FSX Config File Help.

Sun Sep 12, 2010 12:33 am

Hi Folks,
I have just re installed FSX on my laptop running Windows 7. When I copy the details of my addon planes and repaints to the config file using notepad it won't let me save them. Is there some conflict between Windows 7 and FSX?

Nope, not that I am aware of. I can edit and save with no problems.
Right click the cfg and check that the check box for Write protection isn't ticked.

You are sure you edited the file that is used, in your user profile, and not the one in the FSX folder that FSX never uses?
