FSXA SBX Install Problem?

#1
Once opened it after installation, it reminds me of some faults something like "check your XXX.txt files.", I don't know what's wrong with this. The SBX folder was put into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Environment Kit\Modeling SDK\FSX_GmaxGamePack\SBX315 and I use Win10 Home Edition.
I think it's a good software and I really hope I can use it with ease.

Hello:

NOTE: For use of SBuilderX with Windows-10, it is now recommended that you perform a new install of SBuilderX version 3.15 which is entirely separate from any existing SBuilderX version 3.14 installation:

I have made a full zipped version of the program, with all folders filled for immediate use without a previous installation of version 3.14:

Full SbuilderX v315

Because the resulting installation will include all required SBuilderX files, you may be able to ignore any further occurrences of this status message:

"Some textures referred to in polys.txt, lines,txt, lands,txt or waters,txt could not be copiued into the \Tools\Bmps folder"


...as this may only be due to a security configuration on a particular computer blocking SBuilderX from verifying presence of certain required files in the [SBuilderX version 3.15 install path]\Tools\Bmps folder ...during each and every SBuilderX startup.

I've downloaded the full version of SBX315, but a new problem arises, as opened, it said that an unexpected error occured, even if I clicked Yes, nothing will happen though the warning says that press YES it will continue.

Hi Again:

In [SBuilderX 3.15 install path] folder, select SBuilderX.exe, right-click, and choose "Run As Administrator"


If that does not eliminate the error message you reported above, you may find an answer in these search results:

Though running as administration, the warning still pop up, so I went to your site and found no valuable solution in PTsim forum, the first site in Google. Oh by the way, the new ''Version'' is installed in D:/ instead of C:/. So I wonder what next I should do to check what's really going on.

Please tell us which specific error / status message(s) are now appearing when SBuilderX 3.15 is "Run As Administrator".

Also, please tell us what drive letter and folder path you now have installed SBuilderX 3.15 into.

The error message was as the same as it was shown in my last photo (there was no difference in error message whether it was run as administor or not), and I installed at the root menu of D disk, it was D:/SBX315 for convenience.

Please check to see if you have a ERROR_REPORT.TXT file inside:

[SBuilderX 3.15 install path]\Tools\Work sub-folder,


IIUC, based on your latter info posted above, for your computer, that file/folder path would be:

D:\SBX315\Tools\Work sub-folder.


If you do see such a file there, please attach a copy of that file to a reply in this thread.

The only file in that folder is PROJECT_ERR.SBP and I don't know if it's what you desired, but anyway, I'll attach it (for SBP file are not allowed to upload, I changed the extension to TXT).

Hi again:

Possibly there may have been a mis-interpretation of information which is in the ReadMe315.TXT of the ZIP file I linked above ? :scratchch

The PROJECT_ERR.TXT file you attached above cites SBuilderX version 3.14; AFAIK this does not occur in SBuilderX version3.15.

DO NOT UN-ZIP OR OTHERWISE COPY THAT "SBX315.ZIP" INTO AN EXISTING SBUILDERX VERSION 3.14 FOLDER CHAIN.


You should be able to un-ZIP the "SBX315.ZIP" file linked above to a local hard drive letter, and run SBuilderX 3.15. ;)

PS: Be certain that your ZIP utility is set to "Extract Relative Paths" to preserve folder structure when un-ZIP-ing. :pushpin:

I reinstalled the new version - I ensure it's the 315 version because I deleted the old folder and unzipped the new file (SBX315.zipSBX315.zip) in the same directory and the file ReadMe315.txt was im the root path - but still again, I checked the path again and found the actually same file in it. I am confused now.

Hi again:

1.) Delete any existing SBuilderX version 3.14 and/or version 3.15 folders

2.) Place the SBX315.zip file (cited above) within the root of ex: drive D:\

3.) Use ex: WinRAR free demo version to extract (de-archive) that ZIP file with all its nested sub-folder intact

https://www.win-rar.com/download.html?&L=0


NOTE: Be certain that WinRAR is set to "Extract Relative Paths" to preserve folder structure when un-ZIP-ing. :pushpin:

You should end up with a ready-to-use install of SBuilderX version 3.15 containing all required folders and files.


4.) Browse to ex: D:\SBX315\SBuilderX.exe

a.) Right-click > choose Create Shortcut

b.) Within the D:\SBX315\SBuilderX folder, Right-click the new 'Shortcut' to SBuilderX.exe (the one with a small arrow on it)


(1) From the Right-click pop-up context menu, choose 'Properties'

(2) In the 'Properties' dialog, choose the {Compatibility} tab

(3) On the 'Properties' dialog {Compatibility} tab, Left-click [Change settings for all users] button

(4) In 'Properties' {Compatibility} tab [Change settings for all users] dialog, check 'Run this program as an administrator'

(5) Left-click [OK] button]

(6) Back on the 'Properties' dialog {Compatibility} tab, Left-click [OK] button]


c.) Within the D:\SBX315\SBuilderX folder, double-Left-click the new 'Shortcut' to SBuilderX.exe (the one with a small arrow on it)

d.) You should now be able to run SBuilderX version 3.15 as an Administrator without file / folder path permission errors

For I have never installed SBX314 before, so I checked again to use administration for ALL USERS, but still, that's now working. Maybe I should deleted the old folder and extract the compressor again? But the compressor has deleted from my laptop, I need to re-download the file again tomorrow.

Hi again:

Indeed, delete any existing SBuilderX 315 folders and follow the instructions above to 'de-compress' SBX315.ZIP from the root of a drive letter. :pushpin:

The reality is, I followed your instructions above and re-installed it and created the shortcut trying to eliminate any possible problems but it did happen again. So I'm much more confused. I searched something about SBuiler in forums in my language and some have the opening problem due to the system language, I wonder should it be the problem too?

Do you have your Windows 'Decimal separator' set to a period (.) instead of another character such as a comma (,) ? :scratchch

This is required for use of most- if not all- FS utilities, FS SDK compilers, and all source data files for the FS SDK. :pushpin:

Hi again:

1.) In Windows Control Panel, click Region and Language applet (Region and Language dialog box opens)

2.) In the Region and Language dialog box, click {Formats} tab

3.) On {Formats} tab > click [Additional Settings] button (Customize Formats dialog box opens)

4.) In Customize Formats dialog box > {Numbers} tab > Decimal Symbol:
a.) Set the Decimal symbol to a period (.) instead of another character such as a comma (,)

b.) Click [OK] button

c.) Back on the Region and Language dialog box {Formats} tab, click [OK] button

d.) Exit Control Panel


5.) Restart Windows
