FSX Plugin works fine on P3Dv2 (v2.1 as well). I didn't do anything specific to make it worked. 
(This post is also working for FSX users)
I just launch the AirnavBridgeFSX-Installer.exe and set the destination folder to my P3D directory.

Consider the following:

1. Please, check if you have a "AirnavBridgeFSX.dll" file in the \AirnvBridgeFSX directory within your P3Dv2 directory structure.

2. I can't remember if the installer succeed in modifying the DLL.XML (located in c:\Users\<Your Name>\Appdata\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\). Anyway, edit the DLL.XML to check if this section actually exists :

<Name>Air Nav Bridge FSX</Name>

if not, obviously correct/edit DLL.XML to reflect.
There might also be a simple mistake such as an error in a line of the DLL file. Example: Instead of having "Air Nav", you read "Air Mav".

Still having issues:
If you notice a mistake in the file name given on the FSX error message, for example reading "AirmavBridgeFSX...", with an "m" instead of an "n", you should try doing the following:

Rename ALL the files related to the FSX Air Nav Pro plugin with the same mistake (put an "m" and remove the "n").
For example: if you have AirnavBridgeFSX.dll, rename the file to AirmavBridgeFSX.dll
