Hi, I just signed up for your website, and I think it's a must if you have FS, great job guys!!! I'm just having trouble intalling the aircraft, out of about 10 aircraft I download 3 seem to install fine. Any tips would greatly be appreciated.[/code]

Hi, Make sure that you are downloading only 2004 aircraft not 2002 or textures for 2004.
Always look for the aircraft in the menu under the manufacturers name.
If yes to all try this method of installation.
If it still doesn't work let us know in detail what's wrong.
You can try some of his aircraft, they always load.

You need WinZip to unzip the folders.
You can get the trial one at WinZip it's the best you can use and the trial will last for years.

I think I know what you are asking but I try answering two ways.
One, If you cannot find your downloads to "unzip" them, send them to "My Computer", "My Briefcase" or even to "Desktop".
You can enter them from any of those areas.
I download to a folder that I have in "My Briefcase" it's just handy for me that way.
I do it a more complicated way, but it works.
Make certain you have a full aircraft not just textures.

Unzip the file and now it's in it's own little window, you work from there. Dump the jpgs.


dblc on "My Computer"
dblc on The "C" drive icon.
dblc on "Program files"
dblc on "Microsoft Games".
dblc on "Flight Simulator.

Now you have all the folders laid out in front of you.
Follow the directions in the read-me that came with the aircraft.
Put the gauges in the gauge folder.
Put the effects in the effects folder.
Put the aircraft in the aircraft folder; make certain it has the correct name of the plane.

Now go crash land like I do.
