Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Missing bitmaps in new XP 11 download purchase.

Recommended Posts

  • I am missing the files below in red from my bitmaps folder. I downloaded a newly purchased XP11 download version. Didn't touch anything. It installed it to the deskttop. When I tried to open XP11 it said "could not open the graphics interface and accused me of moving the xp directory out of the folder which I did not do. I discovered the missing bitmaps after looking at the log file. But now what do I do to fix this?

Having the same problem. Installed to default desktop location as instructed.





Hello Paul 🙂


if   'C:\Users/Dad/Desktop/X-Plane 11/'  is the install directory of X-Plane,

you have to start X-plane from inside of this folder.

Using a copy of xplane.exe placed on your desctop (or somewhere else) will not work.


Please check the existence of these files:


"C:\Users/Dad/Desktop/X-Plane 11/Resources/bitmaps/black.png"

"C:\Users/Dad/Desktop/X-Plane 11/Resources/bitmaps/black_opaque.png"
"C:\Users/Dad/Desktop/X-Plane 11/Resources/bitmaps/white.png"

"C:\Users/Dad/Desktop/X-Plane 11/Resources/bitmaps/checkerboard.png"
