Frank, The extra options will not become active until you connect. Once connected, you should immediately squawk standby (unless you are in an aircarft where the transponder is linked to SB3, such as the PMDG 737NG, in which case it will be set to whatever your transponder is set to).

However, the transponder option is greyed out on my menu! Something awry here? Frank T.
