    Gmax - Cannot Export makemdl file

    I currently use gmax to export models to FSX ! I would like to start using gmax to also export models to fs2004. Not having a lot of luck!

    I get the error :

    MakeMdl was not found or failed to convert the model found in Export file folder ??

    This is a copy of the log file !

    Running model

    Error!

    The FSModelexp.dle file is in Fs2004 Gamespack folder along with Makemdl.exe, and I have Configured a path to it !

    I downloaded the SDK from Fly Away Simulations and installed it step by step, Includeng the makemdl SDK and the gmax SDK !

    I have been working on this for about a week now, and have read the forms for Information, I am about totally frustrated with it ! HEEEEELLLPP !

    Thanks Johnman

    Hello

    I don't know what is causing those error messages and cartainly the problems wouldn't be due a file(s) or path(s) dependencies degradation. I googled the message error and it lead me here:
    http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/lights-in-scenery.629/

    It is unknown to me if Arno's suggestion in that post might solve your problem. As a side not, tuning ASM files is not for beginners and is "above my paygrade" :(

    Hopefully, real help is on the way...
    All the best,
    Sergio.

    A bit unlikely in this case, but worth checking anyway: do you have the correct "decimal separator" set in your Windows setup, here:

    Control Panel > System > Regional Settings > Numbers > Decimal Separator and check it is "." (period) not "," (comma).

    "nondigit in number" surely sounds like there is something wrong there. But then the error should also have shown up in FSX compiles....
