Hello, i just buy the dodosim 206 for FSX, i use my FSX in Steam and also (FlyInside P3D).
When I start the Dodosim_206_FSX.msi he said to me, he dont find the FSX.EXE.

I read in this forum i had to use the FS_Registry_Repair.exe ,

i did it ... restart my Win7(64) but the same error again.

How can I use the dodosim in my FSX ?

And second question, can i use it in P3D ?

There is another post in this section for the HTC VIVE Virtual Reality headset and flyinside. Which although a different Brand sounds like the Flyinside and dodo has a problem maybe ask at the Flyinside website for support also.

The problem is that the Steam edition of FSX writes different registry entries to the original Microsoft FSX. The installer was written for Microsoft FSX and therefore does not identify the path for FSX-SE.

This was never a problem in the past, but is now a problem which effects a lot of older FSX add-ons.  There is a migration utility on the internet which mimics the original FSX registry entries which I believe many people are using.

What I will do is export the registry setting it is looking for so you can manually add it.  After that the installer should work correctly.  I will do this for you later this evening UK time as I'm away from my computer right now.

Regards,

Si

Ok.  This procedure will install a registry path for Microsoft FSX in your Windows registry.  This will enable installers looking for the install location for the original CD MS-FSX to locate the FSX-SE installation.  Note that the same procedure also applies for installing into Prepar3D:

1) Create a notepad text document on your desktop and call it something like "FSXregdata.reg".  Note the extension .reg is very important as it allows the context menu to identify it as a registry file.

2) Copy and paste this text into the file:

Code Sample

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0]
"SetupPath"="E:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Games\\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\\"


3) Change the path in the text to match the root of your FSX-SE/P3D installation, noting the double backslash notation.  (This is the directory that has the FSX.exe executable in it.)

4) Save and close the file.

5) Right click the file and select "Merge" (on Windows 10. I think it is "Install" on Windows 7 and earlier.)  Accept any confirmations. (Note you may need admin privileges.)

You should now be able to ruu the installer without any problems.  I've just tested it on my system and it works ok.

Regards,

Si

If you emailed the DodoSim support email address then I wont get it until Mark forwards it to me.  Could you PM me the error info? That way I can look at it straight away.

We'll find a solution, don't worry.  The simplest method is probably for us to just get the files to you so you can copy them in rather than using an installer.

Regards,

Si

Try replacing the double backslash after FSX in the registry path entry with a single slash. The double is not required when adding it manually.

Ok. I've looked up that error and it seems to be something to do with user profiles, user account control privileges that is causing InstallShield some problems.

The easiest solution is for me to just provide you with the files so you can drop them directly into your FSX directory structure.  

If you PM me your email address I will send you a temporary DropBox link from where you can retrieve them.

Regards,

Si

Can you confirm whether the 206 loads and performs properly in "normal" FSX?  i.e. When not using FlyInside?

I get issues like this a lot with FI, regardless of the aircraft I choose.  Sometimes I have to try loading a flight several times before it'll run without immediately crashing.

Try running FSX without FI, create a flight with the 206, switch to virtual cockpit then save the flight.  Then try and load that flight under FI.

Can you clarify: Does the 206 run in FSX without FlyInside running?
It's not clear from your previous answer.

Thanks,

Ok.  I'm going to have to do some testing myself and try and narrow down the problem.  I shall have to talk to the FlyInside programmers and see if they have any ideas.  If it works in Steam FSX but not with FlyInside running then it would suggest the problem is somewhere in FlyInside but since I cannot debug that all I can prove is that it is not in the 206.  There have been a lot of problems with FI and 3rd party aircraft and I don't think anyone has figured out why.  Hopefully between us we can solve the problem but it might take a bit of time.

I will keep you informed.
