    Pilot2ATC Installation

    Hi Guys, would love if someone can assist me with the installation of Pilot2ATC for xplane 11. I have followed the installation guidelines in the manual, and everything has installed perfectly. As soon as you startup Pilot2ATC it gets to +- 5% loading, and after 5minutes or so gives a long complex error message regarding the programing Unable to initialize Database, with various sql errors. Do I need to install any sql server products et cetera for Pilot2Atc to run, or am I missing something ? Please help.
  2. I have been Running FSX and FSX SE side by side on the same Harddrive on 2 Computers for a long time, With No Problem . After a Hardrive Problem, requiring a reInstlall, I find that FSX SE will Not create the App Data Files Properly ? FSX-SE does create a FSX file in both App Data Roaming and Local. but will NOT open a FSX SE file ? FSX and FSX SE will both run Seemingly normal, but are operating out of the same FSX file in the Appdata Folder ? When I Completly Uninstall FSX, and run only FSX SE, FSX SE will continue to create the FSX Entries, but will NOT create a FSX SE entry in the App Data Folder ?? I suspect a Registry Error, but have NO Idea how to find it ?? HAAAAAAALPP !! - Johnman

    FSX Installation Folder?

    Hey all, I downloaded the ZIP file from simMarket, installed the software from the installer, but now I can't see the aircraft in FSX. Where am I supposed to install the aircraft to? I've downloaded it to 3 different places. The Load Manager works, but can't access the aircraft in FSX. Cheers! Ben H.
  4. Hello, yesterday (23.10.17) everything worked fine with ChasePlane but today, it didnt Startup anymore for some reason. I have made the decision to uninstall and install ChasePlane again, now ChasePlane doesnt install in VFXCentral after a view minutes i am getting an Error here it is: Installation Error: System.Exception: cpDownloadError at A.B.A(Boolean ) at VFXCentral.MainWindow.A(Object , DoWorkEventArgs ) at System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker.OnDoWork(DoWorkEventArgs e) at System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker.WorkerThreadStart(Object argument) here is also an Screenshot of it: Also the Webside of FSFX is loading extremely long for me. (I uninstalled VFXCentral and installed it again aswell) But at downloading VFXCental i needed to use my Phone's Hotspot, otherwise wouldnt have downloaded. I hope i can use ChasePlane as soon as possible. Greetings Trevor

    Installation Error on Win10

    Everytime when I try to install FSX on Windows 10(64-bit) the installation is almost finished. But when it says "Registrating Modules", an error occures and the setup aborts the installation. I need hlp, because I alreay re-installed Win10 and I actually just want to test my freshly bought PMDG 777&737 and Airbus A320/321!
  8. Hi, i bought the DHC-2 on the flash sale as my first Milviz aircraft. Now my normal installation procedure (in times of v4) is to first install sceneries or aircraft to a dummy folder with just an prepar3d.exe in it. Then i move the folders to my preferred custom directories, copy the effects to my main custom effects and so on, generate my xml's and whatever. Business as usual in the meantime and generally working flawlessly afterwards. After the Beaver installation i immediately thought i maybe will run into some difficulties this time because of the MVAMS directory with its files or maybe the xmltools.dll. Anyway, i moved the folders to my preferred custom locations and started the sim (P3Dv4). Okay, first problem when i loaded the Beaver was a lot of tiny windows each telling me a specific sound file wasn't found in ..panel\mvsounds. Afterwards i saw there was no ...panel\mvsounds folder at all, but a DHC-2 Beaver Milviz\DHC-2_XML_Sounds folder containing all these missing sound files. Just for the fun of it i created a ..panel\mvsounds folder and copied the sound files into it. Next time loading the aircraft i had no more messages of missing sound files and i could hear (probably) the correct sounds. But yes, it just didn't feel like a correct installation to me... And yes, it was me doing this. And even more the MVAMS tool seems not to work. For example, directly after the installation and BEFORE moving any folders i choosed the GTN750 but then, after moving my folders and loading the aircraft the first time there were only the standard avionics. Again, after manually adding the panel=GTN750 in the aircraft.cfg the GTN was there and working. So the bottom line is, is it somehow possible to install the aircraft into a directory outside the main sim folder and without having to manually editing or moving files afterwards? BTW i don't even know if everything is working properly now as i didn't spend much time in the aircraft so far and, as i said, it definitely "feels" like a weird patchwork what i did. If everything will work as it should now, i maybe would keep my installation (and never touch it again..) but i would always wonder if i could have had it in a more straightforward installation. And some problems still resist anyway like the other options in the MVAMS because the tool doesn't work with my installation. Any clarification appreciated! Thanks.
