Update #3, issue is the Couatl_Updater2.exe file... When using LiveUpdate, it replaces this file with a small file which cannot be run. If I run the copy which came with Vancouver the sceneries are updated succesfully...

Update #2, after installing Vancouver, I managed to run the LiveUpdate succesfully once... Second time same issue. Could Couatl_Updater2.exe be the issue? It has a file size of 234kb.

If the forum had a like option I would have used it. I notice in the pinned topics this info isn't included. A suitable candidate surely?  Smiley

ok, so what do you mean with "close to the Airplane" and how long should it take tuntil the GPU is there ?

Close means close, like 50 meters at most.

Iíve never had to exclude that folder in a couple of years of running Windows 10. Clearly something has changed in the OS.

Sure it has. Antivirus definitions are updated very often.

But that's not the main point. We don't suggest to add the Addon Manager "only" to prevent the antivirus to possibly block it, it's a best practice in any case, because even when something "works", the antivirus is still affecting it heavily. Each time an executable tries to open a file, the antivirus will scan it in the background, and this can have an huge impact on performances or slow down operations a lot. Recreating the airport cache in GSX when you add/remove a scenery usually takes 5-7 seconds, but if the antivirus is not Excluded this can easily go up to 40-50 seconds or even more, if you have *lots* of sceneries.

Whenever I install a new system from scratch, the FIRST thing I do is:

- Add entire simulator folder ( FSX, P3D, MSFS ) to the antivirus Exclusions

- If I keep additional sceneries installed on other drivers/folders, I also add all of these to the antivirus Exclusions

- The whole Addon Manager folder, of course.

- Every other folder that might contain executable add-ons. If you bought them from reputable vendors there's nothing to fear.

This is the only way to be sure the antivirus won't interfere and you'll always get the best possible performances.

I'm sorry, but I cannot reproduce it. Again, the only possible reason is the antivirus, that's the only thing that could explain a sudden quit with no errors of any kind.

The first shows Masked Island  a very small island which is part of the Auckland islands (one of the sub antarctic islands ). The snapshot shows the geonames tag and a snapshot of my fsx sim just hovering over the actual island location and as you can see the current xpoi  marker is way across the bay.

I checked the coordinates in your screenshot and, according to Google maps, you should be over the actual island but, in the middle of the water between the big island and the small one, facing East so you should see the XPOI marker in front of you, which is exactly what you are seeing.


So, the thing that is not precise, seems to be the FSX scenery underneath.

The second set of images are of the Massey University School Of Aviation building located in Palmerston North Airport ,  New Zealand. First the geonames tag and then the fsx location with no XPOI label...   

This is a bit strange, XPOI surely works only online so, if something it's on geonames.org, it should display on XPOI as well. What's your setting for "POI with inexact coordinates" ?

I also tried removing all products, Addon Manager folder and Virtuali folder under Settings. After installing the first scenery (Basel), LiveUpdate runs, I see Couatl_Updater2 in the details and after that it is gone again...

Thanks for the suggestion! I am running ESET NOD32, and haven't had any issues yet. I tried to:
- temporarily deactivate the virusscanner
- adding the entire Addon Manager folder as an exclusion

Both did not work... I also tried uninstalling/reinstalling Vancouver, but after installation same issue with LiveUpdate.
