Steam says updating but does nothing
Finally, a number of add-ons, for security and/or version control, look at information within or about the files that make up FSX and, because changes have been made, the executables and DLLs for FSX: SE have been recompiled.
Things aren’t where they were and file versions, sizes and dates have changed, so that can cause problems.
FSX Steam Edition – if you do not have another FSX installation – puts these in the same places as the Microsoft installer, so that’s not a problem.
If you have an existing installation, however, more about which I’ll discuss shortly, then FSX: SE uses different App Data folders which, again, can cause installers to fail.
The reasons for this are that FSX: SE is not installed to the standard .
Likewise, the entries in the Windows Registry, known as ‘keys’, are also different, so installers may well not find them.
That’s exactly what this article is here to discuss. It is FSX plus the Acceleration add-on, which includes Service Pack 2, so if you’re currently successfully running FSX, surely you won’t get anything from buying this, right?
The link at the end of the section above proves the point nicely, but if you check the developers’ forums for the add-ons you want to install, you’ll probably find advice on how to get their add-on working.On the other hand, and this is critical, most things with FSX: SE.What stops most of them working immediately is not the code changes, but rather the executable installers for those add-ons.This will update the firmware on all attached watchman boards (if needed), which is the tracking component of HMDs and controllers.If the update fails, run it again and it should complete the second time.
Search for steam says updating but does nothing:
At the moment: Update may report some benign errors about rejecting image and invalid hardware revision even with successful update of watchman board.
