I have on order the PMDG 737NG suite for FS2004 which I understand allows FMC programming. I will let you know what it is like when I have had a 'play'.

When or if you do the typerating course, the FMC part is deadeasy. As long as you're not 55 years old, this is a very simple input device to get the aircraft to do what you want....like LNAV and VNAV guidance. You'll use almost 80% of it's capabilities on every setup so you will very quickly be quite good at it. It's a very basic data tool.

And even if you are 55 plus it's a very simple input device.......

So far so good,. BC - installed ok (XP) and runs on FS2004. The only thing you cannot access is the INS but there is talk of an update for that. It seems so far to cover all the functions and claims to be up to 10-.4panel. Once you have loaded the route you can fly Lnav/Vnav with it.

Will report further.
