PMDG Repaint Liveries not installing

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,  


I have enjoyed PMDG since the beginning and have never had any issues until now.  I recently did some hardware upgrades and decided to re-install a clean FSX to include PMDG's products.  Only problem is that the livery installer is not installing liveries.  So let me explain in excruciating detail what I am doing so maybe someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong.  This make so little sense to me that it must be a simple mistake.  


1. Download the repaint file and unzip it to a temporary folder, ensuring that it is for the right variant for example: PMDG_737NGX_800WL_AA


2. Run the PMDG Operations Center as an administrator from the windows start menu


3. Select product 737NGX and click on livery manager


4. Select variant - PMDG 737-800 NGX WL


5. Click green + button to add livery


6. Navigate to the location of the PMDG_737NGX_800_AA.ptp file and double click on the file


7. Watch the files load - I can now see the American Airlines with winglets displayed under liveries.


Next, I close the operations center and open FSX.  There is no American Airlines 738W airplane available.  I know that the path to FSX is correct because when I open FSX/SimObjects/Airplanes/PMDG 737-800NGX WL, there is a folder called Texture_AA and the aircraft cfg is edited to show:

So, I am really confused - it's almost like everything is happening the way it's supposed to except that the textures don't show up.  I'm at a complete loss and have no idea of what to do next.   I had no issues loading repaints before I upgraded my computer.


Also, I re-downloaded the 777 and have the same issue - I cannot upload repaints.


The only thing I can think of is that the ops center and my FSX are running of separate SSDs, but I doubt that's the problem. 




Win 7 64

ASUS P8P67 Deluxe, I7 26K Sandy Bridge OC'd to 4.3Mhz

8GB DDR3 1600 memory
