Gauge problem Windows XP

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,I have (another) problem with my pmdg ngx. I had to install Windows XP in place of 7 because of issues, but now whenever I load the plane, everything works, including the gauges, but the text on the gauges is missing. Eg no speed numbers, no 'ATT' when irs isn't aligned, and no heading numbers or any kind of text on the ND. The same for all the other gauges... I think it might be a font problem/missing.Any suggestions?

Yes im on SP3, and there ARE 7 font files in the FS font folder. Is anyone else running the NGX under XP that can confirm it even works? (in XP)

Okay. With all the NGX/PMDG related fonts in the font folder, right click and select install. Then reboot your computer and see if that fixes it

You have all the fonts. There are only 7. When you first installed the NGX and ran FSX, did you allow all the modules to run?

Okay. Try backing up your FSX.cfg, deleting then letting FSX rebuild it

That doesn't solve the problem either..
Send a ticket to PMDG support and ask them what are the fonts you need to add in your windows version then download them ;)

Nope that doesnt do the trick... do you have any other suggestions?
Yes! A support ticket at http://support.preci...n/Default.aspx. They have a very helpful support portal just for us customers. I had support contact me 3 times since your first post in here. You probably could have had the issue solved by now.

And indeed I did! ;) PMDG reccomended I installed Windows 7... So I thought 'oh well' since FSX is the only reason i had Windows on my Mac. I installed Windows 7 and ALL MY PROBLEMS WERE GONE!! :D Thanks PMDG, although for some people a complete OS reinstall might be a little drastic...

Anyone else have any suggestions? I'm unable to upgrade to 7 - Currently running XP 32-Bit. I too, have tried all above recommendations with no-joy. Thanks! PANDA

Actually, found a fix if any of you are still running into this problem: Download and install Windows XP SP3! Fly fun! PANDA
