Where can I find BLN2SHP


As you may already know, except for very specialized purposes, use of Jim Keir's BLN2SHP appears to have been deprecated in the FS development community in favor of other GUI-based methods of creating FSX CVX vector content via SBuilder, ADE, FSX-KML, etc..

Use of XML2SHP by Winfried Orthmann has apparently also been deprecated for the same reasons... it's easier to create scenery via a 3rd party GUI, and other *.SHP file generation utility *.DLLs have become available for programmers to use.


However, for those using BLN2SHP for a specialized workflow, and for those interested in having a copy for posterity, BLN2SHP is in the BLNMarker package "Programas" by jcboliveira in a thread at simFlight (registered users must login to download):
