FSX Steam Edition, Aerosoft F-16 missing liveries

I am having only 3 liveries after re-installing Aerosoft F-16, I checked the "best answer" on Aerosoft forum and it looks to me to be incorrect or though it will appear to work it will give an incorrect configuration.

The problem is that a lot of the F-16 liveries reference the "Aerosoft F-16A 9\Panel" folder and if you look in that folder, there is no panel.cfg, but there are Panel.cfg.SP2 and Panel.cfg.Xpack. So I would conclude an installation step is missing when Aerosoft installer does not recognise Steam Edition and so does not rename one of those files. I simply make a copy of the Panel.cfg.Xpack file and rename it to Panel.cfg. As the other liveries reference this panel, suddenly they are all available to FSX once more. If you edit that file you will see it is not exactly the same as the one in "Aerosoft F-16AM Display\Panel", there are also other files in this folder, so the correct solution is to just copy/rename the single file.

The F-16 Fighting Falcon can be downloaded from FlightSim Store here:
