I have a problem with downloading the PACOT-Tracks. Downloading the NAT-Tracks is working fine however.

First some details:

1. I'm using FS2004.

2. FSCommander version 8.4 Build 110908.

3. I'm using the download version.

4. My operating system is Windows XP.

5. I'm using Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.11

What I do is I select "Download PACOT Track" from the "Tracks" menu. This brings me to the following page: https://www.notams.jcs.mil/dinsQueryWeb/

On this page I select Pacific Tracks. This brings me to the page: https://www.notams.jcs.mil/dinsQueryWebpAction.do

Then I save the entire page using the default name: "Defense Internet NOTAM Service" in the FSC\Database folder. In the second drop down box that says "Save As", I choose "Webpage, complete" (in my browser this is translated into Dutch). Whenever I try to display the tracks in FSCommander, I get the error message: "Error reading in Pacot file! Download the file again!".

I have no idea what I'm doing wrong here.

Thanks, that did the trick. It's working now.

I also discovered that saving the webpage with the PACOT-Tracks works best when FSCommander is closed. Because if you try to do this while FSCommander is running, the program locks up sometimes (this doesn't happen when downlading the NAT-Tracks).
