You can also paste these 3 lines inside of Notepad and save as fg-root.reg file to desktop, then double click the file and add the entry to registry
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 
"fg-root"="C:\\Program Files\\FlightGear 2016.1.1\\data"
Open up regedit and add fg-root key.

Terrasync - Known Issues

Failed to remove file

.terrasync_cache files can not be deleted. You will see errors in console. There is not much to do other then delete the .terrasync_cache files manually and then run FlightGear again to let it recreate the up-to-date .terrasync_cache files.

insert powershell script here to help with this for those that want to try.
