P3D v4 Installation Fails

Recommended Posts

Perhaps jumping the gun a little here but following a wipe of P3D v3.4 and an install of v4, the QOTS2 package fails at initial installation with "Installation cannot continue.  Your registry does not show a valid Prepar3d(tm) v3.x installation location".

 

Admitedlly my installer is a little old (release date of QOTS2).. Is ther an updated version available?

They don't support V4 just yet I guess.

Maybe it will be supported very soon.

I don't think PMDG has released yet the new installer of the B747-400 QOTS for P3Dv4. The installer you're using is for P3Dv3.4 and will not work with the new v4.

Cheers, Ed

As we've been saying for about a week now: you'll need a new installer, and we'll let you know when it's ready.

The information about availability even has two forum posts dedicated to it. Here's the latest:

I checked in the new updated PMDG Operations center.... And they listed the QOS v2 V4 version....

Essentially said to install it just As if it where V3 version...

Not quite clear..... as PMDG said the 747 would be available for V4 the day after P3D V4 Release...

It also lists the 747-8. Is that available? No. Our store site also lists the DC-6, and the 748. Are those available? No.

Preparations != availability.

It isn't? I think it really is. I'm curious to see where we ever said it would be available the day after the P3Dv4 release. Would you mind backing your claim up, please?

"The PMDG Douglas DC6 is already flying in P3Dv4, and we hope to have the 64-bit version fully ready for you on release day!"

 

Chill Kyle :D We just love the PMDG products ^^ Take it as a compliment.. The preparations are really a little confusing. I fell on its line too ^^

  1. DC-6, not 744; and
  2. In the context of the DC-6, which release date might we be speaking to: P3Dv4, or the DC-6?

Apologies, but it's frustrating to have released at least a couple of rather clear updates about our estimated timeline, only to have to go back and clarify what's already been put out there.

I appreciate the enthusiasm, but I'm baffled by how people are getting the impressions they're getting. It's awesome that people are excited and clearly want the plane in v4, but I think people are letting their wants cloud their judgment of the statements.

When things are ready, and/or released, we make clear statements to that effect, usually specifically with a thread with "Released" in the title.

haha - that's fair.

I was cleaning the house up last night and noticed that I have no fewer than 5 books with bookmarks in them scattered about my room, all started within the last month of so. Looks like I need to work on my own attention span in my own way...:laugh:

It's interesting how smartphones have altered our attention spans. Then again, 3 days and 25 hours in plane without an autopilot will do that to you, as well...

Kyle is Scandinavian, and we have a straight forward communication other cultures might be taking as offending, but we did not mean any offense. If someone would ask a similar question like that on a forum in Nordic countries, response would not have been so restrained and kind.

Sigh... I just want something to fly in P3Dv4... I actually just flew from the default NZMF to default NZQN in the DEFAULT King Air. With DEFAULT scenery. 

If anything, it really has made me so much more appreciative of PMDG, ORBX, REX, HIFI, and all the other devs who make our sim what it should be..

haha - glad someone understands. RSR always has to remind me that, for people who know me, it's easy to understand my meanings because they can 'hear' me say it - in type, though, it usually comes across as pretty terse. It's something I've been working on for years...some habits don't go easily, though.

The plane needed to get out to CCR to get swapped for another one that someone else was dragging back across the country. As for the reason for TDW, specifically, it was mostly timing. Tried to keep the legs under about 4 hours for sanity's sake, and Amarillo was a good spot to stop into. Reliever airports, and other non-Class B/C airports tend to be cheaper for a quick stop, too, so TDW was perfect.

Thanks... I'll make just one more deviation and go further off topic, but 17/35 and the taxiways are in increasingly poor shape at TDW. Like many of the roads around here, these surfaces are just not swept often (at all).

So if I just bought the PMDG 747-400 for P3d, without having p3d v3 (But I have v4)  Will I still be able to get it for P3D V4 when it is available for that platform?

I know exactly what you mean. I am extremely straight forward and open in my communication, even for being Scandinavian. It is a hard work to adjust to other cultures.

Yes, the QOTSII product is for both v3 and v4, but you will have to wait for the update to the product that provides for an installer that is v3 and v4 aware.  I recommend that since you cannot install yet, you wait for the update to be announced and then go to your PMDG account order history and download the latest from there.

Thx for your help, I will be on the look out for the 744and 772.

Yeah they are. I used them to get back to the south ramp and was none too pleased. Much better than some of the airports I've flown into, though, where I'm carefully angling the plane around to deal with divots/pits/cracks that might drop the nose and catch the prop.

Hi guys,

I was waiting, patiently :) but will admit to possibly jumping the gun. I noticed that ...or it looked like the 747 was ready for P3D v4 from the product page at PMDG...it now says v4 so I bought a licence for P3D and cannot install it.This was yesterday btw. 

I get an error message...something like "windows cannot install..." and then the .exe (install file) disappears from the unzipped folder... weird!  

I have never experienced anything quite like it.

any insight is much appreciated but I have a feeling I just need to wait for an update. 

Thank you,
too excited :) lol
