P3DV2/FSUIPC Crash


Recommended Posts

Pete,

I am getting a crash in P3DV2 when closing the FSUIPC (version 4.929) Buttons/Switches window. I have got my cockpit all working through FSUIPC and this problem has recently appeared. If I open FSUIPC from the drop down menu to check or change an assignment then most times P3D stops working with the message P3D. exe has stopped working.

As a quick test for this email I loaded a  short flight. Whilst parked at the gate I opened and closed the Buttons/Switches page several times without a crash. Then I completed the flight and when parked at the destination gate I opened FSUIPC Buttons/switches page again - closed it and crash.

Here is the log:

I suspect I need to enable logging as this doesn't give much info.
Should I reinstall FSUIPC 4.929 or install one of the later versions and  if so will I be able to copy over all my settings/assignments/calibrations?
Thanks
Bill

You are using an older version of FSUIPC and one I cannot support. The earliest supported version is currently 4.934.

 

Assignments and settings never change when installing new versions. Nothing changes except you get updates to the program itself, documentation, and example plug-ins and the like.

Pete,

OK I installed 4.934 and experienced the exact same "P3D has stopped working". However I have decided to uninstall P3DV2 (as several other little issues were appearing) and then install P3D V2.2 Hopefully, after doing that, all will be ok again. FSUIPC has always been very reliable for me and I am really suspecting a P3D issue has been the root cause of this problem.

Thanks,

Bill

The Windows event viewer will give crash details including the module name and location within it. That's the first check. I noticed you were using the iFly 737 -- are you sure that is P3D compatible? Not all FSX add-ons can be transposed to P3D without adjustment.

Pete,

Yes I am using the IFly737 Cockpit Builders Edition  (P3D version) so that should not be the issue. Leaving today for a weeks visit to the grandchildren et al. Will update you when I return.

I had all my switches, throttles, flaps etc set up through FSUIPC without any problems at all and all worked well for several months. Just recently this issue along with other minor niggles started appearing. This has prompted me to finally upgrade to P3D V2.2

Pete,

OK I have now updated to P3Dv2.2 and also updated the IFly737 CBE. The crash still happens when exiting FSUIPC after making changes to Button Assignments. Sometimes if I go first to FSUIPC before flying I can make changes without any crash. Have just done this but after a few minutes (still parked at gate) I get a crash again when trying to change an assignment. Here is a log from yesterday
