I am unable to complete installation due to this critical error.

After browsing this forum, I tried running all of the following files as administrator, to no avail:

UTXUSA21IM
IMUTXUSAPATCHP3D3
UTXINSTALLMANAGER
UTXUSAV21P3D3
UTXUSAV21DATA

I verified that the scenery.cfg file was in the requested location (initially it was not but I copied it there).

This is a new PC build with no prior simulation software installed. Thanks!

You should not be running all those files manually, especially if you have no idea how they work or what they do.

You should also not be copying scenery.cfg files around as this may cause even more issues.

The main one you should be running as Administrator is the "Install Manager for UTX USA" link under the "Flight One Software" Windows Start menu.

As you do not say which version of P3D you are using, it is also not clear whether you should be running the patch or not. Also, as the current UTX USA V2 release version available for download from the Flight 1 web-site is version 2.3, I'm not sure why you are trying to run the 2.1 installer anyway (which does not support P3D V3)?

I also get an error message with Ultimate Terrain X-Europe because FSX is not on C: but on D:
state he gives
The SCENERY.CFG or others similator file (s) could not be located at the expected location below:
C: \ Users \ OpaNie \ AppData \ Roaming \ Microsoft \ FSX \ SCENERY.CFG
What am I doing wrong and how can this be solved?

Even if you install FSX on another drive (i.e. D:), the SCENERY.CFG is always going to be installed on the root C: drive.

Niek,

Can you please let us know if you are trying to install to FSX-SE and not to FSX? If FSX-SE have you ever had FSX installed on your system before and removed it? When you run the UTX Europe Install Manager (make sure that you are doing so by right-clicking on it and selecting "Run as administrator") which flightsim platforms does it offer for you to install to?

Thank you for the reply
I use FSX-SE,
What I did is delete FSX-SE first
There is no more folder on the PC (C: \ D: \) that starts with FSX or FSX-SE
I have reinstalled FSX-SE via STREAM
Then a UTX Europe Install Manager as administrator
Then he comes again with the error message:
The SCENERY.CFG or other similator file (s) could not be found at the expected location below:
C: \ Users \ OpaNie \ AppData \ Roaming \ Microsoft \ FSX \ SCENERY.CFG
I do not know anymore

Jeff after a lot of searching and trying, I succeeded
Not in the way it should, but it still works
If you still want to know how I did it, I should describe it
I only have to do it in translate.google because my English is not good
I read it, but a little question that might be easy to answer:
The subsurface colors (landscape) do not work well in UTX V2
Maybe an institution that is not right
Maybe you know the answer, otherwise I will continue looking
Try to include a photo

Sadly the image is too small for me to understand the issue you are reporting with landscape colours.
