After adding 3 textures to the default FSX Boeing 737-800, and I go to save, it does not let me saying:

cannot create the C:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesMicosoft Flight Simulator XSimObjectsAirplanesB737_800aircraft.cfg file

Make sure that the path and file name are correct


Is there something I'm not doing right?

Any help would be great!

Initially I would say: everything sounds good.

Maybe try to use "save as..." and then give it a new name, and then save it. Then rename it. Just a thought. Maybe it works then...

I believe in Vista FSX installs with certain files marked as protected. they can be moved and deleted, but not edited. You can either update permissions on the files, or use Wilco737's solution... either should work...

Of course, your mileage may vary. Just my two cents from my vista setup!

Thanks for your help WILCO737, however it still doesn't allow me to save, even under a new name. Any other solutions?

Maybe copy the file, edit it then and then put it back into the FS folder?
Check the settings if you are allowed to change the file or if you have administrator rights to access that file...

Thanks Wilco737. That helped, all I had to do was let me have permission to edit file.

There should be a key on your keyboard. Don't know really what it is on an english keyboard as I am using a German one. But it should be called "print" or so. Hit that together with CTRL and then just go to PS or something like that and hit CTRL + V and then you should see the screenshot.

And then you get that:

Big version: Width: 1834 Height: 1077 File size: 689kb

Looks like you have messed up the aicraft.cfg file. I don't know what's wrong there. This is something I don't know anything about - sorry.

I believe in Vista FSX installs with certain files marked as protected. they can be moved and deleted, but not edited.

To use Vista without any problems, you have to have two separate logins. One as administrator and one as a user. Vista pretends that everybody is running on a network even though it may be a standalone PC.

To have the fewest problems, I install FSX logged in as administrator and if I wish to change something in FSX, I do so in administrator login. Changing the file protection will also work.

I keep my addon files in a separate file under my user login so they can easily be modified.

Looks like your texture files are mip-maps which will make them blurry close up.

Ensure that the texture are saved as .BMP (bitmaps).
