Installed ver 4.0.10,  all my installed scenery ( in ) speared in orbx central. I created a new black library on another drive and migrated TE GB south. All The scenery files copied to the new scenery library folder,  deleted from the original  /x-plane 11/custom Scenery folder  but no symbolic links were created in the  /x-plane 11/custom Scenery folder and no mention at all of TE GB south in the scenery_packs.ini

Not sure what is the problem. But now I cannot use the scenery in X-Plane.

If I completely delete the scenery, and I download fresh to the Orbx Library, a shortcut get created.   The migration seems to be the issue.

Can I migrate the scenery, then do a manual shortcut to the  /x-plane 11/custom Scenery folder using copy/paste shortcut ? or the links has to be symbolic links rather than just shortcut ?

Thanks Nick,  re-syncing created the links in  /x-plane 11/custom Scenery folder.

Although I have read the Orbx central user guide. I don't remember reading that we need to re-sync after migration. Maybe, I'v missed it.
