ERROR - File format not work on XP-11 = ??? = will it work ?


In the directorys readMe-file says:

"Place newer navigational data for the global database in THIS folder.
If you want to replace any of X-Plane's

with newer data, then place them HERE IN THIS FOLDER to avoid conflicts with the X-Plane updater.

Note that this database is also used by X-Plane’s GPS and previously needed files in other subfolders are now ignored.
Also, you can place the FAACIFP18 file here, which you can get from the FAA website: https://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/flight_info/aeronav/digital_products/cifp/
If the file FAACIFP18 is found in this folder, X-Plane will load instrument flight procedures from this file."

I added the FAACIFP file to the folder and did not encounter any problems using X-Plane. My folders are: X-Plane > Custom Data > CIFP_201701 and the files are within that last folder. If you continue to have problems please file a bug with more specific steps. Be sure to include a copy of the log.txt and the file you have problems with, details about where you installed it and where exactly you have the error.

XP 11 do not start with the file added, maybe i should have told ;)

On both W7 and w10.


If I (jus for fun) edit and change the version number inside the file (not recommended) from 1701 to 1611, xp start, but this is not a good way, probably new problems and definitely not correct.
