  1. I am not much of a computer techie and some of the computer language is confusing. I think I will stay with FSX boxed version for now because I am not familiar with P3Dv4 and when I do have FSX issues, I usually can get them fixed because I am familiar with it. But P3Dv4 I am not familiar with at all. I probably should have gotten Windows 10 when I purchased my HP Z240 in December 2016, could have saved me a lot of problems. But I hate change when I finally adapt to something that works. But it never occurred to me at the time Microsoft would discontinue support and updates for Windows. 7. I had major issues just over a month ago when FSdreamteam did a GSX update, my QW757 would not upload. I found out that it was so old when I purchased it in 2011, it was not compatible with the current GSX update. As I recall, I was told to delete and reinstall my QW 757 I could not get the old purchase order number, and ended up out of utter frustration after a week of trying, of purchasing it again. The same thing happened to two of my add on airports, could not find the old purchase order from the website, which I recall I purchased from SimMarket, but no record in my purchase log, so I repurchased one of the airports.
  2. Yes, I will have to do that. The last time I got a new computer with Windows 7, I lost my PMDG aircraft in the transfer. Currently on my computer I have now, I cannot even get PMDG Operations center to work.
  3. I have been using FSX since 2011 on Windows 7. After years of updates and Add-ons to my FSX files, I will eventually will have to switch over to Windows 10 since Microsoft announced they will no longer give support or updates to Windows 7 starting in January 2020. I eventually plan on just buying a new HP with Windows 10 and the same FSX requirements I have on my HP Z240 for things to run smoothly. My question is, will transferring FSX from Windows 7 to Windows 10 cause me any grief I should be aware of? Cfoley.
  4. My PMDG Operations Center Updater does not work, and has not worked in over 2 years. I turn off Norton, and use Administrator, but the Operations Center updater simply pops up for a few seconds and then disappears. I gave up. I would like to update my liveries because the ones I have are outdated. When I purchased the PMDG products back then, they had the liveries listed to choose from.
  5. I did changed the FSX scenery complexity from "Very dense" to "Dense". That may also have helped. Also, On most occasions when I do long flights with a PMDG 747 or Level-D 767 aircraft, I will get a CTD on final, not an OOM. Also, on that particular flight I did, I landed at night. I don't know if that would have any effect with OOM. I also use Delta Virtual Airlines and if I get a CTD, I can recover the flight at where the CDT took place. I love that feature!
  6. I was able to do a fight with a PMDG 777-300 from FSdreamteam KDFW airport to EGLL London Heathrow add-on airport without a "Out of Memory" hit. It was a 9 hour flight too. I thought for sure it would happen on final approach, but didn't. Very strange. Cfoley
  7. No, I have not added anything. The problem seemed to have started after I updated FSDreamteam GSX add on. When you open up GSX in FSX, sometimes they state with a message that they have updates and you download the updates. Cfoley
  8. I have my Autogen setting set at "Normal". I have not changed any of my settings in over a year. That is why I am puzzled with the OOM problem now started after all this time. CFoley
  9. For the first time in flight simulating for 7 years, I have twice received an "Out of Memory" in FSX upon final approach or landing with either a PMDG 737 or 777 at FSDT add airports and on short flights that are either 2 or 3 hours. I have been using these aircraft for several years without OOM occurring and I am puzzled why it started now. Never had OOM with PMDG aircraft, even on 12 hours flights! I have been using Windows 7 with 64 bit operating system. Is there any possibilities why this started now? I am at a loss. I have not changed anything on my computer. It seems to have started when I updated FSDT GSX with their updates they send. Cfoley
  10. Regarding Fatal Errors, or CTD, I on some occasions get them when I use a PMDG aircraft on a long haul flight to a add on airport. But a fix, if you can really call it a "fix" is join DVA - Delta Virtual Airlines. It is a non profit flight simulation that you use with FSX. It tracks your flight with all the details and a detailed tracking map. If you have a CTD, your flight can be restored where it crashed in FSX through DVA. On a fight with a PMDG 747 from London to San Diego for example, I had a CTD on final approach to KSAN. When FSX reloaded after the CTD, I filed the same flight plan in FSX, then loaded DVA and it asks if you want to restore my flight. It will load it up where the flight had it's fatal error and you can continue your flight. I had a couple of CTD's and DVA restored them. The only drawback if you use FSpassengers on your flight like I do, it will not restore that, but at least you can reach your destination. With Delta Virtual Airlines, you don't have to be flying a Delta aircraft. You can pick any you want in your FSX menu. The only requirement is that you make a minimum of two flights a month. CFoley
  11. SimMarket is the seller of FSX products, they do not trouble shoot. I have sent emails to Overland, but get no reply.
  12. I tried several times re-downloading from my SimMarket purchase, at least 6 times since I purchased it. I contacted Overland, but never received reply from them.
  13. Okay, Thanks! I just submitted a ticket. Cf
