Hi Daniel,

in the folder Aerowinx/Navigation/ there are 47 files and 2 subfolders, i.e. 49 objects.

The two subfolders are:

Aerowinx/Navigation/-New
Aerowinx/Navigation/-Old


When you want to install the new nav database, there should be one file in Aerowinx/Navigation/-New

Just one. Not more than one. And that one file is nav1803.zip

So this is what must be set before you start PSX:

Aerowinx/Navigation/-New/nav1803.zip

OK?

When PSX starts, nav1803.zip will be installed automatically, and Aerowinx/Navigation/-New/ will be empty, and the zip file will be archived in the "-Old" subfolder: Aerowinx/Navigation/-Old/nav1803.zip


Regards,

|-|ardy


If you have something like this ...

Aerowinx/Navigation/Navigation/...

... then delete that second Navigation/... and its included files.

In Aerowinx/Navigation/ there should be only two subfolders:

Aerowinx/Navigation/-New
Aerowinx/Navigation/-Old

... and 47 non-folder files.
49 objects in total.


Be sure that your Windows doesn't show the contents of a zip file that isn't actually unzipped, but looks as if it was unzipped. It may be just a preview, generated by Windows.

Just one question:

I've seen in the forum different solutions ...
My computer is a MAC PRO .
I'm ready to buy another computer mac or windows and another screen of course.

What solution do you suggest not to be disappointed?
If you cannot answer because of your position FORGET IT.
Thanks once more

If you want to hook up what we call a 'scenery generator', a system that flies a virtual camera over a virtual planet so you have the impression that you look out of the window of an aircraft, then you are looking for the various "Visual" extensions. Most are based on P3D (ex-FSX) or X-Plane. You will need to figure out first which of these two you want, which comes with a whole lot of hardware and other recommendations.

Please open a new thread 'Which scenery generator to use?' and start the discussion there. It isn't really simple to do, so spend time on research.

When a former database update ( say one from 2015 ) is used, put inside the "-New" folder, under "Navigation", instead of the lastest made available ( presently nav1803.zip ) are the additional Radar display features available, or are these only activated with the latest edition of the Nav Database ?

Ok, I suppose it'll work for Nav Databases starting at 1603....

SimWare Belgium link takes you to the 2017 nav data, and searching their site, only the 2017 nav data, and PSX itself, is available.

They appear to NOT be selling the 2018 nav data!

I don't think they're selling the 2017 cycle; they just didn't correctly update their webpage text since their last web site redesign. They are affiliated with Aerosoft Germany, and the latest download file on their server always automatially overwrites the previous version.

I'll ask them to recheck their web text.

The SimWare web page now shows the correct text again.
