Unable to Install 777 P3d4 Liveries

Recommended Posts

Just downloaded all of the new files and reinstalled all of my PMDG aircraft and the latest Ops Center.  I am now unable to install liveries for the 777.  All of the other aircraft are fine but when I try to install a livery for the 777 I get an error message that says: "Livery not found in Aircraft.cfg after it should have been added."  Thoughts?

Had no issues re-installing LIveries after the very latest Update. Just went into Livery Manager, and downloaded from there.

Installed 777-300ER+737-600/700 & -800/900 liveries via OC without any issues.

best bet  is  to uninstall  from control panel   and  than  remove  any left  over  folders  etc  that were  left  behind   than  re  install  again.  Had  this  issue  where  the  oc   couldnt  reinstall  my liveries.  than  you have  to  download  the liveries  again that  you  want  is  the only  issue   you  will  have

Same here. Tried deleting all the left over files after uninstalling from control panel. Still no luck. All 737s are working, 747 is fine too, it's only the 777s which are showing this error message: "Livery not found in aircraft.cfg after it should have been added".

Same here. 737 ngx works. But not with 777 ???

 

Try´d to install a livery manually also not work. The Livery Folder not appears in the PMDG 777 Folder and no entry in the PMDG 777 cfg.

So that´s no Downloader issue.

Also try´d to run as Admin, checked write protection etc.

Nothing helped.

Any of you noticing the issue happen to be using the Estonia Migration Tool?

I'm having the same problem with FSX.  These are liveries that were installed before the latest update.  With the series of recent updates, the Ops Center would offer to correct liveries it detected.  Now it simply offers to delete the folder.  This is only happening with the 777.

No, the EMT was not installed.

No Migration Tool used, only P3d v4 compatible add-ons.

Doesn't need to be used - simply having it installed will screw your registry up.

I've never had any migration tool on my pc. It's a newly built rig and used only p3dv4 updated add-ons, everything was working until I made a clean reinstall of the PMDG products and all the others are working except 77L and 77W.

And you definitely uninstalled expansion, uninstalled base, reinstalled base, reinstalled expansion? You didn't do anything funky like uninstall expansion, install new expansion, uninstall base, install new base or something weird?

I'm also having this problem.

 

I uninstalled the 777 and expansion, then erased all traces of the 777 folders in the FSX directory (Not p3d, don't use p3d on this machine) then reinstalled, but I still get this error.

 

Now I'm unable to have any liveries other than the default PMDG livery.

Was working fine until recently, yesterday or so.

I uninstalled everything at once in Control Panel and then installed everything one by one, starting with the 737-8/900 then expansion 6/700, 747-400, and then 777 base and 777 expansion. The 777s do come up in the aircraft selection but obviously only with PMDG liveries. The other ones are fine. I'm flying the KLM 747 right now. It's just the 777s.

I'm trying to figure out if uninstalling the base before the expansion might be causing this

That is not the cause.

There is clearly some kind of hardcoded folder checking happening in PMDG's ops center and it seems to be a new piece of code.

We need to have the option to guide the Ops center to the correct folder or override its decision that the texture somehow exists even if it doesn't.

To be honest I can't remember in which order I uninstalled it for the first time and that is why I tried it for the second time making sure to uninstall the expansion first and then the base. Still no luck.

Hmmm okay I would've thought a second attempt would have fixed that.
