  1. Hello, This is my first posting and I apologize if this has been answered in the past I couldn't find the answer myself. I recently purchased Chaseplane from Oldprop and attempted to install the application via VFX Central. When I select Direct install for Chaseplane I get the following message. "ChasePlane require the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Packages or more recent to be installed. Please refer to your product's manual." After referring to the product manual I still was unsure of how to proceed. I have Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 installed on my computer so I uninstalled and then reinstalled this program. However Chaseplane still does not recognize this and I was hoping someone had seen something like this before ? Any suggestions would be appreciated as I'm new to the flight sim world and its all a bit intimidating ! Cheers, Jack
  2. Hi, I just recently installed Prepar3d v4.1 on my computer. However when I tried to install the B747, it said that an old version of Prepar3d was detected. I had already uninstalled the old version. I even formatted the hard drive that it had been previously installed on ut it still sais the same thing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. BTW the old version v4 worked fine. Thanks.

    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!
  4. Hi all, just purchased the Maddog X P3dv3 32bit today. I read in the doc's that at teh end of the installation proces i will be asked fot the path to P3d. But this screen does not appear? I am sure I am doing something wrong here. I read that it should be instllalled in the C:\user\myname\MyDocuments\Prepar3D v3 add-ons folder. Is it necessary to create a Maddog folder within the ...\Prepar3D v3 add-ons folder before installation? Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Norbert
  5. Hi Guys, I installed the Level D 767 on my FSX SE and I find the sim to hang, stop responding for a while, then responds again and so on. I also find that when I turn on the landing or taxi lights it'll begin to hang. I use Windows 10 OS, but I'm not sure if that's the reason. Any help would be appreciated ~Asif
  6. After buying this wonderful program, I could not wait to see it. The real pain in the butt is that I won't see it at all! All because the installation together with VFXCentral just deleted my installation of the PMDG B737NGX! I had to re-install it but then I got an error that the aircraft.cfg was corrupted. Regarding this issue, I am stuck in a loop of de-installation and re-installation of both products which were extremely expensive! It would be highly appreciated if maybe one of the developers can help me out over here, Thanks!
  7. Hello I have just been aware that the V3.3 was available. I have currently V3.0 Should I Uninstall V3.0 (with the DX10 Uninstal) and Install the V3.3? Or Can I install V3.3 on V3.0 ? I have look at the V3.3 User's Guide and this is not clear for me Thank you for your help Alain Maneville Toulouse, FRANCE
  8. I am an old Mindstar customer both in age as well as not having reinstalled the G1000 software since 2010. I have recently rebuilt my PC with Windows 10, FSXse and Prepar3D v3.3.5 and have attempted to install the latest v2.11.0019 (migrating up from the 2.0.44 beta circa 2010). After the "installation" I first attempted to register via the online method with my last known Serial Number and License Key and it would not work. I then attempted it with every other manner available and had no luck that way either. Am I to assume I need a brand new Serial Number and License Key each time I reinstall this software because after review of my past notes this was indeed the trend for a fresh PC rebuild. This will only be the third install for me over the last 6 years as I commonly rebuild / reformat or upgrade my computer every two to three years as most people likely do. The first two installs were however within a single year from late 2009 to late 2010 when I built a brand new PC and had upgraded to Windows 7. I see in my notes that I did in fact use two different Serial Number and License Keys then when reinstalling. Again, the second set of these two is not working for me now either..leading me to believe I again need a whole new set. I sent in a support email to Mindstar earlier this afternoon but since it was sent on a Friday afternoon I assume a reply may be several days out. If anyone has some suggestions or know that new keys are required I would appreciate a reply as I was hoping to use the software this weekend and build a few new panel sets for Prepar3D. I will in turn provide these panels to other Mindstar customers for those interested. Lastly, if this software always requires new keys with PC rebuilds/reformats it would be great to know on the upfront (and thus see in a forum sticky and or on the website) so that I can preemptively get them on order in the future as this, much like a lot of software installs, turns into a big 3 hour headache. All time I can't bill anyone for It's terribly frustrating. That said, I understand the need for software security and it makes sense that I may need new keys, especially if they are perhaps time sensitive and made to expire after a few years or after multiple...multiple... installs but this is only the second attempt using the last key set so I'd really like to get a final answer on this as this time around was no easier than the second. Regards, Jeff
  9. I give up. I can't find any help anywhere. How do I install my Mindstar G1000 in P3d v3? Downloaded the latest version of Mindstar but only get the Mindstar/Flight Simulator Addons folder. Try to run "UpdateWizard.exe but get ""The server supporting the Update Wizard is temporarily offline. Please try again later." I did reactivate successfully. Can't find any help anywhere! Somebody please help, thanks.
  10. Hello all, I have the boxed version of 777-200LR/F from Aerosoft which includes updates up to service pack 1c. I want to get the latest service update - SP1d - and I don't know how. Per PMDG's website instructions, the only way to get SP1d is via an electronic purchase: "You will need to log-in to your eCommerce account and redownload the 777 installer from your View previous orders page or from your original purchase email." Since I have not purchased it through eCommerce (and obviously there is no email), how can I get Service Pack 1d for my 777-200LR/F ? Thank you all in advance, Ionut (John) G. Micu
  11. Greetings, I am going to perform my first ever update, moving from Prepar3D V2.4 to V2.5, and wanted to know if there are some "best practices" for loading scenery files (and other tricks), thinking forward to V2.6. I never had to update FSX (no path possible) nor P3D V1.4 (also no path possible). However, I find myself with a lightly corrupted version of 2.4 and thought I would just with a fresh new build of 2.5. But, I am really looking upstream to the eventual 2.6 upgrade, and was wondering if there was a way to decouple the Orbx/Earth Simulations files from the main sim directory. That way, at least to my thinking, if I have to do another install I can just point the updated sim to the Orbx and Earth Simulations directory. Is there a way to decouple the Orbx and Earth Simulations directories from the main directory so that an update to V2.6 does not necessitate reloading scenery? I looked in the AVSIM guide but did not find anything about manipulating scenery files. Thanks for the guidance!
  12. Hello guys, I bought MegaSceneryEarth Memphis. I want to install it with the manager but I can't because it doesn't detects any simulator... How can I solve it? Thanks! Loïc
  13. Hi, Just a general question on making client and content updates to P3Dv4. Since v4.3 has been announced it will be on its way soon and currently I am using v4.1 , is it possible to make the update/jump directly to v4.3 when it becomes available or does the LM installer depend upon have the previous minor revision installed? Thanks Mark
  14. Hi all, I downloaded and installed the 747v3 last night. During installation, there was a box that popped up saying some Microsoft software had to be installed. After a few seconds the box message changed and said it could not reach Microsoft and try again later. I searched the PMDG forums but didn't find any clues. What software failed to install, and how do I get it from Microsoft? Thanks in advance, dan davison
