I am wondering whether any progress has been made since 13 January on strude 11's problem with loading Inverness.
I have a not dissimilar problem.
I bought Inverness and Stornaway from PC Aviator Australia last week. Below is part of the explanation I posted on the PCA Aust Forum last week:
"After I bought this and Stornaway this week, I probably made two mistakes. The first was that I downloaded and installed them without waiting for the back-up disks to arrive and doing it in my usual way. The second was that I forgot to set FTX Central to Europe before installing them.
After I installed them and started FSX, I got a message reading:
"SCENERY.CFG file error
Local scenery directory
(SIM720\Airports\SIM720_KAVX/SCENERY) in scenery area"
I pressed on. Stornaway loaded in the usual manner and worked okay with the Airtrike.
I then tried loading Inverness. The loading stopped for about a minute at 40% (Terrain) and then again at 70% (Auto generated objects), then at 81%, 92%, 94% 96%, 97% and 98% for increasing amounts of time, with the stay at the 98% mark being 5 minutes. The total load time was 18 minutes. When I switched from the Airtrike to the default Cessna, FSX had a fatal error crash.
I then realised about FTX Central, uninstalled Stornaway and Inverness and re-installed them with FTX Central set to Europe.
Similar stalling times were experienced when next loading Inverness, this time the total time being about 15 minutes.
I then realised that the scenery error message contained the Sim720 Catalina initials whereas I has been assuming that it related to Inverness.
I loaded Catalina and found that it was the default airport, rather than the Sim720 one. The Sim720 control panel told me there were various errors with Catalina. My guess is that something to do with Sim720 Inverness wiped out Sim720 Catalina
I uninstalled Catalina and then re-installed it from the back-up disk and it works okay now, as Stornaway continues to do.
This morning Inverness continued to have the stalls and very long loading. When I got it loaded and took off in a QW Avro, I had a couple of seconds of the black and blue ground rectangles (which I understand are memory related). I flew the short distance to Stornaway and when on final approach got an OOM message and FSX closed down.
I later tried loading Inverness after I had loaded another airport. This time there were no stalls in loading but merely a very long loading time, probably about ten minutes."
It is strange that I have not experienced similar problems with my other four Sim720 airports or with any of my other airport/scenery products. That is what makes me suspect that the problem may be the product.
Happily, unlike strude 11, my load times for other add-ons do not appear to have been affected. Therefore, the only current inconvenience to me is not using Inverness.
