Title: Change FSX path for AivlaSoft EFB
Post by: Adrian Chitan on September 02, 2015, 04:16:40 PM
Hi guys,

a few weeks ago I did something rather stupid. I wanted to get rid of my installation of FSX boxed and return to FSX Steam (they fixed the terrain crash). But instead of unistalling FSX I deleted it. Then I installed FSX Steam and had lots of fun until now when I wanted to use Aivlasoft EFB. Unfortunately, ASEFB will keep the old FSX install directory in its DataProvider module no mater how many times you unistall it and re-install it. So ASEFB will not be usable. Also there is no user-friendly manner using ASEFB GUI to change the FSX install folder. But, I found out how to do it :D:

ASEFB takes the simulator install dir from...Windows Registry. So you just have to go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\microsoft games\Flight Simulator\10.0
and change the SetupPath value to where FSX is actually installed.

Hope this helps if you find yourself in the same predicament as I.
