  1. thats odd.. I remove it in a daily basis without trouble
  2. now you have to uninstall KB4041676 it should work
  3. We are all wondering the same thing..... it is has not been released, and there is no release date in the foreseeable future. sorry :(
  4. v/s is as good as the other to modes. Difference is that V/S disregards speed.. you have to be very careful not to exceed Vmo/mmo or VFE. in many cases if you are high on your descend profile, is better to slow down and configure than using speed to maintain a high rate of descend. Even is this gets you even higher on your profile. Remeber, the number one enemy for being high on your approach is speed, not altitude.
  5. guys I believe for now the ONLY solution is to remove KB4038788. Ive been flying 747 for the last 10 days or so this way and it worked every single time. I dont care if windows stays behind on its updates, as long as my plane works. But sure this has to be definetly fixed in some manner
  6. dont think so, I tried the reinstall process and crashed anyway. Is an Issue of windows update affecting the proper operation of QOTS. IF it were the PMDG ops ctr and liveries, it would crash anytime with or without the windows updates. But 99% of us are temporary solving the problem by removing KB4038788. So, either end has to do something about it. And I definetly doubt that windows is going to modify and Update just because a few persons that happens to be flightsimmers cant use a program only half of them own. My bet would be on PMDG side. but who knows. By now I just added to my FSX checklist to remove the ill update before running QOTS, everysingle time since also Im unable to stop the download. I can stop the installation, but not the download. cheers
  7. Thing is KB4038788 is still messing somehow with QOTS I have to uninstall it every single time i rebbot/shutdown the system, because no matter what I do, windows always downloads the update. Ive tried all methods that internet suggests on how to avoid automatic windows updates, but so far is useless. It doesnt finalize the installation because I dont reboot the pc without removing said ill update. I managed to be able to use the QOTS but I have to do this every single time I run FSX
  8. my windows doesnt have that pause option. I look for it in internet and it does exist as you describe it. But for some reason I dont have it :(
  9. yes, but I think PMDG is the one that is going to have to look for a compatibility solution perhaps. I dont think windows is going to modify the update just because we simmers are having trouble with our payware planes. I agree is not a problem from PMDG, but from a modification to the OS.
  10. Just found out that, even with the network settings in "metered" Windows still downloads the update. I have to periodically check and delete the update every now and then. this is becoming anoying!
  11. my problem was with fsx and 747 ONLY.. I own 777 for fsx too and did not have troubles. And I own the 737 for p3dv4 and also no problems at all
  12. nop. I look for it and the only solution is to set the wifi conection to "metered". That way the updater wont attempt to download and install the update. w10 does not have an option to manual or automatic installation of updates. Is always automatic. I set the wifi to metered and indeed avoided de update. It says failure to download and install update XX. Now I can shut down or restart the pc without having to deal with it. I hope PMDG guys come with a solution to this update that is messing with our QOTS. im off, is late. Thank you gents!
  13. Now, how darn do I turn off the PC without installing the update again !!??
  14. I Do confirm too. Removing the mentioned update solved the problem. I can load the 747 anywhere again!
  15. Thank you Mark, I will give it a try later.
