E-Jets FMS Unable to load/edit flightplans


Recommended Posts

First, Total Noob. Please forgive my ignorance.


Where I stand: I have a flight plan loaded in FSX (acceleration boxed), I have disabled any virus detection, Win10. Current AIRAC supplied by Navigraph.

 I follow instructions for the FMS from page 46 of the included manual. I Complete 'Position Initialization'. I have 'loaded' displayed above my selection.

*Next step is 'entering flight plan', The first error is there is no ICAO code displayed. From this point on I am unable to complete anything other than config the acft loads. I am unable to either create a route from scratch or load the current FSX flight plan.


 What basic steps am I missing? Thanks for any answers and your welcome if you got as laugh from this note.

I did run sfc.exe /scannow with no errors. The erj.log shows errors for ODBC

driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};dbq=D:\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\FeelThere\Nd\nd.mdb

I verified nd.mdb was not in the stated location.

What version are you calling? MDAC 2.8 stopped being supported a long time ago, I believe Win2003 Server/XP, although it could be wedged into Win7. Note: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms810805.aspx

Can you be more specific on your program's needs? Any other ideas would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Ok, here is what was going on.

 The Jets populated a directory called Nd, but didn't put any AIRAC data in it (hence can't find file) There was a locking file nd.ldb that seemd to prevent DIRECT download from Navigraph to the directory the jets were looking for info.  Deleting that file and having Navigraph send it to a subdirectory THEN manually coppying it to Nd solved my initial problem.

 This never was a MDAC issue, but at least it taught me to look for a log file.
