    Just start her up a go fly....

    Yes, you can just start a flight with the engines running, set a few items, and takeoff for a quick manual flight. Do not modify anything in the FMS/CDU, set flaps 5, FD's on, MCP HDG/Alt, spool up, TO/GA and you are off. Then normal stuff follow FD , gear up, flaps on your schedule if you want A/P say after 1000 feet ok ...go follow a few VOR's. Actually I mentioned doing this during in a recent forum post of mine on T7 freezing problem. I use FSUIPC and Saitec Throttles and they do not have the throttle problem you mentioned. And, there are optional items in the PMDG config you may have already set up? Edit: later on normal fully setup flights you have the option to fail many T7 systems including the FMS(L/R) so a little flying without is good.

    Long pauses/freezes T7

    Chris ... sorry I was looking at Olympic as support and not your signature block. Previous post Edit: Why would my personal information be missing from the ticket system? Do users get notified when a ticket is closed? I had originally thought I had two tickets. Actually it was one ticket with the same dll error on two PMDG products (737/777).

    Chris, All I knew was the problem (ticket) was being looked into so I assumed it would still be an open ticket item. I was never informed it had been closed. One advantage to posting in the AVSIM/PMDG forums is the posts remain for searches and comment. Edit: Why would my personal information be missing from the ticket system?

    Some additional follow up information I just looked up in e-mail from PMDG Ticket Support from a year ago and also yesterdays event viewer error from my T7 test. PMDG Technical Support Desk <supportdesk@precisionmanuals.com> 10/28/2017 8:46 AM Chris Makris Technical Support PMDG Simulations, LLC After my PMDG 777 test I exited P3Dv3 and got the same error I had when I submitted the ticket to PMDG 737 (FSX) a year ago using FSX .

    Long pauses/freezes T7

    The ticket info I mentioned to Dan was just to confirm I was familiar with the PMDG ticket system. Anyway, I initially looked back at my e-mail from PMDG to see about any previous tickets. I had noticed 2 e-mail entries from PMDG so I assumed two tickets But, both were referring to one ticket. This is the ticket information that I found: [20B-21863168-0410] DLL error

    Long pauses/freezes T7

    Hi Dan : thanks for the follow up. I am ok with using the PMDG Support Ticket system. I have submitted PMDG Support Tickets in the past. In fact, I still have two unresolved tickets from Oct 2017. Anyway, I did another test yesterday. P3Dv3.4, PMDG777, departed KJFK, manual flying, no CDU entries, no Active Sky, headed west. At 10000 feet I decided to do a CDU Route Request using a previously saved PFPX route KJFKKDFW01. The route UpLinked / loaded ok. There were no freezes/pauses. As I previously mentioned my current problem (777 freezing) is exactly the same as this post and replies from Sept 2013 : https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/419895-777-freezing/ So, I am planning to do a few more local tests and internet searches later today.

    Long pauses/freezes T7

    Dan, thanks for the follow up. I did a couple test to see if I could create a situation that caused display freezing with long pauses then recovering. All test begin the same: Reboot PC Start P3Dv4.3 Selected PMDG 777 (AAL repaint in my case) at any departure airport (CYVR and KDTW for my tests). PMDG777 loaded / default PMDG777 config / engines running. Set flaps 5, no CDU entries, set MCP, takeoff and manually fly around tracking VOR radials. ******** Results: Tests without Active Sky and no FMC/CDU setup all ok no freezes. Tests with Active Sky (no flight plan loaded) and no FMC/CDU setup all ok. Last test with Active Sky with flight plan loaded. I forget which one e.g., KDTW - KCLE or KDTW - KJFK. All ok until I decided to try loading a PMDG rte via CDU. Then I got the freezes with long pauses and then recovery from the freeze. Got a couple screenshots of the freezing event and recovery. Edit: You mentioned " You are at the point where I think you should post a trouble ticket with PMDG Product Support. " I normally wait a little while to see if other pilots report their findings here. And sometimes PMDG Support offers additional information here in the forum topics. Also: my first post mentioned ActiveSky16 (P3D) . It should have been ActiveSky (P3Dv4) My Active Sky versions are ASP3Dv4 v 6773 and AS16 P3Dv3 6452

    i7 6700 and all 8 cores working ... ok on all other aircraft in FSX Accel., P3Dv4.3 and all previous versions of P3D and Xplane 10 and 11. This (cores, infinity mask, overclocking , etc) is not an area I mess with. " I've seen posts by one of the LM guys that HT is not optimum for P3D. " Not optimum? I did not see that. What does PMDG recommend for the T7?

    Long pauses/freezes T7

    Hi Dan: You mentioned Vancouver to Seattle.... pretty short 777 hop but that should be a problem. Did you mean should not be a problem? I read the tutorials to learn the T7 systems / procedures. I fly short flights while learning. Of the aircraft I fly PMDG777 / P3Dv4.3 is the only one freezing / locking and recovering after some period of time. As I mentioned the same short flight T7 P3Dv3.4 was all ok. I did another search and this topic mirrors my current problem. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/419895-777-freezing/

    Long pauses/freezes T7

    Long pauses/freezes/P3D not responding then flight resumes. Happens during all phases of flight sever times per flight. Test flight CYVR-KSEA PMDG777 v 1.10.8886 P3Dv4.3.25520 ActiveSky16 (P3D) Tested without ActiveSky16 running and same problem. Did a typical screenshot during the pause/freeze. Notes: All flights in PMDG737 (P3D) have been ok. PMDG777 P3Dv3.4, same flight with ActiveSky16 all ok I am new to PMDG T7. I searched an found a suggestion to check FSUIPC Autosave .. I do not do the autosave.

    KSEA ILS 16's Autoland PMDG737

    Hi Dan, That screenshot was the RealAir Dukev2 / Beechcraft Turbine Duke (a couple posts previous). Sorry I cropped the ILS16L ident (I-SNQ) portion so to will post that additional screenshot here. Also, today I did a test flight (same APP from PAE in another developer's 737). I would like to send you 4 screenshots for review? Or, I could put them up on Avsim or P3D forum? About the LOC ID tone, 10-4 on that. I have a PP-ASEL.

    Quick KSEA ILS 16L LOC, G/S (front course) test in PMDG777 (screenshots) to see the range with my scenery.

    KSEA ILS 16's Autoland PMDG737

    Dan, I just now had a look in another aircraft just to see the LOC activate / distance at PAE for ILS16L (screenshots). LOC 28nm / 5000 feet G/S at 21 DME All looks good.

    The question was why is PMDG737 going to B/CRS when I press the APP button? I posted to see if other pilots are seeing the same thing.
