    Dear All:

    I'm using this registry key to get the FSX installation path:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0
    SetupPath

    Does FSX create the same registry key with all language versions?

    Will FSX create the same registry key with english, spanish, germany or french versions?

    Thanks.

    Yes it does, but there's one thing to beware: I've seen some instances where FSX has stored the path with an / on the end and others where it hasn't. So before you concatenate a path using the string, always check and add it if necessary, in case a user's path string ends differently to your development PC's entry.
