Software Disconnects (Resolved)

Post by signmanbob »

I have the Pro-CDU and have used it in FSX with the PMDG NGX, but the CDU controller software seems to disconnect on its own, when I'm using the NGX.
When it disconnects from my CDU, I will have to go into the Task Manager and "End Process" on the CDU Controller Software and restart it again (I can't exit from the software), to get it working.
Sometimes, if I just change views, it will disconnect from my Pro-CDU and nothing will work.

Another question:
I'm not flying FSX anymore very much. I have P3Dv.3.1 installed and I really like it much better than FSX.
Does the "CDU Controller" software and PMDG NGX connection software work with the PMDG NGX in P3Dv.3.1?

The new FDS-PMDGController works with all FS platforms (FSX/FSX SE/P3D and XP).

Check that you have the Power Management is unchecked in the Device Manager under USB's.

Power Options set to "Never" for Harddrive and Display settings.

It looks I have a simliar problem with my CDU.
I have it working with PMDG 737 and 777.

The CDU stops working and I have to use the taskmanager to end the FDS process and then I can restart.
In my case that happens only while preparing my aircraft for the flight when standing at the gate. In most cases it is while changing the time or airfield in FSX or starting FSInn. Maybe some sort of timeout?
I can fly hours and hours with my T7 and the CDU is working all the time.

Disregard last message. It was with the older software.
With the new FDS-PMDGController I don´t have that problem yet.

Thanks, for the new software. :)

Ok, to early happiness.
Same as with the older software. The only way to kill the process is the taskmanager.
I see a "SysController.log" file, but it is empty.
A log could maybe help to resolve the problem.
