Re: Location of fsx.cfg

I have this strange problem with the "view hidden files" checked.
I can see the directory AppData\roaming where Lockheed-Martin\P3D directory and P3d.cfg resides, but there is no Microsoft|FSX directory where FSXcfg should be.
As far as the scenery.cfg is not hidden and resides in the main FSX directory, but after adding sceneries to the scenery library, the file is not modified, but I can see the new sceneries while flying.
I don't know if this is an issue, but I did't have this problem under Windows 7 (now I have Windows 10).
Thanks for the assistance

The active scenery cfg is located C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX and it is hidden by default, probably the same for P3d. This is the one you need to delete and let it create a new one if it gets corrupted and you get scenery errors.

Excellent short-cut, Rick!.... :clap: ...!

Paul....short-cuts are always nice!.... :D ...!

Sorry It was my fault. I use total commander to manage the files and I activated the function "show hidden files" and in fact I can see the appdata and programdata directories but without Microsoft directory.
using explorer, Microsoft directories are there.
I believe is a bug in Total Commander.
Thanks anyway to all people that tryed to help.
