Hi all,

We are happy to announce that the iFly 747-400 V2.2.0.0 is now Prepar3D v4 (64-bit) compatible.

Prior to download and installation, please read all of these instructions and ensure that you follow each step.

A.  Preparing your computer for file download and installation

1. Turn off Anti Virus Software. 

2. Turn off Windows Defender. 

3.  Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 or higher users, set UAC (user account control) to the lowest level and leave it there.

NOTE:  UAC in Windows 8, 8.1 or 10 requires special attention.  Please see this post:  http://ifly.flight1.net/forums/windows-user-access-control_topic13412.html 

4. Do not download using Google Chrome, which is known to corrupt files.

5. Install Flight1's Download Manager if you want a hassle-free download: 

http://www.flight1.com/F1Download.zip.  It will help prevent corruption of the download.

6.  Permanently exclude the entire P3Dv4 folder from antivirus scans.

B.  Installation:

1. Vista, Win7, Win8, and Win10 users must run the Flight 1 wrapper (the installer) as Administrator. (Right click the executable file and select the option to "Run as administrator")

2. It is very important to not install P3Dv4, or any add-on product, in a "windows protected area" such as

\Program Files
\Program Files (x86)
\Program Data

We suggest installing in C:\*.* (replace *.* with your folder name of choice) or if available on a separate drive for overall performance improvements. SSD is highly recommended for improved loading times.

3. If you are a new customer proceed with the purchase and installation process using the downloaded Flight1 P3Dv4 iFly-747-400 E-Commerce wrapper.

4. If you are an existing Flight1 P3D v3 iFly-747-400 customer, you can use the original key and password you received on purchase for the Reinstallation “Click Here to Reinstall” option on the E-Commerce wrapper to extract and install the aircraft.

5. If you need your order number, a replacement key, to reactivate your key due to too many installations or any other support issue, then head over to Flight1 support and use the automated self-help system here:

Flight1.com E-Commerce Software Wrapper and Product Activation Support:

6.  Be certain to run the module installer from the popup which displays at the end after the iFly 747-400v2 installer completes installation of the aircraft files. This is to make the required DLL.xml entry.

7. Reboot the pc.

C.  After installation:

1. IMPORTANT NOTE:  Prior to starting P3Dv4, it is a requirement to run the iFly Configuration Tool always "As Administrator" to properly configure the aircraft, load passengers, fuel and cargo.  See the Tutorial which installs with the aircraft to learn how to configure and load the aircraft.  The iFly Configuration Tool must be run without P3Dv4 loaded prior to every flight.

2.  If you experience any graphics anomalies, please delete the P3Dv4 shader cache files located in “Local Disk\users\YOURNAMEHERE\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepa3D v4\Shaders”.  Prepar3D will rebuild the shader cache when it is next loaded.

3.  If you are a new user unfamiliar with the operation of iFly 747-400v2 systems, please spend time with the tutorial and tutorial supplement which install with the aircraft.

4. To use FSGRW for Wind Request data, users must have a version which is P3Dv4 compatible:  http://www.fly2pilots.com/FSGRW

5. To use ASP4 for Wind Request data, users must have the version which is P3Dv4 compatible:  http://www.hifisimtech.com

It is of utmost importance that you always have the latest version (registered or unregistered) of FSUIPC installed to avoid any issue! 

The latest version can always be downloaded here:

Download the full Flight1 E-Commerce install Wrapper for the iFly 747-400v2 for Prepar3D v4 from the product page here:

Happy iFlying!
