I'm just wondering why it makes the files in the Windows directory?This is deliberately or inadvertently made ​​there?

Hikmet- Thank you for the report. Alex is looking into why this might happen.

Hikmet, This is a rare occurrence that may happen if you create a flight with the NGX and set it as your default FSX flight. We corrected this but unfortunately we cannot issue a hot fix for this right now, because we have some work underway on some of the aircraft systems. The temporary workaround will be to set up a default FSX flight with some other aircraft.

I have today uninstalled, new PMDG737NG aircraft download, installed again.I have all failure OFF, as far as I know. I see the data in:F:\FSX\PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\Aircraft The AAL repaint N807NN.ini file Note: all ini files in this folder have the run timer data...

This is a rare occurrence that may happen if you create a flight with the NGX and set it as your default FSX flight.
I have 30 or 40 of these files in my Windows directory and I've never created a default flight of any kind in FSX.

Hotfix3 is still doing this (see below). The contents of these files looks like the output of some embedded debug code. PMDG, shouldn't your "reach" be limited to the FSX installation folder? Might be a cause of some instabilities.

I have no such files in my Windows root. I have 737-800NGX WL as my default aircraft. I'm running x64 and my fsx directory is on a seperate partition from my Windows partition.

I have those files too and I don't have the NGX as default flight. My default flight is C172 at Dinslaken Schwarze Heide (EDLD). When I open some of these files, all those which don't have those names like BB1 C505 1FDC 6598 CAD3 1CA6 E6A4 E22C 5615 D01E 4751 C51E 6987 E170 217A 0D46 AF6C have the path to the previous flight panel state in them. Also I can see something with "AnalogStandby=". So maybe those files are created while using the analog standby instruments when saving a flight?

Same setup here, but I do have these files in the Windows directory. Trike over Friday Harbor is my default flight.

Same with me. No 737NGX in my default flight, but a number of PMDG files in my windows root directory.For ex. a file called "Pitch target" : [D:\flight simulation\fsx\PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\PanelState\Previous Flight.FLT.sav]Although it seems a panel state save, why in the windows root directory? Looks a bit messy, no? Jos Denis

I only have the CDU.0 and CDU.1 files, W7 Home x64, FSX on own drive.
It starts like that .. then, for me, more will add with each PMDG FMC usage / flight setup.

I have had 10 files with "normal" names like described above at least since Mendoza made his original post, but never any with "strange" names. Always had the Trike in my default FSX flight, never the NGX. Pretty poor form to drop files in the Windows directory, if you ask me - although they don't seem to do any harm Loser.gif

It's always a little alarming when an application starts writting its files, at random, to the windows directory.(or any other unexpected directory) Hopefully, when the issue is corrected, PMDG will give a list of the filenames that could have got written there by PMDG, so those who want to, can remove them from cluttering up their windows diretory, WITHOUT the risk of deleting IMPORTANT, non PMDG files.
