    I had FSX with SP1a. I downloaded sp2. Install report- successfull.
    Went into FSX the word tools is there. open it - nothing but fsx tool. open that - FSX freezes.

    Went to docs&settings\myname\appdata\microsoft\fsx found dll.xml
    Opened with notepad double checked all items <false> They are.

    Installed 4.60 FSUIPC

    Still just the word tools shows but no tools when I open it up.

    I run AFX - reconfiged it. my INstant scenery works fine.
    ADE works fine.

    FSDS compiles makemdl also compiled another item using .xtomdl both showed up fine in FSX.

    What else do I do? Bob

    Read the sticky. That's where I got the SP2.

    Am I going to have to uninstall ADE, AFX, and Instant Scenery and reinstall them?

    Or was the SP2 I got only for Acceleration? I got the one in the box more than 1/2 way down the wicki page.
    have the deluxe FSX. That was installed, did the SP1a, didn't work, called Microsoft, on the phone with them for 2 days, got it running fine. Asked about SP2. They said I didn't need that. Now months later I give SP2 a try, thinking that installing it was all I had to do to finish the process. Boy was I wrong!

    I did make a restore point before I installed SP2. Should I go back to that restore point and find the right SP2 if I have installed the wrong one? Bob

    check report for ade is the OWL thing right? I have it. Right now everything is working except the tools menu. I only get tools on the menu bar, click it and i get FX tool. I don't dare click on that- brain freeze.

    I just updated the Owl nest thing. all checked out except some tag. I repaired that. I doubt if that did anything for the tools but we shall see. Bob

    Hi Folks

    Bob -
    Cheers.

    FSX Version: 10.0.61355.0 (fsx-sp1.20070510-2038)
    FSX SDK version: 10.0.61472.0 (fsx-sp2.20071210-2023)

    You must install
    the appropriate SDK version update
    to match your FSX version.

    According to your ADE report, you are running FSX/SP1 with the SDK/SP2. They should both be the same, either SP1 or SP2.

    Wonderful. So what do I do to get to SP 2? Or should I bother? Can I uninstall this SP2, go back to my restore pint I made just before I installed this SP2, or look for an SP2 that matches what I have? If so where do I find the correct SP 2?

    As I said before I have the Deluxe version of FSX. This is where I got my original SDK and installed in the default location.

    I then went to SP1a but ended up where I am right now. Microsoft helped me get the proper tools working. This is where I was a few days ago when I installed THIS SP2.

    I do have a downloaded copy of SP1a waiting in the wings just in case.
    So, I need step 1,2,3 etc where to go to get what, and anyone's address so I can come over and do the wife's windows and dishes. :)

    Paul & George- Whoopie-kadoodie! Wahoo! yabba dabba doo! It worked! A heartfelt thanks to both of you. Now- addresses please so I can come over and do wives' dishes and windows.... maybe even the laundry!

    I did notice something. Just flattened an area with AFX and placed the small fence. I notice that when I get close and at a bit of an angle it dissappears. ...the whole thing..... back up a ways and it reappears. Ah small potatoes for now.

    Gentlemen- Again, thank you for your help and patience, with this crazy Yank! Bob (Now let's see what other trouble I can get myself into!)

    Hi Folks

    Congrats Bob,
    Now the fun begins. :laughing:

    ISTR something along the lines of -
    When the origin of an object
    moves out of the viewport.
    FSX culls that object from the viewport.
