New P3D v4 install and PMDG AIRAC update issue

Recommended Posts

I purchased a 1TB M.2 drive to add to my computer.  I uninstalled P3D v4, the PMDG aircraft, the scenery files, etc.

I next did a full install of P3D v4 on my "new" drive (drive D) and kept the OS on drive C.  I installed the PMDG NGX and 777 to P3D and see it on the new D drive, but I also see the PMDG file on my C drive under Prepar3D and PMDG is the only entry under that folder.

I also have the same folder on the new D drive in P3D.

I tried to update the nav data using Navigraph FMS Data manager, but the aircraft is still stuck on the 2011 AIRAC.

Do I delete the PMDG entry on the C drive or is that where I point Navigraph?

Thanks

The Navigraph data should be on the D drive. You may need to point Navigraph there if it's not already doing so.

Thanks, Kevin.  I did set the path to there in Navigraph FMS manager.  Crossing my fingers to see if that fixes it.

One recommendation is that after you uninstall everything go into your c drive and manually delete the remaining folders. This is necessary sometimes.

Fixed it.  I had to go to the settings menu in Navigraph and change the folder from C:  Prepar3D to D: Prepar3D.

I have just P3Dv4.3 (no other sim) in E drive and Navigraph in C drive (as default installation).

Previously I had both FSX & P3Dv4.3 + Navigraph in E drive and there was a Navdata folder which doesn't exist anymore. Should it exist?

Undefault installation would create a Navdata folder?

You may have the Navigraph FMS Data Manager installed on C in the programs folder, but the navdata files used by PMDG must be in the <sim>\PMDG\Navdata and <sim>\PMDG\SIDSTARS folders.

I have a P3Dv4/PMDG/NavData & SIDSTARS folders:

inside NavData there are these files: airports.dat + Airports + ARPT_RWY.dat + cycle_info + fmc_ident + wpNavAID + wpNavAPT + wpNavFIX + wpNavRTE. Is it the correct config?

and Tks

Hi Eduardo,

That is what I have too. Seems fine. If you read cycle_info, what is the date range it indicates?

Valid (from/to): 06/DEC/2018 - 02/JAN/2019

This is the latest one I downloaded today.
