Hello:

I did a fresh install of v1.2 in P3D. Ran as admin and antivirus off. Still can't get any of the ILS to work.

Thanks.

Thanks,
I'll check later; I did have your screen-shot after download, but selected FSX STEAM both times, which is my simulator, only 'Duel mode' meant nothing to me. I need to find this installer and select FSX only. Only I'm not finding it by 'manual' searching of the files in Program files x86. Thanks, will be in touch later.

"Dual mode" means that you have both FSX and FSX Steam on your hard driver.

Exactly!

Which files are you looking for? Exe files downloaded from the store?

Please let me know what is being indicated by the installer - when you run the installer it should give you the information about the product version.

Hi there

The installer was identical to the one shown earlier; pinkish with the following selectable bullets: (top) FSX, then FSX Steam Edition (duel mode only), then Dovetail games flight sim world, then Lockheed Martin Prepar 3D V 1, V2, V3 etc.

I selected FSX Steam Edition because, since I use FSX SE, I would reasonably assume that FSX Steam would be the correct one to use. However, for want of any further warning, I should have selected just FSX.

Only now I cannot find the installer to reselect just FSX to re-download again. Any suggestions please as to where it can be found on my windows 10 new PC? I don't want to download them all again because of the time it takes, but if I have to I shall.

Thanks, Steve

Quick question. I purchased Chicago Airports X, downloaded it, and as it was being installed was told I needed to download a Demo, which I did. Now I have two folders in my Add-on Folder labelled "Chicago X" and "Chicago X Demo." Should the Demo be deleted? Am I missing something that I need to run the full version? Thank you.

EUREKA! It's worked! I had to download again from Just Flight; the download was much faster than the previous download for both Chicago City and Chicago airports. When the installer wizard appeared I selected FSX and NOT FSX Steam Edition (Duel mode only), even though I have FSX SE on my PC. The scenery then appeared in my FSX SE in Settings/Scenery Library, at the top of the list with a tick against it. It works splendidly now!

Hi. The install exe shows v1.2 and the installer shows v1.2. Not sure what the issue could be.

Thank you. I think I resolved my issue by downloading without a download manager.

Appreciate the help.

During the installation process you are informed that demo of Chicago City X can be installed. So you may have the demo of city, not airports. If it's not the case, You need to show me what do you have in the scenery library or which folders do you have in Addon Scenery (exact names).

Hello
I discovered when the extra buildings appear - when I turn on autogen building density. Extremely dense - 3 buildings appear. When very dense is selected - 2 buildings appear. When dense is selected - 1 building. When normal is selected - no building appear.
The buildings look like houses. Right across from terminal 3, taxiway intersection B & LL
Thoughts ?? Thx. Doug

So there should be some other files affecting this area or our scenery doesn't have the priority. What sim are we talking about? Any other addons for this area?
