facepalm I..... didn't. Alright, I deleted the entries, now I'm going to delete and reinstall the SDK again.
I was actually looking at it right now, specifically the 'TRUSTED" addons. Scrolling down, I see that all my panels/gauges for my add-on aircraft end with =2. The SDK tools do appear on the list as well, but they end in =1. Might this be the problem? (Once or twice the dialog box popped up and I enabled them)Hello...
Can you show what the fsx.cfg shows now?
<Launch.Addon> <Name>Traffic Toolbox</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D SDK 1.4.4747.0\Environment Kit\Traffic Toolbox SDK\traffictoolbox.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Object Placement Tool</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D SDK 1.4.4747.0\Mission Creation Kit\Object_Placement.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon>
Alright....... link to .cfg, dll.xml and exe.xmlMy suggestions is to post your FSX.cfg, DLL.xml and EXE.xml here on this Forum, so someone can have a look at the definitions, otherwise it will be difficult just by guessing to determine the Problem!
I did install that SDK, however nothing has changed.It has been mentioned several times on this thread that you should download the Prepar3D SDK 1.4.4747.0 from this site and install that one. It is not obvious to us if you have followed those suggestions!
Alright.... this is getting really wonky. I (backed-up and) deleted my .cfg and FSX made a new one for me. Upon bootup I had to allow the modules to run. That was a hopeful sign. Also, when the menu opened the MUSIC also started (it never does nowadays), plus an informational sign showing off a few cool things about the SDK. That was a VERY hopeful sign. However, booting up into the actual flight mode, there was still NOTHING THERE. I rebooted several times (losing the informational sign in the process) but they still didn't show up.Looking at you configuration files, I could not find any Errors, strange so far. Everything looks okay from the distance, although I dont know FSX-SE. I would suggest you the following proceeding:
If not, then it will be impossible to determine your Problem from the distance, something is strange in that case and has to do something with your Setup somewhere!
- Install SimConfigBackup from the link I described somewhere above, if not done already so.
- Backup all your configuration files with SimConfigBackup, carefully checking that you catch all the files as desribed on the Website of SimConfigBackup (by Peter Rosendahl).
- Create a copy of "FSX.cfg" just to be 100% certain and save this copy.
- Delete "FSX.cfg".
- Start FSX-SE, this will create a new "FSX.cfg". You will have to confirm again all Gauges and Modules, but this is worth the Trial.
- See now what happens, you should see and have in the Menu-bar of FSX-SE an Menu-Option "Addons" click on that and see if you see the Modules from the SDK.
(sorry for the late reply, I've been really busy lately)Ok, here goes nothing...
Remember to always make a back-up copy before you edit, or change, any of these files!
Also, ONLY ever use NotePad, which comes with Windoze, or NotePad++, a freeware which works very nicely for this sort of thing. ANY other program could add symbols you can't see that would mess the file up badly.
Only make ONE change at a time, then save the .cfg file off, and start FSX to check out the effect of the change.
Ensure FSX is completely and totally closed before you open the FSX.CFG file for editing.
Just a little side note: I went in and separated each heading's entries from the next heading by putting a CR (carriage return, or enter key stroke) between. Like this:
That makes it easier, for me, to locate each heading as I look for them. They're not all crowded one atop the next this way, which, for me, makes it harder to separate them out.
Here we go!
In your FSX.cfg file try these:
First, try changing the following line under the heading
It's the last entry under that heading, just before the heading [PANELS}.
Save it off, and try it. Change nothing else whatsoever. Go into a flight, and see what's shown under Addons up on the menu bar, while flying.
Another little detail that may be causing troubles:
You have 3 headings labeled
[DISPLAY.Device.NVidea etc etc etc]
Comment out the SECOND and THIRD entries. Leave the first one alone. You can either put the comment indicator in front of the two or three lines concerned, like this
OR you can delete them entirely. That means the heading and the two or three lines under each one, before the next heading shows up.
Having more than one of those headings per file can cause some interesting effects, none of which are desirable.
Another little detail that may, or may not, have anything to do with your main trouble, but which you'll probably want to correct eventually:
Under the heading
change the line
Last, but certainly not least:
Under the heading
ADD the line
This is very important. Don't skip this!
I honestly don't know that any of these changes will have any effect on your original difficulty, but they need to be made, eventually. This is as good a time as any
Let us know how "things" turn out!
