Feature Request: Manage licensing in PMDG Ops Center

Recommended Posts

I've got a new video card coming tomorrow, so from searching the forums, I gather that I should deactivate my licenses for PMDG stuff before I install the new card and then reactivate. If that's incorrect, please let me know. Given how switching from one PMDG aircraft to another in the same sim session goes, this could take a while for every PMDG product I have installed (NGX, QOTS, 777, DC6). I'm sure PMDG aren't keen on giving out a roadmap, but can you please consider adding license management to the Ops Center so that it's decoupled from the simulator environment?

Yes a very good idea. I can't see it happening in the current ops centre as I think I remember Robert talking about a v2 in the works with more functionality so maybe it will come.

Yeah, honestly I don't care when it happens. I just want the feature to hit their backlog for development. But so far I'm 15 minutes into this with one plane left to go. The license dialog forces the sim to close after each deactivation. Even on SSD, P3D takes a couple of minutes to get fired up in the plane. And lord help you if you have the default config for an aircraft set to cold and dark. :)

You can probably speed up things for deactivating by turing down all P3D settings. As I suppose you're about to remove P3D for your system.

I can reactivate P3D easily. No sense reformatting my entire machine for a video card. PMDG is about the only company I have addons from that require this amount of work to prevent issues. A little under 30 minutes later, I'm done with them all.

Press and hold the MENU button. It's a shortcut to power the CDU on at any time for various reasons - this one included.

That's good to know, thanks.
