Hi All

Just downloaded C42a to FSX. Everything went ok until I picked the C42 to fly and all I got was the inside! prop and shadow of the plane. No body??? Wonder if any of you brainy people would know something that I dont. Appreciate yr help.

sounds like it didnt install Service pack 2 properly, if you launch fsx and then on the top menu select help and then about it should say what version you are using.
it will look something like the below picture, you can ignore the numbers we are just looking for sp2

if it does say sp2 then try re-installing the c42a again
