I can download aircraft from Avsim.com without any problem. I then copy the file - which is, by this time, unzipped - and paste it in FS2002/Aircraft. No problems. But not all aircraft have the 'install now' option, thus resulting in them not being installed at all. I have not changed any names. Why is this? How can I remedy it? Mysteriously, some aircraft can be installed and then flown quickly, but most can't be installed and thus not flown.

A lot of aircraft files on Avsim.com don't have the 'install now' button, you have to copy the whole file to the aircraft file in FS2002. I can't really remember how to do it now as I have FS2004 and don't need to use WinZip. But just right click on the yellow folder named whatever...'Virgin A340-600'...And paste it in to your aircraft folder.
