B744F (FSX) Options Menu

Recommended Posts

Got my new 44F for FSX and installed it. Loaded up the aircraft and pressed the ALT key to bring up the menu, then left mouse clicked on ADD-ONS, then PMDG, then OPTIONS. The sim froze up! Had to turn off my computer to reboot. Tried it all again... This time I was able to access the options, but just as soon as I made my selections and exited, the entire screen went black in FSX! If I used the WINDOWS key to return to the desktop, things were fine, but if I returned to FSX, things were still black! HELP!!!I have FSX with all the SPs and SDK SPs installed. OS is XP Media Center Edition, most recent Nvidia 7800GTX drivers, 2GB ram, 3.0 Mhz dual core. Any ideas would be great as I bought this add-on to use with Globe Cargo VA, but now can't!Thanks,Don "VeeMaxx" Van Wormer

Okay... Uninstaled SDK SP2 and FSX SP2. Reinstalled FSX SP1 and SDK SP1A. Don't know how or why, but I was able to get the default PMDG 744F GE to load and was fully able to access the options menu. Go figure!Don Van Wormer

Your not alone, SP2 caused CTD's for me too when loading the Queen.I have been told that, they are looking into it?Logically with 'XP' and no DX10 I am of the opinion that SP2 is worthless.
