    P3D v4.4 CTD when loading sim

    Ok, thanks so much. I have so many add-ons it will take a while to do a full refresh. I've been doing more troubleshooting than flying so I will probably fly for a while before attempting a full refresh. I wish there was an easier way to do a full refresh.

    P3D v4.4 CTD when loading sim

    Mathijs, thank you for the reply. Are you saying the result of the meeting mentioned above has taken place and there is nothing that needs to be changed so I should be ok to try loading again? 'I now remember this issue. The way we did it is the only way to get them to work at this moment. Stefan is back on the 15th and we can ask him for more information at that time'. And it should run on 4.3 without any issues? Thank you,

    P3D v4.4 CTD when loading sim

    I wish I would have looked at this earlier. I've spent many many hours because of stutters and CTDs. I updated to 4.4 and it seemed ok but didn't realize it until now that this is probably the issue I ran into. I bought the Airbus product just after Xmas and a little after I loaded 4.4. Flights got so bad with hesitations and then CTDs I finally got rid of 4.4 and went back to an image with 4.3 on it. Then loaded 4.3 and had the same issue after loading the Airbus again but still didn't realize it. I reloaded an earlier 4.3 image and everything has been fine, however, I haven't loaded the Airbus yet. I was about ready to but thought I might check this forum. Glad I did. I'll wait until you have it fixed before I do. Please let us know when it is resolved. Thank you DagelijksGamer for finding this. Thank you Mathijs Kok for making sure this gets resolved.

    PMDG 737 NGX Boxed version updates

    I also have the boxed version and currently downloading the installer as I type this. Can I use this installer to load the PMDG_737NGX program in prepared3d and/or steam programs? Thank you, Bill

    Piper Cheyenne Issue

    I'm having an issue where when I change from full screen mode to window mode in FS the misture levers shut off. It also happens if I go from window mode to full screen mode. I'm running windows 7 ulitmate. I'm getting good a emergency restarts while airborne but would, like to resolve the issue. Any ideas what might be happening? Thanks, Bill

    Piper Cheyenne Auto Pilot issues in FS9

    I figured it out. under the main dropdown the Cheyenne isn't listed. You have to click the link below. Do you want to register another product? I thought that link was for adding another product after you registered the first one using the drop down. Thank you for the help. I got Version 4.0 I still must select an Auto Pilot item before I can turn on the auto pilot but it is the same on both FSX and FX9 so I guess it is just the proceedure you must follow. I really like the Cheyenne a lot. Bill.

    Piper Cheyenne Auto Pilot issues in FS9

    Shaun, thank you for the reply. I got the boxed version of the Cheyenne from Aerosoft, and for FS9 it is version V3.40 and for FSX V1.01. I looked for an update link in the forms but couldn't find one for boxed versions just download ones. I tried to register my product with Aerosoft and the Piper wasn't listed as a product I can register? If you could please help with further instructions I would sure appreciate it. Bill
  9. Ok I just purchased the box edition of the Piper PA-31T Cheyenne. I'm having issues the Auto pilot: 1. I can't engage the autopilot without first selecting some function like FD or HDG etc. Once I click on one of them the auto pilot will turn on. 2. The Trim up and down won't work unles I first put it in ILS mode. In Nav mode it doesn't work. If I put it in ILS mode use trim up and down and then switch to NAV it seems to work. Everything works fine in FSX but not in FS9. Is there an update for FS9 for the box edition? Windows 7 ultimate.
  10. I just ordered the Cheyenne. The main fact was I'm still flying FS9 on-line since I can't seem to find out a way to get Squawkbox to work with FSX. This way I have both available. I wish more plane manufacters would build that way. I think there are many more of us out there still running FS9. The only advantage I've really seen for FSX is the scenery in FSX is superior so I'm using FSX as a VFR platform and FS9 for my IFR online flying. If anyone is an expert on getting Squawkbox working please PM me.... Again thank you for all your input on the Cheyenne. By the way the Duke does look good...... Almost forgot. There was an additional 15% off on the Cheyenne.......
  11. Thank Folks for the input.... Have a great holiday
  12. Folks looking for some user opinions. I've just loaded FSX and having all types of issues, but that is another story. I'm thinking about purchasing the piper pa31 cheyenne made by digital aviation because I I heard there isn't any support for this product? Is that true? The GPS seems limited. Is that true? It's difficult to taxi? Is that true? I'm running windows 7 ulitmate 64. How does it work in that environment? I like that it comes with both FS9 and FSX versions for one price. I'm still flying FS9 for VATSIM flight sinces I can't get Squawkbox to work on FSX. What twin turbo engine plane would you purchase at this point in time if you were me? Thanks in advance for your input.
