I had bought two addons from the company Zinertek. Those were able to install (even detected the correct directory) and worked correctly. Those are:
  1. World Environment 2012
  2. Ultimate Airport Environment X

    Still it seems promising shame it looks like the updated FSUIPC wont be released until the new year due to Peter's PC having died.

    Originally posted by ginsb001:
    Radar Contact 4 (build 3845) works with FSX-SE. I tested through loading a plan file and getting clearance.

    You must use the latest fsuipc4 now equipped for Steam:

    4.938a version full install.

    When installing Radar Contact it may try to install an older fsuipc4 which can't find the FSX path for registration. Just cancel out of that and continue install. fsuipc4.938a should be installed first or later.

    After RC installs, in your FSX folder place the latest version of makeryws.exe from:

    then rerun from within RC the scenery rebuild again.

    On VISTA or win 7 or later, create a shortcut to rcv4.exe in your new RCv4x folder. Set the first property and advanced property windows both to run as admin to get user rights and program connection rights to FSX especially in any program files folder hierarchy.

    You may have to enter the path to the FSX folder in some steps including building the scenery database in RC. mine is:


    In RC you get an explorer type window for setting your flt/wx path. Never cancel out of that but change or accept the current selection. Cancelling out could corrupt RC's strartup data files.

    Once running successfully in your rcv4x folder copy the files rcv3.dat and keyboard.dat to a safe backup folder to avoid a reinstallation. In that same folder it would be wise to place a text copy of your current license key mailed to you to avoid registration again should you need to reinstall. The current key is valid for the assigned drive as long as you do not reformat it.

    RC allows a certain low number of automatic new key registrations if required such as moving to a different drive or PC. If you change your e-mail address from your initial order it will have to be manually handled.

    You do not need to be online to run RC once the install is complete.

    Keep a copy of the downloaded jnstallation zip file on a CD or other safe location should you require to reinstall RC to avoid downloading again.

This saved my day:

Registry Repair tool - DO NOT use this tool if you have a version OTHER THAN FSX:SE on your system. This tool will patch the location of FSX:SE in the registry.

It is the 4th item in the list. After download run the tool and navigate to the location of FSX:SE FSX.exe
You must click it then click open in the tool. It will then patch the registry. If it fails to work some systems may require a restart to take effect. Again, DO NOT USE this if you have a NON STEAM addition on your computer, it will bork the installation.

Anyone tried Active Sky Next or the Aerosoft Airbus series?
Sharpkaze Dec 18, 2014 @ 8:26pm 
I'm kind of new to FSX (I've played fs2004 before, but not too much) and was wondering what kind of free addons or like extra planes that I could add to this version? would really appreciate it
Rodrigo Dec 19, 2014 @ 5:16am 
Active Sky Next is not working! I've installed some addons without any issue (Orbx FTX Global, Vector, Open LC).

Quality Wings 146 seems to be working. Anyone get a flight planner to work? FSCommander doesn't.

Installed A2A Piper cub and C172 not checked all the 172 functionality yet but will do later today.
Did however have a problem when I installed the ORBX libraries it gave a .dll error for object placement so far I've only installed the PNW and no addon airfields will try later today along with a few Carenado and Aerosoft planes
