No lights upon reinstallation (CS 767-300)

I recently tried getting back into the 767-300, as the initial learning curve was too great.  After using another 3rd party aircraft (not a 767),I have since gotten a handle on this.  Since my initial installation of this software, I had uninstalled FSX twice and reinistalled this program both times, but haven't used it until today.

When I went to use it, I noticed there were 0 external lights, including landing, but the landing "reflection" light came on.

I am not sure I am in the right channel, but this wasn't an issue when I first installed it. I have looked through the other topics.

I have tried to uninstall and reinstall, and did a complete wipe of of the files CS uses.

So I am stuck.  If anyone knows what I did wrong or what I can to fix, please help

Do you have the following files in the FSX\Effects folder (type cs767 in the search bar in Windows Explorer (see attached image)):

cs767_navwhi.fx
cs767_navgre.fx
cs767_navred.fx


You may as well check on these ones too:

cs767_smoke_dark.fx
cs767_edge.fx
cs767_sf.fx

although I don't think they have anything to do with the lights.

I have figured it out.  Awhile ago I installed a program to display better lights,  it kept crashing my FSX so I uninstalled it.  Since I have been using other aircraft almost exclusively, I didn't notice it not returning the normal gauges and lights back to normal.

I used gauges_recovery_fsx.zip and it corrected the problem.

Sorry for this.
