I've had Win 7 since day one but never installed it.  Never had Vista with it's slightly different UAC.  Maybe this is one of those cases (like FSDS) where one should not install FSX in Program Files, but in it's own folder?
I'm still running XP SP-3 and maybe I'll just stick with it as the plethora of applications I constantly use all work.

Interesting yes - I have FSX installed not in the program files dir, so I did not see this issue. It's actually a hefty problem! I guess if I were trapped in this dilemma, I would rather run RMX as admin, and lose the drag and drop feature. Unfortunately not much I can do. If you do need to reinstall FSX one day, I would recommend you put it somewhere else!

I will update the next version of the manual with information on these issues.

Hey Dave,
very well then.  I don't have a problem with that. Even without the drag&drop functionality it is still an ingenious program! I just wanted to make you aware of the issue  Wink
Have a great day,
Vitus

Looks like a very cool little tool. But I stick to the old fashioned way of installing repaints. I don't trust any software to do this kind of stuff for me.  Grin

Oho a skeptic! Well, I admit there are sometimes when it fails, but I get about 95% success with it (I got very, very tired of doing these by hand). The new version (coming soon!) Fixes a few more bugs (with non-ASCII characters to support non-English repaints better), and also a 'install/remove aircraft' feature.
