  1. I've been out of the sim for over a year and just getting back in. In the Ops Center it tells me that my NGX, 747V3 and 777 need updated. When I click on "Install Update" for the products, a black window with some text code pops up for a couple seconds and then that's it. So then I run the sim (fsx) thinking they were updated but nothing was changed. So I exit fsx and run the Ops Center again and it gives me the same notifications that my products need updated. What gives? I thought this op center thing was supposed to be convenient? How do I update? Thanks
  2. I would love to see some dedication to GA aircraft by PMDG.
  3. This fixed the problem for me. I was running in compatibility mode for windows 8 (i am running windows 10). Works like it should now. THANK YOU!!!
  4. I installed the CJ2 correctly without issue (antivirus off during installation, no errors). When I load the CJ2 in FSX the frame rate drops below 1 and basically freezes the sim. I have to exit the sim completely and re start a new flight. All other aircraft work great, only the CJ2 causing problems. Specs are Windows 10 Pro, i7 6700 4Ghz, NVIDIA GTX 1070, 16gb ram. Any help would be great. Thanks.
  5. Hello, I just installed the mod and everything loads and looks correct but now the frame rate is about 1 fpm. Any ideas? I had this problem when I first installed the CJ2 and the solution was deleting the carenavigraph.dll from the main fsx folder. Thanks,
  6. Thanks for your quick reply, Jim. I tried as you suggested and it did not help, it actually made the fatal error occur much faster. This time it occurred immediately after loading the A2A C172. I am pretty sure at this point it is something to do with that aircraft only since no others seem to be effected. Particularly one livery even seems to be more problematic than others. I am going to try uninstalling and reinstalling the A2A Cessna and go from there. Otherwise, any suggestions? Thanks!
  7. Hello, I've been battling a fatal error in FSX caused by a panels.dll module failure. I have googled and tried many things before resorting to posting a new topic but I'm stumped and could really use some help. The CTD seems to only happen with the A2A C172 but here are the details from my event view. Any help would be great, Thanks! Faulting application name: fsx.exe, version: 10.0.61637.0, time stamp: 0x46fadb14 Faulting module name: panels.dll, version: 10.0.61637.0, time stamp: 0x46fadb59 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x000320c0 Faulting process id: 0x232c Faulting application start time: 0x01d25c8a4525c083 Faulting application path: E:\FSX\fsx.exe Faulting module path: E:\FSX\panels.dll Report Id: 1f0001dd-c886-11e6-9668-e56af7577eda Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:
  8. Anyway to accomplish this without using windowed mode??
  9. Thanks Fabian. Do you have to run in windowed mode with this app?
  10. I am building an enclosed home GA cockpit sim and I want to intergrate the GTN 750 for use in the cockpit via iPad or iPhone. Anybody know the best way to accomplish this? (FSX) Thanks!
  11. This is all great information, thank you! I will give chkdsk a try tonight. Hi Scott - Yes, I did look at that entry last night and all 5 lines appeared to be in place. I checked the entry against the other entries and it appeared to have everything in place. Thank you! Thanks for the help and info!
  12. I suppose I could... is this a special procedure? Genius. The scenery addon folder was missing both scenery and texture folders. I created them, re started FSX and, bam, no message about any missing files. Just to check things I loaded the NGX at Reno and everything appears to be working perfectly. Thank you!!! One question though - In the scenery addon folder there was also folders for my FlyTampa sceneries but not for any of my other payware scenery like Aerosoft, Imagine Sim, etc. Is this normal? All of my sceneries appear to be working fine. Where do I go to perform the chkdsk/r on my hard drive? My CPU is overclocked to 4.7Ghz. I haven't had any issues with it though. Performance has been great without any OOMs or anything. What sort of file corruptions are known? Thanks!
  13. I have a new issue after uninstalling Squakbox. I used CCleaner to uninstall Squakbox and when I re started FSX I got a message that I've never seen before... "Scenery area .115 missing". I checked the scenery.cfg file and area .115 is the default FSX Reno. I don't fly into Reno often but I would like it to fix this problem. Any ideas? Thanks!
  14. Hi Steve - I recently tried my hand at doing a "simple" fictional orange and white air tanker paint but I failed miserably. I definitely understand how difficult and frustrating these paints can be, especially when every other person wants a different one. I understand why you would want to get away from it for a while, especially with the upcoming release of the 777. I myself have a hard time doing anything but boating and fishing all weekend this time of year. B)
  15. I hate to be a "negative nancy" but, I don't think any of the talented painters in here are willing to do requests anymore. Unless it is a new AA or Southwest livery, good luck. :unsure:
