Spent 125 dollars today on the PMDG 777 for Prepar3D

Installed into Windows 7-64.

Started Prepar3D and was expecting for it to ask for my code. The only thing that happened was the following:

No gear,

Blank panel.

Had lots of engine noise, was able to take off with no flaps.

Landed and of course it wrecked since I did not show and gear.

Does anyone know why it would be running in restricted mode and will not let me put my code?

this is an update to my PMDG 777 problem

I contacted PMDG as instructed yesterday morning and got a reply. I was surprised as it is Saturday.

I quote:


This issue is probably caused by an incorrect SimConnect runtime installation on your computer, follow these instructions to fix it:

1. Navigate to this folder :


    <P3D root folder>\redist\FSX-RTM\lib


2. Run the SimConnect.msi installer file inside the folder.


3. Repeat the process in the FSX-SP1\lib and the FSX-SP2-Xpack\lib folders.


   After doing this I was able to inter my code and fly that big bird. Take off was great and it was a good thing I wrote this before the landing since there were was a controlled crash.

The PMDG 737NGX installer does not ask for an authentication code. That is only requested when you select the aircraft from the Vehicles Menu. I assume it would be the same for the 777.

That is correct.
