Hi Jsapair.

Great to see that you are slowly getting back up to speed.  FS2020's primary target platform for release is the PC.  Xbox is the next target after the PC release. It is quite possible that a fully functional version of FS2020 may not be available for quite some time yet.  In addition, it is unknown whether RTMM sceneries will be able to run with the new Microsoft simulator.  Time will tell.

For now, my focus remains on P3Dv4.5.


Thanks, Brad, Norm, Dex, Steve and the others who worked on this update.  It looks great!

Hi Bill,

The eSwitcher and the flight sim do not talk to each other.  The eSwitcher simply changes RTMM's seasonal files to match the date chosen.  Since FSX & P3D only change seasonal looks at month boundaries, you could set a date, e.g. July 7th, in eSwticher and then  the sim will match for any date that is set in the sim as long as it is within the month of July.   

Hope this helps.

Rod, Sue, Norm....

Its embarrassing.  Or maybe it's between embarrassing and having done/changed something different so it works.  Anyway...

Yes, FSX is in the Program x86 Folder.  Other than that I didn't really do anything else except run the .exe as Admin (which I thought I was doing).  None the less, sometimes just leaning on the support of great communities like this wakes us up.  It's all working.  Thank you for your guidance.  Thank your for your help.  And I don't blame you if you are rolling your eyes, but.... THANK YOU!

Hope to run into you all in the Lodge.


Hi Darryl,

Glad you got it working!

Hi Darryl,

Yes, it sounds like your FSX installation does not want to allow the app to have access.  Sue and Norm have provided some good ideas. Let us know what you find.

Hi Darryl,

Ok, so sounds like the App does work on your system when run from the Desktop.  Of course, that was just a test to verify that it worked on your system and for you to see it operate.  Based on the folder structure you identified in your first post, the RTMMeSwitcher.exe file needs to be placed inside your Add On Scenery folder.  If that is where you had it before make sure you delete the old RTMM eSwitcher Log.txt file and the old curseasonset.xml file which should also be in the Add On Scenery folder.   That will give you a clean start.   

Run the RTMMeSwitch.exe file that is now in your Add On Scenery folder and let me know what happens.  I also want to know if it creates new versions of the RTMM eSwitcher Log.txt and the curseasonset.xml file.

Hi Darryl,

This is the first report I have seen where the eSwticher starts and just disappears.  Let's see if the RTMM eSwitcher.exe file will run on your desktop so we can get more data.   Copy just the RTMMeSwitcher.exe file to your desktop and run should show an initial start box that says at the bottom:

Please wait.....
Checking RTMM scenery and restoring last season set

then that box is quickly overlaid by a message that says:

Unable to find current season settings.  The RTMM eSwicher is either being run for the first time or the settings file is mssing.  The season will be set to the default of 'NoSeason' which you can change after confirming this message.  A settings file will be created when the RTMM eSwitcher is closed.

Then the app waits for you to click on the OK button.  (note: at the same time a RTMM eSwitcher log.txt file appears on the desktop)

Can you get this far?

If so, click on OK and a larger box with a Warning message that missing season maps were detected displays over the top of the smaller start box and should be waiting for you to click on OK. 

Does the app get that far?

 If so, click on OK and see if the full app opens up.  You should also have two files added to your desktop the RTMM eSwitcher Log.txt file which I already mentioned and the curseasonset.xml file.

Once your done with the test or want to run the test agian make sure you delete the two files that were created on your desktop by the app.

Let me know the results of each of the steps mentioned above.

Great article!  I did not know that Clem Tillion's daughter ran The Saltry.  Very interesting stuff. 

Thanks, Bob.

Can you just buy Steam FSX which is about $25 to solve the problem?

Have you tried uninstalling FSX and then reinstalling all from scratch?

Do the other drives show up in the list when you run windows disk management......just type in disk in the windows search box and that app should show up.
