    Flight plan import Efb2

    In the manual titled 'Flightplan' there are instructions for how to do this. See image below

    Cannot use trial

    I had similar issues but I have persevered. Make sure you are starting in Administrator mode (sure you are but just in case). My trial expires in a couple of days and I intend to purchase. I too have the freeware software you are suggesting as an alternative and find EFB grows on you. the 'time server' issues are not issues with the full license but I can understand you wanting to have a good look. I did for sure.

    Flightplan Creation

    The first image shows the cursor position after pressing the Select .... button for the Destination Airport The next image shows what happens if I type the destination ICAO without first deleting NZWN. I would have thought the ICAO code box should be cleared each time it is recalled. Sorry for the confusion. It was late when I noticed the error and it had been a looooong day. Andy b
  4. On the FPL Create Flightplan screen when after entering the Origin ICAO details the airport is displayed and pressing Select transfers the information to the display. Upon pressing the Select ... button to identify the Destination airport the ICAO data from the origin airport is still displayed and needs to be manually removed. I would expect that the ICAO box is cleared automatically when the Select .... button is pressed. Is this a reasonable expectation?

    Access is Denied

    Make sure you have Run this program as an administrator checked for both server and client as shown above.

    Latest Server update broke EFB

    Mine was the opposite. I got the client update and then accidentally passed over the server update. When it didn't work I shutdown the server and restarted and still no connection to the client. I tried the update the server through the tab on the server and it told me I had the latest version which I knew to be wrong. So I uninstalled and installed a re-downloaded upgrade version of the server.

  8. If people really want to keep it alive without paying they will find one. Hacks will appear online eventually. Just a matter of time (not limited by an online time server).
  9. Despite my intentions to stay logged in somebody who shall remain nameless and will be unlikely to read this thought I had left the computer switched on by accident and generously logged out on my behalf. Haven't been able to get back in since so I will sit back until after my upcoming vacation and think about my next step when I return.
  10. Thanks for your comments Urs. I apologise for my harsh words but I have really been frustrated by this issue. I have it running now and I think I may leave the computer running until the next power failure, an unfortunate and all too frequent problem at this time of the year where I live due to high winds and exposed terrain.
  11. Appreciate your comment and from what I have read already buying it will resolve the issue. However, that doesn't solve the issue as to why this occurs. There are many other applications with a 'try before you buy' offer and they seem to manage the countdown without this amount of fiddling around. I am a v1 user and when I get the software to operate - 6 fails last evening - it is quite stable and looks good but that is not the point. It should work as advertised in Demo mode and it doesn't so either I have done something wrong in the setup or there is something wrong with the coding. The fact it works eventually, after much cursing, suggests to me that my setup is OK and that leaves the other option. Disappointing that Urs is nowhere to be seen on this issue. At the present rate of progress my DEMO time will expire and if I'm not happy, and there could be any number of reasons for that, then I won't be a purchaser.
  12. I am using the Demo mode of EFBv2 I have configured a rule for Outgoing Traffic through Port 13. Whenever EFBv2 is started the pop-up appears on the screen indicated the License is being verified followed by a further message that TCP Port 13 must be open. I click OK and am presented with a Screen telling me to install DEMO. I dismiss this screen and try again and more likely than not once more the same path is repeated. The most tries to date is five before I am able to progress to the server actually loading. This is frustrating the heck out of me. What more can I do other than buy the full license which I don't want to do without being able to fully utilise the DEMO? Thanks Andy b

    Hey Ray - long time since the days of Radar Contact . Hope you are well too. Good comment re - FSUIPC. I think that may be something I did with an earlier version or the weather or something. must look into it once more. Thanks for the pointer/reminder. My simming has taken a back seat of recent times due to numerous visits to Europe since I retired six years ago - almost annually for one reason or another. Getting back into it now and looking at ways to dispense with the keyboard and mouse or at least send them into semi-retirement.

    I thought I did have the Server starting as Administrator but it turns out the Icon pinned to the taskbar was not whilst the shortcut on the Desktop had been changed but obviously after I copied it to the taskbar. The message which had the word 'boolean' in it did not get in the way today but I still need two (at least) shots to get to the point where the program tells me how many days are left of the trial mode. Regardless the main issue is resolved so I can now get on with checking out EFB2 which looks very good thus far. Thanks

    Is it mandatory to start EFB before P3D or is the error box I keep getting when starting after P3D a bug?
