Title says it all, I installed the NGX and panels are black and cant click anything.

 

See file "FSX Edition Steam Users Readme.txt"

It seems to be problem described by you...

(This does not apply to FSX users who are not using the

STEAM EDITION of FSX.)

 

The developer of FSX-SE, Dovetail Games has elected not

to properly install a piece of FSX that is required in

order to maintain compatibility with products developed

using the original, retail version of FSX.

 

This item is called "SimConnect" and it comes in a couple

of different versions.  There are a number of reasons why

you might or might not already have SimConnect installed,

so we ask that you simply keep the following in mind:

 

 

If, when you first run this PMDG product you discover

that the aircraft doesn't appear to run, the cockpit

displays are not present, the buttons and knobs do not

work, the landing gear are retracted, the flight controls

do not work, OR if you know this is the first time you

have run the PMDG software and you have never been

asked to activate your license key, chances are good

that Dovetail has failed to properly install simconnect

with your FSX-SE installation.

 

Correcting this problem is very easy!

 

 

1) Navigate an explorer window to this folder:

 

    <FSX:SE root folder>\SDK\Core Utilities Kit\SimConnect SDK\lib

 

    (By default the <FSX root folder> is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX)

     

2) Run the SimConnect.msi installer file inside the folder by double-clicking.

     

3) Navigate to this folder:

 

    <FSX:SE root folder>\SDK\Core Utilities Kit\SimConnect SDK\LegacyInterfaces

 

4) Inside this folder are three more folders that each contain a SimConnect.msi file - run all three of them.

 

Once you have all four steps completed, you should be all set!

Hi, ACDC1701,

 

In addition to João's advice about installing all simconnect versions, make sure you have the Steam compatible version of the NGX, version 1.10.6461.  Earlier versions are not compatible.

Very well remembered Mike, for FSX Steam, last NGX installer version is indispensable.
