• 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.

MSFS AIFP for MSFS

It would be helpful if someone could translate the error message.

In any case, AIFP expects to find MSFS aircraft in either the Official or Community folders in standard Asobo folder/file format.
 
It just says 'click next to ignore the error', and as he states the Official/OneStore folder does not exist if you have the steam edition, which supposedly is what the program is looking for. For Steam it is Official/Steam instead.

I can't verify since I bought on the Microsoft store.

Surely there's a description of the error as well. Can you provide a translation of the full message.

I.e. if you click the Details button there will be more information there, above the "Loaded Modules" which I assume isn't important.

Tjoeker is perfectly right.
The error message is generated by my German Windows, sorry.

Here is the google translation of the message:
Unhandled exception in the application. Click on "Next" to ignore the error and continue the application. If you click "Exit", the application will exit immediately.
Part of the path "E: \ SteamLibrary \ Official \ OneStore" could not be found.


Upon clicking "Next" the empty aircraft list is shown:

The important part of the message was the sentence before 'click next to ignore the error'.

Development Release 3.4.0.7 just posted

Thanks for reporting jdiegel. That should not happen regardless of the folder structure.
 
Hi, thanks for the update.
The error message doesn't appear any longer and the selection of aircraft works perfectly.
However, even after carefully reading chapter 4.8 and eliminating any FS 2020 generated traffic I wasn't successful up to now in creating my own traffic.
I selected standard Asobo A320neo, made a flight plan for Aerosoft EDLP, 24hrs, Take Off at 1000UTC, two legs from EDLP to EDLP. I'm quite sure the airport fullfills all prerequisites as parkings, taxi and runway paths, links, hold shorts etc.
AIFP creates a traffic package in the community folder. Anything looks as expected, but the aircraft won't show up.
May be there is annother issue with the steam version. Could you provide a configuration (aircraft, airport, flight plan etc.) which I could try?
Sorry for my impatiance,
Regards, Joachim

Since I don't have the Steam version, sending you a FP that works on the MS version would prove nothing. It would be better if you posted your traffic file so that I can attempt to determine where the problem lies.

Others have reported that only IFR FPs work with MSFS. Also, while it's not normally a problem, I'd suggest you use two airports and assign flight numbers - just in case ...

Otherwise, the Traffic file looks fine.
