Wilco/Feelthere shut their support forum recently ,thankfully discouraging me from purchasing Wilco airbus version 1 which the developers said was running on their vista machines yet couldn't answer or support customers who posted issues on their forums.I wisely decided to keep my moolah!Their website has no support forums if you look.Can you answer this-what happens to paying customers who have issues when there are no forums?Compare this to leveld's 767 (which I own)-that is the gold standard for addon support!Jay

The 737 forum on the feelthere site is still open and most users tend to post in the unofficial technical forum. Not an ideal situation of course but better than nothing.

jay:>Out of curiosity,are you part of their support team?yes i am part of feelthere. i provide product support as a forum moderator and user of most of the aircraft FT has designed. i am not not a guage programmer nor 3d/2d panel/aircraft designer.>What guarantee is there taht {sic} the support forum will not be closedthe fact that the 737 is a product released late 2005 and isn't new.the product has had multiple free updates (9+). (yes, the VISTA update is payware.)i also remind you, and others, how many FS developers have been around for less time than FT and have closed up shop? MANY. FT will remain in operation. many new products are in development (beta).lastly ... Q&A about ALL FT developed aircraft continues -http://www.iemit.com/forum/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=27i answered Abus and CX questions not 30 hours ago. a few weeks ago i even fielded a CRJ challenge.--edit: html error--

"Every time i install one of my Wilco/Feelthere products to FSX, it corrupts my DLL.XML file, making all future addons non useable!"Yes Phil, my DLL.XML file became corrupted too and I just rebuilt it following the suggestions over at the PMDG forum which discusses this issue. I uninstalled the 737PIC and will try again later with the 2A installer then apply the $10 Vista patch. However I have been having major problems with the 2a version and their DLLXML.exe program (something like that) crashes and closes before completing. Then, when I try to load an 737PIC aircraft, there are no textures and no panel in the VC. I can figure this out though by reading their forum and will get the 737 up and running soon. I was a bit confused (as a couple of others) regarding the upgrade to Vista. I downloaded 2a thinking this was the upgrade and found out much later that I had to purchase it. Looking at the Wilco site, it has a "Prices and Order Page" but I thought, well, I just purchased the XP version of the 737PIC so don't need to go there again and instead logged in and downloaded the 2a version. I think they need to change that button to state "Upgrade Prices and Orders Page". When I had the 737PIC up and running 2 or 3 weeks ago, it performed very well even though I was running it on Vista. I was impressed. I just had a couple of problems with a couple of gauges but I read those were problems caused by Vista and was glad to read they were evidently fixed with the Vista upgrade.

"when I try to load an 737PIC aircraft, there are no textures and no panel in the VC."As a follow-on to the comment I made earlier, I did find the solution on my own and fixed it by turning off DX10 Preview. Everything looks and works great now. In addition, the 2a installer did not corrupt my DLL.XML file this time so it looks like this has been fixed with the upgrade.Best regards,Jim
