If you have UAC turned on, run FSX in admin mode.

You can also just change aircraft configuration for a particular livery in the .ini file.

For the future reference:

UAC - User Account Control. Security measure on Windows Vista-onwards.

To change aircraft config go to x:\<install path>\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\Aircraft. There you will find all the .ini's for aircraft configs.

OR you can also change configs from livery folders located in x:\<install path>\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\PMDG 737-800NGX WL*\Texture.xx**

 

* PMDG 737-800NGX, PMDG 737-900NGX, etc.

** IATA airline code for particular livery

Then you better look into the .ini's. Or you did something wrong. Running FSX in admin mode always worked for me.

Hi mate,

On the 800 you can pick Say fuel eg

Change it from kg to lbs

And also the MCP From Honeywell to Collins

You then can go into the fmc menu page the the pmdg Setup

Than u see the load panel state

Once u select the options you want you can hit save panel state, name it then press execute!

U should then be able to exit FSX come back in 7 hours later to the same aircraft and already have the lbs and Collins there!

Hope this helped
