  1. Selbstverständlich kannst Du den MSFS jederzeit neu installieren. Auf dem gleichen System oder einem anderen. Entscheidend ist, dass er unter dem gleichen Microsoft Account installiert wird.

    Installationvorgang unterbrechen/pausieren erachte ich als schlechte Idee. Nur weil es angeboten wird, muss man es nicht machen. Man schaltet ja auch den Rechner nicht während eines Windows Updates aus.

    Will the Otter have GTN 750 GPS compatibility by PMS50? Be nice if it did as other airplane addon companies are now making this happen. If already asked apologies, but couldn't be bothered to sift through 51 pages of this thread to find out.

     

    You know there is a search box on top of this page, where you can search in this topic? ;) 

     

    That search came up with this post as first result:

    Someone (who likes red wine) said (above) "also [the answer] to the question when the Twotter will be released." I wonder what Twotter he was talking about?

     

    And where do you see a link to "calendar week" in that quote?

     

    The "connection" of if to be a calendar week was done by users, although the origins of the number had been explained already. 

     

    A number without any unit measure says nothing - that's the idea behind 42 and that's what made it so famous in Douglas Adams' book.

  4. Aerosoft One will show add-ons only as "installed" if they had been installed through Aerosoft One, and are located now in the "Aerosoft One Library".

     

    If you hit the "install" button, the uninstaller of the installer version will be called. Afterwards you will be able to install the add-on through Aerosoft One again. That's just a question of a hand full of mouse clicks.

     

    Advantage of doing so is, that the add-on will from now on be managed by Aerosoft One, including getting updated.

     

  5. Hello Arseni, 

     

    Aerosoft One does not update add-ons which have been bought through the MFSF marketplace. They can only be updated through the marketplace itself, aș Microsoft add some DRM stuff to the original files. 

     

    With Aerosoft One you can manage all supported add-ons which have been bought through any other store. 

     

  6. Alle Shops werden automatisch mit Updates versorgt in dem Augenblick, in dem ein Update freigegeben wird. Es liegt dann an den Shops wie lange sie benötigen, um ein Update ihren Kunden zur Verfügung zu stellen.

     

    Du kannst nun entweder darauf warten, dass simMarket seinen Download aktualisiert, oder Du verwendest Aerosoft One für die Verwaltung Deiner Aerosoft Add-Ons:

    Updates of installed products will also continue to be notified through ASUpdater or only through ASOne?

     

    If you installed an add-on via Aerosoft One, updates will only be provided through Aerosoft One (and not AS Updater).

    If you installed an add-on via an installer, updates will be provided through AS Updater (and not Aerosoft One).

    On the other hand, it would be interesting to be able to manage more than one account from Aerosoft One.

     

    You can logout from Aerosoft One at any time and login again using any account you wish.

  8. If you are unsing the MSFS Addons Linker to organize all your MSFS add-ons in your own folder structure logic and only have those add-ons in your MSFS Community folder which are needed for a certain flight, you might find this article useful.

     

    Aerosoft One introduces it's own Aerosoft One Library folder in which all downloaded and installed content is getting installed into. Just like the Orbx Library which is created by the Orbx Central tool (if you wish so).

     

    So beside your own "library" folder you have created for the MSFS Addons Linker there is now another library folder. With this the question arrises, how to get your Aerosoft One add-ons comfortably managed also by the MSFS Addons Linker?

     

    One solution which has been already discussed a few times here in the forum would be to simply copy or move the relevant folder from the Aerosoft One Library to your MSFS Addons Linker library. While this will of course technically work, you are cut off from updates which might get downloaded from Aerosoft One in the future. Unless of course, you copy/move a downloaded update manually again.

     

    A more elegant solution is to use Symbolic Links to make your Aerosoft One add-ons visible within your MSFS Addons Linker library. Those symbolic links are what the MSFS Addons Linker as also Aerosoft One are using. The beauty of them is, that you can chain multiple of such symbolic links together.

     

    Like this:

     

    • Add-on in Aerosoft One Library --> Symbolic Link (manually created) in MSFS Addons Linker library --> Symbolic Link (created by MSFS Addons Linker) in MSFS Community folder

     

     

    The following will show what you need to do step by step...

     

    1) Install add-on via Aerosoft One

     

    AO1.png

     

    Please note the "article number" of this add-on. We will need it later on.

     

     

    2) Delete Symbolic Link which has been created by Aerosoft One

     

    AO2.png

     

    Aerosfot One creates a Symbolic Link into the MSFS Community folder. Where ever you have this Community folder located on your machine, get into it and delete that Symbolic Link. It is not needed!

     

     

    3) Locate installed add-on in Aerosoft One Library

     

    AO3.png

     

    Open the "Aerosoft One Library\Add-ons" folder and locate the newly installed add-on. This is where the "article number" from step 1 comes in handy. Copy the entire path of the add-on folder into your Windows clipbard (Ctrl+C)

     

     

    4) Build command to create our own Symbolic Link

     

    Symbolic Links to folders can be created with the "mklink" command with the "/J" parameter. 

     

    AO4.png

     

    The next parameter (target) tells where the symbolic links should be created into. This is a folder within your MSFS Addons Linker Library. It can have any name. For example, I use the ICAO code of an airport add-on in capital letters as prefix.

     

    The last parameter (source) tells to where the symbolic link should point to. This is the add-on folder within the Aerosoft One Library.

     

    Put all together (line 7) and copy it into the Windows clipbaord (Ctrl+C).

     

     

    5) Run the MKLINK command in a DOS prompt

     

    Press the "Windows Key"+R, enter "cmd" and hit "Enter". Now press "Ctrl+V" to paste the mklink command into the command line

     

    AO5.png

     

    Press "Enter" to run the command

     

    AO6.png

     

     

    6) Enjoy the new add-on within your MSFS Addons Linker

     

    AO7.png

     

     

     

    Having done all this you can manage the newly installed add-on with the MSFS Addons Linker and if your Aerosoft One offers you to install an update, just let it do so. Nothing else needs to be done in that moment.

     

     

    Update 20.09.2021: I need to change the previous statement. When installing an update, Aerosoft One will create a new Symbolic Link into the MSFS Community folder. So after installing an update you need to repeat Step 2.
