Hi Hardy I've had PSX on my system since 8/2014. My dvd is ver. 10.0.0. I recently had a system problem and have to reinstall PSX however I can't get the dvd to install. the error is  java.io.FileNotFoundException.Aerowinx Operations Manual.pdf (The system cannot find the file specified). I have the latest version of Java and my dvd drive is working. Is the disc now defective? This is only the second time I've used it since the original install in 2014. Any help is appreciated.  Joe

Hi Joe,

can you load Aerowinx Operations Manual.pdf directly from your DVD using a PDF viewer of your choice?

Yes Hardy it will load the manual however it takes a few times of ejecting the disk to get it to read. I tried other discs and it reads them first time no problem.

Even when it does read I get that error message i posted when trying the installer.jar file

Your DVD seems to be getting old. Can you email me?

jtsjc1

Sure Hardy just let me know your email.

Sometimes you can revive a slightly damaged CD or DVD by carefully polishing it with a light liquid cleaning agent and a soft cloth. Typically there are microscratches on the glossy surface that scatter the light of the reading laser.

Thank you Hoppie I did email Hardy. I tried to polish it but still the same issue.

So after much appreciated help from Hardy I have reinstalled PSX. However now when I double click on AerowinxStart I get a popup Notepad box with what looks like the file but it won't start. I tried right click to start with Java no luck. This never happened in the whole time I had PSX installed previously. I downloaded 10.155 and even tried it after that. I also checked the errors log file and there's nothing showing errors. Anyone have an idea of what's going on?

Smells like Windows lost the knowledge on how to relate the .jar files with the correct Java VM/interpreter.

There have been other people who found a workaround but I forgot... it's a Windows/Java issue, not PSX.

Thanks Hoppie probably one of these damn Windows updates they're constantly sending. That's quite possible. PSX has always been one of the most reliable programs I have. I honestly didn't think it was a PSX problem.

Problem is solved! Thank you to forum member Rod who had the solution which was go into settings and associate the .jar files with Java. It was set to notepad and that was the reason for notepad opening the AerowinxStart file. And of course thank you Hardy for your help with re-install and the helpful links. Most important thank you for PSX it is a fabulous simulation and your customer support is first class you are a gentleman. Hoppie thank you also for the hints. Have a great weekend men and have a drink on me!

The NG FMC will be next addition.
