SODE was installed and activated. I think the reason was the SimConnect installer. I ran a different installer found almost in the same directory. After running "redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib\SimConnect.msi" as you suggested the buildings appeared. Does it have to be that difficult? What went wrong?

Thanks for kind help

Hi Paul,

The reason for that is that SODE is either not installed or activated. Do you have SODE installed? If yes, you can launch our Configurator, go to the Nuremberg tab page and on the lower right side there is a button labeled "Run SODE Platform Manager". Run the program and make sure that SODE is installed to P3Dv4.
If the button isn't there, please install SODE: https://sode.12bpilot.ch/?page_id=9
When you run the "SODE Platform Manager" make sure to activate the module on the P3Dv4 tab by clicking "Register!".
Also make sure that SimConnect is installed so SODE can communicate with your simulator. Run the following installer: "Prepar3D v4\redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib\SimConnect.msi"
Then launch the simulator and check if all the buildings show up.

Hope this helps! If not, please let me know.

Best regards,
Lars

Probably this is a German forum. I write in English just to be sure.

EDDN by Captain 7 does not work for me, no matter what I try. Here are some details:

The "airport" always looks like below. It seems that most scenery files, esp. the buildings and the ground textures, are missing or not recognized. The second image below shows that the scenery and the library are on top of the scenery configuration and activated.

To fix that I started the configurator and did every possible move: I fixed the things that it wants to fix (texture resolution etc.) and ran the troubleshooter which returned that everything is okay. I also installed SODE once more and ran the SimConnect installer that I found inside the P3D installation.

I also had a look into the addons.xml files. It is strange that there are two of them: One in ProgramData/... and one in Users/.../AppData/... The latter contains the 29Palms stuff and the other contains SODE and FSLabs stuff. Everything is activated.

I have now no further idea. 

By the way, why do you install the scenery and your library in this invasive way? The user cannot deactivate the scenery or the library within P3D. There is not even a way to uninstall the software completely. This is not a good style. If I wanted to get rid of the whole thing, how would I do that? Actually, I would like to do just that.

And, by the way, the Aerosoft shop told me on request if it runs on P3D V4.5 that it only runs on P3D V4. I should have read the description, they said. They are sorry. I do not know if this is non-sense or if there is some truth to it.

Yours, angry,

Paul
