You must use CDU Server in order to use cdu device pro.
If you have trouble to run the server program, you need to install Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 C++ redistributable package.

This is the sample image that 737 products must upgraded first.
- Check the message that the mobile device connected to your computer.
- Check the server UI that client connected properly
At the right buttom listbox, current connected client ip address is shown.
And The right top side 'network adapters' listbox, you can see data transfer with tiny animation.
But this status does not mean you can use the CDU.
Just launch your flight simulator and load your flight with PMDG products.
- Check the flight simulation connected
You can see 'Have a nice flight!!!' message when you launch your flight simulation.
After this, just click plane figure and then you can see the CDU page.

3. Trouble Shooting
3.1 Cannot get any data from the cdu server
If you launch the CDU Server 1.5ex and the mobile device didn't get any data from the cdu server, check below items.
- Make sure you turn on your mobile device's wi-fi
- Make sure you connected same router that used by the computer
3.2 Mobile device get data from the CDU Server but CDU Server cannot get any data from the client (client list not show any mobile device address)
It's probably the CDU Server 1.5 is in the block list of the windows firewall
open up 'Control Panel' and type 'firewall' from the search edit box.
Select 'Windows Firewall' from the list.
On the left side, there will be 'Allow app or feature through the Windows firewall' or something like that.
At the new window, search CDU Server program from the list and if you found it, delete it or unblock the program.
Relaunch the CDU Server and you can see the mobile device's ip and port.
3.3 Mobile device display broken data or button works but blank cdu display.
This caused by duplicated sdk section in your ini file.
There is probably two [sdk] section in your file.
In this case, delete upper line then restart your fight simulator.
It will fix your problem.
EnableDataBroadcast means PMDG will allow export data.
EnableCDUBroadcast means PMDG will allow export CDU display.
3.4 Connection ok but blank CDU (another case)
If you use illegal copy of pmdg products, it may not work properly.
Especially 737 NGX.
I'll update this trouble shooting from time to time.
