Hi,

Flight1 has put together an updated version of FEX. This will be called the 2.0 series to designate that this is the version compiled by Flight1.

As many of you all know, Aerosimulations Ltd. has stopped trading, and Flight1 took over the code base. We have done work on the project and are officially updating the product to the new version 2 series.

There are not super major changes in this version, but there are a few that should be noted. Read the change list below, as well as the instructions to install.

Changes:

1. The product has been restructured so it installs quicker and takes up less disk space. About 2GB of disk space is required.

2. All updates have been consolodated into a single installer. The SHD version is included in this version. DO NOT download the separate SHD update.

3. The login system has been modified so it flows a little better, and should be less confusing.

4. Non-functional buttons have been removed. No promises, but we will make the weather button reappear should we be able to provide a solution here. We are looking at it still!

To install:

You may want to restore the default FSX clouds in the Aerosimulations version before installing this new version if you want to use the default FSX clouds later.

Download the file below. You will need to use the standard Reinstall option using your Flight1 key or account if your order is associated with a Flight1 account.

The installation will go to a different folder (do not try to install over your old version or to the FSX folder - accept the default Program Files path if you want). You DO NOT have to uninstall your current FEX version but you may want to after you confirm this version works. This one will create a desktop shortcut called "Flight Environment X 2.0 Series", and the new version will be listed under the Start/Programs/Flight One Software menu. To identify the different versions to uninstall, you will see that Aerosimulations is listed as the publisher in the remove programs area of Windows. The Flight1 version has no publisher listing. But the easiest way to remove the current version is through the Aerosimulations menu in your Start/Programs menu.

http://flight1.100megabyte.com/FEX-2.exe (1.73GB) - Use the reinstall option with your key or Flight1 account.

All new purchases now contain version 2.0.0.1 or later.

I would like to thank the early "beta testers" here in this forum for downloading and using the early version. If you downloaded this version, there are only very minor tweaks that have been done to the login screens. But, there is a new manual. Please download this expanded manual and the new main EXE if you want (unzip in to your main Program Files\Flight One Software\Flight Environment X folder). Thanks goes to Peter Hayes for working on this new manual. There will be another updated manual hopefully soon, but this one is much more in depth compared to the previous 1.xx version manual. Only download this if you had the previous beta version, as the current main download contains these files already: http://flight1.100megabyte.com/FEX-Refresh-2.zip.
