    Re: Aerosoft MCP 747 email adress

    Hi Bill,

    Yes this will help me verify if the firmware is corrupted or not (if it will
    load).

    Thank you beforehand.

    Serge.

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you very much for the file. Yes it is the good one, but did not succeed
    to get the 747MCP working yet.
    Will continue to try.

    Regards,

    Hello Michel,

    Yes I was able to contact Andrew, Thanks for the address.

    I can eliminate the power supply now because I have some displays lit at the
    moment. I do not know why. The problem seems to be in the firmware but I
    need to know the serial number of the unit and I do not remember it.
    I got this mssg from Andrew

    1. Start->Run->"regedit"
    2. Navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Enum/USB/Vid_0403&Pid_fe90
    3. It should say MCP000xxx where xxx is the serial number e.g. MCP000193

    Let me know what number it says. You should probably do a firmware upload
    once you know the number.

    But I cannot find this link in my regedit, could you check it in yours if you
    have time and tell me if it matches ? Do you have a serial connection to
    the PC ?

    Thanks for your help.
    Groeten,
    Serge.

    Hi Serge,

    Great you have already contact.

    Yes, under the map Vid_0403&Pid_fe90 there is another map and this one is
    called MCPXXX
    I could see my serial there/

    Btw I don't know if this helps, but pressing simultationly the Speed and
    Altitude rotary set on and of the displays.

    Yes I'm now using now the serial connection, as the complete aerosoft suite

    is now using Enrico's drivers, so that I could benifit from the latests
    additions of his software ( separate qnh settings F/O etc)


    See you

    Michel

    Hi Michel,

    Thanks for the information. I made the USB connection to the 747MCP and then
    the link worked and was able to found my serial number finally, and so was
    able to reload the firmware. The unit is now working again.

    What do you mean with 'the serial connection use the new Enrico's drivers' ?
    Did you do something special for that ?

    Regards,
    Serge.

    Re: Aerosoft MCP 747 email adress

    Hello Serge,
    Well from the beginning I used the Aerosoft MCP747 also as an interface for

    the rest of my cockpitfunctions by using the expansionboards and the
    joystick ports.
    Therefore I had to use the Aerosoftdriver software which was also usb
    connected.
    But as this software was programmed long before the extention of a lot of
    functions for the B744 glareshield (EFIS-L,MCP, EICAS,EFIS-L) by Magenta, I

    wasn't able to have full use of them. For exemple the possibility to enter
    undependent the QNH settings in Capt or F/O displays.

    In order to use this functions, I had to change the complete cockpit
    interface to phidgets except for the glareshield.
    The complete Aerosoft B744 MCP Suite is now conneced via a serial
    connections and PM MCP software has its special aerosoft driver set to on.
    (That driver doesn't have expansionboards or joystick support)

    Now all functions are available as they are available today in the PM MCP.

    Ciao

    Michel

    Hello Michel,

    Thank you for your explanation. I did not use the USB connection and used the
    serial one right from the beginning, so in fact I used the PM MCP
    driver.

    This has make it clear for me.

    Regards,
    Serge.
