Two Problems loading 737 NGX...all okay until yesterday

Recommended Posts

I totally reinstalled everything (including OS) a few montha ago and went with FSX Steam exclusively.

Very few problems and NONE with PMDG Basic or Expansion before.

As of yesterday: When I load any version (700, 800, 900} there is a popup requiring me to enter my key. I do that and it validates it. Sometimes after that, everything works normally but usually the following:

no buttons, switches work, or CDU goes black when I opt for any panel state. Worst case though is FSX just closes instantly and I am back to the desktop.

Anyone know what is causing this?  Absolutely no changes or software added in a week or more.

Thanks for any help

Install the SimConnects as directed by the readme that came with the product. It could also be that something has disabled the FlexNET service on your computer for some reason (it'll be listed in your Windows Services).

I had the identical problem.  The only thing I can think of that could have caused it (the only thing I changed) was an update to the FTX Library.  Anyway, I checked and FlexNet had been disabled in Services.  I reset it to Automatic and everything is working again.  I hope this will be the answer for others.

Sorry for my delay in replying  It WAS the FlexNet that had been disabled. Set it to automatic and problem went away.

Thanks to you both very much
