after the last FSX SE update (on 12/01/15 ) addon manager is not working .

This was already discussed, answered and solved in a thread in this same forum section, the same day the FSX:SE update was released:

That's not a problem if the Addon Manager or the installer. That message indicates there's an error in your DLL.XML or EXE.XML file, so the installer will not proceed, because if it tried to change an already corrupted file, it would corrupt it even more and nothing would work anyway.

You should check your XML files for errors, if you cannot fix them, post them here. Their location changes depending if you installed Steam stand-alone, or alongside an existing FSX installation.

The error is in your DLL.XML, which looks to be hand-edited. You put these lines:


</SimBase.Document>
<Launch.Addon>
  <Name>as_connect</Name>
  <Disabled>False</Disabled>
  <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>


After the closing tag </Simbase.Document>, which is of course illegal.

You should move all these lines up, so the last lines will look like this:


<Launch.Addon>
  <Name>as_connect</Name>
  <Disabled>False</Disabled>
  <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>
</SimBase.Document>

I have both FSX and FSX steam installed. I downloaded the latest fsdt installers and successfully installed the Hawaii airports into FSX steam. A week later when I try to install the rest of my fsdt airports I do not get the option to install to steam, only to FSX. I guess something may have happened after the last steam update or something has changed in the registry. Is there anything I can try to get the fsdt installer to give back the option to install to steam? I tried with all of my fsdt airports and none are now giving the FSX steam install option.

Something has changed in your registry, because there hasn't been any updates on Steam after the one published January 12th.

Fixing your registry, of course. You must check your FSX registry keys to be pointing to the correct folders, they are located at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator - Steam Edition\10.0 (if FSX:SE is installed together with FSX)

and

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0 ( if FSX:SE is installed stand-alone )

Thank you for your fast response. I discovered that the Setpath for FSX Steam was missing. I imported back my last
regedit backup file, rebooted the computer and presto the Setpath to FSX Steam returned and the FSDT installer now offers the FSX Steam option again and I was able to install KLAX into Steam no problem.

Thanks again.

See the above reply. It's a problem of your registry keys.

No need whatsoever to do that. If there's no path, the path FSX is running from is used, which is exactly the same. As I've said in my previous message, the problem is NOT the DLL.XML file, the problem are your registry keys.

Is your FSX:SE installed Stand-Alone or alongside an existing FSX installation ?

(HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator - Steam Edition\10.0)

No, it's NOT!

Normally, when FSX:SE is installed stand-alone without FSX, the correct registry key for it, is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator X\10.0, the same used by FSX.

But if you uninstall FSX *after* you install the Steam edition, the FSX uninstaller won't obviously "fix" your FSX:SE keys, because it doesn't know anything about them. A correct course of action would be Uninstalling and Reinstalling the Steam edition too, so the registry keys would all be like FSX, which is how FSX:SE is when installed on a clean system.

Note that, you could have proceeded with the installation, if you simply replied NO to the 1st request to install into FSX Steam mode, because the installer is smart enough to check the FSX folder then, and check if there's a Steam FSX installed there, so you still have a chance to install into Steam in "Single mode", even after your replied NO to a Steam "Dual Mode" install.

This was already discussed here too:

For a dual install is it possible to add the full path to FSDT scenery in the scenery.cfg so that FSDT scenery will load in FSX-SE from its current location in FSX ?  This works with most scenery.
