Missing Import FPL and Checklist button in GTN 750

Recommended Posts

Not sure if its the recent upgrade to 2.5.25 but I am unable to import any flight plans into the GTN. I have read the manual, a couple of times and the paths suggested are there both with and without the shortcut.

When I access the flight plan section Menu /catalog there is no import button as shown on page 9 of the manual.

I have placed the checklist file in the aircraft file but it isnt much use without a checklist button in the utilities sections which is also missing

I have tried in both the RW Design Twin Otter and the Caranado Cheyenne both the same

Any assistance would be appreciated.

First, your GTN is not entirely up to date. One of the component has not been updated to the latest version. You might want to manually delete C:\ProgramData\Reality XP\rxpGtnSim64.dll and reinstall the RXP GTN. Then the next time you fly, cross check the log files whether they display the same version number.

This is the parent folder where you must create the FPLN folder (or the shortcut)

HI

i have uninstalled RealityXP from my drives both FSX and XPlane and completely deleted any associated files including registry listings for FSX and reinstalled the GTN for XPlane - after running the F1 gauntlet. The program is now working as before in both the RW Design Twin Otter and the Caranado Cheyenne IIIT.

I now have a flight plan import menu and am able to import plans ok. 👍

However

1 ) There is no sign of a checklist Button and menu within the utilities menu as shown on page 8 of the users manual.

2 ) despite having reinstalled and run the update I note that the rxpGTN.xpl.log file is still showing an earlier version as before

rxpGTN.xpl.log

20/05/31 03:47:42.068 07856 -    ] # win.xpl version 2.5.23.0

20/05/31 03:47:56.111 07856 INFO ] GTN 750.1 - TRAINER 6623

Any thoughts ??

Cheers Pete

Just tried the Airfoil Labs King Air 350 and this has the Checklist button - so looks like it is something Aircraft specific ??

You don't have to uninstall everything. Just manually delete the rxpGTN plugin folder, then reinstall the software using the extracted RXP installer.

Please note: the RXP software installer is saved by default to C:\RealityXP when you use the "REINSTALL" option in the e-commerce installer. You can cross check you are running the latest installer in selecting the 'check update' option during installation. You can also cross check it is the latest in right-clicking the intsaller .exe then Properties > Details > File Version

As for the checklist file, it might be a problem with the checklist file itself (either corrupted or wrong content, or, wrong file name). You might want to try out copying the checklist file from the KA350 aircraft folder into the other aircraft folder and see whether it is picking it up?

Do you mean you've manually copied the file checklist.gtn

from the AirfoilLabs KA350 aircraft folder

into the RW Design Twin Otter folder?

In order to test the file which is working in one is working or not in another aircraft?

Thats correct copied into both aircraft folders - no checklist button. Tried both formats .gtn and .ace files

At this stage there are only 3 possibilities I can see:

1) The checklist.gtn file is corrupted. This shouldn't be because 1 aircraft can load it ok.

2) The checklist.gtn file in the RW Design Twin Otter aircraft folder can't be read. This can be a Windows user access right configuration preventing the open/read operation, or, another program taking a lock on the file before the GTN can read it (unlikely but you never know).

3) The RW Design Twin Otter aircraft folder is restricting read operation on all the files in the folder (unlikely otherwise XPlane wouldn't load the aircraft but you never know)

What is the full path to the checklist.gtn file in the RW Design Twin Otter aircraft folder, including the starting drive letter?

I have checked all the folder permissions, having regard to your comments above and they are all read/write. The full path to the checklist is "D:/XPlane 11/Aircraft/DHC-300 Twin Otter V2"

Without being on your computer it will be hard at this stage for me to further find a possible cause because for now I believe we've exhausted all known possibilities.

Please note: file access rights is not just about read or write, it is also and more importantly in this case about the user account credentials under which X-Plane is running and the user account credentials of the folder. These can be complex sometimes (preventing listing the content of a folder but permitting direct access to a file by full path name is one such complexity).

Hi Jean - mate thanks for your help to date, the checklist is a minor issue as Im thinking about pulling the trigger on a AivlaSoft EFB so I'm happy to call it quits. The important one for me was the import of flight plans which I now have with your much appreciated assistance. Cheers Pete
