make a clean install of all.Maybe that works.Because most people how use a new product or a new update have some trobbles the first time. Install it and then re-install it.I do that mostly and it works.Hope it works,Ramon.

Thanks for your answer. Unfortunatley this cannot be the problem. I just removed PMDG (with the latest PMDG-Remove-Tool) and re-installed it. Same problem again.Can anybody else confirm that my SID is of the right syntax and should work?Thx,Art

No problem - the version of the manual i have is dated 12 dec 2003 and it definitely says NOT BEFORE with a space - maybe you have an older version? I know some of the syntax for SID's has changed with the release of SU2. Maybe this is one of them.Anyway, I'm still learning a lot about writing SID's - I'm in the middle of rewriting all the ones for EIDW as like many people I found that they didn't work quite how they should ;-)Does anyone know if there's somewhere on PMDG's website where we can post these or should we just put them up here is AVSIM?Cheers,Shane
