  1. Running as Admin is the key...
  2. I am receiving an error when applying presets within PTA. Please see the text from my PTA log(s). I have uninstalled P3D v4.2 client, then re-installed. I have deleted the shaders files, to allow the program to rebuild them, and still the error persists. Here is my install log: Preset D:\Prepar3D Utils and Add-Ons\pta_2.61\rds_preset1.5\RDv1.5.ini loaded Applying preset D:\Prepar3D Utils and Add-Ons\pta_2.61\rds_preset1.5\RDv1.5.ini...

  3. Did you find a solution? I have the same issues...

    Settings File Location ?

    After further searching it appears everything is in 'the cloud'...
  5. I've had to re-build my Windows 10 install and in the process of setting up P3Dv4.2 again (bleh). So I don't have to re-do 1,000 camera settings and button.joystick mappings within ChasePlane, can someone tell me where the preferences/settings file is so that I can copy it from my Windows.old folder?
  6. You are correct! I had been using my aircraft specific profile in FSUIPC. The general settings contained a single binding for one direction of the hat switch that needed to be cleared out. That was it...
  7. This is a new issue for me. I have done the following: - Checked that it works in Windows Game Controller Settings - Checked that it works in X-Plane 11 I have it programmed as View (Pan) in P3D v4.2. No response. I have disabled controllers in the sim, and set it up using FSUIPC for the same function... no response. I do seem to be able to assign it key presses, such as zoom in/out and those work. I was using a Saitek X52 system, but currently have no other controls plugged in save for the CH Products Rudder Pedals.

    Understood - thanks to Bill and RXP :)

    Pop Up Window Not Working After Update

    It is actually under 'Vehicle' > 'Instrument Panel'... I probably should have searched for a solution harder before posting, but am I not supposed to be able to click on the unit itself in the VC and have the pop up appear?
  10. Yesterday I updated to the latest version and I can no longer access the pop up GTN 750. I have to run the add-on manager, to get it to appear a single time. Once I close the pop-up window - it is gone and I have to repeat the setup process. I'm on Prepar3D v4.1.
  11. Mix of airlines and corporate... about 8,000 hours in aircraft including the King Air 300, Falcon 20, Dash 8, most of the Citation 550/560 family. Currently flying the Citation XLS+ Part 91. Former Check Airman and Safety Officer; currently working on my CFII.

    REALITY-XP GNS V2/GTN TOUCH

    Updates are available when the Garmin Trainer software is updated, or via a cost prohibitive Garmin database subscription.
  13. Why are airport and all non-sky selected textures set to off?

    Fltplan go doesnt connect to P3D

    Hey Scott, I think the stock P3D install only had a single install; I went into the main folder and found the other three and installed... they show up in my program list. I am running as admin. My PC is connected to the router via ethernet, and I am on the router's wi-fi network. Yes, I select 'no' when prompted as to whether or not I want to run FltPlan Go on my PC (v iPad). My iPad briefly displays a message that it is connecting to FSX and that is it...
