  1. Carenado reports they are unable to recreate my reported problem with the APPR button. They will issue me a refund. Jim
  2. I still cant get the APPR to engage on the Carenado Falcon 50. I have had it work a couple of times, but seem unable to repeat it on other flights, most likely because I most likely cant remember the exact setup I used when it worked. I can fly the PMDG 777, the Majestic Q400. and the Carenado Phenom 100, without any problems when doing a ILS approach. In answer to one of the questions, I have had LOC selected, the VOR set to the ILS freq. and I am very close to the airport (5 to 10 miles) This Carenado is the most difficult of all my planes to fly. Perhaps it is buggy. or I continue to make cockpit errors. Thanks, JIm
  3. I am new to the carenado falcon 50. I have been able to program the FMC without any issues. In todays flight I made it all the way to the final airport for landing. I set the NAV radio to the correct freq. for the ILS approach. The signal was received. However when I press the APPR button, it does not turn on (engage). Also was unable to set the CRS, but I assume that is because I can't figure out how to select the APPR function. What might I be missing? Thanks, Jim
  4. Thanks for the information. I will go to a store and take a look. Jim
  5. I am thinking of buying a new PC. It will have a nvidia 2070 super card. I also want to replace my old monitor with a new monitor, about 27 inch. Can someone tell me if going from a flat screen to a curved monitor is a good idea for flight simulator. I have never used a curved screen, so I don't know how this effects the overall flight simulator experience. Thanks, Jim
  6. 😄 I have been fighting a intermittent problem with loss of communications. For example, sometimes ATC calls to give me instructions, but I do not hear the audio. Then the copilot may execute the command. Sometimes I hear the ATC instructions, but the copilot does not respond. I have trouble shot this problme for 3 weeks. Here is some of the stuff I have tried. 1) Reinstalled RC three times- no fix 2) Tried different aircraft - same problem 3) As suggested in this forum I have set the audio, under communications to "Do Nothing" - no help 4) Defrag the hard drive - no help 5) Ran Norton clean disk - no help Finally as a last resort, I had my Windows 7 computer check if there was a new driver available for the RealTek audio (mother board audio). Windows found a updated driver and installed it. PROBLEM FIXED I have posted this information so as to possible help some one else from spending as much time as I did trying to solve this issue. Jim
  7. I created a new path, and now it shows 1809 is loaded. Thanks, Jim Brady
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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!

  13. 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
  14. Is BlueSkyScenery still producing any new scenery? Thanks, Jim
