Blank CRTs on all 737 aircraft


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

using for years the PMDGs 737NG with 6/700 and 8/900 types installed a weird issue was coming up:

after starting a flight with one of the PMDG 737 all CRTs (PFD, ND and EICAS) as well as the switching and operational sound of BATTERY MASTER and STANDBY POWER have gone.

Reinstalling all PMDG stuff did not the trick.

Following the official PMDG procedure for this issue does only the half way:

Blank CRTs with overhead panel problems on all 737 aircraft

This is caused by corruption of the FSUIPC files and can be corrected as follows:

Go to the Flight Simulator 9/Modules folder and delete the FSUIPC.dll, FSUIPC.txt, FSUIPC.cfg and FSUIPC.key files.

Go to Peter Dowsons website and download the latest version of FSUIPC.

Place the FSUIPC.dll file in the Flight Simulator 9/Modules folder and fire up Fs9 and the problem should be solved.

After updating from FSUIPC 3.96 to 3.98 and re-inserting all other old files (*.ini, *.key) into the \modules folder the problem re-appeared.

having it tracked down it shows up the key-file is the cause:

- no key file, old ini file in place: all fine

- generating a new valid key file manually: problem re-appeared

- generating a new un-valid key file manually: problem re-appeared

- leaving the key file almost blank with "fantasy" characters ("X"): all fine

Can you, Pete or anyone else help?

Thanks a lot!

Alex

Either your key (or name/email detail) is invalid, or more likely the date on your PC has reset and is now earlier than your key purchase, making it look invalid.
