    Why do I need to type in FREEZE now?

    Also, the list of machines provides a list of dates. Oldest is probably safest.

    Can’t update x-aviation licences

    What language is your computer setup for? Have you tried removing other plugins to rule out one of them hogging the a key event inside xplane? If you have continued trouble we'll need a copy of your Log.txt file from the xplane folder.

    Can’t update x-aviation licences

    Try using copy and paste from notepad into the xplane gui fields...
  4. This is fixed in the next update.

    Locked the wrong machine

    1. The name and date of registration for the machine are provided as a reference. If in doubt, it's probably safest to choose the oldest machine in the list. 2. Occasionally Windows Update will cause the same hardware to be seen as a new machine, see point 1 re: dates. 3. Generally multiple installs of X-Plane on the same system are seen as the same Hardware-ID. With those three rules in mind you should be perfectly safe to have another copy of your products on the same hardware.

    Activation problem

    Software that is licensed to use is not the exception, it is the default. It is everywhere. It would be difficult to find an exception. You didn't just give your friend an installer or a disc/memory stick. You furnished them with the username and password that grants them access to what you self describe as being a large number of purchases from X-Aviation over the years. Playing the naive card and the VP of engineering card at the same time doesn't serve you well either. You should know better on all counts. Cameron is the only one who can help you with licensing issues. He has access to all the customer and purchase records. I just build widgets.

    SkyMAXX installer crash

    If your virus scanner is causing a kernel panic I'd get a refund on it. That's a seriously shoddy bug.

    projectFLY user? I have a plugin update for you..

    If you're not having any issues with the official plugin you don't need this one. I don't keep track of where they're at. I fixed a problem we were having in September 2018.

    Fail to Update v1.1.9

    Two people helping isn't no one. Just because you don't like the answers or that it takes time to figure out doesn't mean you have to be rude.

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    Some time between now and the heat death of the universe.

    Fail to Update v1.1.9

    Your anti virus is blocking gizmo from contacting the license server via http.

    Error code

    Does anything different happen if you use the Saab scroll wheel manipulator -before- you attempt to use the RXP product? The error message is indicative of state-desynch inside the Saab code. I'm wondering if using the manip at least once will put it into a safer state.

    Violation of "basic rules"

    World Peace with xEnviro 1.1 ... if it's ever released. Try turning off the IXEG vortices in the IXEG graphics preferences. It's officially not the fault of Gizmo or xE... it was some weird bug that has been resolved that will probably go away if xE 1.1 ever ships. (I have a Direct Message from Andrey Sheyback, developer of xE - stating the above. Blame has been thrown around from one party to the other for literally years now. They have it resolved, but I can't release their products for them so we're all stuck in this boat together.)

    It's probably your anti virus software.
