    Windows cannot find Path


    Hi i have had windows 8.1 for a while now and i have come over an error. It says 'windows cannot find C:/Users/Alex/AppData/Local/vPilot/vPilot.exe', make sure you've typed the name correctly and try again. I have looked in the file and the .exe is there. CAN ANYONE HELP?

    Your Path statement should use the backslash \, not the forward slash /. That's been a naming convention for many years. The forward slash / is used on Internet URLs/Addresses. It could also be the file is corrupted needs reinstalling, maybe even the flight simulator.

    Does the shortcut's properties actually point to the right Start In directory? And the main path in the top line?
