Fatal Error - FSUIPC 4.758 & Vista


Recommended Posts

In a nutshell, my PC is 5 years old, came with Vista (32 bit), Didn't care for Vista. Reformated and installed XP Pro. FS9 ran great and has done so for the last 5 years. Just bought FSX Gold and it also has run very nicely on XP. Had registered version 3.75 of FSUIPC running on XP. Just for kicks, I decided to install Vista once again. Install went OK this time. Installed FSX and the default flight ran fine. Installed registered version FSUIPC 4.758, loaded the default flight and FSX hung at 100% after loading. I then got "Fatal Error has Occurred". Removed FSUIPC and the default flight loaded and flew. Re-installed 4.758 again and the same scenario happened again-"Fatal Error has Occurred."

Here is the log file in hopes you can advise me on what to do.

Thanks

Chris

Installed registered version FSUIPC 4.758, loaded the default flight and FSX hung at 100% after loading. I then got "Fatal Error has Occurred". Removed FSUIPC and the default flight loaded and flew. Re-installed 4.758 again and the same scenario happened again-"Fatal Error has Occurred."

Here is the log file in hopes you can advise me on what to do.

First of all, please update to a currently supported version. 4.80 is available at all the usual places, 4.7xx was withdrawn some weeks ago.

Second, please look to see if FSUIPC produced a run-time log file (FSUIPC4.LOG), because if it did not then it hasn't even been loaded and you are experiencing the SimConnect trust bug. Please refer to the first pinned thread in the FAQ subforum.

If it did produce a log then please show it to me. Crashes at that stage are usually due to corrupted weather files. But I'd need to see that log.

Regards

Pete

Ok Peter, problem solved. After reading your reply and the "Sticky" and installing version 4.80, I realized that I only had FSX SP1 installed. I installed Acceleration as mentioned in the "Sticky", loaded the default flight and away we went!

Thanks for your help.

Chris
