• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

P3D v4 file association problem

My file association helper will not show me the choice............ always use this app for opening bgl's. Is there another way to do this without going into registry?

I cannot find modelconverterX in file settings in my Win 10. I have mcx installed in my drive D and it does open. C is my main drive, of course, D is my extra drive. Should I have installed mcx in documents instead?

Hi Bob:

Here is some info that might help:

https://www.thewindowsclub.com/change-file-associations-windows

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/ne...t-easier-to-manage-default-file-associations/


FYI: AFAIK, you can put MCX on any drive; just browse to it to assign MCX as the associated executable to open double-clicked *.BGL files

Otherwise, in Windows Explorer (aka "File Manager" or "This PC"), right-click on a BGL file, then select "Open With" to set a file association.

Or just drag the BGL file on top of the open MCX screen.

windows file helper does that.. EXCEPT FOR MCX!~ I do not get the box - always use this app for bgl's. But since I had another problem with my machine. l wll let you know what happens from here. BTW- I did try to find WHERE in mcx I can assciate bgls with mcx. Not usre where to look.
 
Tom, et al- fixed the problem. Went to properties of a bgl and changed - opens with... and navigated to mcx. worked.
