'NG FMC and more" not recognized

 I have just purchased the 'NG FMC and more" update for my PSX and put the downloaded zip file into the extra directory folder but when I start the simulator it is not recognized. I have 10.172 installed. In the Instructor the 'NG FMC installed' check is grey/greened out. Also in the About tab I have 'Extra licenses installed' as None which is also greyed out. Could you please help a rather confused 81yo?
Kind regards
Richard

There should be no zip file in Extra. The correct file Name is

NextGenFmc.license

This is what I did as per the manual 'Download the file NextGenFmc.license from your retailer's online shop.
Do not unzip the file'. seeing I did not unzip it that is what I did. The file is called NextGenFmc.license.
Seeing I did not unzip it I call it a zip file

I reinstalled from the original PSX DVD then installed the latest update 10.172.
Maybe that was wrong or something?

Did you restart PSX thereafter? (You should.)

Sorry for my short words. Typing on mobile phone ...

rgsnnibs

Yes I did. Installed PSX, started and stopped it then installed the latest update started/stopped it then put the NextGenFmc.license into the extras folder.

Also please check file size of licence file

If incorrect, please redownload from retailer.

The file is 284kb. I downloaded it again because I thought the file may have been corrupt. So I have only one download left.

Is the license file really in Extra? No typo? No duplicates etc.?

rgsnnibs

Yes it is OK. Aerowinx/Extra/NextGenFmc.license

Hardy Heinlin

What is in your
Aerowinx/Logs/errors.txt
?

rgsnnibs

in errors is says [Aerowinx Precision Simulator - Exceptions] only
plus track.plot 3kb

Hardy Heinlin

Do you have multiple Aerowinx folders on your computer?

Do you start PSX with a shortcut?

How do you start PSX?

rgsnnibs

Do you have multiple Aerowinx folders on your computer? No

Do you start PSX with a shortcut? Yes

How do you start PSX? From my desktop shortcut

Hardy Heinlin

Please test this: Double-click AerowinxStart.jar in your Aerowinx folder.

I still get 'Extra licenses installed' as None

Hi,

as the file is from an external download: perhaps you need to allow your system to access the file!

Right click it and select properties. Check the first tab if you see a little checkbox - like on my (german) screenshot.



Tick the box, restart PSX, and recheck if working!

Hardy:
I've different size as you mentioned, but working flawless - just 4 Ur info!

Best regards
Hans

Hardy Heinlin

Good tip, Hans.

Richard, do you have this file?
Aerowinx/Visuals/cdu_1c.jpg ?

rgsnnibs

Yes I have but it is cdu1c without the dash. I put the dash in but still no good.

In NextGenFmc.license properties it says Opens with Windows Explorer it that OK?
