Also, after the database is created, apparently successfully, the tab for Update Simulator works find (do I need to press "start scanning" from that page?), the page from Update Navdata opens fine (don't think I need to import / update this if it's already there?), but when I click on Enhance / Update Runways it crashes and I get the following (see image) error message.
I have makerwys.exe and lorby both in the main p3d v4.4 directory. I have also run makerwys independently and it does create the file as usual.
Any help or ideas here...I'm stumped.
