First Time Use of Liveries - Help Needed

Recommended Posts

Ok so I downloaded from the PMDG website several of the liveries available for the 737 series and the 747. and then I followed the install-shield prompts to install them all in sequence, with no error messages resulting from that step. Next I started up FS9 and clicked on the PMDG options menu, where I expected to see a new option for the lveries I had just added. There was no obvious option to access and use those new liveries, so I assumed the system needed to be re-started in order for the new liveries to show up. After the re-start I still found no trace of the livery downloads, even when I checked several of the other menu options besides the PMDG one. My question here may seem stupid to those who have used PMDG liveries all along, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get those livery options applied to any of my PMDG aircraft, and I would be grateful for any advice that will help clear the fog here.

Did you go the aircraft menu and look under Boeing - PMDG?The installed liveries should be there.

Hmm, I did check tha "Aircraft" menu, but that only presented me with the standard FS9 screen for selecting aircraft type, but with no visible option available to alter the aircraft paint scheme. I just noticed another post today by someone experiencing the same problem of missing installed liveries, but with the PMDG MD11, rather than the other 737s and 747, as in my case.I know the answer is probably staring me in the face, so someone please help me spot my oversight here. Thanks
