Scenery Directory Not Found
« on: July 06, 2017, 10:44:15 AM »
Recently purchased and installed KEWR scenery. I suspect the error described below is not particular to FA software, but I thought I'd ask since I don't know how to fix the error.
The problem: when I start FSX-Steam, an error message (see attached jpg). I click OK to dismiss the message and everything seems to work without problem. The KEWR scenery is operating.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

Hello Eric,

Could you upload your scenery.cfg file? It is located in the folder:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX-SE, if you have both versions of FSX installed. If not, the folder will be C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX

To access ProgramData, your computer needs to be set to show hidden folders. To do this, search for 'Folder Options' in the start menu, and click the 'folder options' results. In the window that opens. click the 'view' tab, and click 'Show hidden files, folders, and drives', then press OK.

Try replacing your scenery.cfg file with this one. I left everything the same except gave it a slightly modified file path going off of the other scenery files you have. If it doesn't work, you can revert to the original one that you've uploaded here.

Your solution as provided did not work initially, but I modified the LOCAL variable to point to the location of the folder in question (USA Airports KEWR) and the problem was solved.
Thank you for the assist. One other question...
I'm pretty sure the files necessary for this piece of scenery are not located where the installer program directed me to put them (although the KEWR scenery seems to function anyway). Can you tell me where they are supposed to be if installed correctly for FSX-Steam?
Thanks again.

Glad you got it fixed! The scenery should be located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\ on your system. In the FSX folder, there should be a 'Final Approach Simulations' folder containing USA Airports KEWR. When the installer asks for a location to put the scenery, the FSX folder should be selected. By default it will search for the older version of FSX if a directory is not selected.
