Re: sbuilderx

Yes, it is best to install applications / utilities via a 'custom' path option in installers, or from ZIP packages, to locations outside the C:\Program files or C:\Program Files (x86) folder chain.

I use a D:\SBX315 folder location. :idea:

Runtime Error 13 'Type Mismatch' when importing SBX file

Thanks for the kind words ! :oops: However, I really must say that I would not know most of what I now have learned, had it not been for the generous help provided by Luis Sa', Luis Feliz-Tirado, Richard Ludowise (aka "rhumbaflappy"), Arno Gerritsen, Holger Sandmann, Jon Masterson (aka "Scruffyduck"...

Re: Runtime Error 13 'Type Mismatch' when importing SBX file

Hi Leo: In SBuilder205, "snapping" vertices to a LOD quad grid size is not the same as "clipping" content to LOD-13 "Areas". Here is a copy of my post on this sub-topic at FSDeveloper.com: https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/moving-default-airport.434301/post-714444 You may wish to review the ...

Runtime Error 13 'Type Mismatch' when importing SBX file

Hi Leo: I have just returned from my travels earlier this weekend, and am looking at your "Tokelau2" file set above.

Re: Runtime Error 13 'Type Mismatch' when importing SBX file

Hi Leo: If the size of the file set in question is not too large, it may be best to discuss the issue here in this thread, with the possibility of input by Luis Sa' and/or Luis Feliz-Tirado, and perhaps others who use SB205 as well. :idea: So, perhaps you could ZIP and attach (or link to them) ...he...

Re: Portugal Terrain - cannot reach PTSIM & runtime error 364

Hi Luis: The "uninstall" routine from the "FreeSetup" executable worked perfectly; FS9 was restored to full function. The "install" routine from the "CD" Setup also worked perfectly, but IMHO that process requires further explanation : * MakeCDComputerCode.exe " Form1 " needs to the translated to En...

Hi Leo: Does the scenario you refer to in your post immediately above pertain to " Tokelau.zip " ? BTW : I cannot recall which web forum I downloaded that file from: * FSDeveloper ... or : * PTSIM NOTE : To better understand this FS9 display issue, one needs to see the pertinent BGL files. GaryGB

Re: Runtime Error 13 'Type Mismatch' when importing SBX file

Hello Leonardo, I just was trying to find my discussion with GaryGB (he asked me to write the convertor) about this back convertor but I could not find it. The properties of Lines and Polys changed when SBuilderX came. Just an example - polys with holes did not existed in SB205. So there was no way...
