Why not just look at the waypoints in the RTE file and enter them manually?The whole point of AoA's videos (I think) is to get you to be able to fly them above and beyond what a normal simmer could do. Along those lines, you've been met with a contingency. Handle it with your knowledge of the aircraft. The route will probably be the same, so enter it by hand and you'll be right on your way.Over-reliance on automation will eventually put you into the ground.

I don't know. Having to learn how to edit the RTE files seems overly much. I'm surprised they did not provide an installer for their route. Anyway, are you sure you cannot build the plan yourself?

Not edit. Just read. Open it in notepad and look at the fixes and you'll know what to enter by hand on the flight deck.

Have you looked in the manual that came with the product? 12-22 FMC Users Manual (pp346) 'Building a Flightplan'
