My flight simulator disk has a missing/corrupted file and I get an error.

Error message:

Scenery.CFG file error local scenery directory (scendb\westhem\carib\SCENERY) in Scenery Area.022 not found. Click on OK to continue.

Does anyone know how I can get this file?

Thanks

I uninstalled it and did a clean boot, then installed it again. Now I don't get the error when it starts up. Everything seems fine now. Thanks!
