Makerwys Error?

Good afternoon

I hope you are well.

I have recently purchased your program, and I am so looking forward to this.

I am unfortunately getting an issue with updating my airport data base.

It comes up with a warning of Error make Makerwys.exe and will not load a data base. I have tried updating via the in program option and from the folder and both will not work.

I am using Trend Micro and have added the FSIpanel folder and exe files to the exemption list. I have also started the program in Administrator, all without any luck. The program is installed in C drive (I did have it in D drive) and P3D is in D drive.

Below is a copy of the log file. Not sure if this is the correct one as it does not have much in it.

Thank you for your help.


13.08 04:43:09 FSiPanel started, Order Number : 1971
13.08 04:43:12 Database access OK
13.08 04:43:13 SimConnect Exception : 9
13.08 04:43:13 SimConnect Exception : 7

I fixed this by installing manually MakeRunways. Just download and unzip MakeRunways in the P3D root folder. You will notice that the package contains the LorbySceneryExporter which I think is the problem with FSiPanel, but until J-P fixes it you can use this workaround. After you run the UpdateDB in FsiPanel should work now.

Hi Sunny

Thank you very much for this.

I found this was the case and once I installed the 2 files into P3D all works like a dream.

JP has been a great help via email too.

Fantastic piece of software.
