Are you looking at the right scenery.cfg file?

IIRC the scenery.cfg file may now be with the FS.cfg file in each users
settings folder rather than in the FSX folder. Again I may be wrong here.

Very odd.
I tried adding Canaries, via the Addon Scenery. The new scenery was to
be seen from th airport but wasn't listed in Scenery.cfg.
Next I moved the Canaries folder to a different drive and edited the
Library path. In its ne location it still worked but still no sign in
Scenery.cfg
