FSUIPC-Window hidden


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have the problem, that the FSUIPC-Window seems to bee there, but doesn't appear. It's simply all black - only the mousepointer appears in a range, where the FSUIPC-Window could be.

Windows Vista Ultimate, SP1

FS2004

FSUIPC 3.85 (installed to "..\Flight Simulator 9\Modules\")

an older version of FSUIPC in a Folder "..\Flight Simulator 9\Modules\ASv6\" renamed to "FSUIPC.dll.bak"

no other FSUIPS.dll's in the Applications Folder

no WindowBlinds Application detected

Any hints, what I could do, to see the FSUIPC-Window?

Regards

Sounds like a video driver problem. Try running FS in Windowed mode instead of full screen. That usually gets around such quirks. Otherwise you'll need to find better video drivers.

yes, with FS in on Windows-Mode, it works fine - thanks a lot for the tip!

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS, Driver 180.48. In full Screen-Mode, it still doesn't work. But that's no problem while it works on Window-Mode!

I've had a lot of problems with the 180.xx series of drivers, so much so that I've changed back to my last really good set, 177.xx (can't recall the xx offhand). I've even had to swap out my GTX280 card for a 9800 GTX+ in order to do this.

The symptoms of the problems with 180.xx drivers were Blue Screen of Death crashes in an nv....dll, infrequent but often enough to drive me up the wall, and, in full screen mode, black screen hangs in FSX when I used some of the menus, like aircraft selection. This was the same on two different systems, but both running Vista 64.

I never had any problems till I moved to the 180.xx series drivers. I really don't know what nVidia are doing. :-(

Hi Pete,

hmmmm... maybe the informations may help you to find the reason for the problems.

Vista 32 (was it yesterday or last week, we had two versions of Windows with 16 and 32 bit?)

DirectX 10.0

Driver Name nvd3dum.dll

Driver Description NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS

Driver Version 7.15.11.8048 <---- see below

Vendor ID 10de 4318

Device ID 0193 403

Subsystem ID 042010de 69210334

Revision a2 162

WHQL Level 1 1

GUID D7B71E3E-42D3-11CF-6E7320240DC2CD35

Driversetup is 180.48 and was released on November 19, 2008. Installed yesterday, after reading your post. Previous Driver was 175.16, sometime summer 2008.

Yesterday testet a little bit on FS2004, no blue screens and no hanging black screen (could close it easyly with ). Switching windowed mode to fullscreen and back - no problems, except the black screen on fullscreen, when opening FSUIPC.

For me it's ok with the workaround to switching the screen-modes if I have to make some settings in FSUIPC.

And please stop driving up the wall, that may hurt you seriously ;-)

Thanks -- I think the issues I have with the 180.xx series of drivers must only apply to the 64-bit ones. I'm sure if there were such serious problems with the 32-bit ones they'd have been fixed by now, or there would be a mighty outcry from angry users! ;-)

Regards

Pete
