Have you looked inside the Reflex\Heli folder?

Or are you using Vista?
Vista does not let programs write to C:\Program Files
It creates a folder in your user area for that

I have the same issue. I looked on Reflex's web site and the folder the instructions are not there in the program. Even if you create them the program does not reconize them.

Search your hard drive for a folder ("century", per example) to locate where the model folders are.

They changed the location (I don't remember it now) and it's not anymore in the "documents and settings\[username]" folder, I guess because of the new security defaults in Windows Vista.

Hope this helps

Is there a life outside the sim?

Under 5.03 it is C:\ReflexXTR\hele\ then the "hele" folder is the folders for your heles. Not sure if that will help you or not.

You will never find it by looking!

The folder is in a hidden file in windows! you will not find it unless you set windows xp to show all folders and files,even the hidden ones.no amount of searching will ever find it unless you do this!there is a setting in the control panel or something that will show these files up like a hidden ghost.I can't remember where it is because it has been a very long time since i had to do this.I eventually moved it back to the place where it used to be on 5.03 nice of reflex to hide it like this,took me 2 days of swearing to find it.

all comments are my opinion only!

Since I work on Computer for a living, I know about the hidden files. I have all my hidden file visible. Here is the installation on a Window XP machine. I see no folders in 5.04 that has the Helis or Airplanes in them.

So how do you add new devices into Reflex version 5.04??

Well I did some digging and found that the model are stored in a different place. In version 5.04.x Reflex has moved the storage folder for the model to another location. Under All Users instead of program files. Look below for the new path.

Look under:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application
Data\REFLEX\Simulator\

Look here under the heli folder and there they are!

they were originally in hidden folders when i first located them.simply doing a search for the folder would not locate it,it could only be found by searching for hidden folders and setting the control panel to show these folders.two of the folders in "all users"are hidden folders,the application data is one of them
