California Propliners L1049G Constellation

I have just recently downloaded the Propliners L1049G TWA Constellation and have two problems. After takeoff and climbing to 2500 feet and leveling off I make a turn to approach an ILS airport namely PHNL rwy 04R. As I approach Rwy 04R and having set the LOC and centered on the runway I drop my speed to 150 knots and then press the F7 key to bring the flaps to the first position. However, the flaps will not come down at all regardless of the approach speed being higher or lower. Also when I press the G key to drop the wheels they come down normally. If I press the G key again they refuse to come up. Anyone with any ideas on how to correct this.

The problem has been solved. During the upgrade of the L1049g the software did not overwite the flap settings in the aircraft.cfg file like it should have hence the Flap 0 was repeated twice so that when FSX was running and the first position of the flaps was required, the system looked at the first flap settings, tried to set the flaps but then placed the flaps back to the flaps up position when it read the second Flap 0 listings thus preventing the flaps from ever being deployed.
