What is the latest version of the 777 for P3Dv4?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I ran the Operations Center, but I'm not sure that my 777 was updated. At least I never received a notification that it was. The version info says version 1.10.8333 is installed. Is this the latest version? I'm wondering, because in the change log it says version 1.10.8333 was released 10JAN17???

Thanks!

Mine says 1.10.8363. It was updated today.

Thanks for the quick response! How did you get the update? Is it just a matter of starting the operations center?

Yes. That's what I did. You'll get a notification of an update. It then downloads around 1 MB or something to that effect, and starts up the actual update... it takes a couple of minutes (at least i my case). 

I launched Operations Center with Administrator Rights - don't know if that does anything...

When I launch the Operations Center, I don't get any message. Regardless of whether I start it as administrator or not.

On my system the update is definitely not working. I rebooted the PC, started the OC as admin. Nothing... Anyone has an idea what to do?

Go into your Program Files (x86)\PMDG Operations Center\ folder and delete everything EXCEPT the Operations Center Updater.exe. Then run the Updater.exe, and then run the OC. That should fix the issue.

Run the updater as an administrator.

Hi Kyle,

I just tried what you suggested. Unfortunately no luck. Still not working. When I fire up the OC (also as admin) then I have no notifications. When I go to the 777 and then Version. It says "Installed version: 1.10.8333   Available version: 1.10.8333  Your product is up to date!"

Hi guys,

I'm seeing the same thing. 1.10.8333 and "product is up to date".

I am in Germany, could it have to do with the same issue that was causing the "failed after 3 attempts" problem the past few days?

Can you access our website? Can you download liveries from the OC?

Yes on both questions

And I'm based in Germany as well.

This is definitely related to the earlier issue of the file error. Amazon's servers over there must be lagging behind slightly. Looks like that one .dat file replicated over in the last 24 hours or so. The version file is probably still not updated over there.

Any one of you have access to a tunnel service? Try tunneling into a different country to see if you get a different result, if you don't mind.

Hello there,

I'm also from germany and had the same issue. By opening the URL that the Operation Center is using for checking for product updates, in Firefox debug mode (F12 Key) and setting the "Cache-Control: no-cache" header manually, seemed to have solved my issue with the download. The next time I loaded up the OP Center the new 777-Update was found. The "Cache-Control: no-cache" HTTP-Header most probably forced the cloudfront server to update its cache.

Just as a matter of interest - I get the V3 and V4 notifications of updates but when I go to download them I immediately get a message "PMDG_Updater_77L_P3D.exe has stopped working  ............."  I've deleted the files as previously recommended and done everything with admin rights and with anti-virus turned off but to no avail.  I've submitted a ticket.  Will await the outcome.

What do you mean by that? How can you 'force' an external Amazon Cloudserver to update it's cache?!
I'm fairly certain, that he no-cache option in the header, related to you own browser and/or computer.

Or am I completely missing something?! :blink:

The cache control header can be used in both directions - request and response, see https://developer.mozilla.org/de/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Cache-Control

Of course the cache server itself can have the ability to just ignore this header, but to my own surprise it did work for me. (Or all of this was a big coincidence) I had been a proxy administator myself for many years in a corporate network and had to do with this stuff on a regular basis. So I thought it was worth a try.

Interesting... Thanks for the explanation. :smile:

If you removed the cache on the Amazon Cloud server - then that would mean, that the issue would be solved for everybody else?

This is - I'm 90% sure - going to end up being interference of some sort. Admin rights is one thing, but it shouldn't cause it to not work. I know you said you turned your AV off, but what AV are you using?

I'm not using AV. So that can't be the root cause.
