Missing Option In 747-400 Load Manager

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how to resolve the missing option in the 747-400 load manager. I use to have the option of sending my weights and fuel directly to fsx while the program was running. This option does not appear in the load manger anymore, even with fsx running. I only have the option to save to file. Do I need to uninstall pmdg and reinstall it?

When you say "program", do you mean FSX or do you mean the PMDG 747? The option appears only when the PMDG 747 is running.

But you have to have the aircraft itself running, too. Running the load manager doesn't load the aircraft.

I had this problem when I first installed the 747 in FSX-SE. The air file name needs to be all uppercase: 747-400.AIR and 747-400F.AIR. In my install the files were named 747-400.air and 747-400F.air. If the file extension is lower case like mine was, right click on it and rename the file. Renaming the file won't affect how it runs in FSX, but the load manager code seems to be case sensitive.

So, this is a problem only with FSX-SE? I have FSX and all my .air file extensions are lower case and I don't have this problem.

Kevin you were spot on. I changed the .air files to upper case and it worked. And to answer someone else's question about is this an issue for only FSX-SE. It appears so. I didn't have this problem until I switched to SE. Thanks again Kevin for the solution.
