WideFS and FSX SP2

Recommended Posts


Tonight I purchased WideFs but never got a chance to use it. Right after I entered the registration key, FSX got into a habbit of crashing. It crashes so "hard" that without a re-boot FSX won't start again saying it is already running. Well, it is running in the Task Manager but nothing on the screen. Loging off and back on also helps to re-start FSX. Task Manager end process option does not end fsx.exe. No blue screen, FSX just hangs. Sometimes without any warning, sometimes I noticed if I go into Modules/FSUIPC menue in FSX it will crash as soon as FSUIPC opens.

FSX was stable with FSUIPC 4.2 installed until WideFS was registered.

Latest version available I assume was 4.2. I downloaded the file today from http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html.


Zone Alarm and AVG turned off

Windows Firewall turned off

Vista 32 Home Premium

FSUIPC4 installation process had no issues, reported no errors.

Would appreciate some insight and assistance. Thank you.

Registered and enabled, I assume?

Sounds like you have something seriously wrong with your Network adapter or its driver software as that is the only extra activity going on when you have an active WideServer. Try removing the Network hardware in the Windows device manager,, then re-installing so that it restores the drivers.
