PMDG AIRAC Problem

Recommended Posts

Good day,I currently have P3d v3.4 Professional Plus.I installed Pmdg's 747 with no problems but when I load p3d,select the 747 and AIRAC starts to load the sim crashes.The only error I get is "A Fatal Error Occurred".I tried it multiple times with the same results.As soon as AIRAC starts to load it crashes a few seconds later.All other aircraft works fine,only the 747 has a problem.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Thank you

I don't understand this.  There is no AIRAC load event.  Describe what you are seeing on your screen.

Thank you for your reply.Whenever I install a Pmdg product and start it for the first time,a Pmdg window opens that says:Airac Database Loading...(Pleas WAIT...FS will pause untill this process is complete) Reading airports....0.It usually loads just over 24000 airports.And it only loads once for every Pmdg aircraft.Never afterwards.

Interesting. I've never seen this either. Are you absolutely sure it's a PMDG thing and not a conflict with some other addon? 

Can you post a screenshot?

The FsLabs does that, not PMDG. And of course, FSL is not released yet for V4. .

Loading AIRAC data message appeared with the original B744 and not the P3D release.

I got this window with every Pmdg product I have.I also got it when I had Fsx.It loads once then I never see it again.This is the first time I encountered a problem during the loading process.

That's really strange. I also have the new 747, 777, 737 and I have never seen this window?!

My approach would be to update the AIRAC cycle and see if it still fails. And if so I would go to the PMDG support.

Which specific version of the PMDG 747 do you have? The "AIRAC Loading" window appears only in the original FS9/FSX version of the 747. That version is very old, and is not in any way compatible with P3D Version 3, so it's not surprising you are getting a crash. If you are using that version, how did you install it in P3D?

Hey guys I contacted PMDG and are in the process of getting the correct versions/installers for P3d.I also decided to get P3D V4.I don't have an internet connection so I had one of my friends buy any products,download and activate them.Turns out the SOB pockets the money and download "cracked" versions.I am on my way now to confront him.Thank you everyone for your help and support.I really appreciate it.Thank you
