I have read all post that I can find about saving and I understand every step but I keep getting the error msg that I cant save the airplane.cfg file I modify for a new texture. I am running FSX on Vista and I have admin rights. Any ideas would be welcome.

kvaughn78, Try this. In the Airplane.cfg file look at the [texture.xx] of the plane that is working and compare that planes texture list with the one you are trying to get working. I had to hunt and peck my way though this but finally got it working. Someone with more knowledge can certainly get more specific.

Here's the original that came with the plane
