  1. Have you ever tried the native HotKeySelect views?
  2. Dan was absolutely correct. It was a damaged dll.xml file. I found in the P3D Tips and Tricks section of these forums Elaine Dixon's steps for a repair of a P3D installation. I followed them to the letter and it completely cleaned up my installation to a proper state. Now the NGX launches properly. I am posting this here in case it might help someone else searching for these answers. I did run the PMDG installation repair as well before loading the 737.
  3. I suspect you are correct. It may well be a corrupt dll.xml file. I see from reading Elaine Dixon's advice on P3D V4 to maybe delete certain folders in P3D V4 to rebuild them properly. I may try that. The PMDG operations center works fine, so I don't think it is a virus. I have AVG configured to ignore the P3D installation. The dll.xml file in Program Data has the following lines for PMDG <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AceXML" version="3,0" id="dll"> <Descr>AceXML Document</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Launch.Addon> <Name>XMLTools64</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>XMLTools64.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>PMDG_HUD_interface</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>PMDG\DLLs\PMDG_HUD_interface.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>RAASPRO</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>.\RAASPRO\RAASPRO.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document>
  4. I just did a fresh install of the latest version of P3D V4 and all is running great. I installed the 737-800 base package and it installs just fine. I made sure simconnect is active and I installed everything as administrator. P3D V4 is running fine and planes are launching just fine. The aircraft preview section shows the PMDG 737 base models are there, but when I select one of them to load, P3D V4 shuts down to the desk top. What's wrong? Can anyone suggest to me a way to repair this? Is there a missing file somewhere? I am totally baffled. I've never encountered this before. Any help will be very much appreciated.
  5. Thanks for the heads up Jim, I had missed that bit of info.
  6. Anyone else experiencing crashes when opening the map with Shift 2? The Windows error message reads Symmap.dll is the cause of crash.
  7. As long as an AI model is FSX compatible it will be okay in V4. It's FS9 models that don't work any more.
  8. I use adapted WOAI and current AIG flight plans and have slowly substituted the aircraft with the best looking AI models I can find. The best so far are the newer FSX FAIB models and the current FSPainter models. It's worth it. The older models are just not quite as good as the newer upgraded models both in looks and how they fly in P3D and FSX. Try the A380 and see how it goes.
  9. They are quite good and look good. They are actually optimized better than older AI models. The downloads are large because they come with several different models and a few paints already.
  10. How are these sceneries in V4? Aside from aggravating Couatl stuff, like pauses on approach, do the aircraft wheels still sink into the tarmac?
  11. The new Doug Dawson sound dll file goes in the panel folder of the aircraft. Be sure to rename it as per instructions in the readme and rename or remove the old one.
  12. Do the new V4 installers still use Couatl?
  13. Not having speed trees on has not caused me to lose any sleep.
  14. Just P3D speed trees, that's it. They move in the wind, a little bit.
  15. I meant dynamic trees or vegetation, that makes the ORBX trees look too green.
