Hi,

You will have to more specific there.
Which video are you referring to?

What exactly doesn't work?

I cannot also figure out what are the aircrafts you are talking about with the Dlink?

Sorry must be me, but I still don't understand what "aircrafts" has to do with the Dlink.
I don't see any list of aircraft, nor any highlighted aircraft.

For starters, it's a PMDG rule of theirs, that you have to include your full name in the signature, or for your own sakes. your post could get deleted by them. Romain has not mentioned this out of courtesy to you.

Yes as per forum rules. You can set a signature block to avoid typing it everytime.

You go to route page1, enter origin and destination airports and Flight number (callsign one with 3 letter ICAO code), then go to the Datalink page, enter the ETD, airline ID (2 letters) and ETA.

Now what is your issue?

What doesn't work?

ok thanks think i have added the signature hopefully working 

i believe i have  found the issue i   saw a video where they was saying you dont need to add a rte via a simbrief as it sets it up for you which is wrong you still need to run a rte and place into the 747 folder 

so theres a misleading video out there not this one but another one found on youtube 

thanks 

case closed

Hi Martin

Romain has fully answered your problem because I too fly the PMDG 747-400 and the 747-8i, and for the DLink to work, what Romain has written, is spot-on. Should in theory work time after time.

What I do is generate the flight plan via PFPX, then set the export folders up, and when I have got the bing-bong back form ACARS, then go ahead with the Route Request, and if all is well, should be in the 747 LSK. Rest should then proceed smoothly.

Hope this helps further.
