When you click the installer be sure it points (in small narrow window) to FSX not to FS9 (2004).

I probably should have created a seperate folder when I installed the flight sim...I read that this program is picky with third party add-ons...maybe that's the problem? Paying customers need to be aware of this problem.

I just got an email from AFS and didn't understand one thing they said. I guess if I am correct you have to disable Direct X 10 trailer??? These directions were nuts no one could understand it. Why can't they make it simple??

Also I asked for a refund for the King Air from SimShack...still waiting..when I had an online business I gave the refunds immediately if the customer wasn't happy...I hope they do or I will file a complaint with the Ohio Attorney Generals office.

Why not post the email they sent so others could try to make sense of it.

Please don't take me wrong Radarman, I love aviation and flight sim. I just get really annoyed when I expect something and pay for it and it doesn't work. I think that is reasonable.

1. For FSX download the „AFS-____-FSX.exe“ to a temporary directory of your
choice.
2. Please start the „AFS-____-FSX.exe“ and install.
3. Set in ... the main directory from FSX, when not automatic choice.
4. Than start the Flight Simulator
Please use the AFS-____-FSX.exe only for FSX
The textures are not suitable for the FS2004.

I don't understand this???

Problem solved with the King Air: For FSX you need to install Service Pack 1 & 2 and this solved my problem...thanks Radarman for your efforts.

Now that you have the 2 service packs installed you are using all of your 4 cores of your CPU.

When FSX was made and sold it didn't use anything but 1 core, by adding the 2 service packs you are now using the CPU driven FSX at it's max.
I doubt that you will have that problem with any aircraft breaking up like before.

As for the RAF, just put it into the FSX folder then double click it and see where the parts went.
Hopefully they will go to the right folders.

Let us know.

All Carenado aircraft are beautiful.
He makes the best GA aircraft you can get.

Take a look at these two of my favorites.

If you already tried to install the RAF aircraft go to start/search all programs and files and feed in RAF, it should come up.
The just take it and put it into simobjects/airplanes.
