Choosing any PMDG plane throws me out FS9

Recommended Posts

Hi,I have just installed SU2 and since then, when I choose any PMDG plane I am sent back to desktop. Any advice?I have a P4 - 3GHz - 512 Mb - Radeon 8400 XL (Radeon Pro driver) - Windows XT home edition.I am becoming a bit desperate after all the "thanks" and "wow"'s I see in this forum.Thanks and RegardsRobert

This is what I try to explain in another posts.Navdata is my problem , if I delete it, everything is OK. If not ,I have to load any default ac, and then ,on the runway, change to PMDG.

Miguel-This *shouldn't* happen, obviously so it is probably something pretty basic..Our installer puts 0312 into the machine for you- and you should not need to load another aircraft first and then load ours...One culprit that has come up a bunch of times is the FS9.cfg files and the save FS9 situation files...Try deleting these and starting again- you might find it was something buried in there causing conflict...

Thanks guys, that's it. If I start with a default Cessna (on any scenery) and afterwards with PMDG it works. What's happening and how can I solve that (keeping navdata)CheersRobert

Sir please sign your name to your posts thank you. Read this thread here and follow the FMC/NAVDATA instructions please, you are not installing the NAVADATA correctly causing this issue. There is a screenshot that shows how it should look. I am assuming you have DOUBLE NAVDATA FOLDERS which it should only have ONE located in the FMCWP folder. http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...id=29465&page=2[h4]Best Wishes,Randy J.

Has anyone at PMDG found a solution to this problem yet? I also did a clean install (on a brand new computer), loaded the NavData exactly as recommended, and it still blows up FS2004 right back to the desktop if you choose any PMDG plane first instead of the default planes. This was not he case with SU1. Thankyou for looking into this. There are not two copies of NavData anywhere on my machine.Bob Kellett

If it's any help at all, before I used the remove tool I copied the navdata (0312) folder. After installing SU2, I simply replaced the new navadata folder with my copy (I looked at fmc_ident.txt first and saw the reference to "old" data). I've had no problems!I only did this because I wasn't sure which cycle the SU2 would come with and didn't want to DL 0312 from Richards site again.Cheers,Paulhttp://www.strontiumdog.plus.com/cin.gifwww.bavirtual.co.uk/cin.htm - please give generously!!Officially licenced by British Airways plc for use of name and logo[p]AMD XP2800+ Barton, Gigabyte GA-7NNXP nForce2, 1Gig Crucial PC3200 DDR 400MHz, Gainward 128 MB GF4-4200, SB Audigy, 3 x WD Caviar SE[/p]

Bob (or Kevin ?! Hey, what's your name - Bob or Kevin ? ;) )Yes, it's true, on some installations you can't select the 737NG as the initial plane.So what ?> Thanks guys, that's it. If I start with a default Cessna > (on any scenery) and afterwards with PMDG it works.Eveb better:> If the default aicraft is e.g. the 172 and you run FS9> - "Create a flight" then choose PMDG and there will be> no more crashes.So start the "game" ;) with the default Cessna standard situation and switch to PMDG, e.g. after the scenery is loaded - just two or three mouse clicks...It's a known FS9 problem, that the default start situation should be done with a MS plane (otherwise some FS9 internal variables may not be initialized).Sorry, but I don't see any *real* problem - you should fly the bird, starting the simulation is not part of the game ;)

Sorry, but it is NOT an FS problem! Never happened before with ANY other plane, so it kind of narrows it down doesn't it! I have been flying FS since FS95 and it has never happened. I don't expect to pay top dollar for a sim add-on to have it crash to the desk top. If PMDG cannot or will not fix the problem, then that is a different story, but don't blame MS and FS2004 for everything that goes wrong just because YOU can't fix it!Kevin Robert (Bob)Kelletthttp://www.opticsmall.com/VirtualAlaska/737700-.jpg

Oh, I was thinking that this issue was only related to FS9 with no english versions (as SU-1, and PMDG was able to deal with it). I see you must have an english installation.PMDG, please look into it, maybe you think that loading a default ac and scenery , and then the 737NG, we don

Same thing here folks.... In FS9, opening screen (Create a Flight), I select any PMDG aircraft, any location (default or otherwise), click on "Fly Now", and next thing you know, I'm back to the desktop and FS9 is gone!!If I create a flight with any other aircraft, any location, and then select the PMDG aircraft once I've started, No Problem!!Very strange...Flightsim Phil

I can't believe that the default situation requires a default MS aircraft. I use the PSS A330/A340 all the time with FS9 and I've never had a problem on start-up. Additionally, until 2 days ago I was using the PMDG 737 version 1.1 with FS9 on start-up without a problem. I'm no programmer, but it seems this is a Version 1.2 issue, not a MS issue.....Flightsim Phil
