What is the name of the zip file that you are trying to extract.

Also does orbiter work with out that addon

That is does the default scenarios work?

Ok I am guessing that this ShuttleFleet. What version is it, Have you followed the install instructions in the PDF.

When you extract the files to Orbiter, do you have the "Use folder names" and "Overwrite existing files" options checked? If you don't, check them, and then try extracting the files again.

As for the files, Kaito is looking for this:

Shuttle Crawler Rollout ver9

Ultimate Space Shuttle Experience

ESA Nerva Shuttle Project Freedom Part2


The Nerva ones are from an outdated version of Orbiter, which is probably why they don't work (also, you only posted part 2, did you install part 1?).

The same way you unzipped the main orbiter installation.

Posting in bold and underlined doesn't make your problem seem any more urgent.

Sounds like he may have installed the whole package into the scenarios folder

This is what I do. Hopefully it'll help.

Make a special folder in your "My Documents" folder and label something like "Incoming Downloads" and perhaps change its icon to something very identifiable like the big green arrow windows provides.

From now on after you have downloaded the addon, right click and extract the zipped file to your new "Incoming Downloads" folder. This way you know right off the bat where everything is and you can now go there and see the actual folders within the addon. This will help you also to get a better understanding of how Orbiter's files are structured.

From here, just highlight everything and select the "move to" option and send everything to your orbiter install. For example this is where my Orbiter install is CrogramFiles/Orbiter. The addon should already be in the correct file structure so all you must do to install an addon is to do as mentioned above and move all of the addon files to your Orbiter root directory. Don't place them any further than(using my Orbiter install as an example) CrogramFiles/Orbiter The addon files will automatically end up in the right place.

If the addon readme is not readily visible after you have unzipped it, it should be in a folder called either "Doc" or "add-on docs". In there you should find the addon's details and installation instructions. (Some addons have extra installation steps to be fully functional for example scenery addons)

Please ignore the stupid smily faces. I'm trying to help you but the text and symbols I tried to type happen to be shortcuts for imbedding smileys. Sorry about that I don't know how to change it. I hope you get the idea.

Which addon is it felipebatista that you are trying to install into your Orbiter? Please provide a link to it so that we can read the readme as there maybe some instruction in there that you are missing.

I'd rather not do the email as this is the better way and place right now to get assistance like garyw said.

First, make sure that any add-on you install is for the current version of orbiter. Add-ons, especially bases and solar systems, from previous versions will NOT work in the current version without extensive modification.

Second, make sure you install any dependancies first. Check the manual or Readme for the add-on for any special installation requirements. Many add-ons require that other add-ons be installed first.

Third, extract the add-on to the proper directory. Nearly all add-ons are designed to be installed to the Orbiter ROOT directory. That is the folder where the Orbiter executable is. Not the scenario folder, or the modules folder, or whatever. Make sure that your unzip utility will use the directory structure the add-on is packed with. On WinZip, that means have the "use folder names" option checked. In 7-zip, its "Current Pathnames". In other utilities I've seen it called "keep directory structure intact" or "use relative paths". If you do this, 99% of add-ons will automatically put all files in the exact sub-folder they belong in.
