  1. Re-installed MSFS 2020 today 2/26/23. This time I had to do it via XBox. When installation was complete, there was no Community folder. I had a backup and tried to install somewhere near MSFS but did not know how to tell the App where to find the Community folder. Can someone assist me with this? I don't know, has the Community folder been removed? My Computer Specs: Alienware Aurora R11 Windows 11 Intel Cre 17-10700KF -CPU 3.80GHz NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super 32GBMemory 2GB SSD / 512GB SSD / 1TB SSD / 1TB HDD
  2. Call me mad (?) but now that I have FSX running sweetly under DX10 I was thinking that it's time to remove FSX from my old 1TB HDD and put it on my brand new 240GB solid state drive! I already have a 60GB SSD for the Windows 7 OS but there's not enough room for FSX on there and would rather keep FSX away from the OS and program file folder/s. As far as I'm aware SSD's are significantly faster than an older HD? It certainly boots my OS much more quickly than previously. Are many of you running FSX from an SSD? Did you see much of an performance improvement? Any tips what/what not to do? Cheers Adam
  3. I have just reformatted my HD, and wish to re-install my PMDG products. I have the following files; PMDG_737_6700_NGX.zip PMDG_737_6700_NGX_3118_SP1b.zip PMDG_737_6700_NGX_3118_SP1c.zip PMDG_737_8900_NGX.zip PMDG_737_8900_NGX_3057_SP1.zip PMDG_737_8900_NGX_3118_SP1b.zip PMDG_737_8900_NGX_3219_SP1c.zip PMDG_737_8900_NGX1.zip PMDG 737 6700 NGX RTM PMDG 737 8900 NGX SP1 In what order do I need to install these files? Thanks,
  4. HELP!! I recently installed the PMDG 747X for fsx and due to problems with my computer, I had to delete the MSFSX folder. I re-installed it today after taking out every part of my computer and replacing it. I booted up fine, reinstalled fsx and all my payware addons and then I got to the PMDG 747X. I loaded up the installer <Download Version of the Installer> and it came up with a error message: The setup has detected that version 2.1 has already been installed...This setup installs a previous version of the software...you will have to uninstall the previous version before installing this one. I thought <no dramas> and then went to control panel and uninstall a program, then clicked on the uninstall PMDG 747-400/F. I waited but nothing loads up. I need to reinstall this plane and the update. HELP!!! On a side note, when I try and uninstall from the control panel the mouse turns into a loading animation but no uninstall program opens. Sigh. Any way to remove then reinstall this aircraft would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance, Felix Harrison.
  5. Hi there, I am new to the forums and am very sorry if this question has been asked before but I could not find it. When I purchased my 747 package I had trouble getting it to work due to a corrupt cfg file. I ended up submitting a support ticket and the guys at PMDG sorted it out for me. My question is that if I was to reinstall fsx which I would like to do would my PMDG 747 work after reinstalling the package or would the cfg file be corrupt once again making me have to try and get the PMDG guys to fix it again? Thanks in advance.
  6. Hello! As the title suggests i need help with some wierd problems. i have enjoyed fsx steam for 3700 hours. After a fresh reinstall of FSX STEAM i have been experincing crashes 15 to 10 minutes into the flight, and i dont have any autogen/3d objects(buildings, trees, etc). I reinstalled because of the no autogen/3dobjects. but even on a fresh install and no addons, no tweaks in the CFG and anything else didn´t touch the settings, i get the crashes 15 to 10 minutes into flight (NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE even with addons and tweaked cfg) and oddly enough no 3d/autogen objects. Please help i am quite lost here. I have tried the UIautomationcore.dll thing and compatibility mode setting in proberties. I have reinstalled multiple times today to no avail, i am quite sad over here! Any help would be usefull! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Pictures taken at friday harbour with default settings, cfg and no addons. http://imgur.com/z6l4Nad http://imgur.com/KSuXY24 http://imgur.com/8sot3In ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Regards Oscar!
  7. I purchased ASN a couple of years ago and just reinstalled P3D v3.2. How can I get my license so I can reinstall it now? Thanks, Howard
  8. I have just got prepar 3d v3 and have ftx orbx for fsx steam , do i have to re-install the orbx products to work with prepar 3d?
