Hey, I recently reinstalled FSUIPC since I had some troubles with my sim and thought it could be related to FSUIPC. Now FSUIPC isn't working at all. So basically what's happening is that I click "fly now" in FSX-SE so it loads in, after it successfully loaded in, it crashes to desktop after a couple of seconds (about 5 secs).

PS: Thanks for any help in advance (FSUIPC log is attached)

The log actually shows a perfectly normal shut down -- 9 seconds after everything has started okay.

I think you'll need to carry out a process of elimination to find the real culprit add-on, which is apparently not actually causing FSX to crash but close properly.

If you really do think it is a crash, check the Event Viewer in Windows to se what it might be.

Thanks for the reply! I'm pretty sure it's a crash since I load in, the game freezes for a few seconds (windows is telling me that it's not responding) and then it just closes itself.
For the Event Viewer: I never really used it before so what exactly do I check and where?

Kind regards,
Erik

Well, FSUIPC is receiving a notification from the Sim that it is closing, and closes itself peacefully. A crash would not do that.

Type Event Viewer is the search place on screen (bottom left) and when it shows above, double click it to run it.

Select Windows Logs -> Application, and then scroll down the list shown looking for a red icon labelled "Error". Find the one relating to the FSX.exe -- details are shown in the text window below when you select an item.

If you find it, there may be other errors, entries or warnings below it with the same time stamp. Those may show whatever was going wrong leading to the final "error".

If it wasn't really a crash, but something else wrong with an add-on which made the sim close prematurely. Sometimes corrupted code or data might do that.

The only such data which FSUIPC would instigate FSX reading and processing are the weather-related files, the wxstationlist.bin file in this folder:
C:\Users\<yourusername>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft|FSX
and the .wx files in your FSX documents folder (the folder where your saved flights are).

If any of those are corrupted, possibly from a previous crash of FSX, then they can cause unpredictable errors when loaded. Unfortunately FSX's SimConnect doesn't check these files before use.

So, you can try deleting all of those files.

Another test would be to insert "NoWeatherAtAll=Yes" into the [General] section of the FSUIPC4.INI file. That will stop FSUIPC asking for the weather data. Of course this will stop any FSUIPC applications you may have getting weather data, but perhaps you have none.

That's the important part.  AI Player DLL is the part of FSX-SE which deals with AI traffic. I suspect you have a faulty AI aircraft installed.  It could conceivably be a faulty airport at which an AI aircraft was trying to land, takeoff or taxi/park -- as it occurs very early in the session it would either be a bad aircraft or a problem with a parking position.

Alright, I did some troubleshooting myself and it turns out I'm just an idiot, sorry.
I was installing the weather engine FSXWX and it's telling you to delete the wxstationlist.BIN in %appdata%/Microsoft/FSX so I did that but I also deleted the one in the FSXRootFolder/weather and that's what was causing fsx to crash.

Anyway, thanks for the help and for showing me how to use the Event Viewer! I'm sure It'll come in handy when troubleshooting other games as well.

Kind regards,

Erik

Glad you got it sorted.

By the way, do you now how I can fix my airspeed indicator bouncing up and down really fast? FSX is like changing my wind direction every second, I think it has to do something with the weather.

Edit: I just realized, this is caused by FSUIPC. I took the fsuipc.dll out to check and everything was normal

Idk if it helps but I just wanted to add that I have the unregistered version.

In unregistered  mode, FSUIPC does nothing whatsoever except supply the interface used by other programs!  That's the only point of installing it and not registering it.

So, if you have a problem with the weather look for a weather program using FSUIPC, like FSXWX. Then stop that instead.

Yeah, I just tried some settings in fsxwx and now it works, idk was it was. Sorry for blaming FSUIPC.

So, now that all my issues are cleared feel free to close this topic if you want.

Thanks again for the help

Kind regards,
Erik
