• 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.

FSX SDK fail to install in Win10

I cannot get to Ransomware Protection. How to access that? I need to login as administrator, right? It is a brand new computer with Win10. I need to find out how to do.
I also found that SODE jetway does not work well. Even I have modified the AircraftExit.ini to add more door to the default 747, there still only one door available for SODE jetway. Anything to do about this as well.
I have clearly stated in my post how to access ransomware in settings [see 3rd item in image below]:

In Win 10 open your settings and type in the search box : rans that should be enough as a dropdown list will appear.
Select "Ransomware Protection" and see as below.

This is the way to find ANY setting in the Settings of win 10. If you still don't see it then maybe you are not logged in with Admin privileges and a trip to the User settings for Account elevation is called for.

There are two levels of 'admin' in Windows 10. There is the absolute low-level admin account that is used for installation and the admin account you think you have on logging in, but is actually more like the WindowsXP Power User. Ransomware protection settings are only available with the low-level admin. I forget how to enable low-level admin because I did it so long ago.

More information concerning the "Ransomware Protection" options:

"Unfortunately, if you have third-party antivirus software installed and Windows Defender's real-time protection is disabled, the Ransomware Protection features screen and the Controlled Folder Access feature won't be accessible."

Any "third-party" antivirus (meaning, that is not Windows Defender) will not have access to this, such as Norton.
