FAQ: How to use vroute-generated plans in Wilco 737 Print
The following tutorial prepared by Serge Villez-Mognier from Cyberavia and kindly made available to us. It shows how to use flight plans generated from vroute in Wilco 737 aircraft.

 Use vroute's export feature to create file in Wilco 737 format. In this example for the flight LFPGLFML:

Save   "LFPGLFML.U10" .fpl  into "Microsoft Flight Simulator X\feelThere\CustomDB"
Image
 
Now it is finished for VRoute and begines the job in Wilco 737-300.
Startup and run IRS

As long as you have this picture you cannot see your flightplan (on this picture you have to wait still 2': in real life 30' during which  you must not move the plane). But you can begin to enter you flightplan even if you don't see it yet
 
2 Enter the flightplan in the FMC - click on POS
Image
 
If you are in LFPG Enter LFPG in L2 POS. Your position appears on the screen
Copy your position R2 and paste it in R4. If you dont do this you'll never enter your flightplan because the FMC does't know where he is
Image

and sudenly you see you glasscockpit lighted and your IRS shows your heading
Image

Hit R6 Route or hit Rte
Image
 
Type LFPGLFML and copy it in R2 CO ROUTE
Image

You don't need to hit save as your plan is already saved. Use this only when you enter your plan manualy
Then click on ACTIVATE then EXEC and your FMC is set
Image
 
Image

You now enter your departure runway, call the ATC ans ask for a coffee for me
