I tried that but it didn't seem to work.

Read the install instructions again and try them step by step.
They may not be the best but they should guide you.

Don't forget the read-me that came with the download.

Thank you very much for the advise. I ended up looking at how the other folders were set out and copying them, it now works perfectly. Very Happy

All of the planes that I am downloading as of late seem to be white skin with just patched of it that show color. Anyone else having the same problem and if so do you know a fix?

Go into the Sims menu, go to the graphics tab and uncheck the DX10 box.

If I understand you, put them on your desktop and unzip them there.

It doesn't matter where you have your 'downloads'. You can even leave them on your flash drive. The important thing is that you have to extract the contents of the .zip files ('downloads') FIRST by right-clicking on a .zip file and following the Wizard.

Then you copy and paste the individual parts where they belong using Windows Explorer.

Just place the panel.cfg files into the appropriate panel folders, that's where they belong.

I had trouble at first but I did this:
Download the file(s) to your desktop (just makes them easier to find).
Start button -
Computer -
OS (C:) -
Program Files -
Microsoft Games -
Microsoft Flight Sim X -
Sim Objects -
Airplanes (should be a list of all the default planes).
Right click on the file on your desktop then 'copy' -
On the airplanes page click 'file' then 'paste' -
Start up Flight Sim X and you're ready to fly. :)
Note: Some downloads have additional files in eg. 'Read Me's' and screensavers just open the file on your desktop then copy the file with the aircraft's name or what it was saved as.

Go into the Sims graphics tab and uncheck the box DX10, then they will have textures.

Ive managed to download and install different aircraft but im having big problems changing the config file.

Every time I edit it and then go to save i get an error message stating...
"Cannot create the C:..blah blah... file. Make sure the path and file name are correct".

It happens both if i click save or save as.
Anyone had the same problem???

If you disable User Account in your control panel you'll find it works perfect. Flying Dutchman.

every texture file i download never works. I copy and paste the files correctly into FSX program files yet when i open up the game there is nothing there. the only downloads that work are the package one's..... If it comes to having to add a texture in it's going to be a no go. for example: I downloaded a repaint for my crj700, copied and pasted the texture into the crj file and then edited the .cfg file and when it's done i open up the game and all i have is the stupid orbit air crj...... the sight of that stupid plane makes me want to throw up. please help.

You have to be the administrator to access it.
