Hi Manuel,

The P3D SDK comes with a GUID generator that will generate as many GUIDs as you just need to identify how many you need, and then save the text file, which will contain the generated GUIDs.

The tool can be found in the directory where the SDK was installed and is called "GUIDGenerator." I hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
