PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    Registration Key; Flight Simulator X PMDG J4100

    Hi,

    Having just sold my genuine boxed PMDG J4100 with its legitimate registration key label inside the DVD case, the new recipient unfortunately cannot install the J4100 using that key ?

    I just stopped using the J4100 and FSX altogether, upgraded to a newer PC & FS2020.

    I'm almost certain the old PC has already been formatted, ready for disposal, but should i have uninstalled the J4100 in a set manner, or should that not really matter, especially if you know your not needing the pc!

    I'm sure that security notes your equipments Mac addresses, so if the PC is no longer used/powered or even already disposed, how can the new owner overcome the Registration Key issue, not working?

    Thank you for your time.

    Chap

    First, PMDG requires you to sign your posts with your first and last name, which you agreed to when you created an account here. You can set up a signature to avoid forgetting by following the instruction here:

    https://forum.pmdg.com/forum/main-fo...pdated-25feb19

    As far as I know, what you're trying to do is in violation of the EULA. In any event, if you wish to try to contact support, you may do so at support.pmdg.com since the forum is primarily user to user, so most of us couldn't do anything to help anyway.

      Thank you Captain Kevin.

      I bought the product retail, all legit, and now no longer use or require this product, so just sold the item complete. Not sure how Im breaking any rules, so I'll research some more.

      I will also give support a try as you suggested.

        Your purchasing of the product isn't the issue, but as far as I know, it can't be resold per the EULA.

        Your 100% right Sir!....... I've now just read the EULA.

        Who reads that stuff anyway? I will in future.

        I've already offered to receive the DVD back........but just really annoyed to read and discover just how much grip ' they ' have over your rights ?

        Thank you Kevin for the guidance.

          This is quite the norm for software. Rarely does the end user own the software; rather, the software is licensed to the user for their use.

                It did Captain, it just doesn't show up immediately. A simple refresh will reveal your signature.

              Chas, the forum software is a little weird in that when you make the post initially, it won't show up. Once you refresh the page, it will be there. As long as you have it set, which you have done, the rest of us can see it. This is the same issue with both phone and computer.
