Panel instrument lights and P3D v3

Post by francesco.doenz » Sun Dec 20, 2015 2:56 pm

I cant get the interior lights working, I guess it's still the same problem which has been adressed one year ago in other posts? Or is it my fault? BTW, I have the same problem with the F-4E!?

Did you disable your AV before downloading and installing the products?

Are you running the correct Direct X installer?

Are you running P3D as an admin?

Are you using the latest version of P3D (only V3 will be supported)

Are running the Estonia migration tool? (if you ever did, you must turn it OFF while using our products)

Are you running windows 8 or windows 10? (these are unsupported OS')

Thank you as always for your excellent support and your instructive check list!
Yes AV disabled, NEVER enabled!
Never messed with direct x installers...suppose I have the last version.
Yes running P3D as an admininstrator
Yes, latest version of P3D
Yes, was running Estonian tool, disbled it but without result. I suppose I installed the F4 and T38 with the tool running...
Yes Running windows seven!

Consequently I will uninstall both birds with the uninstaller of windows and reinstall them taking care to NOT run the estonian tool!!

Question: Do I just reinstall the last updates of both birds or do I have to start with the previous versions?

A many thanks in advance!

Please also ensure that you have the appropriate SimConnect libraries installed by running the SimConnect.msi found in your P3D\redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib

Run the installer. There's a check mark.

The Estonia tool must not be running at all and Jon is probably right as to the fix.

Thanks once more!
Uninstalled and reinstalled the T38, but the interior lights still do not work! Don't worry, both birds are fantastic anyway and function perfectly, it's just a minor annoyance and I am apparently alone with the problem, so it will most likely go away with the next an update of P3D!

I chcked everything except the direct x, being the only one with this problem the root of this small inconvenience is within my system, I will check the direct x, but as already stated I never messed with it!
Thanks for everything!

I have the same problem that Franscesco explains, in the T-38A and F-4E (not in models F-4J/S), interior cockipt lights doesn't work.

Yes, when I click on the instrument light knob, for example, in F4-J/S works fine, but it happens nothing in T-38A or F-4E

Confirm that you have an MV NL.exe file (slightly different name for the F-4E but same start/ending) in the texture folder?
