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.

    PMDG Products in both FSX-Steam & P3Dv4

    I have recently downloaded P3Dv4 which I intend to run in parallel with FSX-Steam at least for the time being. I have PMDG B737-800 currently loaded in my FSX-Steam sim and now intend to purchase the same aircraft for running in P3Dv4. I assume that I will only need to have one PMDG Operations Centre installed and will just select the relevant aircraft/sim from the drop down menu when requiring updates/ liveries etc. Both the sims are on my C:\ drive and again I assume there should not be any conflicts when running either of the aircraft / sim in this set up.
    I should be grateful if you could confirm that my understanding of the above is correct.
    Thanks

    When you purchase/install the P3D version, it will skip the OC install, and it will all be managed by the existing single OC.

    All managed for you, so there is no worry.

          Hello Community,

          I would be grateful for some help re, the following issue.

          I have taken the step of purchasing the PMDG B737 - 800/900 base program their website.

          They have sent me a download link and activation key. When I copy and paste the download link, it takes me to this page : https://www.precisionmanuals.com/Pro...E6HUTgfa0D4hp7

          After inputting my account details, it tells me to download product. 'Click here to download this file'.

          Once this is completed, it just shows a file (which isn't a .exe) and wont allow me to open this.

          Further complicating this issue, I have no idea (after downloading) whether this file will automatically appear in the Steam edition of Microsoft Flight Sim X? At what point do I enter the product key info?


          After downloading, how do I get the PMDG B737 program to run? Where's the link/shortcut to execute the program?

          Any help appreciated

          Thanks

            The downloaded file should be a zip compressed folder. If you cannot open a zip then that's an issue you have with file extension associations. Within the zip folder you will find a readme file, perhaps a FSXSE Ream Me First file (hint read it) and the installer will be clearly identified and will be an exe file. Once installed, you will enter the key when you first load the aircraft within the simulator. Be sure to read the Introduction document after you have gotten everything running.

            Be sure you post your full name on all posts in this forum as agreed when you signed up.

          Thanks for your reply but there is no readme file within the zip folder. Simply a link which allows me to setup the program: PMDG 737 8900 NGX base package. After installing this, it takes me to an 'operations centre' .. Where is the link to actually take me to the simulator and run the program? I've genuinely never known anything so complicated when this should be so simple..

          Rant over... Thanks for any advice

            PMDG does not provide a link to start your simulator. Think of the PMDG aircraft as an addon to FSX. First start FSX and then select the PMDG aircraft from within FSX. If you need help starting and using FSX then I highly recommend you become familiar with that before attempting to take advantage of a complex aircraft.

              Hi Dan, I am most grateful for your reply and advice on becoming familiar with the FSX. I wonder if you or someone else could shed some light on 'where' in the FSX home page I may find the already downloaded version of the PMDG aircraft? ie, Home, freeflight, Multi Player Missions etc.. I cannot find it listed?
              Computer literate? - clearly not .. but flying complex airplanes, well - just a little

              Thanks for the input.

                Select Aircraft screen will list all of the aircraft installed in FSX, the PMDG aircraft will be in this list.
