FMS data manager not finding PMDG addons (P3dv5)

Hello all,

I am new to this program, so I hope this isn’t a stupid post, but I have FSLabs A320 and it is working great, updated via the FMS without issue.

However, I installed the PMDG fleet recently, and none of them are being found by the data manager, only the airbus is showing up

Am I missing a step to get them to appear for updates?


Hi Joseph,


Lets start afresh.

Please disable any Antivirus and firewall.

Please use Windows to uninstall FMS Data Manager. Specifically use FAQ - Charts desktop installer fails immediately

If they exist, please delete folders:
c:\ProgramData\Navigraph\FMSClient and c:\Program Files (x86)\Navigraph\FMS Data Manager.

Please download and install latest FMS Data Manager .

If still an issue, please post screenshots of Settings tab showing P3D v5 path and Addon Mappings tab showing PMDG paths. If still no joy you may need to add PMDG manually there.

Please let us know how you get on.


Hi Ian,

Just to let you know, the reinstall worked and the scanner picked up the PMDG after I followed your steps.

Thank you very much for the help, it is very much appreciated


Hi Joseph,

You are welcome. Thank you for the feedback.

Happy flying.
