  1. Hi again Simon - it seems my V3 purchase for FSX came from PC Aviator way back in 2011. My recollection is that V4 came from the FSS (now defunct). I have searched my system as best as I can, but I cannot find any reference to that purchase (I had a computer crash a few months back, so that's no surprise) ...... so I guess I'll have to re purchase. Running the V4 with P3Dv5.1 seems to hook up and run OK ...... but I presume I would be missing out on some new features. Anyhow, thanks for your help.
  2. Further searching since last post indicates the update BASE product for P3D5 is probably a "pay for" upgrade, and not just a free "update". Could you confirm that this is the case, and I will forthwith purchase the upgrade. My P3D4 version was from PC Aviator. When I ran the downloaded "updater", it told me the P3D5 client could not be found, which bears this out I guess. No worries, just waiting for your confirmation, and I'll get on with it. Cheers ... Tom.
  3. Thank you for your response Simon. I've only been using P3D5.1 for a few months, and just today got around to getting STB upgraded. My understanding of how this worked was obviously a bit hazy. I had it working fine on P3D4 for ages. I assumed, it seems wrongly, that it would be just a matter of running the Data Server Setup and Update as mentioned above ...... obviously NOT! As I am running both STB and P3D5 on the same computer, that exercise was a waste of time. It seems I have to run the front end installer - is there an updated one for P3D5 which I would have to
  4. I have just run the "STB Data Server 5.0.2020.30900 Setup And Update for Prepar3D-V5" It all seemed to go OK as did the DB setup etc etc, but I cannot see how to get the "front end" client running. P3D seems to connect, and "add-ons" shows STB Common, and STB Data Server ticked. Previous P3D4 version had a "TrafficBoardFrontEnd.exe" ....... P3D5 version does not seem to have a similar way to start the front end. I'm obviously missing something, .... my apologies if I appear a tad inept ..... usually manage to sort things out, but this has got me temporarily stumped. An
