The problem

As you can see on the picture above – my brand new Cessna 337 looks weird. Cockpit textures are missing and some gouges do not work.

The same happened to several other aircraft – both default and payware. In case of default aircraft – instruments were missing – there were transparent holes in Cessna 172 cockpit and an empty panel in Mooney Bravo.

It happened to me twice – both times after I installed Carenado aircraft but I am not sure if the Carenado installer caused the problem. My other suspect is Eaglesoft’s DA-42 which on both occasions was installed a moment before.

The cause and my fix

Transparent cockpit textures - fix

Transparent cockpit textures – fix

As you can see – there are some negative values in trusted section of my fsx.cfg file.

To solve this problem – simply delete minus signs from each line in [Trusted] section of your fsx.cfg file.

You may also delete the lines with minus signs – but this is not necessary.

If some permissions are not recorded properly because of this bug – you may be asked to confirm some add-ons on next restart of your Flight Simulator X or when you select your plane.

Probable initial cause

It is possible that the problem lies deeper – in Windows registry. It was described by PMDG support here.

In short – you need to open registry (Windows key + R -> then type regedit -> then press enter), find the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WinTrust\Trust Providers\Software Publishing and make sure that it’s value is 0x23c00 (in case you are not sure – this are zeros not “O”). It may be shown as 0x00023c00.

Check your registry

Check your registry

If you have anything different – double click “State” and enter new value – 0x23c00. Make sure that hexadecimal system is selected.
