• 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.

Parsing Error


I've been using OBPlacerXML for some time now, & find it a great asset in scenery design.

I had a HDD crash last week & had to re install everything back onto my new HDD, but when I went to install OBPlacer, I had this error;


Choosing to ignore the problem dll, I went on to start up OBPlacer & after opening my xml file & trying to compile bgl, I got this error;


I have never had any problems installing OBPlacer before, I was hoping if anyone had come accross this specific problem before:scratchch

As It's frustrating trying to figure it out, as I have installed / uninstalled it 15 times this evening......lol.

Thanks for any info in advance:)

Try to download and install MSXML4 directly from MS. I think that will solve your problem. It seems the installer of ObPlacer XML can not install that file correctly on your PC and BGLComp needs it to be able to compile.
