    Not sure all of these are Required to run FSX but tend to leave Unknown Issues alone.

    Thanks

    Paul.
    They are. Don't touch them...

    Re-install from that folder I showed you in the last link anyway. Who knows, one of them may have gotten corrupted.

    According to this tutorial:
    https://www.windowscentral.com/how-q...ion-windows-10

    I have these .NET versions. Who knows, you may be missing one of them - they have been amassed over many years and for different applications.

    2.0.50727.4927
    3.0.30729.4926
    3.0.30729.8795
    3.0.4506.4926
    3.0.6920.4902
    3.0.0.0
    3.5.30729.4926
    4.8.04084
    4.0.0.0

    If all else fails, verify the integrity of your FSX:SE files using the Steam application. First I suggest disabling your UTX USA (just use the Quick Disable function in the setup tool) so you don't lose the UTX files and textures. Then in Steam go to Library and scroll down to Microsoft FSX:SE. Right click on it and select Properties. Then select Local Files, and finally click on the Verify Files. The Steam App will re-download any missing or corrupted files. This is a frequent go-to fix for common FSX:SE errors.

    Other than what I have posted here I actually have very little experience with those errors. So if you are still stuck I suggest opening a new thread with a more specific title of your issue to make your issue more visible to others.

    Hi TextRich. thanks for reply.

    Have done as suggested, but as you know sometimes you have to wait a Couple of Hours to see if It Is working correctly.

    Thanks

    Hello everybody. this is where I have got to so far. AGAIN.


    Have a new FSX STEAM EDITION Installed (steam crashed Yesterday for whatever reason, no explanation)


    Have Installed Ultimate Terrain USA VERSION 2 and Ultimate Terrain EUROPE 2 and now trying to get them to Run

    This is supposed to be the entry to Change FSX Location:


    C:\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX It also shows a single GREEN CHECK BOX. on the First screen.


    But when Screen closes am told:
    The FSX SCENERY.CFG orFSX.CFG file(s) could be located at the expected location below:


    C:\Users\paulc\AppData\roaming\Microsoft\FSX\SCENERY>CFG


    This is a Critical problem. Please visit the Ultimate Terrain
    support forum at: www.simforums.com/forum

    Hope this lot makes sense this time.

    Thanks.

    Paul.

    I think you mistyped SCENERY.CFG as SCENERY>CFG. The USA and Europe tools may have different settings so make sure the settings for Europe is the same as USA's.

    Hi TextRich, thanks for reply.

    Don't think I know what I'm doing anymore.

    Ultimate Terrain USA, I think is working, not 100% sure although I can only seem to get One GREEN CHECK BOX when using the Command Lines for the FSX entry.

    Ultimate Terrain EUROPE, Shows Two boxes, One of which you have to run Twice to Install and the other, Run Once for the Lights to Install.

    However, Just took a trip from London Heathrow to berlin Just to try out, but when you get across the English Channel the Scenery is non existent? Looks pretty Basic. Mainly green grass.

    Also still having Problems with the Runtime errors, Flight Crashes after about an Hour with Runtime Error Messages.

    Not sure what to do next?

    Going out shortly, so will be back at it again in the Morning.

    Thanks

    Paul.

    I haven't followed this thread, but for what's it worth:
    even disregarding the propable typo (SCENERY>CFG vs SCENERY.CFG), this is NOT the correct location of the active scenery.cfg.
    The correct location is C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX\scenery.cfg.

    I personally have hit my personal limit for this thread, especially for someone who states he doesn't even know what he is doing anymore. PERSONALLY in your situation with my level of computer ability I would uninstall everything UTX and FSX:SE (but keep Steam), delete all boxed and Steam FSX registry entries I can find, re-install FSX:Steam, run it to make sure everything is working, and then re-install and test the two UTX add-ons one at a time.

    How to fully uninstall FSX:SE (but it doesn't tell you how to delete Windows registry entries):
    https://dovetailgames.kayako.com/Kno...cle/View/47/14

    Two UTX threads that likely pertain to your situation (including how to remove registry entries):
    https://www.simforums.com/forums/utx...opic53163.html

    https://www.simforums.com/forums/sol...opic52063.html

    I'll totally understand if it is too much computing for your liking. There is always the new Microsoft Flight Simulator and so far it has been doing a pretty good job of not requiring so much computer tinkering compared to the older simulator. In addition its default scenery pretty much makes most FSX scenery add-ons obsolete in terms of visual quality (if not always accuracy) Whatever you end up doing Paul I hope you get all the stable simming time you deserve in the end.

    Hi TextRich, thanks for reply again.

    Not Impressed with the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 as previously stated.

    OK, Have done exactly as you suggested in your Last Post by Uninstalling everything UTX and FSX:SE. and keeping Steam.

    When Reinstalling and running FSX the first messages I get are Scenery.cfg's 121 to 129 canot be found. I have ignored this previously and carried on with the Install proccess because I thought it would be present when loading FSX for the first Time when completed.

    Have run FSX for a Couple of Hours now and it seems to be running fine.

    But, here's the but, Firstly when trying to load Ultimate Terrain (UTX-Usa-23) does the Original UT have to be Present or is this a completly new UT.

    And despite my best efforts and following the advice of others on the Forum am still having problems with these Command Lines as other Forum Members have Suggested

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX\scenery.cfg

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX\scenery.cfg (GUESSING ONE OF THESE FOR THE LIGHTS)

    C:\Users\paulc\AppData\roaming\Microsoft\FSX\SCENERY.CFG

    All I get is The specific FSX path is not valid. The new path will not be saved if you exit now. Are you sure you want exit ? YES/NO

    Even when continuing IT doesn't Install properly.

    Thanks for all your previous help and assistance, really much appreciated.

    If I don't get it working soon I think I'll be going back to my Trainset.

    Best regards

    Paul.

    Sorry I wasn't more explicit Paul: you need to FULLY UNINSTALL FSX. The 1st link in my post (Dovetail Games, which used to distribute FSX:SE) tells you how to do that. You also need to delete registry entries before you re-install FSX:SE, as described in one of the other links I sent you in my last reply. Your errors posted are exactly what I knew would happen when one does not fully uninstall FSX:SE. Using Steam isn't enough.

    Glad to help, and I also am not pleased with MSFS in its current state, but at least you won't have to do so much legwork with your computer. At least you have your train set as a fallback hobby.
