Need some help with updating Db please

Recommended Posts

Hi folks 

A couple of days in and I can't get it, Win 7 with PFPX and NavDataPro.

 

My issue is failing to move the Db past AS1302.

 

I have cycle_info.txt from 2013 in c:\users\public\public documents/PFPX Data\NavData\

 

But...my cycle_info.txt from 09/2018 is in c:\users\public\public documents/PFPX Data\NavData\NavDataPro\NavDataPro\NavData\   

 

Thank you for any advice you can give after multiple uninstalls, and multiple options taken.

You are installing the Navdata updates too deep, there should not be any sub-folders to \PFPX Data\Navdata

 

All NAVDATA files should reside in c:\users\public\public documents/PFPX Data\NavData\

Thank you, I though so too, but where are those folders coming from?

 

Am I safe to delete them, I thought Id better check here first.

Sorry ...just to say...my NavDataPro path is 

c:\users\public\public documents/PFPX Data\NavData\

You have most likely configured your NavDataPro client wrongly.

 

This is how it should look like for PFPX:

Yes thank you guys, that's my path. I'm going to remove everything, delete the rogue folders and reinstall.

Hi folks ,

 

I'm still stuck with the same problem, cannot update database past 1302

 

I have a feeling it's to do with my using a French version of Windows where 'Utilisateurs' is used for the C:/ tree instead of 'Users'

 

Nav data seems to have no issues translating this, but not sure about PFPX. 

 

Am I out of options??

 

Here's some screenies:

EDIT:

 

Deleted my original post.

 

Why are you mapping the Airbus data to PFPX in NavdataPro ???

Thank you SR Cooke, Each time I do a NDP update, it creates the folders Aerosoft/Airbus_Fallback/NavDataPro/NavData  inside c://users/documents/public/PFPXData/NavData/  and places the New Update in there!!!

I guess that's  the backup, so where's the new download?

 

Rapidly losing interest in this thing. Why are the file paths so set in stone?

Update your NDP entry to that shown by Tom in the post above

 

As I do not use AS NavdataPro  you need assistance from the AS staff if necessary, maybe creating a post in the NavdataPro board.

Removed everything, Updated again, unchecked create backup, still only have the Aerosoft/Airbus_Fallback/NacDataPro/NavData  and the update is in there. Guess what? PFPX can't find it.

Of course it will not, the Airbus data has absolutely nothing to do with PFPX, NDP is not correctly configured.

Voila! This is my problem, it's configured exactly as Tom has said, always has been, and I'm going crazy going around in circles.

The last image of NDP you posted links Aerosoft Airbus to PFPX, compare that to Tom's entry indicating correctly PFPX data.
