• 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.

FSXA SDK Installation with Gold-Edition

Hi, maybe this was asked before, Ididn't find answers in the forum:
I have to install FSX in my new PC.

The Guide in SDK Installation says:
FSX Acceleration Pack OR FSX Gold Pack users[edit]
To install the SDK for FSX Acceleration Pack OR FSX Gold Pack:
1. Install the RTM SDK from FSX Deluxe Edition disk 1, (see 3.1.1 FSX Deluxe RTM users instructions above).
2. Insert your Acceleration Pack DVD.

I have installed the 3 DVD from the Gold Edition. How can I install the RTM SDK from FSX Deluxe Edition disk 1? In my Gold Version are Disc 1 and 2 (Professional Edition) and the Acceleration DVD.
There is no 'FSX Deluxe Edition disk 1' ? I have the German Version without Deluxe!
Please can somebody help?

AFAIK Deluxe and Professional edition are pretty much the same.
So on your Disc 1 you should find the RTM SDK.

I have the "Professional edition" too and everything I was told about the "Deluxe edition" applied to it.
Hi Dave,
thankyou very much for the very quick answer. I searched on the DVD 1 and there is only a folder named 'SDK' not 'RTM SDK'. But I found an old pdf with instructions for installing SDK from 2013. Obviously I have it from my first Installation. I will see if I can use this one.

Thank you
