    2 Simulator Installation

    Oskar, the strange thing is that the EFB server did NOT autodetect the FSX-SE installation in the registry. I had to manually direct the installer. Any thoughts Juergen

    2 Simulator Installation

    Randy, I have 2 SSD's - Drive C with WIN 10 and drive D just formatted to hold data. So initially I wanted to have the 2 simulators on the same drive [FSX-SE & P3Dv4]). I installed STEAM on the C drive in a directory FS FSX-SE and tried to install FSX-SE onto the same directory. However, that's when I ran into the single default download location with STEAM. So the only chance I had was to install Steam & FSX-SE on drive D and install P3Dv4 on the C drive in it's own directory. Sofar just minor glitches and operator errors Juergen

    Randy, I tried that and could NOT add a second location to the default path. Supposedly it has changed that only 1 path per drive and you can not change the default path. Thanks for help

    2 Simulator Installation

    Hi Oskar, I had success! After looking at the scenery path's and checking in the simulator (ALL present) i decided to un-install the server completely. After the re-install of the server - created both databases (FSX-SE and P3Dv4). Both databases created w/o errors and both connect to the display unit. So we are good to go and I know where I am when flying. Thanks Juergen

    Oskar, I checked and it certainly looks like everything is in the correct location. Can you give me an for instance so I can check if the scenery is there where EFB is looking. Thanks

    2 Simulator Installation

    Oskar, Maybe it is not quite clear what I meant with the FSX-SE installation, but here is what happened: Initially I had planned to install both simulators (FSX_SE and P3D) on a 1TB SSD which I had just installed WIN10 onto. So than I installed STEAM onto that drive, went to my STEAM library and tried to change the download default location from C:Program Files (x86) to another folder which I had created on my hard drive. However, STEAM did NOT let me change the default location from C:Program Files (x86) to another location. Only 1 (ONE) path per drive. That's the reason I had to install FSX-SE to another drive and STEAM would let me install to that location. So my FSX-SE is now installed in D : FS FSX-SE > steamapps > common > FSX. The trick you mentioned i applied to P3Dv4 (create a directory and point the installer to it), but it does NOT work with FSX Steam Edition. The default installation path is given and you can NOT change it. You can only have one install path per drive. I hope I made myself understandable what happened and what I had to do. So initially I had a problem with both simulators. However after I ran P3Dv4, the missing addon directories were created and the database finished w/o errors. Not so in FSX-SE. After i ran the simulator, I tried to create a new database and almost immediately received this error: https://www.flickr.com/photos/141330124@N05/shares/7JuU15 Also the attached Server Log files in my initial post apply. So this is the state of the simulators: P3Dv4 GOOD / FSX-SE NO GOOD I hope it makes sense and thank you for help Juergen

    Hi, Can anyone help me with the issue I have in FSX-SE. Thanks

    2 Simulator Installation

    Hi, I resolved the issue in P3D - I never opened P3D, so therefore the directory in Documents was not created. Works fine now.
  10. Hi, I have a problem getting the EFB2 to work with my simulators. Background: I tried to install FSX-SE and P3Dv4 on 1 (one) SSD. However, Steam does NOT let me select a different install directory (on 1 drive) other than the default [ C: Program Files (x86) > .....], so I installed FSX-SE on a separate SSD. I installed P3Dv4 on the C drive in it's own directory {NOT in "Program Files"}. Now when I am trying to create databases for both simulators, I get errors on both database creations. Thanks for help and suggestions Server_201811111057.txt.zip Server_201811111058.txt.zip

    Deaprture Airport & Weather

    Hi Oskar, O.k. I have Active Sky enabled, but it is NOT running. Does it then displays the weather from Active Sky the last time I used the EFB with Active Sky? Also, how do you get those screenshot into the forum posts? (I always use Flickr) Thanks for reply
  13. Hi, I have a question: I am flying w/o weather (clear skies), but I get weather information of the departure airport like Wind/Clouds/Temp&Dew/QNH/Flight Conditions. I have no weather program running / simulator is P3Dv4 - Where Does This Information Come From? Thanks for clarification

    Airport Layout

    Hi Oskar, Thanks for clarification.

    Airport Layout

    Hi, I have a question: The airport scenery in P3Dv4 in NZAA (Auckland, New Zealand) shows 2 (two) parallel runways next to each other. The airport layout in EFB2 shows a single runway with some disconnected taxiways leading to the non existent runway? A actual photograph shows 2 parallel runways with the terminal in-between. No addons, stock scenery. Doesn't EFB2 read the scenery files of P3Dv4? Thanks for clarification
