I have finally managed to recompile Bgl2Xml GUI and Bgl2Xml Command line. I hope they will work with all version of the sim now but do need testing. They are both in this zip: http://www.mediafire.com/file/695op9anka0bxmk/Bgl2Xml All.zip

There are two executables in the zip along with a bunch of supporting files:

Bgl2Xml_GUI.exe. You need to run this as administrator by right clicking on it. I will see if I can remove that requirement
Bgl2Xml.exe. This is the command line version and does not need to be run as administrator. Format of the arguments is shown in the window if you just run it:

Many thanks for testing these

The non-GUI program gives the box you imaged above when starting. I haven't had a chance to check further.

Norton jumped all over it and quarantined most of the dlls.
I got the action flagged but maybe your antivirus software doesn't pop up and tell you what it's doing.

As I think about this it may be another one of these security things those libraries have been around for ages and are either mine or Arnos. They are all in ADE as well

Jon, I installed and ran both exes without difficulty (win 10/64). But I don't have Norton. Windows defender doesn't have a problem with your files.

Depending on where you place it,... Norton would be all over it....

I have placed it outside the Program Files folders (C:\MSFS\FS Design Tools\) and I have Norton. Everything worked here as designed. You will still need to run it as Admin. and "Unblock" (right-click - Properties) on the executable.

There may come a time when we will no longer be able to supply software without expensive digital signatures :( At least we are still at threat level 1 :)

After twenty minutes clicking on "restore" I was able to run it.
Now, what was the original post?
Oh yes, works fine for FSXA / Windows 7.

The new bgl2xml works fine, however looks like afcad surface type definitions need updating for p3d v4 as some of them have 3 digit numbers in them which give error when compiling xml with bglcomp.

The program is just extracting whatever is in the bgl file. Are you asking that it change things or something else?
