Is this FSX? Did it work when you shut down and restarted ADE?

weird, there are no code changes in that part of the program that I can recall
 
Should have mentioned (wish I'd remembered to take a screenshot) after a few attempts, and before it actually opens, a sequence of little windows come up with 'K37 not found [OK]', after a few clicks on OK on (maybe five) windows it opens.
It's possible that it's my setup. Unfortunately, due to win7 being orphaned, in quick succession I've installed win10 and FSX:SE.
 
Managed a screenshot of the 'little windows'.
This one was just a two clicker before the file loaded.
It still puzzles me why it "can't find the file" when clearly, clicking "Find Now" after I've typed in ksln shows Salina Municipal.
So ADE found it, why has it lost it again?

That's weird. I just repeated this on my installation and the airport opened straight away without error. Selecting stock airports has not changed in version 1.79. The only thing I can think of is that this error arises if the path to the sim is not correct, Or perhaps it is not available for some reason. ADE finds the airport you select using a stock index which is created from the stock installation. To load the airport it adds the path to the sim scenery file to the index data which is the sub folder inside the Scenery main folder.

Yes - it is in pre-installation testing. Maybe released tomorrow if all goes well
 
I think you've nailed it.
"... error arises if the path to the sim is not correct ..."
I compared the ini files in both installations and found that FsPath in 1.78 has a trailing backslash, 1,79 doesn't.
I've added it to 1.79 and opened half a dozen random airports (not that random , all Kansas, the current project) and not had a problem.
I'll keep my fingers crossed.
 
After watching people complain that V5 is taxing their GPU too much, I've almost convinced myself to buy P3d5, because I feel like I'm missing out on all the fun.

How do the new V5 ADE features unlock? Or is that update to ADE still in the works? I just checked the download link for the 1.79 DEV version and it still shows build 7401.
