Regarding the latest update

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I would like to know how to download the latest update for the 777. I have received a notification in PMDG Operation Center to update to the latest. When I install I get a notepad saying that I should download the full installer and that I have to log into the ecommerce website and go to "view previous orders". I am an ecommerce customer. When I click the download URL within "view previous orders" it says link expired. How can I download the latest installer?

 

Current version I have is 6155

 

Regards,

You need to purchase a extended download service. You then log on to support and request it and then..they will send it to you but could take a while

Ha ha , about time, didnt make much sense having a fancy OPs center and then having to go back to the 48hour exteeendeed service.

Current version with FSX/FSXSE compatibility is 1.10.6320.  The OC has a version check to confirm you have the latest.

Downloaded again now I have the correct version 6320. They could have given the update (full) through OC itself. Anyways, it is fine and installed.

I'm a little confused about this update.  Reading this forum, and Randazzo's obit on EDS, I got the impression that we can no longer use the download from PMDG's ecommerce.  We should use the OC.  The OC tells us to use the e commerce.  I downloaded both the T7 LRF and the 300ER.  Are these the current updates, and how can I check before installing?

 

Thanks,

Yes, I'd like instructions please on what to do with this update? Do we uninstall our previous versions first as when they are executed, we are asked if we want to 'repair' or 'uninstall'?

I just finished both downloads and I went with the repair route and it was quick and so I went back to the OC and it upgraded to 6320 I hope this it...I have to play the Sim.

Please advise if this is the correct way for the upgrade.

 

thanks.

do we get an extra activation if the 777 is already activated on our old fsx dvd version?  Or de we need to uninstall the 777 first?

I'm not sure how you came to that conclusion.  Your account history now has active download links for past purchases regardless of date.  In the future, probably many months from now, you will be able to download product via OC.

 

David:  You can have the 777 active on both FSX and FSXSE on the same machine, concurrently. Same license and EULA.

I was actually thinking about installing FSX Steam until someone told me that FSX and FSXSE on the same machine can cause problems.

 

This was confirmed by a Frroogle video as well.

 

You are having no problems with both FSX and FSXSE on the same machine?

I tested PMDG 77X in FSX/FSXSE concurrently and FSX only on same workstation, but separate hard drives although I cannot imagine whey being on same drive would be any different or would be a problem.

The topics before you were talking about liveries... so in that context I'm not sure I understand your question. Guess the question was too short LOL

FSX:SE is the same as FSX. Why bother installing the same thing again and have more frustration and problems to solve? As well as having the additional overhead of running Steam.

 

It seems quite a lot of long time FSX users on AVSIM are moving or thinking of moving to FSX:SE. What is the attraction?

I am hoping on a more stable FSX version (less CTD, freezes, maybe an official DX10, better GPU driver compatibility, Windows 8-10 compatibility, etc)........I know we are not going 64bit).

If that is Dovetales goal as well (besides making money) then I am all in......if not, then I agree and we can all stay on Win7 with FSX as we have it.

 

The idea of installing FSXSE now, would be to slowly transition and get used to the changes, while still being able to fly my fav aircraft over my fav sceneries on FSX pre-Steam.

I just don't wanted to open a new Topic for that. Just a genereal question regarding the Update. Is it enough to use the repair function from the new Installer to install the update oder do i have to uninstall und reinstall?