  9. Hi everyone, Finally got a good rig. It came with a 220GB SSD (boot) and a 1TB hard drive. I have, from my older computer, a 1TB SSD which I used as my boot drive. I'd like to use that drive in place of the 220GB SSD that came with the new computer. How can I do this? Also... bonus question: when I set up my new computer, it asked for my Windows password. I didn't realize it wanted my login password for the PC (rather than my XBOX login) so I reset it... no big deal. However, when I put my SSD back in my old computer and started up (now using my new password) I got in without issues, but it no longer recognizes me as Administrator, the background is solid black, a bunch of icons are just white pages and I can't launch a bunch of programs! Any ideas? thanks! Andrew
  10. It's been years since I did anything with FS9 files so I'm unsure about this process . . . . I have FS (and all addons) on it's own drive, but my OS drive died and I lost files that default to My Documents and C:\Users. My entire FS installation is good except for those ^ missing files. If I install a fresh FS9 in a new location (a third drive) those files currently missing should get placed in the above locations. Does that sound right? Am I missing anything? (Windows 7)
  11. Hi, I had FSX installed onto my HDD, but as I was purchasing the NGX I decided to move the file over to my SSD. I didn't do this completley conventionally using Steam Mover. This worked and everything is going well!. However I now wish to install every steam related application to a 250GB SSD I have just purchased. As steam mover uses links to allow the game, I'd like some advice as to how to approach this. Do I need to revert the step by using the back arrow so the game is now completley on my HDD first? How will this affect the NGX? I am concerned that I'll do this and then lose my NGX (which I absoloutley love!) and thus the money I spent on it. I'd like some form of reassurance that if this happens I will be able to get my NGX back and reinstalled? My set up: SSD1: OS, Steam.exe, Steamapps, FSX, HDD: Steamlibrary, FSX Shortcut + 10 games. SSD2: I would like everything other than the OS on this SSD including FSX:SE and NGX. I hope you can shed some light on this. Kind Regards George Hunt
  12. PMDG 737NGXers.... I recently upgraded my PC - only the case & some drives were kept!. Went to a Z77 mobo, way more RAM, a primary SSD, and Windows 8. I fully reinstalled FSX and all add-ons. Things went well, but I was leaving the PMDG 737NGX for last, fearing that because it was the most complex, it would be a tricky install. And of course in the middle I updated to Windows 8.1.... I must report that the whole install went VERY smoothly and more quickly than before. It prompted to me go nuts and install all the liveries, updated FMS data, etc. Bottom line is I was able to jump right in and fly without a hitch. Thanks for building a solid product! Sherman Horton
  13. I'm sure this is an often asked issue, but I've not been able to find a definitive guide to ensure I don't mess things up. I guess there's a simple answer and I'd appreciate the guidance. Apologies if I've missed the appropriate info. Products PMDG 737 base package Running on P3D v4 Only ever been installed on the PC in question Issue: I suspect I may be heading to an uninstall of all my sim components, and a step by step reinstall, on the same PC. Right now I expect I'll be installing to the same physical drive too. Question: Do I need to UNREGISTER the 737 via the CDU first or not? (or just reuse my original activation code once reinstalled) If there's a clear guide on approach and things I should not do, that would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Dave Rogers
  14. Have spent a long several days reinstalling FSX onto new SSD's but not satisfied so I'm starting over..again...I'm a longtime simmer and FS user, but I want to confirm the order of reinstall and see if anyone has any suggestions. I go in the following order 1. FSX 2. SDK (run FSX and exit) 3. FSX Acceleration 4. SDK SP1 5. SDK SP2 (run FSX and exit) (do the usual tweaks and fixes in FSX.cfg) (run FSX and exit) 6. FSUIPC 7. Run FSX and Exit (test wideserver/wide client) 8. Vpilot/Simconnect and test 9. ASN on remote client and test simconnect 10. FTX Global Base (run FSX and exit) 11. FTX Vector (run FSX and Exit) 12. Install Regional sceneries 13. Install Airports 14. Install addon aircraft Let the tweaking begin! Of course on it's own drive, running as adminstrator, etc. Any thought or suggestions as to this methodolgy? Jeff
