cannot install pmdg 737 ngx

Recommended Posts

hello, I just bought the Boeing 737 pmdg ngx. Once I extract the files and right click on the PMDG 737 8900 NGX and run as an administrator, I get the following message, Unable to locate fsx.exe Unable to install. Could you please help me out, since I have no idea what to do about this?

 

Regards

 

Juan

go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\microsoft games\flight simulator\10.0

 

double click SetupPath

 

place the location of FSX in there, e.g.:

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

 

With Explorer Properties, Security, "Edit" and Add "Write" and "Modify" permissions for the "Users" group on that folder, allow subfolders.

Hi there, sorry to bother you again, I have followed the instruction of the manual and can´t install the liveries at all. In fact on the livery manager I can see installed as an example the scandinavian airline related to the 800NGX model, but once I open FSX, the modelled plane for the scandinavian airline is not there at all. I muest be doing something wrong, since I have no idea what else I can do to get this resolved. Regards

No, I don´t, I only have the cfg files for the default planes, what really strikes me is that of the programme manager I can see one airline that I suppossedly installed (on the installed liveries box)

Going by my post above  have you got  the pmdg  and your liverly showing  and  did you click  the install as well  and  are  you running  as admin   and have uac  turned off

 

 

Your not trying  to install a   600 livery to a  800  are you by any chance

on the livery manager image that you sent me, the select livery to install and the removed selected clickable boxes can be read, on mine is blurred


sorry, I do not understand what you are asking, I run as an admin, do not know what you mean by the uac turned off

Ok   uac  is  (user  account control) this is used manlyl if  you have fsx installed in the (86)  default folder  which  some times  has trouble installing   data etc in short terms. 

 

Other than this  I got no other  solutions  other than you could have  a corrupt livery manager  which be best to submit a support  ticket  in.  sorry I couldn't be  further help for you.

How can I send you a screen shot of my livery?


Yes, I followed those steps, in fact, on the livery manager I can see two airlines on the installed liveries, but the upload is not loading the files
