    Windows10 Networking???

    Mine is now bizarre... From my main PC (PC1 on network), I cannot 'see' any networked or shared folders from client PC (PC2). Not even the computer itself, or the Public folder. And yet, from the client (PC2), I can 'see' and access PC1 (and wife's Laptop) without issue. Settings in the 'Network and Sharing Centre' are identical on all machines.
  2. Are there yet any flight planning apps that are able to locate airports in both the usual scenery locations AND external XML sceneries? I've been busy putting all my addon sceneries outside the P3D root structure, only to find this causes my flight planners and maps can't find them:-(

    747 Purchase Confusion:-(

    Chris at PMDG support solved the issue in a minute! In case it comes up for others, it was simply a corrupt dll.exe file controlling RAAS in location: C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 Time to fly this baby;-)

    747 Purchase Confusion:-(

    OK I guess I've got something very wrong then. I was sure i'd maybe bought the wrong addon. I'm stumped:-(

    747 Purchase Confusion:-(

    Are these the correct combination of installers? PMDG 747-400 QOTSII Base Package P3D PMDG 747-8 QOTSII Expansion P3D

    747 Purchase Confusion:-(

    Same way I have for years... I uninstalled all four elements from Control Panel. I then removed ALL Lockheed Martin folders from the normal 'Local' and 'Roaming' folders. I also deleted the folders created in the Documents folders. I then downloaded the full install package from LM and installed to its own separate SSD

    747 Purchase Confusion:-(

    No, a completely fresh installation:-) Nothing after that except the 744. I normally use FSUIPC but thought i'd keep it all clean. I only used Acronis to go back to a working P3D after uninstalling the 744 didn't fix it.

    No Dan, no splash screen after installing the 747. P3D stays in the task manager unless I manually 'end task'. I've never seen this happen before.

    No, my default flight is currently just that - default.

    747 Purchase Confusion:-(

    I'm having real problems here... I now have a completely new installation of P3Dv4.3.29.25520 with absolutely NO other addons. I'm still thinking I've got the wrong 747 base package, as after installing it, P3D completely refuses to launch, although Task Manager shows the exe file as running. This is the 'Readme' for my 744 base package: PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II-Base Package for P3D v3.00.9008 P3D RELEASE VERSION P3D 22SEP18 READ THIS END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT 1700Z If I install this, the clean P3D installation refuses to start, even if I then uninstall it again. The only way P3D will launch after that, is by rolling back to hard drive backup with Acronis.

    Windows10 Networking???

    Still trying lol. What MAY not help, is that only one of the PCs acually applied the update. MS had obviously pulled it before the other PC updated. Main FS PC is 1803 while client is 1809. I may try a physical roll back from an old backup....

    P3Dv4.3 Won't Launch Heeeelp;-)

    It doesn't have a cfg file on first startup and doesn't get as far as creating one. Definitely removed ALL trace of previous install. Done it many times.
