Even during a US public holiday, PMDG’s CEO Robert Randazzo has issued a statement announcing that the 777-300ER Expansion Package has been upgraded to P3D V4!
Along with this announcement, he also announced that the 737 NGX is “more-or-less” finished saying: “we will have more information on it’s availability after the US holiday, today. (I just re-read that, and I know how some like to parse what I say… so… We will have more information for you after the US holiday- and the release will come shortly there-after…)”
With regards to the 777-300ER, he said: “A few moments ago we released the PMDG 777-300ER Expansion Package compatibility update to make it cooperate with Prepar3D v4. If you already own the 77W for Prepar3D v3, simply visit PMDG eCommerce and download a new copy of the installer.”
He also issued a recap for people saying: “We just completed a major modernization of our installation process, and as such we have rebuilt the installers for the PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II and the PMDG 777-200LR/F. We are using this rebuild as an opportunity to issue a global reset for all customers, and for that reason, on 01JUL17 we advised that everyone uninstall whatever version of these products that they had installed, and download and install the most current versions.”
Does this apply to you?: Run the PMDG Operations Center, select your product, and check the version number. If it tells you that you don’t have the most current version number, then yes- you should do this update.
Is it urgent?: No. Do it whenever suits you. Over the next couple of weeks we will begin issuing micro-updates for all of our products- and the micro-updater will tell you need to download a full installation if you haven’t gotten to the required version.
I’m confused!: Don’t sweat it. Whenever it is convenient for you- run the Operations Center. Click on your product, click the VERSIONS button and if you need an update it’ll tell you. Don’t overthink it!
Should I uninstall First?: Yes. Uninstall your PMDG product, download a new copy, then reinstall.
Do I need to do anything with my license?: Not unless the software asks you to do something…
