Are you running FSX and the MD-11 while you're trying this? The sim does need to be active and running for it to work...

I find it annoying that every time I load the aircraft I have to pause it immediately and then load fuel via the PMDG options menu. Why couldn't it be set to load with fuel, like the B747-400?

I'm sorry. I updated my previous post. Yes, FSX was running while I tried to move the slider. I think it is the same problem as discussed in the other thread You mentioned above (german FSX version and german Vista32). RegardsTobi >Are you running FSX and the MD-11 while you're trying this? >The sim does need to be active and running for it to work...

We are looking at this issue. We believe it affects only Vista users. Anyone having this problem with Windows XP?

Yep same issue here using (english) Vista 32. Also as a side note when I add fuel via FMC or via the Add-On menu it throws my cg off to (33.1) with fuel and (28) without and I can not configure stab for T/O with fuel. The result is that I fight with the stab trim during takeoff and then later as airspeed exceeds 250 knots it becomes more manageable. Apart from that, this is one of the best add-on I have ever seen... Steps to Reproduce1, Load FSX and select desired aircraft.2, Start Load Manager and verify connection.3, Define desired load configuration.4, load flight plan, weather and start flight.5, once in session verify CG (normally loads at 28 with no fuel.6. Begin fueling process via FMC or Add-on menu.NOTE - when loading fuel via FMC I can sometimes manage the cg and keep it around 27-28 but when using the Add-On it pops to 33.7, Complete checklist normally until you configure aircraft for T/O.8, User is unable to set stab to T/O configurationThank to everyone involved with this release. I test software for a living and know the amount of effort involved. Bobbie Vazquez (SimCOA 4318)

I could set the ZFW (plane config) using "send to fsX" functionality And I load fuel using pmdg menu in fsXNo problem for tutorial but I have to adjust the loads positin in some cases (so cg stay within limits)
