  1. would have been nice if it was but unfortunately not checked -thanks for your suggestion though -cheers
  2. Ahhhhhh.....my home away from home - bring it on asap......... please.................................
  3. Finally found the file and it is running with administrator permissions. Has a really strange user as the principal user "S-1-15-2-2320493860-4170237812-2754583851-87595188-3105168737-19246609-3290264947" which I assume is some shade of Microsoft but change options are greyed out and I can't delete or change my other user accounts. Do you have the same user of the flightsimulator.exe file ? Cheers Pete
  4. Hi @taw1962Not a silly question and thanks for your suggestion. It was one of the issues we pursued and I think your right in that it has some bearing on the problem. My problem is that when I built this machine, being the only one that uses it, I set my login as the administrator to get around issues I had previously experienced on my older FSX machine with Windows defender and performance updates issues. I have tried logging out as administrator and logging in using my default user account but then of course MSFS isn't available as it was purchased and installed on the admin login. If MSFS had an exe file I could simply change the permissions from Admin to my default user and everything would be apples but as far as I am aware this isn't possible ??? I am also running win10 Pro which I believe could be contributing to the problem. Once again thanks for the suggestion. Cheers Pete
  5. There is another consideration not mentioned in this thread and that is the issue of a number of us who purchased the SIM on release last year who still can't purchase ANY products from the "Market Place" despite three re-installs all 178Gb of it and 3+ months following every direction of support ??? without success until they eventually gave up. So without being able to purchase from individual developers like Aerosoft and JustFlight etc we would have no access to quality add on aircraft at all. I have spent hundreds if not thousands of dollars on add-ons for FSX and XPlane and to have a developer like Carenado flick you the bird when you ask to purchase an old favourite like the WACO direct, because I cant use the Market Place and which I have previously purchased from them direct for both FSX and XPlane sticks in my craw. I noted a previous post from Mathijs saying one of the reasons Aerosoft sells in both markets is that they value the contact with their customers which is why I keep coming back to them - something Carenado and the other exclusives should think about - as Carenado previous customers are no longer theirs, they are now customers of Microsoft. As an aside I cannot for the life of me understand what is so hard about be able to buy add-ons through the Microsoft Store as well as the Market Place - That's where I bought the sim - That's how the rest of the SIM World works so what's the Problem ?????? To be honest I will just about be content once I get my hands on the Twin Otter (which I also have in FSX and XPlane) to add to the CRJ and my JustFlights PA28s and a couple of others in MSFS. I'm just about over the whole MSFS experience from what I've experienced to date so when its down or crashed by a the next Windows Update I can at least retire to the no hassle XPlane world with my BAe 146 and imminent XPQ400 and other old favourite's - The world over there doesn't look too bad with a $1000 bucks or so of ORBX regions etc and who knows what XP 12 will bring as it matures.
  6. It all looks fabulous and the wakes even more so. Went back to X-Plane 11 for a run around the block in the old girl just to soothe the anticipation. Have to say the extended otter is still a nice bit of kit a lot like a comfortable old sweater but still hanging out for this new girl.
  7. Yes thanks as was Mathijs statement - Just have to wait along with every one else now. Cheers
  8. I hope you're right. Just checked the latest on the active ticket - as far as they can see all the accounts are right and have no suggestions but have bumped it up to the next level whatever that is for further investigation. If I had to sit here looking at the Otter listed in the marketplace and couldn't get it I would probably toss a brick through the monitor. The only addon I've been able to purchase was ORBX Sydney. Cheers
  9. Hi Mathijs - like others on this forum I'm really hanging out for my favorite AC through the years in FSX and X-Plane. Will you be selling direct as well as in the MSFS Marketplace ? Since buying MSFS I have been unable to purchase anything through the SIM Marketplace since installation and still have an open ticket lodged 26 Dec 20. Cheers Pete
  10. Thanks Ben - I assume they will tidy up the software when the action slows down a little. Hope you enjoy fair skies and plenty of daylight under your wheels - Cheers Pete
  11. Hi Guys - been struggling to set up the bravo throttle - selector, Decrease/Increase knob etc but finally seeing some daylight. Have been chasing my tail with the CRS and VS buttons seeming to swap places on me and decided to start again and use XPlane for the button assignments which is when I noticed that the interactive assignment buttons in XPlane are different to those on the hardware. The Autopilot Hardware button VS, when pressed, lights up the X-Plane Assignment Key no 6 labeled as CRS on the diagram and in the labeled assignment list. Am I right to assume that it doesn't matter and to just go ahead and assign it as VS or CRS ?? Would appreciate any suggestions. Cheers Pete PS I don't care how many hours it takes me to set this up as far as I'm concerned the Alpha and Bravo are the Omega I've been waiting years for - just sooooo smooth. PSS - dosen't mean I wouldn't appreciate any X-Plane .jsons from some kind persons though 🙂
  12. Thanks Heinz - no need for a ticket - Your suggestion of the CTRL C and CTRL V did the trick. Thanks mate. Cheers Pete
  13. Hi Guys - Just purchased a 12mth NavDataPro Subscription. Downloaded the NavDataPro.zip files containing both the data set and charts installers. Installed the Data Set ok but when I attempted to install the Charts the splash window requested both my email and serial as did the dataset but unlike the dataset install would not allow me to paste the serial into the window. I then manually entered all 56 characters into the window a number of times but it returned an error message each time I tried. Whilst attempting to validate the install a window opened offering an update which I closed by checking the remind me later box. As mentioned above I downloaded the combined dataset and charts as a package and as such I only have the one serial key for both which I assume is SOP? Would appreciate any suggestions. Cheers Pete
