Yes, it was the Operations Center itself that was updated, not the 747.

Hi,

Yesterday I had a problem with OC update. Norton Antivirus detects a Trojan and deletes OC and the updater as well. I had to restore them from a backup and set an exception in Norton Antivirus to perform the update without issue.

 

Skip.

I'm usually pretty cautious when it comes to expressing my opinions of other developers' software, but I will state this plainly and openly: aftermarket antivirus programs of any time after about 2000 are awful. Remove them, save your money, and spare yourself the frustration. Combined with simply being careful while browsing, there's no reason the built-in Windows Defender would come up short for 99% of home users. Enterprise businesses? Different story, but at home, you're better off without them.

Hey Kyle,

I tried to install ORBX Global scenery recently and now my PMDG Operations Center and the RAAS system has vanished. The OP Update remains, but no Center. I have downloaded the FS2 PMDG 777 RAAS from their site, but even though it runs, I stall don't get it installed in the aircraft.

Any thoughts?

Willing to bet this is coincidental, particularly if you're using aftermarket antivirus programs.

Run the updater. It'll re-download all the stuff you need.

Great!

You are the man. Got the Ops Center. I have followed your advice and uninstalled Norton and enabled Windows Defender.

 

Thanks!!

As a long time computer user (my first PC was a Commodore 64 in 1983, also have a B.S. in CS), I have to say that ironically, the virus Detection Software that exists today actually exhibits many traits of the very software they try to eliminate - they are free until they detect a virus and then usually demand you pay money to buy the full version to extract the virus, they slow down your system by getting in front of every operation that occurs between the software you use and your disk drive, and also your software you use and the Internet, and are generally whiney pieces of software that always demand attention, money, and, just like a real virus, usually prevent you from running the perfectly valid software on your system.

In the long term we need to hold Microsoft accountable for putting together a robust operating system that doesn't need 3rd party software on day one to keep it safe from infection.  To expect to have to do this it plain ridiculous.

I agree with Kyle, but it depends - a family computer used by people with not much knowledge who click on fake download buttons on "a free video site", well, they may need antivirus a bit stronger than Windows Defender. But combined with safe and careful browsing habits and common sense; you should be fine. We use ESET NOD32 Endpoint Antivirus at work, but I run my own home machine just with Windows Defender.

Kyle,

Back again - the Operations Center works fine, but I still can't get the PMDG777 RAAS system to work. I have downloaded and run the MakeRunways program several times, downloaded and run the FS2Crew_RAAS_PMDG_777_Update program immediately after, and still no RAAS. It says it installed (blink of an eye install), but it never asks for permission to Run when the 777 loads. I have pointed it to my Steam directory and it acknowledges that it will install there, but no joy.

Puzzling?

Thanks for any help!

You've listed a bunch of things that your tried but they're all related to different issues. What is the actual symptom you're seeing? Improper call outs? Not working at all?

It might be disabled for some reason in your dll.xml file.

I'm sorry if I didn't make it clear. When I installed the ORBX scenery several items that had worked stopped/vanished. RAAS for the PMDG777  is one of them. When I run the "C:\Users\Joe\Downloads\FS2Crew_RAAS_PMDG_777_Update\FS2Crew RAAS PMDG 777.exe" program it claims to have successfully installed, but it is NOT in the aircraft. I have tried both of the FSX installer variations (FSX & FSX-SE, side-by-side) and neither accomplishes the task. I'm lost.
