    FSX SE: " .mdmp"

    Attempts to load results in the occasional, following results that are logged in my FSX folder: "fsx _62615_crash_2019_1_7T21_39C.mdmp" Any suggestions, please? Doug Pelton

    FSXSE 'Free Flights' default PMDG 737

    Thanks to all: After my reinstall, I had relocated my Flight Sim X - Steam folder to Programs (86)....FSX. Just realized, after reading many posts---and in Steam---that the folder has to be in : C:\users\documents Thanks for this great forum ------------------------------------------ "What is the answer to life?

    Since reinstall, I've only saved about 3 test flights and they show up under the Free Flights upon startup. I'll search for those three and then place my 'old' batch of flights in that tfolder.

    Jim, before I reinstalled both PMDG and FSX SE I saved my flights in the folder noted above. How do I get those flights back into FSX so I can select my old saved flights? Thanks Doug Pelton

    Previous Flights Not loading

    The location for my flights is in a folder (Flight Simulator X -Steam Edition Files) in this path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX. They have Sharing rights, but none of the flights show up when I select Load and then Free Flights in my FSX: SE program window. However, they do show up in the PMDG 737 FMC as saved flights Doug Pelton

    FSXSE 'Free Flights' default PMDG 737

    Problem solved. The new install does not provide these default setups as did my 2015 install of PMDG. Doug Pelton

    Reinstall 737 base fails loading of Tutorials.

    I do believe that's the answer!! I'll stop trying to find scenarios that my 2015 PMDG install offered as default.
  10. I think I'm asking the question right (finally understand what I'm looking for 🙂 ) When I reinstalled PMDG, I no longer see the 8-or-10 Free Flight selections for PMDG, like LOWI Approach....Before Takeoff...Shutdown...etc. I wish I could be more precise, but can't find a documentation of this list. Doug Pelton
  11. Upgrade to W10, but had to wipe files/folders. On reinstall of PMDG/FSX SteamPMDG 'Missions' (?) aren't there: LOWI Approach, or Starting on Runway, for example. Doug Pelton

    Reinstalling FSXSE to Programs (86x)?

    Thanks for the great followups! Doug Pelton
  13. Read the PMDG Intro: not to load into default Program/Program (86x). Unable to change the default in Steam library----I realize this is a Steam issue and I'm awaiting answer from their Forum. But it seems like my last install WAS into C:/ program (86) and all worked fine. Doug Pelton

    Reinstall 737 base fails loading of Tutorials.

    Thanks for the reply, Roger....."Tutorials" was the wrong word. My previous install within FSxSE gave me a menu of @8 or so PMDG setups. Gawd, can't think of any of them right now. Seems like they were based on LOWI: ready for takeoff; parked; cold & dark/shutdown, etc. FMC was programmed for each scenario. Doug Pelton
  15. Just upgraded from W7 to W10. Used PMDG Installer for my 737-800 base package (Also have installed FSUIPC) and extracted file into a C:\ folder---not FSX. I can select a PMDG plane in the FSX panel, but non of the tutuorial's have loaded- (??_ Thanks Doug Pelton JetLine Gravity GT-1-- FSX-SE --Windows 10--- Intel 4th Gen Core i5 4690K (4.3GHz Overclock) Quad Core---ASRock Z170 Extreme 4, Intel LGA 1151---Graphics Processor 6GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, PCI Express 3.0; Ev3A Geforce GT 610---System Memory 8GB HyperX DDR3 SDRAM 1866MHz--Corsair Hydro Series H60 Liquid Cooling/600watt Corsair Series---(4) HP 20" monitors---GoFlite MCP - Radios/Eicas
