Big Problem, unable to do anything with 777 maybe activation error?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I have a Problem with my favorite add-on for the FSX. I have a new Macbook Pro with quad core i7 2,4 ghz, turboboost up to 3,2 ghz and a Nvidia Geforce GT 705M inside.


I installed Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit via bootcamp, did all the updates and installed FSX with Acceleration pack, thereafter the PMDG 737 NGX and the PMDG 777. As I tried to activate the 777, it won't work and an error occurred because I forgot to deinstall the 777 on my old notebook and my license was in use, eventhough  I was able to load a flight with the 777, but it was completely cold and dark, no PMDG initialization started, the landing gear was retracted, the yoke was tilted to the left and I wasn't able to click any knob. So I deinstalled the 777 on my old computer and activated it on the macbook, but nothing changed. Then I thought it is an installation error and reinstalled it, but nothing changed. The 737 works fine, but the livery manager crashes always if I try to install a livery, maybe you can also help me with that.


I think I need to delete every little part of the 777 installation even the registry entries and then install it again, but where can I find it and do I have to worry about my system if I delete or change these files?


Please help me. 






P.S. Sorry for my english, I'm not a native speaker. ;)

You are not supposed to just uninstall, you are supposed to deactivate (don't even need to uninstall). There is an option in the CDU.


So now,


-install the 777 back onto the old computer

-find the option to release license

-activate on macbook.



(although IIRC the license should work on 2 PCs?)

Either way if it does not help, make a ticket.
