  1. I've had exactly the same problem with A330 v1.0.1.0. I found the product xml file (and all the Livery Manager stuff that was installed with the A330) on my C Drive. As far as Windows 10 is concerned my Documents folder is on D drive (as are all my P3Dv4 addons), but the A330 v1.0.1.0 installer has other ideas. edit: note I was using the corrected installer, dated 15 May.
  2. I just installed the A330 v1.0.1. That created a shortcut to the Aerosoft Livery manager but if I try and open it I get an unhandled exception error. If I choose continue it shows the livery manager but with no installed liveries. Error details attached. This seems to be related the installer adding files to an incorrect Documents folder. My Documents folder is on Drive D, but the AS installer is creating a folder on the default drive C. The installer created a folder named: D:\Users\Kevin\Documents\Aerosoft\LiveryInstaller but put nothing inside it, however it also created this folder C:\Users\Kevin\Documents\Aerosoft\LiveryInstaller and put the contents there. If I manually copy the files from C drive to the correct location on D and edit the shortcut accordingly the Livery Manager opens and finds my A330 and CRJ aircraft and liveries. It seems the installer finds the correct Documents folder to install things (including the A330 itself) but for a few things it decides it can't find it and creates another folder in the default location. The installer for A330 v1.0.0.8 put everything in the correct place, as did the installer for the CRJ. unhandled exception details.txt
  3. After push and start I completed the after start flow but the after start checklist never began. What item(s) trigger(s) the checklist to commence? I even tried clicking the LSK next to AFTER START on the checklist page in CDU3. In the end I succeeded by pressing "START PUSH", initiating another pushback/start cycle. Once that completed the After Start checklist was initiated. It would be useful if this page could always act as a manual reset of the checklist system in case it gets lost. You shouldn't have to go back a step. I had already moved the start selector to NORM, but when the checklist got to that point it hung until I moved the switch to IGN/START and back to NORM. It seems sometimes the checklist expects things to be "read and do" other times it lets you run the flow first then check.
  4. Thanks Dave, once the product has matured I'll edit the camera settings. I don't like the Views system, but will use it in the meantime. It isn't a matter of opinion though, Aerosoft is wrong to do this. F9 is the default key to select the VC view and making it something else breaks that longstanding convention for no good reason except someone decided another view (similar to an old 2D panel view) is more useful.
  5. At the moment clicking the top of either the Capt or FO MCDU brings up the "settings" MCDU 2D popup. I think it would be much more useful if it opened the MCDU you clicked on. All the MCDUs are available as 2D popups but there is no clickspot to bring them up quickly. Obviously the settings MCDU would then need it's own clickspot. The current setup is not intuitive, whereas opening each MCDU with a clickspot on that MCDU would be. Similarly ECAM upper and lower have 2D popup views, but no clickspot to open them, unlike the PFD. There seems to be no 2D popup at all for the ND which is a great shame.
  6. Pressing F9 does not return the view to the VC, as it should but shows GLARESHIELD MAIN PANEL. It's very useful to be able to quickly return to the VC view using F9 and I think the A330 Pro should follow this convention.
  7. Thanks Hans, good news. Any idea when will be out?
  8. Any news about this issue?
  9. Thanks @JRBarrett, I found the updater and ran it. Good to be able to forget about getting updates from third parties.
  10. PC Aviator download link have now updated to v1.2. The latest v1.2.2 isn't yet available, have those files been released yet to third party suppliers yet? Their support doesn't reply. Can you contact them please?
  11. @Hans Hartmann with due respect to @GEK_the_Reaper, it's not my starting procedure which is the issue. Yes the fuel boost pumps are on. Even if they weren't that shouldn't stop the start valves opening. The problem has always been that you can't get the engines to crank if the panel state is not exactly correct. The hint to make cold and dark the default panel state helps, but in my case I had to select cold and dark AGAIN after loading the CRJ to enable the starter logic to work properly. Not a big issue, but it would be nice if it could be fixed. I'm using CRJ v1.200 in P3Dv4.3. I'm still waiting for the very latest download version from my third party supplier.
  12. I tried setting Cold and Dark as the default state but I found I still had to select cold and dark state again after loading to get the sim to work properly (engine starts, etc).
  13. Thanks Hans, hopefully test mode will get implemented eventually. The WXR display is static in bearing (though the shapes and colours do vary). I've attached a video of what Active Sky weather looks like on the ND. When rain returns first appear they are roughly in the correct relative position. If you change aircraft heading the returns remain at the same bearing on the ND. Comparing with the ASP4 map the visual images of storm clouds correlates well, the WXR display bears little relationship to ASP4 once heading changes are made. I tried turning the WXR off and then on but this does not "reset" the bearing, returns reappear in the same incorrect bearing. However I've noticed If I reduce range to minimum and then increase it again the weather returns are drawn in the correct bearing. Hopefully this might provide a clue as to what is going on? Note, with the Aerosoft Airbus (in FSX) and PMDG and FSL addons in P3D I don't have this problem and the ND display presents returns on realistic bearings. So I don't think this is a problem with ActiveSky, but the CRJ's integration with it. CRJ-WXR.mp4
  14. Thanks for the update, Hans. Looking forward to the release of the SP.
  15. Hi Mathijs, No worries. I'm using Active Sky for P3Dv4.
