PMDG MD11 Deletes ENTIRE Texture folder!

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I have had the MD11 installed for a while now, and with the last commercial flight soon, I thought I would take it for a spin. I downloaded and installed the KLM livery off of the PMDG website. Started fsx, only to realize EVERY time I click fly now fsx crashes. I restarted my pc, thinking it was a usual hiccup. Next time I start fsx, I notice a message while loading saying "(Textures) Directory does not exist". Confused, I check my main FSX folder to see if my texture folder was somehow renamed. THEN I REALIZED THERE WAS NO TEXTURES FOLDER. I am extremely furious.  Whatever happened, it is obviously an issue of PMDG.

 

I heard if their software detects a black listed serial they DELETE your texture folder. Isn't that illegal? Modifying or even DESTROYING files that aren't theirs?

PMDG is an exceptional company. BUT THIS IS ABSURD.

 

Sorry for my anger.

Please help me

No doubt, this is going to get fun.  I wonder how many red boxes he has to deal with in his sceneries?

I had a mouth full of coffee almost shoot out my nose when I scrolled down and saw that pic and almost erupted in laughter. I need to save that pic for future uses. Classic!!!

I'm not sure if PMDG's installer actually does this or not, but the license for the software specifically gives the company the right to delete their intellectual property from a computer system if it is found to be stolen, and the end-user has no recourse if said removal happens to cause collateral damage.

 

There is plenty of physical-world precedent this sort of thing. In many states, individuals or companies have broad immunity from prosecution or civil suits for any physical damage they may cause to another person's property in the legitimate recovery of stolen goods - or even simple repossession of collateral.

 

If I read your initial post correctly, you seem to be admitting that you were running the MD-11 with a pirated serial number? Please correct me if I am wrong...

I do believe the other course of action is having the police show up at your house and hauling you away....

If you really pirated the PMDG MD11, let that be a lesson for you about stealing, you really deserved it!
