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.

    CO Routes

    Hi

    Cant load CO Routes ,only route showing in FMC is " LOWIEGLL001 ". I Checked all saved and imported rte. files in D:\P3D\PMDG\Flightplans\NGX folder and all there.I do not see the file LOWIEGLL001 in either Flight Plan folder or NGX folder.This all worked fine up until today.Updated P3D to ver 4.5 a couple of days ago, didn't seem to be any issues. Not sure what folder NGX is looking for Flight Plans. Is there a way to manually direct PMDG to look in NGX folder?

    Thanks

    Kevin, you got the right folder <sim root>\PMDG\FLIGHTPLANS\NGX\ so it is a mystery why the FMC is not displaying those rte files. Be interesting to find where LOWIEGGL001.rte is located.... can you find it?

        Finding that file may reveal why the NGX is not using the expected folder for coroute function. There are no settings or options that determine this. When you updated P3D I assume you first uninstalled components and then installed 4.5 components in same location. When you select About from the P3D menu does it confirm you have 4.5 version?

      Solved !

      Apparently, P3D V4.5 installs PMDG 737-800 in " C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\PMDG ". Not sure how the other PMDG folder got in the main P3D folder on the "D" Drive.Still new to P3D, and I'm sure still lots to learn about it.

      Thanks for your Help.

        Actually, that is more of a problem. That path you provided is the default path and indicates, at least according to your Windows registry, that P3Dv4.5 is installed at C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4. Does this mean your P3dv4.4 was on the D drive? Did you uninstall the NGX and reinstall it on the C drive?

        When running the P3D installer did you forget to click on the Options button and change the installation path?

          Hi Dan

          Your right.Now I'm scratching my head,because, when I originally installed P3D I pointed to the D drive . When I updated to 4.5 I don't recall even being asked for location.I have included a couple of photos of the D drive folder and the C Program Folder.Some folders are duplicated ,but P3D exe is in C Program Folder.I ran P3D and NGX and all working fine but now I'm not sure what to think.Any Thoughts? Just checked and yes PMDG did install in C Program Files.Does this mean a complete reinstall?

          Thanks

            The P3D installer never asks for install location, you have to push a button on the lower left labeled Options and then you point it to your D location

          Thanks
