• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

I've written this small tool to enable the continued use of FSXKML after Google Earth changed its KML format ever so slightly.

There is only 1 file here and no special installation is necessary. It can be run from anywhere.

You must however run it as an Administrator as it writes some values to the registry (file locations etc) as it doesn't use a seperate .ini file. If you dont do this, it will return a error.

If you want to run the full functionality, you should set the FSXKML location and the location of the fsx_kml.ini file as well (usually in c:\windows).

If you do set the file locations, when you choose Exit from the menu (and only when you choose Exit) then the program makes a backup of the .ini file in its current location and changes the FSXKML file locations in it and fires up FSXKML so that you can edit straight away.

No Changes are made to any file except the KML file you choose to convert and the .ini file that is backed up.

Have fun with this and hope it helps!

I've run this on a x64 Win 7 Enterprise machine and it works fine - should work on everything else.

Written using VB 2012 and .Net 4.5 so you might need libraries for that if it asks.

This is version 2 and has been updated for .net 4.5.
