Help Please with Google Earth and FSX

#1
I am running FSX Acceleration on WIN7.

As far as I can see I have installed all the files in the right place.

I have the two.dll files installed and have modified my panel folder and panel.cfg for the Aircreation.

I have modified the dll.xml to add the two dll's as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0">

When I start FSX and run the EarthProxy.exe I get the Start and Open KML Files FSX shows a small black rectangle in the upper left of the screen. The Google Earth scenery does not show.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, Bob.

Yes I had Google Earth Pro running. The black rectangle is the GE View in my panel.cfg window. I have:
Window05=GE View

//--------------------------------------------------------
[Window05]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=110,90
window_size_ratio=1.000
position=0
visible=1
ident=

gauge00=GE VIEW!Compound_Rotation, 0,0,110,90

The size is 110, 90 which is the size of the black rectangle. I just tried it again and the Google Earth scenery does not show and tghe black rectangle shows up.

Any help? Thanks, Bob.

I just reread the pdf installation file and it says to edit the kml.xml file. There is no kml.xml that I can find. Where is it and how do I edit it? What does the edit consist of?

Thanks, Bob.

That isn't the view. The entire point of the product is to sync Google Earth with FS so that you fly in FS and view in Google Earth.

Thanks. Here is what t e installation pdf says and I quote:

One-time installations
 Install HttpX.dll and XMLTools.dll modules
o Copy HttpX.dll and XMLTools.dll to Modules folder
o Edit kml.xml file
 Install Compound_Rotation.xml in each aircraft you fly
o Copy Compound_Rotation.xml to Panel folder
o Edit panel.cfg

Bob.
