    How do I Set Compile Options? (1.65)

    In earlier versions of ADE there were very few options when compiling.  This has changed and now there are a number of different ways that you can customize the compile operation.   These are found in the compile options dialog when you choose Compile

  • Conditional compile is a simple mechanism to allow users to decide whether to compile all the different elements of a project (compile groups) or just some of them.  Of course if all compile groups are unchecked then nothing will get compiled.  So generally you need to compile each group at least once.  To make things easier if you change something in a group (Add, Edit or Delete) then ADE will automatically check the group so that it gets compiled.

    This function requires a ProKey.  If you don't have a ProKey then the options will be greyed out and all groups will always be compiled

    How do I Save my Airport?

    It is important to save your work regularly.  ADE will warn you if you have unsaved work and try to close the program.  Saving your work saves it to an ADE Project File and you should always open your work from the Project File once you create it

    How do I get Help?

    There are several ways to get help for ADE.  These are all accessible from the Help Menu.  In addition to these there is a manual in German and English.  These are not downloaded as part of the installation package but can be downloaded separately.

  • When you compile with ADE you are telling it to create some files and save them in the folder you specify.  If ADE can't save to the specified folder then the compile will fail

  • You have probably reached this article because of the message shown below and Clicked OK.  If you are just browsing the help files then you probably don't need this article which deals with a specific problem that can arise for ADE working with FSX.  It does not apply to FS9 or P3D.

  • Airport background polygons are set flat by default but they can be set to allow each vertex to have its own altitude thus creating a sloped polygon

  • If you have not downloaded the ProKey then you should do so before going any further with registration.  Here is how to download and install the ProKey

    How do I Install the ProKey?

    The ProKey is a small file that allows access to some extra functions of ADE.  You don't need it to run ADE and create or modify airports  but some of the ProKey tools make the job easier.  This article covers how to install the ProKey
