Hi Mark,
I did a fresh download and install and I have the same problem. I took the CS F-18 up for a flight and the weapons even locked on the target and I fired the weapon and could hear it but could not see it and it gave no indication of hitting the target. I'm not sure what is happening.

Strange indeed! I'll see if I can figure out what's going on.

Note. FSX-SE is Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition. And though I hate to say it, it does seem to be better than FSX. Undecided

That's strange. It's working fine for me. I'll uninstall it, remove the registry entry, and install/reactivate it in FSX-SE and see if it still works correctly for me.


Edit Dec 21st, 2017 at 5:48am: I did all the above, and it still works perfectly in FSX-SE (in Windows 7 Professional 64bit). It's very hard to do the above in Windows 10 Pro 64bit as I am still having strange problems with that OS.  Sad

Right click on the installer (csw001_1000.exe), select "Run as Administrator" from the list. This will ensure that the program is installed with admistrative rights, and that should allow it to run.

Out of curiosity, is Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition (from Dovetail Games) installed in C:\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX? I'mĀ  wondering if installing it on the C: drive might be causing the problem. Mine is installed in M:\steamapps\common\FSX (on a different drive/partition even to where Steam is installed, which is E:\Steam).


Note. Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition, by Dovetail Games, is referred to as FSX-SE so we don't have to write the whole thing down each time we refer to it. Wink

Try this:

1. Uninstall Weapon For FSX
2. Turn your Anti Virus off, or disable the shields (if you have that option).
3. Check-In to Your Profile > Select Product (Weapon [FSX]) > Extended Download Service > Get New Links
4. Download Weapon For FSX from the provided link.
5. After the download is complete, right click on the installer (csw001_1000.exe), and select "Run as Administrator" from the list.
6. After it has finished installing, go to x:\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX and find the fsx.exe file, right click on it, and select "Run as Administrator" from the list.

Once FSX-SE has started, select the Captain Sim Boeing F/A-18 Armed Defender, and any start location you want. When it is ready to fly, press Shift+1 to see if the Weapon Control Panel pops up.

Hopefully it will be working correctly.

Hi Mark,
I want to install the captain sim weapons into FSX SE. Do I need to make any changes in the path way so the weapons program can find FSX SE when I install? I am running Windows7.

So far I am enjoying the Steam Edition as it seems the graphics are better and the frame  is way better than I had expected it to be. I hope the weapons program will work in FSX SE.
Thanks Mark, you have been a great help to me on other issues in the past. By the way Merry Christmas!!!

I had to browse to the M:\steamapps\common\FSX location. This might be because my FSX installation details are still in the registry (even though the HDD/partition went AWOL). Not have a selection for FSX-SE on the installer, might mean you have to do what I did anyway.

I have FSX SE installed on my D drive. The pathway is set up in this fashion: Local Disk\Program Files(x86)\Steam\Steamapps\common\FSX

Hi Mark,
I got it installed and it works wonderfully well. I just created the path way to FSX in the steamaaps folder. I installed Steam on my D drive not my C drive as I mentioned above, that was a clerical error on my part.


If anyone needs to know the path, this is the path I created. But be mindful of which hard drive the Steam folder is installed on.

computer\Local Disk D\Program Files(x86)\Steam\Steamapps\common/FSX

Once again, thanks for your help Mark.

Steam allows you to install in other locations:

I have steam installed on my E: drive - E:\Steam - so if FSX had been installed there, it would be installed in E:\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX

I also have other steam libraries:

G:\SteamLibrary
I:\SteamLibrary
M:\SteamLibrary

So FSX-SE could have been installed in G:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\FSX, I:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\FSX, or M:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\FSX. I chose to install FSX-SE on the M: drive because it's a small SSD (I consider it too small to install the OS on).

As you can see, my Steam games are installed across four drives/partitions.
