Error message by extracting the airbus helicopter

  • I want to install the Airbus Helicopter 135. When i want to extract the files to the Community folder i receive som error messages that the path is to long. When i extract it to a Temp folder everything is ok. If I cope the files then to the Community folder it does not work. Who can tell me what I make wrong. ;(

  • This is a well known problem, with Microsoft Windows, which has an absolute path limit of 256 or 260 characters.

    I haven't experienced it (yet) but I understand that you can get around it by using Symbolic Links (…inks-on-windows-or-linux/)

    Probably the easiest and fastest way to avoid this in future would be to use one of the Addon Managers that are available here, namely MSFS Addon Collector or MSFS Addons Linker.

    The first has a pdf user guide in the package, and the other has several tutorial videos on YouTube, if you find them a little duanting initially.

    Good luck, and let us know how you get on.
