    That's correct, there is no space in the P3D v1 key, while the other have.

    Isn't it nice when they change things to make it more complex :D

    Thanks for confirming it Arno,

    Right, LOL! Actually not a big problem but it's important to know (and notice) that in advance. I originally though it was a typo error...

    One more silly question: Can I assume all flavors of FS (FS2002, 2004, X, STEAM Ed.) and P3Ds (1, 2, 3) have the "fonts" sub folder under their respective root?

    Hi guys,

    I need to create an installer that will deposit a few FLT/FSSAVE/WX files into

    C:\Users\<user>\Documents\Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition Files

    and go in and add entries to dll.xml and fsx_se.cfg (and possibly a few others) in

    C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX-SE

    I've looked through this thread and I don't see any registry entries for these two locations. Any idea where/how to get to them?

    Also, any suggestions on what utility to get to add/modify .xml amd .cfg files on installation?

    I've used InstallShield before, and it is quite powerful, but that was a while ago and I remember it was quite involving, and it needed a bit of script writing to get it done.
    I'm just wondering if there is anything else out there that would accomplish what I need, namely appending/inserting text blocks at certain file locations.

    No registry entries, there are environment variables that you can use to get the values. Something like %APPDATA% for the second one, %USERPROFILE% for the first one and add downstream folders

    Hi all,

    Can somebody confirm that for P3D v4 this CURRENT USER key is also present? Although not in this list I know that for v3 it is the case, but also for v4?

    For P3DV4, that key is "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\AppPath".

    At least, that's where it is in my installation.

    Thanks, so that's the same structure as before.

    Later I realised that now with it being a 64 bit application there is only one key in LOCAL MACHINE as well, so maybe less need for the CURRENT USER one.
