Troubles with SSWA310.DLL and FSUIPC coexistence

Recommended Posts

Hi Petebest of luck with this new schemeI sincerely hope it works out for you!!

I purchased my registration for FSUIPC yesterday, installed and registered it fine. Also downloaded the new ADVDISP and PFC DLLs. Did a couple of flightsone with the Dream Fleet Cardinal and another with the F1 Meridian all with the new software, including Reality XP's upgradesflew with FS_Meteo and RC3 on both flights so EXCELLENT.

Li most people with the SSW A310, I cannot use FS2002 while the SSWA310.DLL is installed in the Modules folder. It does not coexist at all with the REALITY software, i.e. you cannot start any aircraft with the Reality Garmin or Flightline install .. with the Meridian, you get a Blue Screen of Death, the others simply crash to the desktop.

Ok .. with the new versions of the DLLs as I indicated above, the SSW A310 will not start at allI get to the window menu, and FS2002 quickly crashes to the desktop. If I remove the SSWA310 DLL, all is finethere is LOG for the "all else is fine situation"

Can you tell from the LOG what is happening, Is there a debug in FSUIPC that I can use to help find what is going on?

with the SSWA310.DLL installed:

I don;t believe this is a FSUIPC issuebut I am sure you will hear of this eventuallyOr maybe it is simple just me ...

Thanks Pete, for shedding any light you can on this.

No, there is nothing there that shows any interaction with SSWA310.DLL at all. What is that DLL in any case? I've never heard of it. Does it even use FSUIPC? Does it run without FSUIPC installed?

If it gives so many problems in any case, surely the suppliers have something to say about it?

Sorry, but I really don't think I can be of any assistance in this case. But keep us posted.

Regards,

Pete

Pete,

Thanks for the quick replyapologies for the 2nd duplicate postnot quite sure how that happened ...

The SSWA310.DLL is installed with the SSW A310 Masters editionA310 Airbus addon. I think it does use FSUIPC but I'm certainly not sure.

I think the DLL must contain something which the addon uses .. and I am pretty sure that it adds an item to the FS2002 menu .. similarly as LAGO and PIC 767 do,

Thanks for looking, appreciatre your help!!!

In the event some other poor soul runs into the same issue as I did, the answer is now clear.

With the recent Reality Gauges update, AND when starting the Cessna as default in the FS2002 start, AND having the SSWA310.DLL installed in the moduled folderwhan to the desktop.

Wellwhen the Reality Gauges are installed, they install into the default Cessna soremoving any reference to the reality gauges from the Cessna panel config .. fixes the problem

you can then move the SSWA310.DLL in to the modules folder when you want to use the A310, and out when you want to use anything else.

Hope this helps some of you!!

PeteI simply don;t know how you eep all of this straight!!!!!
