    DRM/Activation or No?

    I've bought Carenado aircraft from third-party retailers (Aerosoft) in the past and haven't found the serial system too intrusive, since it doesn't phone home, and I'll still be able to use my stuff if the company goes tits up. But, one virtual pilot shoppe informed me a few months ago that Carenado (as well as Alabeo) have begun using an activation scheme. True, or not? I understand from the Carenado FAQ page that individual retailers may handle things their own way, so it may be this one retailer.
  3. Hey guys, so after several reinstalls i am about to lose it here. I have read through all other threads related to this but cannot find any answers that would help me. I have restarted several times as well. FlexNet 64 is running ok no problem. No weird things inside of my hosts file either... The only thing that has changed for me is my hardware - mainboard cpu and gpu, so all other addons I am running asked for reactivation and they reactivated just fine.. I am about to reinstall P3D from scratch (which is a MASSIVE PAIN) with all the addons I currently have... pmdg is the only one that refuses to work.. I am getting to "Creating Context" and then it goes to error where it claims it cannot connect to activation server. Thanks alot,
  4. Hello! I'd like to report a problem that I've had when trying to activate the J41 on FSX-se on the past week and a possible solution that, although obvious once you start investigating, may not be so plain simple for everybody. Also, this is a suggestion of a topic to be added to PMDG Knowledge Base on the Support Portal, since this may be a recurrent problem. - Problem: I'm running a FSX-SE only install and was unable to activate the J41 because of a missing SimConnect version. I formatted my PC recently and this time I only installed FSX-SE on it. I had no problems so far using any of my addons, including most PMDG planes that I own, with exception of the J41. The activation screen simply didn't show up when initializing the aircraft. I tried selecting the aircraft from the FREE FLIGHT screen and after starting a default flight (which is unchanged from factory default), but none worked. In an initial investigation of the problem, I opened Windows Event Log. There were 17 repeated error events; Up to 5 logs had been generated per second. Basically, they contained a message saying that Windows failed to generate activation context for the PMDG_BAe_JS4100.dll and saying that SimConnect version 10.0.61242.0 could not be found. Indeed I did not have this version of SC installed for some reason. I searched the internet for the installer, downloaded (from a safe provider, of course) and installed the software, proceeding to activate the J41. And it finally worked. I thought it would be useful to report this, since other people may be having or may eventually have a similar problem.

    Activation Issue

    Hello all, I have been losing my mind over this Prepar 3D v4 with PMDG 777...I have downloaded, updated...every thing I can think of and read about...When I open Prepar3Dv4 I am able to choose the 777, load it and it seems to be going through all of it's proper initialization. The moment I touch anything, it informs me it will shut down (and it does) leaving me a message about activating my PMDG variant. The thing is, I never was prompted to enter the activation key...I have no idea how or where to do it now. I received the link for these liveries via PMDG, all bought and paid for with the keys...seemed to download fine...but now what??? It is like the PMDG software is only partially communicating with the Prepar. Thanks Much!

Normal Routine of Installation: Kaspersky Disabled All installed well Restart PC FSX Enter Activation Code [Kaspersky still disabled] Error, "Activation Code not vallid" Dead Cockpit Uninstalled Same procedure Same result I've checked FIREWALL (although disabled) and nothing of PMDG is blocked and FlexNet is open for incoming and outgoing. Any help?? Terblanche Jordaan FACT

    Product activation

    For years I have enjoyed the immersive experience of FSX and PMDG's 737 NGX. Today, I have launched FSX as normal (it opens with a PMDG aircraft loaded) and for the first time ever, I have been asked for a PMDG product activation code. I dug this out and applied it and in return, got the response in the attached screen grab. FSX will not load after this sequence of events. Can anyone help me with a workaround?

    No activation window

    I remember reading somewhere on the forums that the plane can be installed and activated on up to 2 computers at the same time. I tried installing it on my laptop, however, I ran into some trouble: On the first install, everything seemed fine, but despite having been activated successfully, there was no landing gear or PFDs (I think this is the anti piracy system kicking in, right?). So I uninstalled the plane via Windows Control Panel, removed all of its files from the FSX folder, deleted its entries from the dll.xml file, and removed the fsx.cfg file. Then I started FSX to make sure all the changes took place - so far everything seemed to work as expected. Then I reinstalled the plane. Once I fired up FSX again, it asked me whether it should load the various .dll files it needs. I clicked "yes" on all of them. After selecting the T7 from the menu, it asked to load one or two more .dll files. I know it's supposed to show the activation window when the plane is selected for the first time, but it did not. I've tried reinstalling multiple times but still can't get the thing activated. Everything worked brilliantly when I installed it on the first computer (my main gaming rig). TL;DR: Activation window won't show up despite several reinstalls. Halp. Running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit with UAC disabled. CK
  10. Hello, as win764 won't allow me to setup Oculus Rift software, I've setup another OS (win10), on the same system (dual boot), and then I've installed there a second copy of p3dv4, without any problem with any addon yesterday I set up precipitFX on win10 too (again, same system) today VFX central on win7 is telling me that I have exceeded the limit of activations, specifying that the software may be used on one PC only, yet that's my case I have requested an activation reset, in the meantime I am asking, please, some clarification about this software behavior, thanks

