Please sign your name to posts in this forum.The information that goes into the wpNavAPT.txt file needs to line up in proper columns. You can't use TAB, you must use spaces (spacebar).If you have either 737 or 747, try first with those instead of MD-11. The MD-11 does not have error messages like the two Boeings, it will just say NONE for SID/STARs when in fact they exist but there is an error. The Boeings will give you an error message to help isolate the problem.

Hi There,I think your problem could be a similar one that I had. Now if you have access to navdata . One delete your FMCWP folder in flight Sim,Next delete your Sids and Star File inside the PMDG folder then run your navdata. This will reinstall. Them or if you dont have access to navdataYou will have to unistall the MD-11 and install it again. This will fix your problem. I started to check through my wpNavAPT.txt file and found missing runways at several airports. And Some Sids and Stars would not work even though they were there. But after reinstalling them allworked well but you must delete your FMCWP folder and your Sids and Star file first. I hope this helps you. Cheers Greg Bisset YSSY

How in the world did you open the airports.dat file? I can't get that thing to open at all. :(

You may not have an association between .dat and an application; no matter, use any text editor. It is only text.

So what was the fix for this post ? I have the same problem, no stars for VHHX.

I have a little file I've downloaded that automatically inserts the SID/Stars for VHHX. PM me with your email address and I'll send it on. Anyone else, same thing. Got a Level-D one as well, if anyone's interested. Cheers, Chris D
