Microsoft are blocking downloads

Microsoft are blocking me from downloading and running Condor update 218. Apparently it is not a file commonly used and I am to be sure that I trust it. I have notified them via the page which allows this but still not possible to achieve download and run the exe. Suggestions please to solve this.

LOGON to CONDOR CLUB

I recently had to change my email address as it was hacked. I now am unable to reset my ID on Condor Club and, seemingly, must continue to use my old email on this site. Could someone please enlighten me as to how, because I am not finding any solution. Thanks and Happy New Year to all!!

Re: error creating Direct 3D 11 framework

The cause of this , on my machine, can be found on my post "PDA not working".
Moral: check your antivirus software isn't interfering with your downloads!

Re: PDA not working

I have traced this problem to Bullguard, the Antivirus software installed on this machine. It interfears with the downloads from Condor updater allowing some of the update through but not all. It quarantines the software but won't release it. 2.1.6 was partially blocked even though Condor2 was showi...

Re: PDA not working

I was hoping not to have to do this It has only just gone wrong and I have no notion what has caused it. My computer spec includes Direct X 12 so what is causing the problem with planeviewer I have no idea. I shall move my logbook, tracks and scenery files and do a new install.

error creating Direct 3D 11 framework

I am getting an error box opening, when I click on freeflight, with the following message
Error. Creating DIRECT3D 11 framework for Planeviewer. Check Setup in Graphics.
I haven't changed anything so don't know what has happened.

Re: PDA not working

In the NOTAM setup PDA is enabled. It is not, however, displaying ( only a grey screen) in the cockpit. It does "click" when moving between screens - even though nothing shows. Suggestions appreciated.

catch a wave

I'm having a go at Gold badge on Jura. However, finding wave is proving elusive. I have climbed to cloudbase on various thermals and enjoyed flying the ridges but cannot see how to find and then establish in wave. This does seem to be a requirement to be able to get past tp3, I know that wave should...

Re: silver badge distance on Jura sildist.ftr

Thank you to the various people who have helped. I feel that the use of "J" for turning the helpers on could be made more explicit in the briefing notes for this task. However, nice to have achieved Silver C virtual.

Re: silver badge distance on Jura sildist.ftr

Re: silver badge distance on Jura sildist.ftr

OK looked at tutorial on Vimeo and still have questions. There is no PDA on display in the K8 when attempting a Silver badge flight so no need to disable it. Where are these marker poles to photograph on the start or at any turnpoints? Do they have to be turned on? if so, where?

Re: silver badge distance on Jura sildist.ftr

Took photographs of start area. I do not see any sort of marker. There is no message acknowledging start. Also photographed destination airfield whilst on downwind leg. Consequently, again, I have not completed the task!!! Do these photographs embed in the .ftr file? If not, how is proof of flight v...

silver badge distance on Jura sildist.ftr

I have submitted this but had it rejected. Can I ask why? I flew to the target airfield having not stopped anywhere. Your software shows I did not start the task. How?What is a regatta start? On being waved off by the tug I did a circle within the start area and climbed a thousand feet or so in that...
