidden Files to see it.

    Hopefully, Now it will work properly?

    I'm sorry to tell you this, but the UTX installer (version 2.3) is working very beautifully on my system. After I log into my Flight1 account via the installer it asks me to locate the folder where my FSX:SE is. Locate the FSX folder and it will install there. You may have to click on a button on the installer that says, "Select Folder..."

    You may want to write down all good ideas on this thread so you can try them without people repeating themselves or other posters.

    Unfortunately Steam cannot have the FSX:SE folder independent in C:/ or it won't work. That is the only major file structure difference between it and boxed FSX. As long as you can remember Steam/steamapps/common/FSX you will be fine.

    Hi TextRich, thanks for reply.

    Think I now have this working correctly, but just to Confirm:

    1. the Acceleration Disk from FSX Gold Edition is NOT Required for this FSX Steam Edition?

    2. Have been told Ultimate Terrain X USA does work with FSX SE.

    However I cannot seem to Install this as I get a Message saying FSX cannot be found?

    A hint as to how to install this would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks to all that have been helping with this.

    Regards

    Paul.

    For your item #1:

    The Acceleration disk is definitely NOT - repeat NOT - required. Do not even attempt to install it.

    FSX SE is already FSX Acceleration.

    Jorgen is correct, Paul.

    I just went out of my way to attempt to re-install UTX version 2.3. I got an error message too. What you need to do is to right-click on the installer's EXE (in the Scenery Solutions folder) and select Run as Admin. Don't worry, as long as you trust the program, it is totally safe, and it only needs to be done once. The installer will then better locate the FSX:SE files. Please see the attached screen shots for proof that UTX 2.3 does indeed work with FSX:SE. The second photo won't appear unless you run the installer as Admin.

    Hi Jorgen & TextRich, thanks for reply.

    When Installing Ultimate Terrain X USA, when it loads their are normally 3 Green Ticked Boxes to say everything loaded is OK

    This Time I loaded as Administrator and still got message "Cannot Find" and was advised this is a Critical Error and that I should contact WWW.simforums-com/forum

    Going to give this a rest for a Couple of Days because this Is really beginning to do my Head in!!!

    I think I have been at this for a couple of Months now?. Thanks for all help.

    Best regards

    Paul.

    Do you have the latest UT installer?
