  1. Hi Peter, Finally had a chance to try the updated FSUIPC4 and it works great, thanks!! :) Next mission is to install acceleration. Peter, your support here is outstanding, second to none!! Thanks for your efforts Cheers, Bob
  2. Hi Peter, Thats good news :) The reason I hadn't installed sp2 was because I intended to install accelleration at some point, just hadn't got around to it as yet. I'm off to Melb for a few days, Will update when I get back on Sat. Cheers, Bob
  3. Interesting, I get exactly this as well with 4.82 You may find that if you click to a different main menu item, then click on Free Flight again, fsx will crash at that point as well. I only had the scenery load all the way to 100% once before fsx crashed, thereafter fsx would crash a few secs after clicking 'fly now', until I deleted fsx.cfg. Since having done that, fsx loads the scenery all the way to 100% every time before crashing. Kym, would be better to start a new topic, threads get confused otherwise.
  4. The log generated is very verbose! Some 350k in size:) I launched fsx and while it was on the home menu item, I copied the log to the desktop. I then clicked on Free Flight, waited for the crash then made another copy of the log to see the difference. So theirs SimConnect0 home.Log and SimConnect0 freeflight.Log attached to this reply. Here are the last few lines from the post crash SimConnect0 freeflight.Log Flags=3, origin=0, interval=0, limit=0 < 47.21594 [63] Event: 10 < 47.21599 [63] EventFrame: 27 0.000000 < 47.33704 [63] EventFrame: 27 0.416405 < 47.33714 [63] EventFrame: 2 0.416405 < 47.35632 [63] Event: 4 < 47.35634 [63] Event: 4 < 47.35635 [63] Event: 4 < 47.35643 [63] Event: 4 < 47.35646 [63] Event: 4 < 47.44316 [63] EventFrame: 27 9.432457 < 47.44328 [63] EventFrame: 2 9.432457 < 47.44618 [63] Event: 4 < 47.44631 [63] Event: 3 < 47.44636 [63] ObjectData: RequestID=-536870912 DefineID=-86050082 dwSize=556 Ah, have just discovered that I can't attach .log files. Do you want me to email them to you? I must curl up and slip into a quiet coma now - will reply tomorrow. Cheers, Rob
  5. Sorry, meant to say that fsx launched at the 'home' menu item. I then clicked Free Flight, the default ultralight shows, rotates a tiny bit then freezes then fsx crashes.
  6. Still no joy. I moved the current fsx.cfg to the desktop then ran fsx. It created a new fsx.cfg, then asked me to allow the dll to run [like at first install] and then opened the main menu > free flight with the default ultralight aircraft, then crashed with the same log for api.dll and exception code. edit: should also mention that I have orbx ftx Au sp4 and orbx Jandakot airport installed. They're the only two addons that I have installed.
  7. Removed the wx file without saving the flight so as not to create a new wx - didn't solve. Then tried saving the flight so as to allow fsx to create a new wx - still no joy. The only WXstationlist file is a .bin in the weather folder. If fsx is started on the Free Flight menu [no crash at this point] but I then click any other menu item [still no crash], then go back to Free Flight, fsx crashes, so it does seem to be a conflict much earlier on, right at the start. The only difference I can see with the Free Flight menu as compared to the others, is the rotating animation of the aircraft of choice. Here's the crash log: Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: fsx.exe Application Version: 10.0.61355.0 Application Timestamp: 4643ee0a Fault Module Name: API.DLL Fault Module Version: 10.0.61355.0 Fault Module Timestamp: 4643f2a9 Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Offset: 00038989 OS Version: 6.1.7600.

  8. Unexpected forum layout, arrived here direct from external link, bottom part is off screen on my monitor and apparently was slow to load at my end and hence not scrollable, so didn't know it was there. Because the problem only appeared after installing FSUIPC. If I move the dll out of the modules folder, fsx works fine again. I've also noted another behavior. When I initially closed fsx to install FSUIPC, the main menu item that fsx was on when I closed it was 'Settings'. Because fsx remembers the last menu item you were on, when I restarted fsx after installing FSUIPC, it loaded up the Settings menu again and all seemed fine at that point. It wasn't until I clicked on Free Flight that the crash occurred - that's the story to date. However, I have also noted that after moving the dll out of the modules folder to confirm that fsx was ok again, I had then closed fsx while it was on the Free Flight menu. I then moved the dll back into the modules folder and tried running fsx again and to my surprise, the Free Flight menu appeared, the selected plane was rotating and there was no crash. I thought I was in luck! But alas, I clicked 'Fly Now', the scenery etc. began loading and right at the end of that, just before the cockpit appears, it crashed again.

  9. Hi Peter, Have installed latest FSUIPC from http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html and registered it. All went fine, the dll was detected with the correct signature when I ran fsx and windows sought my approval to run the dll. But then on the main menu page, fsx crashed when I tried to select 'Free Flight'. The Free Flight menu opens and a few seconds later the crash message appears. All other menu items on the main page of fsx open ok. No amount of restarts of fsx or the OS has resolved the problem. OS is win7 32 Your thoughts. Cheers, Rob
