This is weird, I loaded FSX this morning and although my Addons in listed and FSUIPC is there (although even this has dissapeared occassionally while re-loading) Instant Scenery is no longer  there. I checked the dll in USERS and it appears unchanged. Anyone got any ideas?

Make sure that there's nothing at the very end of the dll.xml file (in your users.) Go to the very end of the last line in the list and just hit delete a few times, even though it may look like there's no characters there. Sometimes a stray character will wind up there for some reason that messes things up. it may even be an invisible character. Long shot, but worth a try.

I had to manually add these IS3 lines to C:\Users\????????\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\dll.xml to get FSX:SE to incorporate it.

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased Flight Simulator X Steam Edition and wanted to try Instant Scenery 3.07 but I cannot manage to get it in the menu.

The installer poped up the message that the register has been filled and the dll.xml too, in fact, I checked what you mentioned above but it does not seem I have this kind of issues.

There's now an empty space between menu elements so probably there's something odd ? I cannot easily find information about that on google and maybe you can provide me some help.

Menu Item missing ?

Thank you in advance,

Well, I then tried to replace the provided SDK with the one from prepar3D (v4, because I can't find the v1.4 and have nothing to lose except time) and I retrieved back the Multiplayer menu item, but I don't see the mod menu item..

Well, I assumed the mod was putting the Instant Scenery on the main menu but in fact it was on the ingame menu.

I did not managed to make it work yet, it does not appear on the menu Add-Ons. I have this message that seem to explain why :


I don't know if I forgot something or what, here is my dll.xml :

I am only interested in knowing when (if at all) IS-3 will be available for Prepar3D V4.
It worked fine for me in earlier versions.

Well, according to the SDK directory from the FSX Steam Edition, I am not using Prepar3D v4 at all.

Maybe I can give it a shot replacing all the SDK content by the one provided by the Prepar3D v4 solution ?

Thanks for the reply,

Hello,
It has nothing to do with Steam or FSX, IS-3 worked fine in Prepar3D version 2 and 3. As it needs some adjustment for each version, it did not work any longer in Version 4. Already from the beginning of version 4 there are vague messages about when support for V4 will be there, but now after a year or so, still there is no version available for 4. After all, now version 4 of Prepar3D is by far the most outstanding sim in terms of functionality and display-quality.
Many scenery-builders regret that as IS-3 was a magnificent tool. So I also hope that update will come soon.

According to sources, further development of Instant Scenery is dead because Lockheed Martin broke it too many times.

Hello,
I do have the installer InstantScenery 3_4 of June 15, 2017. The installer runs completely, giving no messages but fails to update the existing P3d.dll of April 3, 2015.
In the AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3d V4\dll.xml the reference towards the P3D.dll is correct, but there is no sign of activity, in the menubar Add-ons Instant Scenery is not listed. Oviously that old dll will not run in V4.
So, what makes you think IS3 is working in v4?
with kind regards,
Piet de Geus

IS doesn't work in P3D v4. Period. This issue has been discussed many, many times on this forum.

I bought Instant Scenery 3 last week. I had my FSX Steam Integrity checked by Steam site.
My FSX SE setup is complete and in good order.  
My FSX SE is in : C:\Steam\\\\\ FSX   I Install IS3 (as Administrator) following default path
in C:\ProgramFiles (X86)  Than the Install Module screen comes: It shows my 2 SIM path's as
taken from the WIN Registry, the path's are correct C:\FS9 and C:\Steam\\\\FSX and I confirm them. When I start FS9  IS3 is added in the Addon Flight1 menu
When I start FSX I get an error message: 
There come several screens and error messages after this, but in short: if I continue with the Add-on (IS3) my FSX will ultimately Crash to Desktop. 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is the IS3  : error log:

Can anyone in Flight1 Customer support please help me get my InstantScenery 3 working
and resolve the incompatibility between IS3 ver 3.7.0.1  and my FSX version: 10.0.63003.0
Thanks in Advance  Peter
