I don't quite know how to explain everything that has happened over the last few days, but I will try. First of all, I have ALL of your Sceneries and never had any issues with them. The Addon Manager has had a couple of hickups over the years, but has always gotten back to functioning fine.
OK, Now here is what has happened. Flight Simulator was working fine the last time I used it prior to downloading and installing the Honolulu FSX "Demo Mode". After the installation, I started FSX, but it just sat there in the Initializing Window. I checked Task Manager to see what was happening, It stated that FSX was Not Responding. I killed the process and tried starting it again with the same problem. I could not figure out what was happening, I was not getting any Error Messages. I uninstalled Honolulu and then started FSX again and it started fine. Curious, I installed Honolulu again, only to have the same problem as before. I uninstalled it again and FSX was fine again. I downloaded the installer for Honolulu again, just in case I got a bad download. This did not change the situation, I had the same problem as before. After checking the Forums Here, I uninstalled Honolulu again and said yes to the options to remove Addon Manager and Couatl. I got error messages saying that they could not be found. I tried turning off my Firewall and Anti-Virus Software and downloaded the Stand Alone Addon Manager, installed Honolulu, installed Addon Manager over that and found that nothing had changed. No matter what I do, FSX will not start with Honolulu installed. I tried removing Addon Manager using "Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs", then reinstalling it, only to find that I am now getting this error message:Setup
Runtime Error (at 116:2188):
Error on line 0, position 0: The following tags were not closed: SimBase.Document.
I have No Idea what that Error Message means.
I have downloaded the Addon Manager since you updated it.
Now, when I start FSX, it starts, but I do not have Addon Manager in the FSX Tool Bar, it along with everything that was in it is gone.....hence, none of my FSDreamteam Sceneries show up. "Instant Scenery" is gone from the tool bar as well as my "AI Carriers" and something else that was there. I am frustrated and don't know what else to do. This all started when I installed Honolulu FSX. How can this be?
Please have a Miracle for me
