Engravity CDU drivers

Recommended Posts

Hi all, the wait is over, the drivers for the Engravity CDU have arrived. I just purchased and installed these drivers (I immediately received the key by e-mail....excellent). I copied the license key to the FS 2004/PMDG folder as instructed. When I want to connect to the CDU by means of the PMDG menu in FS 2004 I get the error: Unlicensed serial number of CDU. When I open the key with notepad, I see that the key is licensed to 0090, the serial number of my CDU is indeed 00090. What am I doing wrong? Oh, and I have the 1.03 firmware installed.regards,Arjen Nederstigt

Dear Arjen-please email me at lkalamaras (at) precisionmanuals.com so I can assist you. In the meantime, make doubly sure that the .key file is INSIDE the PMDG folder and named appropriately.Best,

Hi, I'd love to get one of these, any chance you can show off some pics once you're up and running. I've seen the ones on their site, but I'm left wanting more :-)

Thanks Lefteris for your quick reply. However the solution you e-mailed me didn't cure the situation. I emailed you back, but maybe we can put the discussion on this forum, so other users who are experiencing the same problem can benefit from it?To Alaister: as soon as I get it up and running I'll post some pictures of it.Regards,Arjen Nederstigt

Arjen-as I emailed you back, this situation isn't common- it stems from a glitch in the serial number engraving in the firmware of your hardware CDU. Engravity will have to take care of it...Best,

Edited for clarity-(Arjen- there's nothing insulting or inappropriate in your post, but I wanted to clear up the situation a bit on behalf of Engravity, who don't have a login here)In Arjen's case, there was a situation where the serial number on the sticker issued by Engravity didn't agree with the one embedded in the firmware. This was a glitch caused in the Engravity CDU firmware update process and one that can certainly be fixed by Engravity personnel.We ask our customers to make sure their decal in the back of the CDU has the same serial number as the one showing in their S+EXEC setup screen, and that their firmware has been updated to 1.03.Thanks all- LefterisRegards,Arjen Nederstigt

To close this topic I would like to say that thanks to the great support of Lefteris and Engravity (thanks Stef and Robert) my CDU is running like a dream now. It's great to toy with, and programming the FMC with real buttons is SO much better as mouseclicks.Best regards,Arjen Nederstigt

Hello Arjen, Just wondering if my eyes are seeing the price of he CDU correctly. I believe the price was $1250 bucks. Is this true?Gideon

Gideon-the CDU *hardware* is $1250 (shipping included). The PMDG CDU interface is only $99 (lol).Keep in mind - we don't ship to EU countries, due to complications with EU VAT/taxes etc.Best regards,

I think Engravity will ship to EU countries seeing as Engravity is based in the Netherlands.I hope so.

Would that then mean that PMDG isn't shipping the interface driver to EU countries ? Doubtfully since it's most likely just a small download.Tero
