hi to all
i am having a problem with my mcdu softwere i notic that some times when i am programming my flight if i chose a sid to fly i get an error saying

run time error 6

i get this only if i chose 1 sid it happens all the time if i select a diffrent sid (on the same runway)
it works fine
this has happend on another flight but onlly once

another problem i notice is that once i load the mcdu i go to the INT page to
load my flight data once i input dep/arr in the scrachpad i get a message using cost index 000
and it will not input the data dep/arr
i then put cost index in and then try again but automaticlly the cost index turn to 0
and the dep/arr disapears i have to do this 3 to 4 times and it finally inports my dep/app but cost index turns to 0 again

this might be a diffrent problem then the time error i am getting i am not shore has any one had these problems??

kind regards

Please check that You have latest updates. Then run pmfilecheck. That can be found for example in mcdu or fcu program folders. Make sure You have all pm related softwares and fs running. What does log say, any problems?
Dont worry about those messages down in mcdu, like nav accurr upgrad or cost index 000. Just follow normal routine and add those values by pressing all texts to mcdu. Some sids and stars might have errors. Report them to navigraph.
Also You may find it useful to contact Enrico about any problem You might have.
Happy flights!

You must put all files from navigraph (FMS data) to
.../mcdu/data folder. It will ask to overwrite so let it do it!
(make a backup before this)
I don't understand why You have to insert airports many times?
Just type for example eddf/eddv to scratch field and push highest
right side line select key.

newest updates work fine with me.
Are You sure You know how to operate
mcdu. Please check smartcockpit.com and
its manuals.
I think PM is having a summer vacation in June.
