unable to install PMDG 737NGX

Recommended Posts

i HAVE FSX DELUXE WITHOUT SP 1/2 ETC. when I run the PMDG.exe,"your registry does not show a valid fsx installation location" prompt shows up during the installation and installation stops. Tried the registry repair tool but to no avail(I direct it to my fsx.exe and it shows registry created). It would be great if someone could show me a way out. Thankyoucool.png. Iam not even sure if my FSX is installed or not, I just have a an FSX.EXE file in FSX folder on my primary drive that I have to run to open FSX. It does not show up in the add remove program in the control panel either.Well I tried looking up the add remove program but cant find a trace of fsx there. I dont remember exactly but I think I might have installed the fsx in the fsx folder in my C drive instead of the regular "Program files" folder used for istallations. i.e. C:\Microsoft Flight Simulator X1. Probably thats why all this is happening....all I need to do now is to run FSX.EXE in the microsoft flight simulator folder to run fsx. also, I have absolutely no problem adding sceneries and aircraft to it either. Since Ive not used fsx for a long time am not sure of the installations etc. It'd be great if someone can tell what I myt be looking at.

It shouldn't make any difference where you installed FSX.  What does make a difference is that the registry, the system, and the NGX, have no idea that FSX is installed. You need to do a re-install of FSX and you will need to install SP1 and SP2 as well. It is just possible that the correction utility from Flight 1 can fix your registry problem, but you will still need the service packs.

This is an install issue.

 

This is one of the rare cases where I'll tell someone to uninstall and reinstall. Manually delete all FSX-related folders you can find. Then, properly install the program via the disks.

Quite likely because the scenery or aircraft you install are not looking to the registry for a specific entry that belongs there.  The missing entry in the control panel list of programs is a registry problem.  Did you take the recommendation that Kyle offered?

Have you done the things that Kyle and I suggested?  If not, I guarantee that your problem with the NGX will continue.

I own PMDG 737-8900 NGX and 747 (Queen of the Skies).

I am unable to reinstall the 747.

Bizarrely, I managed to install the 737, but it asks for the serial number, which I entered originally. There is no way to enter it, so I tried to reinstall.

This didn't work.

So I cannot fly it. If PMDG is so paranoid about its products being copied, I will not buy anything more from them.

I have tried numerous times to reinstall these products, and looked at about 10 forums. So I've given up and use CLS 747 and the excellent 737 freeware.
