I am able to start and run SPAD manually but the dll.xml file doesn't start SPAD when FSX starts! I have installed SPAD on my F: drive (SSD) along with FSX and I think I have set up the dll.xml file per the general instructions. FSUIPC4 which is also registered in the dll.xml file runs ok in FSX.
I have followed most of the posts on this Forum regarding the setup of SPAD in the dll.xml file. I have edited the file to include SPAD.exe:
My problem is that SPAD opens when I start Windows 7! When the SPAD icon appears in the tray and when I try to open it I get the message that SPAD is waiting for FSX to open! I can't access the General menu to change the start up! I have uninstalled SPAD and reinstalled it several times trying to get to the General Menu but the same thing happens every time!
How can I get back to square one! I would like to use the dll.XML start up method but it won't work for me
!!! I have manually removed all of the SPAD files including the SPAD.ini with hope that a fresh reload of SPAD will allow me to adjust the initial settings but no luck!
I would appreciate any help that get me back to the starting point.
