  1. I don't know if anything has changed....but all I had to do was ensure that the one axis controls throttle 1 and throttle 2, and then set a keystroke or joystick button to LUAToggle.... and it worked. No fumbling with 'tricking' multiple axes or reloading keys or editing the ini beyond the first entry.
  2. Please don't be so sensitive - I am not assigning blame, and neither should you. I am commenting on my point of view and providing my experience in hopes that somebody with more knowledge can add to it or whatnot. I don't understand networking, which is why I am here - for you to enlighten me instead of criticizing my words. So if you could do anything on the internet just fine, except download the latest update to your favorite program......what would you do? How would you feel? And who would you ask?
  3. But certainly, something to do with a server setting that doesn't like my network. Liveries and OC updates worked fine. When downloading the full installer, it hangs until it cancels, then I can continue - and it does this until eventually the whole file is done. But I have 0 issues from any other source of download which is odd. The WiFi network is not my own (rental unit in a house), so not much I can do about it. And it's very high speed.
  4. In my case, it's actually some sort of network issue I can't resolve that has to do with PMDG (I'm using a house's WiFi network). No other downloads or streams have issue in my home except for PMDG. I can't download the installer (it hangs) and thus can't download updates either from the CC. I actually have to get the PMDG files downloaded onto my cellphone from my LTE network then manually transfer them to my PC.
  5. It must be my landlord router, which I can't do much about. Tried downloading on my phone via the same WiFi and the problem persists. I was only able to download to my phone via the LTE cell network. Download to my phone, then hook it up to my computer and transfer via USB. What a pain! Sacha
  6. Nothing beyond what comes with Win10
  7. Ok, I'll take a closer look. I'm using Chrome, and I haven't had any issues with other downloads that I have had recently outside of PMDG. Perhaps I'll try Edge. Edit: Edge gave me the same problem. No issues streaming movies, downloading from other sites (recently got another aircraft for XP11), nor other download programs. And that is despite being on a house WiFi in the basement.
  8. Has anyone been experiencing difficulty downloading PMDG files off PMDG's servers? Each time I try to get an update, the download slows to nothing before getting a download failed - network error message. Then I have to resume download and do this several times over before I actually have the complete file. It's quite irritating!
  9. Just realized - you mentioned you downloaded it from Aerosoft.....they may take longer to update their database with new versions as compared to downloading from PMDG directly.
  10. When you downloaded the installer, did you choose to overwrite your old one? If you did, I made the same mistake. Delete the old one completely, THEN download the new one (or place in a new directory).
  11. Problem solved....Even though I thought I overrode my old 777 install zip, I in fact did not. Their zips don't indicate what version I'm putting in, so I was trying to install an older version. I downloaded and put the file elsewhere and it worked fine. Thanks for the responses. It's all the stupid silly stuff that holds us back.
  12. Confirmed - no need for migration tool, as the 777 is updated to v4 compatibility. Custom folder like yours, yes (not the default program files one). C:/Flight Sim/Prepar3d (on my SSD) and the 777 being installed from another drive.
  13. Brand new purchase and fresh install of P3Dv4, as well as a re-download of the 777-200LR/F package (had trouble getting it off the server). My P3D is installed in a custom folder, and the error message I get when I try to install the 777 is this: "Installation cannot continue. Your registry does not show a valid Preapar3D(tm) installation location." Any ideas on this? Sacha Djordjevic
  14. Unnoticeably few, and not common. PMDG has what, one? The one I don't even have for FSX.
  15. So, with the upcoming release of X-Plane 11 and Dovetail's offering following 'Flight School', not to mention the anticipated possibilities with P3D v4+, it has me and many other people excited for the future of flight simulation. Finally, a future we can dream of: 64-bit support, improved graphics card usage, CPU optimizations, etc... The question really stands now, which publishers will take the industry by storm and produce the finest add-ons for the finest sims? Right now, P3D is (unofficially, thanks to license) the finest we can get our hands on. But with the promise of X-Plane 11 being released very soon, it is currently the only sim I could take seriously as being a serious contender against P3D. And what it seems to have is the best of both worlds: A perfect blend of FSX and XP features that might make it the current time's perfect sim. I know that anybody in their right mind would wait a bit to see what comes of it, but I truly hope that PMDG would seriously consider producing their products for the new platforms beyond P3D, with special attention to XP11 (FSX is dead I say!). If PMDG and A2A or Carenado were to announce projects for XP11 - I would jump on board WITHOUT hesitation! I vote one up for B737XP!!!
