Re: P3D starts automatically

This is a Windows 10 "feature".
If a process is running when you shut down, Windows starts it automatically.
Solution is to wait a while after closing P3D before shutting down.

Hi John,

Can you right-click on the installer file you are trying to use, select properties, select the Details tab and post the information here please?

Re: Re - installing P3D

You are correct Jorgen - only the full installer file needs to be extracted:

Do not extract any of the CAB files! The installer program will do that automatically :-)

Re: Re - installing P3D

Hi Jayteeaitch,

I don't work for Lockheed Martin but I will try to help :-)

May I ask which program you are using to unzip the download file?

I tend to use 7-Zip (www.7-zip.org) as I have experienced checksum errors when using the built-in Windows zip facility.

Cheers,

Dave.

Re: ATC runway selection

Hi Snowfalcon, I use a program called Pro-ATC/X which reads weather from Active Sky (other weather products are supported). Pro-ATC/X clearance delivery will calculate the appropriate runways, SIDs and STARs based on the weather. Unfortunately, P3D default traffic is not so reliable and I often find...

Re: Missing Airports In P3DV4

Hi Reza,

P3D is based on the FSX database so these airports are probably not included.
You would need to install a 3rd party scenery.
I was very disappointed when I found this out.
And most of the missions are missing.
And no airliners...

Re: flight simulator 2020

I don't work for Lockheed Martin, but most companies tend not to discuss internal strategy with random internet strangers.
In the meantime, I'm enjoying Prepar3D - live in the moment I say...

Platform Detection - Automatically Suggest a Configuration Profle

Hi, Please could LM consider an auto configuration module in P3D. It would detect the platform hardware (CPU, RAM, GPU etc) and software (Add-ons etc) and automatically work out the optimum settings. The module would then suggest a configuration profile to apply from a number of pre-set configuratio...

Re: Is it okay now to install V4.5

What are the serious performance & stability issues?
4.5 is running great for me, if anything I'm getting better performance.

Re: Ghost ATC conversation on ATIS frequencies

Active Sky can generate an ATIS broadcast. Is it maybe coming from there?

Re: after upgrading to 4.5 from 4.4

Hi Wombat, There are so many possible combinations of add-ons and configurations that it is difficult for anyone to say with certainty that a clean install is a good idea. Also, some add-ons don't completely clean up during an uninstall and can leave configuration settings lying around in the regist...

Re: V4.5 fix update ???

4.5 working great here with no issues!
I always do a full wipe/reinstall of Windows, P3D and add-ons after each point release.
Otherwise, I run into problems.
