resolved Missing Aerofly FS2 in Orbx


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

same issue as described in another thread: I am recently missing Aerofly FS2 in Orbx Central v4.1.40.

 

I did not change anything regarding Aerofly or my Steam Libraries.

 

I did check the Registry key mentioned, and it seems OK:

 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\IPACS\Aerofly FS 2]
@="E:\\SteamLibrary\\steamapps\\common\\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator"
"installpath"="E:\\SteamLibrary\\steamapps\\common\\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator"
"ExePath"="E:\\SteamLibrary\\steamapps\\common\\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator\\bin64\\aerofly_fs_2.exe"

 

E:\>dir "\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator\bin64"
...
17.06.2021  23:01    <DIR>          .
17.06.2021  23:01    <DIR>          ..
20.04.2017  21:38    <DIR>          .vs
17.06.2021  23:01        13.571.736 aerofly_fs_2.exe
...

 

"Scan for Libraries" did not help (though I guess it has nothing to do with finding the Sim anyway).

 

Aerofly itself is still working.

 

Any idea what might be causing this?

 

Thanks,

 Olaf

Thanks John, for checking.

 

I tried again today and I still don't have the "Aeroflight 2" entry in the simulator dropdown any more (only "Prepar3D v4", "Microsoft Flight Simulator", and "X-Plane 11").

Hi

Maybe try a verify files of the simulator from the Steam interface.

Verify MSFS files on Steam is broken. If you call it, it deletes the COMPLETE installation and redownloads all of it. I was bitten once myself, and there are several threads on this the Steam MSFS fora.

 

Maybe they repaired it during the last weeks, but I highly doubt it.

 

Kind regards, Michael

 

Edit: AeroflyFS2 is missing for me, too. There's only MSFS, XP11, and P3D5.

I have verified the Aerofly FS 2 files in Steam, no problem found.

 

Verify files used to work for all games I know and those I tried. The only exception is (or was?) MSFS, for whatever reason, thus the warning

 

Kind regards, Michael

I assume there must be some logic in Orbx Central failing to detect the installed Aerofly FS 2.

 

I haven't had AFS2 installed for quite some time now, but when I get home later on today, I will install it and see what happens.

 

Yes, Orbx Central will just look for the registry key of the sim on your PC, so maybe it is being blocked from being read on your system?
