Hi all,

I've scoured the forum trying to troubleshoot this problem on my own but to no avail.

I've done all the requirements:

I've gone to the options folder and browsed to the fsx home directory folder which is
C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\MICROSOFT GAMES\MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR X

I then click the settings tab and save.
I then close fsbuild and restart.

I then build my flight plan (EDDF-EHAM) and go to the Export To tab and click the FS2004/FSX option and then the PMDG option. I click build and I get this error:

Unable to create FS2000 file C:\Users\Owner\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\EDDF-EHAM.PLN
Created PMDG 737NG File C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\MICROSOFT GAMES\MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR X\PMDG\FLIGHTPLANS\EDDFEHAM.rte

I then went to the FS Build .cfg folder and added the fs2004 pln line to as instructed by several posts in this forum regarding this problem. Here is what my .cfg looks like afterward:


[FSBUILD]
AUTOREFRESH_DELAY=1
MAGYEAR=2002
AIRCRAFT=B747-400 PMDG
SBPC_SERVER=www.vatsim.net
ROUTELINE=1
NATRAKURL=www.natroutes.glideslope.de/html/nats.php3


[MS-FLIGHTSIMULATOR]
FS_HOME=C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\MICROSOFT GAMES\MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR X
FS2004 PLN=C:\Users\Owner\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files
[FLY!]

[PS1]

[X-PLANE]

[STARTUP]
CLEARMAP_BEFORE_BUILD
DISPRTEWPTSONMAP
AUTOREFRESH_ON

I then saved these settings on the notepad and tried to export again, but I got the same message. I restarted fsbuild and tried to export again, I got teh same message. I tried all of those steps several times only to run into the same error message.
I even tried changing the export directory for fs2004/fsx to the flightplan folder under documents directly, and of course it didn't like that either.

I'm stuck and could use some direction. Thanks in advance.

Hi CJ,

I know this is a bit old, but thought that would-be Googlers would hopefully find the answer...

It is easier that it would first appear( it stumped me for a bit too ). The 'settings' window doesn't show the FULL path to the folder it is trying to save to; even if you expand the data grid. When you tried and received:
Quote:
Unable to create FS2000 file C:\Users\Owner\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\EDDF-EHAM.PLN
Created PMDG 737NG File C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\MICROSOFT GAMES\MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR X\PMDG\FLIGHTPLANS\EDDFEHAM.rte


It actually told you where it was trying to save the file. Your PMDG plan created successfully, but the .PLN did not. Though the options says 'FS2004/FSX', it actually only saves using the 2004 path. This is where you are running into trouble.

The Fix: Either use FSX( xml ) to export to the correct folder, or: Go to your Documents folder, where 'C:\users\CJ\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files' is located, and create another folder without the 'X'. This is the default FS2004 folder.

So you will have 'C:\users\CJ\Documents\Flight Simulator Files, in the same folder with 'C:\users\CJ\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files'.

As for other formats, you will need to try to export the FP type, and when it errors, read the FULL path from the error window. Then create the path( even if a bunch of empty folders ), so that your plan will export correctly. It sounds like a bunch to deal with, but is pretty simple.

NOTE: What I did, was create a folder on my desktop called 'EXPORTED PLANS'. Then I set my 'FS HOME' path to this folder, and for every flight plan type I create, I add folders to this so the plan exports there. That way, I don't have to go all over the place trying to find the plans.

Hope that helps! ;-)
