FSUIPC 4.949 FSX-SE crashing on startup.


Recommended Posts

Hello Pete, 

 

I have a problem with FSUIPC. I recently installed the newest version 4.949 and FSX-SE is crashing as soon as it gets past the loading screen. When my flight loads and it goes to the cockpit, it immediately shuts down without any errors. When I change the DLL.XML entry to "True", my FSX-SE does not crash anymore. Which confirms to me that FSUIPC is the culprit. I am sending you my FSUIPC log file as well as my DLL.XML entries for you to see in hopes that you could help me with this. I've never had this problem before and it is quite strange that this is happening now. 

 

Thanks Pete!

********* FSUIPC Log file closed ***********

 

Actually, the Log shows a normal close down. FSUIPC certainly isn't crashing there, nor taking down FSX.

 

To help further I would need 

1) the log created when the crash has actually occurred

2) the details from the Windows Event Viewer, detailing the type and place of the error.

 

The most usual crash at that time is when the FLT + WX file is loaded, and almost always indicates a corrupted WX (weather) file. Those files are binary and are read by FS completely unchecked. The other possibility is a corrupted wxstationlist.bin file (found in the same folder as your DLL.XML). You can try deleting both files. The BIN file will be regenerated and, of course, you can recreate the weather saved in the WX files any time, or not bother anyway if you are using a weather program.

 

The reason corruptions in these files only crash FS when FSUIPC is running is that FSUIPC reads the weather data from SimConnect regularly, as soon as it is ready. This diagnosis is bolstered by the fact that your FSUIPC is not registered, so FSUIPC is doing almost nothing else at that time, just reading data from SimConnect, weather included.

Thank you very much Pete, my problem has been solved by uninstalling the wxstationlist.bin file. I can now run FSX-SE thanks to your help. Once again thank you for your help and time.
