• 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.

Bgl2XML - System.MissingMethodException

The GUI version works without problems but I need the commandline tool because I want to use it in a workflow.

Has anybody a suggestion how I can get Bgl2XML running on my system? Does it perhaps need a special .NET version?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

What version are you using?

I don't think Version 1.7 ever made it on your web site. If I download Bgl2Xml I get Ver 1.6

The current Bgl2Xml is

Application 01.07.5496.19490
Engine 04.67.5496.19486

but it is in 2 zips over in the old Beta Folder. They are titled

Sorry Guys - I went AWOL on this one for a while. I need to make 1.7 available :oops:
Attached is a zip containing 1.7 Be aware that the command line parameters for Bgl2Xml may have changed. Run the exe and check the help that appears
