I downloaded this route (Twice) followed all the instructions to the letter. Did it several times. Each time the route will not load in MSTS. Looking at the route folder there is no "Activities" folder or "Services" folder. Made the folders. Went to the Activity editor, made an activity and path. Editor pops a box states "unable to create service."

I am able to create activities on other routes. The path I made is present. No activity is present in the route folder and the route will not load in MSTS.

I have read the posts for this route.

You probably have to create the Activity, PATH and Services folders before you can make an activity. The folders must exist. I beleive this was an error in compiling the route for distribution and there may be a patch here somewhere that just copies empty folder to the install with 1 path in the path folder to make it visible.

Check and see if all the folders are in the route's folder. You can look at another route's folder structure to make them the same.

Thanks Bob,

Actually I had created those folders in the route. The read me states that the route comes with a couple of activities so the folders should be there already but are not. It does install with the "PATH" folder and several paths are present.

I was having trouble creating an activity using the AE. Decided to download an act from NERR and that installed correctly after I created the missing folders and the route does now run okay.

I will go to the AE later and see if the problem is still there.
