|I've found the .cfg files and tried to update when I downloaded some new liveries for the 737-800,only problem is when I click on "|Edit" then make the changes, it won't let me save the file. I'm using Vista......and I click "ALLOW" when prompted.

You have to be particular here. The topic concerns the FSX.cfg file.

You are talking about the aircraft.cfg file of the 737. Two totally different .cfg files.

Why would you click on Edit when you edit the aircraft.cfg file?
All you have to do is open the aircraft.cfg with Notepad, make your changes --- but don't forget to backup the original first --- and when you close the aircraft.cfg allow the changes. Done.

Sorry for the confusion over the .cfg file types. Too answer your question, yes, I open them in notepad using the edit function, then make the changes. When I go to save it or close it, the program tells me it will not allow it, must be administrator. Well, I AM the administrator on my home PC. Just wondering if it was a new function of Vista. That's all. Thanks for the input, I'll try again.

I'm still not in the clear about that 'Edit Function' you keep mentioning... is this something new in Vista?

Running under XP all you have to do is open the .cfg, make your changes and close the notepad/textfile. Saving changes of course. That's it Umm...

Yup - you are correct. I can do it on my office PC running XP, but my home PC running Vista won't let me. Word of caution!
