Hi,

 

Have you added AIRAC cycles 1404 in your folder "PMDG" (737NGX/777) ?

Double click the file .EXE. Then install for FSX and the files are automatically installed in the folder "PMDG"...

1) Open the folder containing the update wish (open the PMDG folder).

 

2) Run the file located. Exe.

 

3) Check the Backup installed cycle box and the box of FSX, FS9 or P3D depending on your simulation software then press Next.

 

4) Enter the path to FSX default to touch anything and then click Next.

 

5) Add Full install (all boxes checked) and click Next

 

6) Click Install and wait

 

7) Click Finish

Check the correct dated files are written to these two folders:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\PMDG\NAVDATA

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\PMDG\SIDSTARS

They are text files can be checked with Notepad.

Monst3ro contacted a personal message and I suggested checking the simulator system date, which I think has been done.

Check the date in the simulator to ensure that it's the current date and not the date of the previous cycle. If the simulator thinks it is now this past March instead of April, or even this upcoming May, you could have a potential issue.

Guys thank you so much for help , the problem was simple but i lost allot of time to figure out that silly prob. The fix was in windows date "Like you said" . You have to set date to US or UK , after that you have to change short day to (MM/dd/yyyy) and long day to (dd,MMMM,dd,yy) and last you have to go to (Location tab ) in (Region and Language ) option in Control panel . Then install Navigraph FMS Data manager again and update your Add one . That's worked for me

Good news. I was not aware the installer was UK/US formats only, but it seemed the most likely problem.

I also had a similar problem with Navigraph and the 777 . I just had installed the new data in the PMDG/NAVDATA folder, but when I started my sim the FMC still showed the AIRAC cycle that came with the plane. Looking into it, it seemed that Navigraph made a new subfolder within the NAVDATA folder called 777, and inside this were two folders with the new data, titled Navdata and Sidstars respectively. The old data was still in the basic NAVDATA folder. I deleted these, but the FMC then said that i had no nav data available. I then cut and pasted the new data and put it in the basic folder where the old data originally was and it finally worked. 

 

Any reason why the installation made these new subfolders even when I told the Navigraph manager just to put them in the PMDG/NAVDATA folder? Why cant the FMC recognize the new data in these subfolders? I thought this was all automatic but apparently one has to do some cutting and pasting to make it work, all the while manually deleting the old data. Is this a pretty standard procedure? Im new to updating the navigation database so I had no idea what to expect.

The PMDG FMC requires a strict set of folders containing the AIRAC NavData set. If the AIRAC for some reason does not get installed to the proper folders, then the supplier of the navdata should be notified.

Just noticed you said you installed to PMDG/NAVDATA. The install directory is the root PMDG folder and the Navigraph installer will find NAVDATA and SIDSTARS from there.
