SimConnect crashing FSX with FSUIPC


Recommended Posts

Pete,

I may have found a possible work around for the problem of FSX crashing when loading troublesome programs with FSUIPC. I edited the xml.dll file on my machine, listing FSUIPC first and all other applications after that. Now I can launch FSX without the troublesome applications crashing it.

Don't know if this will work for everyone.

Oddly, the entire reason I moved it to the end several releases ago was to stop FSUIPC being pre-installed and loading first causing other new installs, with a Security check dialogue, to crash in exactly the same way. I think you are merely shifting the problem! ;-)

Once you have approved "Peter L Dowson" as a supplier of software (via the drop-down options in the Security dialogue) you will never get another such dialogue for any of my programs in any case, unless they have been interfered with to invalidate the signature (in which case you shouldn't install them in any case).

I think that would be the preferred solution, until Microsoft fix the problem (hopefully in SP1).

Pete,

Just purchased FSUIPC last night even after reading all the forum topics related to other utilities/programmes causing CTD's. I added your simconnect log utility, installed FSUIPC and, as expected, had the CTD. Looking in the simconnect log I determined, as other's had found, that "Autothumbnail" was probably the culprit. I renamed it's xml.dll file to xml.dll.bkp and flashed up FSX so have been able to register and get on with simming. I guess this will remain my fix until SP1 arrives or the thumbnail folks fix their end. Glad to have FSUIPC in FSX as I do using it in FS9. Thanks

Gary

That AutoThumbnail program seems to be a common thread on all these at present. I hope at leasst one user has told the author. I can help him modify it to fix this problem in any case.

Meanwhile, I have suggested to MS this combination (AutoThumbnail and FSUIPC) as a good way for them to test any fix they may, hopefully, be preparing for us.

I was a little hasty in sending of my post because I hadn't completed testing things out. I just went back and renamed the xml.dll back to it's original and now everything is working even "autothumbnail". I guess the secret was temporarily stopping it long enough to complete installing FSUIPC.

You always amaze me..... how do you have time to provide such rapid support and still have a life of your own?

Cheers

Gary

One always has time for one's hobbies. This really is still one of mine -- the others being trying to find time to fly my cockpit, develop my sadly neglected model railway, and travelling to distant places to travel on and video steam trains. Oh, and I try to play table tennis (been a league player for 51 years, but I'm not very good now because of my narrow vision. ;-|

Regards

Pete
