HOW TO ADD SCENERY TO THE FSX LIBRARY
There is a bit of a glitch to adding scenery to the FSX library when running Windows Vista, 7 or 8. When you add scenery to the scenery library screen in the FSX settings the OK button may not work. If this happens click on any of the white space in the opened folder box after clicking OK and this should add the scenery. More information can be found at this post: http://www.fstipsandaddons.com/how-to-install-addon-scenery-in-fsx/
