  1. I don't mean to keep this post going but I just wanted to report my final update to my issue. I got my PC back from my tech guy today and all is well, I did not have to do a factory reset. What I did do was to uninstall the Windows Update KB4038788 restarted the PC, launched FSX-SE and went into the Load Flight... menu under FSUIPC in the ADD Ons - I DID NOT HAVE AN ISSUE. So for those experiencing crashes this may be the cause - if you copy and paste - Windows Update KB4038788 causing FSX crashes and P3D - into a Google search you will see that this is an issue for many people. That's all for my post... Regards, Dane.
  2. Regarding the above thread. My PC is in the tech shop as the technician is trying to resurrect it without me having to do a full factory reset. I have just finished reading three different threads that points to a recent Windows update which is causing FSX, FSX-SE, and P3D to crash - this could very well have been my problem?! Windows Update KB4038788 causing FSX crashes and P3D
  3. Thank you Pete, I will act on all this in a number of days as my computer is not happy. It decided to crash last night and will not restart it seems that I may have to do a complete factory reset and begin the extremely long and frustrating task of rebuilding and reinstalling everything from scratch, that is if I can remember everything - I am not a happy flier at this moment... Regards, Dane.
  4. Thomas, I installed FSUIPC4.971 but it did not solve the problem. I have done a great deal of elimination process and nothing seems to make a difference. What I have found is very strange but I can repeat the Microsoft crash every time - when I go to the ADD-ONS drop down and open the FSUIPC Loaf Flights... and then move my mouse up or down through the various saved flights, that is when it crashes. If I do not move my mouse in the saved flights area it does not crash - like I said I find this very strange. I am including another FSUIPC log as well as my FSUIPC ini file in case you want to have a look. FSUIPC4.ini FSUIPC4.log
  5. Thank you I will do that, then see
  6. FSUIPC4, Version 4.966c I have noticed that sometimes FSX-SE crashes the moment I go into the ADD-ONS Load Flight... when I have the Default Flight loaded. Other flights do not seem to cause this problem. I have attached my FSUIPC4.log for reference EDITED Just edited my info above as well as attaching this error message FSUIPC4.log
  7. Stuck in Profile Specific

    I have found my problem - please ignore my post. I found that I had conflicting (duplicated) aircraft names. Once I edited the names all was OK. One does learn a lot during these moments of trying to figure things out...
  8. Not sure if I have done something wrong, but it seems pretty simple to setup Profile Specific and add aircraft to it. However I must be doing something wrong as FSUIPC is stuck in Profile Specific mode. I had created a Helicopter Profile Specific and added two different helicopters into that profile and all works great. Then I loaded a new flight of a standard fixed wing aircraft to fly but FSUIPC did not recognize the fact that the aircraft loaded was not one of the helicopters and I did not see a way to turn off the Profile Specific check mark as it was greyed out, so I had to go into the FSUIPC4.ini file and change Use Profile=Yes to No, then restart FSX-SE and actually had to reconfigure a setting. Looking for help on this matter as I would like to keep using the profile specific feature. I have attached my FSUIPC4.log file
  9. P3D v4 - FSUIPC5

    Thank you DaveG I appreciate your reply.
  10. I searched the forum but did not see an answer so I will ask it. Just purchased P3D v4 and would like to purchase FSUIPC-5, my question is... Is there any problem if I copy in my many assignments and settings in my FSUIPC4.INI into the FSUIPC5?
  11. Thanks for your reply Pete, I will review further.
  12. I have been experimenting with using FSUIPC (v. 4.966c) for more and more functions and was wondering if there is a method of toggle displaying FPS through FSUIPC in my FSX-SE sim? Also is there a way to setup by a key press (like F11) a Lock Spot View?

    THANK YOU Pete. One last thing I just wanted to share my excitement after making changes as per your last reply to me regarding - JoyNames It is awesome, see below what I did to JoyNames and I no longer loose my setting whenever I unplug controleers and/or plug into a different USB slot. I am just learning what amazing power FSUIPC has. Not sure what the - 0.Radio Switch Device is though? Or the 1= Controller,,,, 2=Logitech..., 3-T-Rudder... is?
