I want to explain. Couatl does not start automatically after I start MSFS, and it still does not appear in the taskbar.

But that's a known MSFS bug! It doesn't start automatically for me as well, maybe one every 5 times or so, but not just couatl, all the add-ons in the EXE.XML ( Fenix, Honeycomb, etc. ) don't start automatically, the whole EXE.XML get skipped for some reason.

The issue is well known on MSFS forums.

Oh, is that it? I did not know that. So, is everyone using GSX now manually starting Couatl? If so, of course, there is nothing to do. Then it means we will manage this way until this problem is fixed. Well, thank you very much for all your help.

No, of course, it doesn't happen to everybody, but it happens to many.

My latest attempt using ER AL's starting couatl before FS and restarting after. Even using a FSDT airport.

Your error is different, and indicates the installation didn't complete, since it seems you are missing at least the gsx-world-of-jetways package. Try to uninstall/reinstall and notice if you see any errors or indications the package couldn't be installed.

I saved the .ini file and restart Couatl64_P3D which is in the Addon Manager - Couatl64 folder but there is nothing showing in the .ini file.
Someone help me please?
