Hi Jeffery,
I am struggling on SODE. I had SODE sometimes ago in my computer and I deleted all the SODE folders inside FSX folder. I downloaded SODE v 1.4.2 and installed it. I put all the demo files in side C:\Program Files\12bPilot\SODE. I put XML file in the xml folder and put SODE_DEMO folder inside SimObjects. I got FSX running and check on the menu indicated that SODEv 1.4.2 was running. I went to LSZG and saw nothing, no jetway no other stuffs except default.
What could be wrong? I am still using Windows XP. Is that the problem?
Thanks for the help.
Regards,
Tic

Oh wow, XP!
Quickly googled the location of ProgramData on XP and it should be \Documents and Settings\All Users\ or \Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data.
I have no idea if the installer puts the stuff there are not...

I got it! I had a problem installing 1.5.3 version so I got 1.4.2 version instead. Version 1.4.2 installer put the files in ProgramFiles directory. But version 1.5.3 install on ProgramData directory.

Can v 1.5.3 be installed in Windows XP?

OMG, it is a real problem!
I did test on my Win7 computer. Installer of 1.5.3 install on ProgramData folder by default. Then I tested on V 1.4.2, it installed on ProgramFiles. When I reinstalled 1.5.3, it became installing on ProgramFiles folder instead.

This picture is the installer V1.5.3.
You can see that it install on ProgramFiles directory.

I redirected the Installer to put the files there manually. The installer ran through the end without problem. I did register to FSX. When I opened up, still no luck, nothing was there. Even the SODE was not on the menu either. :(

May be it is the farewell of my WindowsXP.

I found the log file and I capture the screen shots to show you if it is in the correct directories or not.
Here is the content in log file:

I tested on V 1.4.2 and I found that there is Add-ons> SODE 1.4.2 on the menu. But the version 1.5.3 there is nothing on the menu of FSX. Is that relevant to the problem?
I think it is not compatible to FSX in WindowsXP.

The dll and exe files in \Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\12bPilot should not be there! If you point the installer to "Program Files (x86)", all those files and the folders "data", "P3Dv3" and "P3Dv4" should be in Program Files (x86)/12bPilot/SODE.

I'd uninstall V1.5.3 and check if those files are still on the "Application Data" folder. They should be gone. Otherwise just delete those files and folders
Then install V1.5.3 to Program Files (x86)\12bPilot\SODE.

V1.5.3 was built using Microsoft Visual Studio 2015. I'd be surprised if executables wouldn't work with XP...but who knows, MS has terminated support for XP in April 2014.

I did try on another computer with Windows7 and P3Dv3. I found nothing after I put the demo files and XML to the right place, ProgramData/12bPilot. I think I might miss something that require for SODE, not the WindowsXP or Windows7 issue.
Quite a frustrating problem!

After manually creating various directories, I managed to run SODE.

However, ir gave this error:



But, Simconnect (XPack) is installed:

C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS>dir /b *simcon*
x86_Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect_1ed9da73c880e429_10.0.62615.0_x-ww_ddd7c48d
x86_Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect_67c7c14424d61b5b_10.0.60905.0_x-ww_429211e9
x86_Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect_67c7c14424d61b5b_10.0.61242.0_x-ww_35e8ee9a
x86_Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect_67c7c14424d61b5b_10.0.61259.0_x-ww_fb842f5a

lt also added two simobjectpaths to fsx.cfg:

SimObjectPaths.0=SimObjects\Airplanes
SimObjectPaths.1=SimObjects\Rotorcraft
SimObjectPaths.2=SimObjects\GroundVehicles
SimObjectPaths.3=SimObjects\Boats
SimObjectPaths.4=SimObjects\Animals
SimObjectPaths.5=SimObjects\Misc
SimObjectPaths.6=J:\!FSXAircraft
SimObjectPaths.7=J:\!AIAircraft
SimObjectPaths.8=J:\!WOAI_Aircraft
SimObjectPaths.9=J:\!FTXAI_AIRCRAFT
SimObjectPaths.10=j:\!MAIW_Aircraft
SimObjectPaths.11=j:\GAAM Aircraft
SimObjectPaths.12=SimObjects\UT2 Aircraft
SimObjectPaths.13=C:\Program Files\12bPilot\SODE\data\SimObjects
SimObjectPaths.14=C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\12bPilot\SODE\SimObjects

But, the one in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\12bPilot\SODE\ is empty.

The one in C:\Program Files\12bPilot\SODE\data\ contains only:SODE_DYN

OK, Jeffrey. I know what cause that.
I changed my FSX:AC to FSX:SE and now everything works just fine.
I think SODE works on FSX:SE, P3Dv3-4 on Windows7 up. Nothing below that works such as FSX:AC, FSX with service pack 2 together with Windows XP.
