    PMDG 777 not being updated by Naivigraph

    I created a new path, and now it shows 1809 is loaded. Thanks, Jim Brady
  2. I just upgrated to Navigraph cycle 1809. It just came out today. My current Navigraph database is 1802. The Naivgraph auto install shows a path of {FSX}\. The auto install runs to completion with no errors. When I start FSX and select the PMDG 777, the FMC shows cycle 1802 (my original). What could I be doing wrong? When I use the file manager (windows 7) and look at C:\fsx|pmdg\navdata I find this file: cycle_info.txt It shows AIRCYCLE as 1802 (not updated) Thanks, Jim Brady
  3. Problem solved. The control panel information list me as the Administrator: So when I ran the install.exe program I just executed it. Always failed to auto install the various subset files. Today, I tried something different. I right clicked the install program, and selected "run as Administrator" and it WORKED. I don't understand why if I am listed a the administrator, why I then had to right click the install program and select Run as Administrator??? Windows 7, 64 bit computer. Hope this information might help some one else who might have this issue. Jim
  4. I have a problem installing MegaSceneryEarth states. The new MegaSceneryEarth installer is suppose to only once ask for your email and license information. Then it is suppose to auto install all the remaining downloaded file sets. This does not happen for me. I have to input my email and license information for each file set as their being installed. I have asked MegaScenery for help and they have asked me to check three items or setting on my Windows7, 64 bit computer. All 3 items check out to be set correctly. So I wonder if any Avsim users can suggest something for me to check out. Stopping at each file set results in a long install time! Thanks, Jim
  5. Problem fixed. I had assumed that when I downloaded the Phenom 100, I received all the required software. However, my problem went away when I re-downloaded the Carenado Navigraph extension pack. This was always a second download purchase from Carenado. I was wrong in thinking that by downloading the Phenom 100 I had everything I needed. So even though I reloaded Navigraph latest update I did not see a fix until I re-loaded the carenado extension pack!

  7. Every time I select the Phenom 100, FSX crashes with a fatal error. I have uninstalled the aircraft using windows 7 uninstall program, then downloaded and reinstalled the aircraft. NO fix. I have tried starting FSX with a different FSX default aircraft, the when I switch to the Phenom 100 FSX crashes. Any ideas? Thanks, JIm

    BlueSkyScenery

    Is BlueSkyScenery still producing any new scenery? Thanks, Jim
  9. I did a Windows update, and now ActiveSky is working correctly. Thanks for the input. Jim
  10. I have a windows 7, 64 bit PC. I use FSX. Whenever I attempt to open a flight plan, I receive a message saying " active sky 16 has stopped working. Windows will look for a solution". Now, I have created flight plans using PFPX, the built in flight planner in FSX, and even created a flight plan using the Active Sky planner. All three flail to work, the program always crashes with the same error message. Now what is a bit strange is that if I continue to use FSX, I find Active Sky 16 has loaded weather into the simulator. However, a message does come from active sky saying I should load a flight plan for better results. Any ideas how to fix this issue/ Thanks, Jim

    1 FPS unusable

    OK, I now have turn off threaded optimization. It seem to have no difference for me, still the 1 FPS unusable flight sim. So then I went into settings and reduced just about everything I could turn down. Well the FPS did increase, but the visual quality was very very bad. I could not even read the text located below the knobs on the panel. So this tells me it is most likely my old GTX460 card. As I said, I have very good FPS running FSX, with most settings set high. But not with this sim product. Most likely I will look into buying a new system sometime this year. One question I do have, when in setting there was a setting for FPS. It had on the low end of the scale "0" and on the high end it showed a "10". Is this what it look like on your system? Is the SIM estimating I cant get better than 10 FPS? Thanks for all the inputs. Jim

    1 FPS unusable

    I agree about possible conflict. However not so sure I agree about my older GTX460 card. This card works very good with FSX, most of my setting are set high, and it runs very well delivering 30 FPS or more. I was told FSX uses the intel processor (my I 7) to do a lot of the video processing (because FSX was designed before the video cards became so powerful). Now perhaps x-plane depends on the video card, more than the I 7 processor? This might be the answer. I am not sure.
  13. I just downloaded the beta, for x-plane 11. The performance is so bad that I can not use it. I guess it is 1 FPS slide show. I run FSX with high settings and get at least 30 FPS even with PMDG 737 and all other aircraft add--ons. My CPU is intel I7, 940. My video is GTX 460 card. How is it possible that I only get 1 FPS slide show with their demo? Thanks, JIm

    Ultimate VFR

    Any one try the version 2 scenery yet from ultimate vfr? If so, how does it look?
  15. Very disappointed to hear the same problems are seen in the newer 300 model. This would be a great plane if the autopilot functions worked as I think they should.
