A VERY BIG THANK YOU to Pete (and a Weather.DLL problem too)


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete!

This is my first visit to this forum so I was mildly surprised to read some of the posts. I want to really thank you for the long time supporting us with your clever and smart program and there is no doubt that many other add ons would not have been possible in an easy way without your kind permission of letting many developers use your utility. I am paying n ot too little for my hobby (as my wife uses to say), spending a lot of money for a 3.2 GHz rig with 4 GB SD DDR RAM dual channel, waiting for the GO FLIGHT console, having bought many pay ware,... so what`s it up with that rumour? The registration of FSUIPC is much less than you deserve!

Pete, can you imagine why I am getting en error message after FS9 waiting some time loading (the bar showing 0%): weather.dll is causing problems.

I finally got around by changing the weather theme of the default flight in the main menue-weather edit screen before I started to hit the fly button.

But letting it unchanged FS) refuses to load.

Have you any hints? Did I mess around with some settings?

Thank you again and my best regards

Normally a crash in the Weather DLL during loading means either a corrupt WX file set with your default Flight, or possibly one of the files in the WEATHER sub-folder is corrupted.

For the former either delete the WX file associated with your default FLT file, or edit the FS9.CFG to remove the default flight, stopping it loading. For the latter I don't know any way apart from re-installing them.

You say there's a Theme selected in your default flight? If so, then perhaps that file is corrupted. They are in their own subfolder (Weather\Themes), so maybe those could be re-installed. When you do manage to load FS successfully, can you select that theme okay in the Weather menu?

Since I do a lot of testing I always have a parallel unmolested installation of FS in my PC, so to check things like this it is always possible just to copy such files from one installation to the other. Failing this it is often a complete re-installation -- and that is usually what Microsoft's support will advise.

Sorry, I cannot narrow it down any further.

Regards,

Pete
