PMDG Operation Center no updating my 737NGX

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,
My PMDG Operation Center download the update, seems to update the software but i'm always with the previous version in the FSX simulator.
And when i re open the PMDG Op Center, it tells me one more time that there are updates available for the 737.
Is it possible to re install the update version over the previous one from my PMDG account by downloading the whole zip file of the whole installer instead of updating it from the Operation Center ?
Thanks
Gilles Menghetti

The micro update for the NGX is probably not in the installer that would be downloaded from PMDG.  Help others understand your problem, "seems to update the software... previous version in the FSX simulator."  Based on what? Where are you seeing the previous version information FSX?  What do you mean by "seems to update?"

It is normal for the OC to provide a message that liveries must be repaired after the update. However, if it says there is an update available then perhaps what seemed to be isn't true.  You can help by looking at the updater log for any sign of what might have happened.  It is located here: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\PMDG\PMDG Operations Center\Updater

Thanks #downscc.
Here is the log :
Do you see something wrong ?

"seems to install" ---> because a black windows open very briefly and plenty of lines of text appear and disappear very quickly

When i re open Operation Centre, all 4 avalaible updates ( 1- livery / 2- PMDG 737_8900 / 3- PMDG 737-6700 / 4- PMDG 777

the log of the updater -->

Looking at the updater log in your last post, it appears to be saying that your current version is too old to be updated with the micro updater, so yes, you would need to download the full version from your PMDG account.

First uninstall your current version from the Windows control panel, install the full version from PMDG, and then you will be able to use the micro updater to bring it up to the very latest version.

It might. I think panel states are kept in a different location than the main PMDG folder, but I'm not certain. Using panel states saved in an older version is generally not a good idea when updating to a newer version in any case.

the  panel  states  are  in  the main pmdg  folder,  not  the  simobject  folder  that  you might be  thinking  off.

   just  run  the  oc  first before  you  uninstall  the ngx  than  install   the new  one   than  run  the oc  again  and  it  will  fix  any missing  liveries you had  installed.  As  Jim  pointed  out  you need  to delete  any panel  states  you had  made  since  you most likely  will have  issues  with  the new  version
