Please verify that your SDK has been installed correctly.

The structure of the tools folder has changed in the last SDK

verify that:

[YOURSDKFOLDER]\Tools\3dsMax\FlightSimPackage\scripts

contains something like this

In case you have something different ...reinstall the SDK

If that is ok, double-check that the following script

C:\MSFS SDK\Tools\3dsMax\FlightSimPackage\startup\FlightSim_SDK_Startup.ms

has been copied here

 C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2018\scripts\Startup 

If that is the case, verify that the FlightSim_SDK_Startup.ms is not somewhere else on your PC, especially in this folder:

 %localappdata%\Autodesk\3dsMax\2018 - 64bit\ENU\scripts\startup

If still doesn't work, please tell me the exact version of Max 2018 you are using
