    SDK for PMDG 737NGX

    Wow, didn't expect those responses. I'm majoring in aeronautical engineering. I'm working my way thru school looking for ways to stay there not spending on crap beer or cars. Our group's graded senior project is to build a working flight simulator. We have pooled what little extra money we have in order to purchase the flight model and basic components which we'll use to build our own interface as well as a learning experience. If you're trying to be clever with your comment re enough money to consider an SDK, it had the opposite effect. Also, hard as it is to believe, not everyone goes to school to party and not everyone has the luxury of spending money on crap beer and cars. Have a little compassion guys and if that's hard for you then limit your replies to something constructive. Based on the other replies which actually were helpful, we did purchase the 737NGX yesterday and it looks like the SDK will work just fine for us. So, hopefully this is the end of this thread and you can stop trying to be clever.

    just purchased 737NGX installing on -i7-3.5GHz-16GB Ram-win7x64-1TB SSD-21.5MBs download-in C:/FSX not x86-no other apps running-virus off App installed quickly then started "Download DirectX" - Now 3-1/2 Hours and slider only 75% - no issues with download connection on my end - slowly moves thru SDK updates from 2007 thru 2010 and repeats. Is this normal???

    New product - new install 737ngx. i7-3.5GHz-16GB Ram-Win7x64-1TB SSD-21.5MBs download-virus scan off-no other apps running-FSX in C:/fsx not x86-FSX with Acceleratorpack Now past 3-hours and still "Installing Direct-X" going back to 2007 and forward to 2010 and repeat - slider is progressing to about 75% but L O N G time. Seems as though application installed quickly but this install of DirectX seems ridiculously slow. This was of course initiated by the v1.0 installer as purchased. Is this normal??

    Support Forum - Your Feedback Please

    Well I just ordered it. The install is in it's 1-1/2 hour point downloading and installing Directx from 2007 forward. This is a surprise. Running W7x64, 21.5 MBs download connection, virus scanner off, not installing to x86 directory. Over 90-minutes now. Slider is about 50% complete. Does this sound right - anyone?
  10. Hello All PMDG states addons require FSX/SP2. I have FSX with Acceleration pack installed. MS says do not install SP2 if you have acceleration pack. So, is it permissable / correct to install 737NGX into FSX w/acceleration pack and ignore the sp2 requirement? Thanks in advance!
  11. Thanks, the main "shop" page for FSX addons doesn't include the "or" so thanks for clarifying!
