unload archive concorde base pack, final error break off. Not accede to archive, other arhives airplanes good.
I can´t quite relate to what you´re trying to communicate .... other than the fact, you say, you seem to be experiencing some kind of difficulty with the CONCORDE basepack only.
There have been a couple of queries posted here recently regarding what folk seem to describe as being "a buggy ZIP file".
I´ll try an settle this once and for all .... in so far as I can interpret what may be happening here and also now after having performed a cross-check/recheck of what we´ve uploaded and offer here ....
Out of curiosity .... I´ve, today/this morning, downloaded the CONCORDE base pack file from this website .... and .... I´ve extracted it´s contents into a temporary folder outside of FS .... as should be done.
From my experience today .... I can only confirm there appears to be "ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER" in (a) accessing and downloading this file .... and (b) extracting its contents .... which means installation should not be a problem for anyone !
I also need to say ....
It´s rare, but, not entirely uncommon for files to become corrupted during downloading processes and for whatever network reason might apply, but, this´s something we/HJG have absolutely no control over. I´d expect this to possibly be an issue in respect of lower speed/dial-up connections only .... "MAYBE" .... if at all.
Just because an end user gets a corrupted ZIP file after downloading and trying to extract it .... that by no means implies theres anything wrong with the ZIP file we provide here for downloading.
ONCE AGAIN .... after having downloaded and extracted the contents of the CONCORDE base pack ZIP file today .... I simply can´t find any problems, at ail, with this particular file.
I downloaded and installed the Concorde Base Pack, but there is one problem:
Installation Instruction says: "3. The folder named "CONCORDE FS9 PANEL MODULES FOLDER" contains a total of 2X individual DLL files. Install the entire "contants" (only) of this particular folder inside the FS9 "MODULES" folder .... then locate you FS9.CFG file and edit it to read precisely as follows:-
PLEASE NOTE .... it is recommended that the above edit be copied and pasted ("as-is") to the FS9.CFG file simply to avoid any potential for typographical errors which will then cause this edit not to function.
If an [OLDMODULES] section does not already exist in your FS9.CFG then simply add it to the very buttom of the FS9.CFG file.
PLEASE NOTE .... this edit is required to eliminate a perfectly harmless "Potentially Incompatible Software" warning when FS is started. If confronted with this warning before applying this edit then simply select "YES" or "CONTINUE" in response to the warning prompt and both the panel/gauges and aircraft will load into FS without any problems or limitations whatsoever."
There is no fs9.cfg file in my fs2004-folder, only fs2000.cfg, which had no oldmodule-section. I pasted in that recommended text at the very bottom of it, but still there is this error message at the loading of the game(though the game is working). The cfg-file now looks :
How can I remove this error-message-problem? (without uninstalling concorde;) ?

PLEASE .... don't go editing the FS2000.CFG file in FS9 .... or any other CFG file .... other than the specified "FS9.CFG" and in regard to this particular "OLD MODULES" edit
The FS9.CFG file is "a hidden" file (thanks to M$ and their wisdom) .... and its location will vary according to the WINDOWS OS version you have.
"IF" you're using WINDOWS XP PRO .... then you'll find the "FS9.CFG" file in the following directory ....
C:\Documents and Settings\oem\Application Data\Microsoft\FS9
"IF" you're not a WINDOWS XP user .... then .... I'll have to rely upon you to do you own research, or, commit you to the help of another user of the particula OS you do have.
PLEASE NOTE .... in order to see the "FS9.CFG" file, at all. you must first have the Windows "SHOW ALL FILES" option activated.
This minor detail isn't mentioned within the Installation Instructions .... simply because it's common knowledge to by far the majorit of the community and virtue of mere mention of both the "OLD MODULES" edit and the "FS9.CFG" file.
Follow the above instructions .... but .... before you do anything I strongly recommend you remove whatever edit you've applied to the FS2000.CFG file inside FS9 .... and then "save" that change at least.
Once again .... do not edit any files other than those specified or problems can/"WILL" result.
Thank you very much for your help! I did exactly as you said, and now everything works properly. I didn´t know that the fs9.cfg-file was a hidden one and that it was located on the OS-Installdrive C, because I installed my fs9-game on the data-drive D, so I didn´t look there. I think it´s strange, that there is this fs2000.cfg-file in the fs2004-folder. What is it´s function?
My computer running system is Windows 7, but I could find the right cfg.file with your indication because it´s very similar to that of Win XP.
