@ Andromeda ,

“Sorry, that's my fault. I copied the old installers' version in my previous message. My version is P3D v5.0.31.35253”

That is what I had thought. All ok.

Did you reboot your PC and recheck P3Dv4 ?
Yes I tried. It was no surprise. I got the same error again.
@Andromeda,

The scenery.cfg that we are interested in is located in C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5.

Right-click on it and select Properties - at the bottom of that screen, under the heading Attributes, are there any check marks there?

Jorgen
No, there are no check marks on the Attributes section. Read-Only and Hidden boxes are unchecked.

@ Andromeda,

What I would do is:

Deletet the scenery.cfg file.


In your P3D folder:

Delete generated files.

Reboot PC and test.

Reboot PC and test.

Deleted scenery.cfg file first and after ran the Delete Generated Files. When I'm opened the P3D, It generated files but nothing changed. This problem will distract me.

At one time P3Dv4 was ok, correct?

Do you have any Add-ons, Add-on scenery installed in P3Dv4 , like Orbx?

No. It gives this error since the first time I installed the program. I haven't installed the plugin or external script (like orbx) yet.

Just to verify:
You did not have P3Dv4 installed and working properly before installing P3Dv5?

No. I had reset my computer. After a long time, I decided to reinstall Prepar3D. I was wondering because V5 came out and downloaded V5 from my panel. When I received this error in V5, I downloaded V4 to see if there is a problem in the program, but I also got the same error in V4. Currently, I only have V5 on my system.

@ Andromeda ,

"No. I had reset my computer. After a long time, I decided to reinstall Prepar3D"

That may be the missing information about your setup and your current problems.


Your OS/registry may be messed up.

Okay. Something interesting has happened right now. I installed the scenery I wanted to install (it's LTFM. Not in default on P3d) with Lorby's Addon Organizer and registered it in scenery.cfg. When I opened Settings, it still gave the same error, but this time the scenario I installed in the visible airport change section appeared. I think Prepar can read my scenery.cfg file, but it has a problem showing it via Client.

I make a clean install with ISO today. My system is clear but I took this error again.

Finally I found the sollution. We changed only system locales but we have to change date format too. When I changed date format to English (American) problem fixed.

Here is the sollution. Thanks off all persons tried to help me.