    No Activation Window PMDG 777 Base Pack

    Hi Everyone! First time inquiring here. i have recently purchased a Boeing 777X base pack from PMDG, but I have been unable to activate the product over the past few days. I am the proud owner of the PMDG NGX package as well, which I recall had asked me to enter my purchase code after an internet download. However after running the installer for the PMDG 777, it did not ask me for an activation. When loading the aircraft into Flight Sim X (SP2, installed, checked and verified), before clicking the "Fly Now" i get an error which states "initialization of license library failed" . If i skip this error and head into the flight I see the aircraft with no landing gear, Unable to move the control surfaces and with black gauges. I have attempted to do a complete uninstall and re-install it multiple times, with the same results. i have also reinstalled FlightSim from the top up with no change in the situation. I have already submitted a ticket with PMDG support and after receiving instructions for initial troubleshooting (which failed) they have become unresponsive. I would appreciate any help and suggestions regarding the matter, and have not been able to find this topic discussed earlier. Warm Regards, Gautham Manoj Friday, September 4th Dubai, United Arab Emirates

    737 NGX activation problem

    i've bought the 737ngx + expansion recently, but the activation is giving me hard time, the error is "unable to connect to activation server" and then "you don't have a valid license installed for this product" i'm in a campus and i've thought that the broblem could be that here some internet ports are blocked but the problem, even trying to activate it with an external 4g connection, is the same, i seen that i can not connect to the pmdg site with this pc (chrome give me an ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED ) i realy need the 737 for the flight training that i'm doing, so thanks for your time
  14. Dear AVSIM Community I'm working currently with Prepar3D V. 2.5 and the PMDG Boeing 737-800NGX Add On. The goal is, to reproduce a quite original Boeing 737-800 Cockpit while most of the buttons and switches are real and some are displayed on a Screen in the Cockpit. Since not all of the gauges are movable to a second screen, I did my own XML Gauges which can be displayed on the Cockpit Screen. But here's the problem. While working on the Backup Harddrive, which is an Image of the original HDD, I experienced a problem with the activation of Prepar3D. One day when I turned the Computer on, the activation screen came up. I had this problem before, so i made a backup of all the relevant files and cloned the original image of the Prepar3D Installation on the Harddisk. This worked the first time quite well but now it looks like it was never activated. Do you know this problem? What would you suggest? Thank you very much for your help. I really appreciate it. Best regards Pascal

    737 NGX not activating

    hey everyone, I know this has been discussed many times before here, but i'm setting up a flight simulator and i'm still facing this problem. Whenever i enter the activation key, i get the message "error, can't connect to activation server. Please make sure you have an internet connection.". i do have internet, and i have tried everything from reinstalling as admin, running as admin, installing the simconnect.msi from the p3d folder. I've browsed through the forums trying many solutions, such as allowing port 8888, entering the activation codes in different formats, reinstalled everything including p3d and no luck. Im running p3d version 2.5, windows 7, and all pmdg addons are legit. If anyone has figured this out, help is immensely appreciated.
  16. Hi all, Further to my post this morning, all activation issues have been resolved. We now have full control of the activation server and thus this will NOT happen again. You must download the latest version of PTA via the "My Account" section of the website - the version number is now 2.52 Thank you for your patience & support - I appreciate it. Matt
  17. Hello All, Yesterday I started FSX:SE and selected my 737-700 winglets model. When it loaded, a screen popped up and said that I didn't activate my PMDG yet. I did not torrent this, I clearly bought it but It's saying that I have to "activate" it. Thanks for your help --KH Here is what the image said: " Your PMDG 737NGX Base Package is not activated yet. Please select and activate a PMDG 737-800NGX or 737-900NGX variant first. Note that there are separate product keys for the 800/900 Base Package and the 600/700 extenstion package. Please make sure to use the correct key. The simulation will now exit." I have never had a problem with PMDG and FSX:SE until now...

  19. I just bought both version 772 and 773. I have problems activate both products but I have not seen where to put the activation code in P3D version 2.5. Where exactly I put in the activation key when the aircraft is loaded up because is not like how you put it in FSX. Would some one nice guide me how to do it. You can view my info on my name for the email address. Thanks in advance. Serge Dardenne
  20. Hi All, Been using the PMDG a/c on and off for several yrs. Had the B737NGX installed on my WIndows 7 PC for about 4-5 yrs now. Recently upgraded to Windows10 - doesn't work perfectly but good enough. When I started up my FSX for the first time in ages after the upgrade and tried running the PMDG 737NGX (had all the patches up to about a year ago) it keeps asking for my activation code (which I put in and it was happy with), after which I could never get the engines started (not sure if it was me, but I followed the proceedures I knew worked in the past - nothing just keeps spooling up but adding in the fuel flow it refused to spool up). But if I close down FSX and restart it after adding in my activation code (which it accepts) it then asks for it again - every time. Any ideas? Thanks, David

    Exceeding activation?

    Over the past six month I have incurred many faults with my computer. Installing and re-installing windows/FSX etc, I believe all the problems have now been sorted out. However, installing NGX 737 has been denied with the following "The activation of the fulfilment is denied by the policy because max extra activations exceeded". The purchase was disc not download. What is required to activate my installation ??

    Do I need to unregister PMDG 777 ?

    I have my PMDG 777 (777-200LR/F Base Package + 777-300ER Expansion Pack) installed on my current computer. If I upgrade my OS (Operating System) from Windows 7 32-bit to 64-bit and need to uninstall FSX until the completion of upgrade, do I need to unregister PMDG 777 in the FMC and register it again after the reinstall of FSX ?
