1900C

Starting with a fresh install of the 1900C into FS9 (no liveries):

1. Copy the following full folders (this assumes you are in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games or wherever you have your FS9 and FSX install folders)

Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\PMDG EXPRESS B1900C
Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\PMDG EXPRESS B1900C-Cargo
Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\PMDG EXPRESS B1900C-Freight

to

Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes

2. Copy the following files from the folder Flight Simulator 9\Effects

fx_beacon_pmdg_b1900.fx
fx_navgre_pmdg1900.fx
fx_navred_pmdg1900.fx
fx_pmdg_1900ccabin.fx
fx_pmdglogo1900.fx
fx_strobe_pmdg1900.fx

to

Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Effects

3. Copy these files from Flight Simulator 9\Gauges\

PMDG_B1900C.gau
Cessna208.gau

to

Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Gauges

4. Open up the aircraft.cfg file in each of the three PMDG EXPRESS B1900C folders within Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes

Find the [fltsim.0] and [fltsim.1] sections at the top of the file. Within each is a line that reads:

ui_manufacturer=Beechcraft-PMDG Express

Copy the three lines below and paste them over top of the above line in all three cfg’s, overwriting it.

ui_manufacturer=Beechcraft
ui_typerole="Twin Engine TurboProp"
ui_createdby="PMDG"

5. Start FSX and select one of the 1900C variants – the sim will give you a warning about unsigned gauges/modules – just click through it and tell it not to warn you again.
