TOPER Airac Generator Utility

Recommended Posts

Generate AIRAC database for TOPER using Navigraph-PSS

  1. Download the utility (v1.0.0)
  2. Install PSS Navigraph to a temporary directory, or use existing PSS installation. 
  3. Make sure that the utility (.exe) file is in the same folder as NavData directory, for example:

    C:\PSS\toper-db-updater.exe
    C:\PSS\NavData\...

  4. Two files will be generated: airports_10.dat and runways_10.dat . Please move these files to the main TOPER installation directory overwriting previous versions.

For all like me who did not understand, download the PSS Navigraph data here

https://www.navigraph.com/FmsDataManualInstall.aspx

Then install to a drive you like e.g.G:\Program Files (x86)

You'll get a PSS directory there. Put toper-db-updater.exe into this directory and run it. Copy the runways_10.dat and airports_10.dat to the Toper Calculator Tool directory and overwrite the older ones. That's it.

I still have airac 1901 .   I have tried this every which way possible and I am not seeing any PSS Directories created.    I guess

I am just not understanding something.    Anyone want to try to explain this to me again please ?  In C Drive/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Topcat 

I have these things:   Folders NavData and NAVData- Backup  -   Also bunch of numbers and letters .index file  -  cycle_info.txt  - Database.tdb

and lastly both the topcat_1913.zip and toper-db-updater.exe ..   On my E Drive , under my Toper Calculator Tool ,  i have these things:  737NG Folder - airports_10.data  - B737NG_activation.dat - ints_10.dat - runways_10.dat - TOPER_737NG.exe - TOPER_activation.exe  - toperLib.dll - unins000.dat and unins000.exe

PSS directories are created by the AIRAC installer.

Tried doing this however Toper still says Airac 1303. Both airports_10 and runways_10 are updated, but airports.dat still says the file is from 2013. Does this mean the airac cycle was not updated correctly?

Hello Nikola!

How can I update the AIRAC in TOPER to 2008.
My data is on disk F:
How can I get them into the toper-db-updater.

Press any key to quit.
F:\Toper CALCULATOR TOOL - B777 V3.0\NavData\cycle_info.txt
False

F:\FS_Games\AA_P3D-UpDate\Nav_Data\pmdg_2008

kind regards

Reinhold

Yes, if the AIRAC cycle still stays the same, this indicates failure of the DB generation.
Please try the procedure again and let me know if the problem persists.
Kind regards,
