  1. Twenty-one years ago, two Flight Simulator enthusiasts had a common wish, to improve the ATC in FS. A programmer in Atlanta met an Air Traffic controller in Memphis and we created a company called JDTLLC. We began working on Radar Contact which became the best FS ATC program available for many years. In 2001, after 6 years of work, Version 4.3 was released. Seventeen years later, after deep soul searching, we decided to give RC away for free, and step away from the business of supporting it. As of January 1st, 2019, we will shutdown the web site, our email, our storage providers, and our e-commerce partner. What this means to our existing customers, and future owners: 1. Radar Contact 4.3 will be available at no charge, by downloading it from my iCloud Drive. Here is the link. 2. JDTLLC will no longer generate keys. We will give you the same tool we use, the Key Generator. You can download it from here. 3. Radar Contact will be supported here on the AVSIM forum. 4. Refunds have already been issued to the customers who purchased RC in the last 3 months. 5. John and Doug will be available, as needed, at jdradarcontact@iCloud.com. Keep in mind, support will be handled here on the forum. During these 21 years, we have encountered tens of thousands of customers, hundreds of supporters and contributors and dozens of beta testers. We will never be able to adequately express our deepest gratitude and thankfulness to each and every one of you. All we can do is say, "Thank You". John Dekker 📫 JDRadarContact@iCloud.com
  2. i couldn't find your email address in my records, or your name. but i explained that in the email i sent back to you. if you can help me find the info i need, i can send you a key jd
  3. in 10 years, i've never heard or seen that error message. i can only think that something went wrong with the installation. it's also possible, that in each of the voices directory is a picture of a little flag, to go on the buttons of each of the voices. maybe somehow one of those flag pictures has been changed or become corrupted. i suggest re installing. and if you would rather have your 50 dollars back, i'll be happy to do that too. jd
  4. Please help me! I am finding it difficult to register my product

  5. Show Multiline Window should be ON if you want RC's window on the FS screen, OFF if you are using ShowText instead (whether on the same or a WideFS networked PC). This is really the only one related to RC's menus and operates the window which replaces the old defunct AdvDisplay module.Suppress Single line is only related to single line messages, not just from RC, some quite important, and should normally be left enabled. Here you get things like notifications from Active Sky and Project Magenta and other programs saying they are connected, ready, whatever. Programs which use this for trivial things which you'd like suppressed are usually better disabled using their own options.Suppress Multiline FS is normally suppresed for use with RC, but I don't think it affects its displays.I use ShowText on a networked PC and have the INI options set thus:ShowMultilineWindow=NoSuppressSingleline=NoSuppressMultilineFS=Yes
  6. This error message usually means you are missing a particular system file that RC needs to runs. To fix it do the following:The problem is that file system file name is not registered with Windows Open a DOS box (Start|All Programs\Accessories\Command Prompt) (for windows 7 and vista users, click start, type cmd into the search box, and press ctrl-shift-enter, this launches it as admin)for 32 bit users:At the prompt type the following:Cd \windows\system32 (press the enter key)The prompt will change to this:C:\WINDOWS\system32>for 64 bit users:At the prompt type the following:Cd \windows\syswow64 (press the enter key)The prompt will change to this:C:\WINDOWS\syswow64>Type the following:regsvr32 /u msstdfmt.dll (enter missing system file name herethen type the following:regsvr32 msstdfmt.dll (enter missing system file name here Mod edit: There are four files that generally all need this registration process for RCV4 to run in Win 7/8/10: msstdfmt.dll, comdlg32.ocx, mscomct2.ocx, and mscomctl.ocx
  7. yes, you have to open the dos window as admin.that is what happens when you type cmd, and press ctrl-shift-enter. a little trick learned from vista, and carried over to windows 7you can also click start, accessories, right mouse click on the dos prompt icon, then click run as administratoralso, msstdfmt.dll needs to be in the \syswow64 directoryfinally, if all else fails, open dos window as adminnavigate to \syswow64 directorytype regsvr32 msstdfmt.dll /uthen typeregsvr32 msstdfmt.dlljd
  8. in the hopes the next time a person with 64 bit, 713 error, will read thisClick start, type cmd in the search box, then press ctrl-shift-enterAt the prompt type the following:Cd %systemroot%\syswow64 (press the enter key)The prompt will change to this:C:\WINDOWS\syswow64>Type the following:regsvr32 msstdfmt.dll (enter missing system file name here
  9. sorry, i don't have the files to upload anywhere.maybe when the avsim library, nick can upload them again.jd
  10. read them, fly them. you will enjoy rc much more, once you understand some of the beauty under the coversjd
  11. i think this is covered in the tutorials as well. have you flown them?jd
  12. if the co-pilot has the comms, you will always get vectorsalso, if the last checkpoint is not a voralso, if you choose vectors over holding pattern when asked.with the right conditions, you can do either/orjd
  13. PD has nothing to do with this.
  14. have you flown any of the tutorials? read the section on sids and stars?you do what the controller says. not what the fmc or what you want to do.stars end at first contact with approach. if you want to fly the rest of the approach per your star, ask for a IAP approach when you contact approachaltitude restrictions that you were referring to, only apply to departure procedures.for your last question, i'm not sure i understand.read the tutorials, fly them, see if it begins to make sense.jd
