FSUIPC chrashes with PMDG 737 time after time

Recommended Posts

Hi there,  

My FSUIPC  chrashes with PMDG 737 time after time after 5 or 10 minutes. Not with other planes. 

It happens with former versions of FSUIPC, , also with the brand new FSUIPC7.3.18c

Restarting isn`t possible, because 'there`s a copy running' what can`t be easely stopt in the taskmanager. 

PLEASE help i tryed everything. 😞  ini and logfile attached

Thnx in advance! 

Regards.

I need see your FSUIPC7.log file, not the installation log file. Also, please check the windows Event Viewer and see if there are any faults or exceptions reported there, and if so please show them to me.

When did this start then?

Looking at your ini, it seems that you are only using FSUIPC for LINDA and a VRInsight device, which entry also looks incorrect. Try without LINDA and maybe remove the [VRInsight] section from your FSUIPC7.ini file as well.

Also check that you are using the latest version of the PMDG 737

Hello John, THNX for responds! 

Oops, sorry for the wrong logfile.  FSUIPC.log now atached.

I do see some events according to FSUIPC, see atached. 

It happends since some months now, i don`t rember exactly when, or after wich event. sorry. 

I indeed use fsuipc for LINDA and VRInsight mcp combo2 and a VA-program (transavia VA).   Curious to know what is incorrect. 

PMDG 737, I use version 3.0.63, witch is the latest, if i`m correct. 

Flying now without LINDA, 30m. no issues so far, but with not using Linda and combo2.  I do hope to use them again without issues...

What can i do? 

Error 230313.evtx Error 230313.evtx FSUIPC7.log

It probably isn't - I am just used yo seeing two com ports (one virtual) in the VRInsight section, but I guess you aren't using SerialFP2 so this is ok.

They are just standard events, nothing to worry about.

The event logs don't tell me much unfortunately, just that FSUIPC has hanged.

If you don't get the issue when not using LINDA, then the problem is either in LINDA or in FSUIPC's lua script handling. First, continue without LINDA for a while to confirm this.
If this is due to LINDA, you are probably better off asking about this on the LINDA support forum. But, before you do this, could you activate Lua Plugins logging and turn off logging for Events and IPC Writes, and show me a log file generated with this logging activated when it hangs,

I flew mij 737 with FSUIPC7 and without LINDA.  no hangings..but when shutting down MSFS, then FSUIPC hangs, no auto-shutdown. (not responding) 

I atached mij FSUIPC.log with only LUA-log on. 

Hope you can find something to correct.

7.3.18 has been released - can you please update to the released version.

I see you are using a VRI device. Your log shows FSUIPC is hanging when trying to close the DevCom threads for this device:
 

Quote

  1448563 **** DevCom read/write threads still running - will exit anyway but could cause issues...
  1448719 **** DevCom Write thread terminated
  1448875 **** DevCom Read thread terminated

However, the threads look like they have been forcibly terminated, so I am not sure why it isn't exiting correctly.

Can you remove the following entries from the [General] section in your FSUIPC7.ini file (if they exist) and try with the default values (10ms) for these: ComReadLoopTime, ComWriteLoopTime. If you get the same issue, try reverting to the previous values by setting:
    ComReadLoopTime=20
    ComWriteLoopTime=20

John, Gratefull for your help!! 

I do see: ComReadLoopTime=20
You like me too remove it completely....or set it to 10?  (INI atached) 

In the formal post was a logfile after a short flight with 737...and msfs is shut down the proper way (mainmenu, quit)  I can`t force stopping "IPC Interface and More, for MSFS" in taskmanager, so i restart my pc. (is there another way?) 

- Now i atached a logfile with loading 737 after start, but not flying, (exit proper way) FSUIPC did shut down, combo2 was reset. (Xfsuipc.log)
- After that, startup, 737 short flight, shut down proper, fsuips hangs. _log atached)

? When I say "try with the default values", I just mean with these not specified in your ini file, as anything there will take presidence.

No point in looking at your logs until you try this.

Sorry, for me it`wasn`t.  So i did it all, and FSUIPC connects and exits as it shoud, with ComReadLoopTime (and write) 10 and 20.  When Linda atached (not to my combo!) it freezes on shutdown. 

Did a clean install of FSUIPC, worked fine. I don`t think FSUIPC is the problem, do you?

Hi John, I don't want to defend myself.

Initially my problem was that when using FSUIPC, Linda, COMBO2 and PMDG the combo2 stopped working after 5/10 minutes. FSUIPC seemed to be stuck. This did not happen with other aircraft (Justflight BAE146 as an example

Unfortunately I can no longer reproduce the problem because LINDA now no longer connects to my combo at all, despite everything being green in linda  and I reinstall both FSUIPC and linda by default.

I've been using this configuration for years, so think how it shoud works.

After a clean install of FSUIPC7 (VRIcombo2 flashes, and flashes again on exit from MFSF). Using linda, FSUIPC does not close, but crashes. Then i need to restart the PC. 

I can't explain it more clearly. Sorry. But after days of trying, reinstalling, reading, starting, waiting in vain for results makes me a bit desperate.

Regards.

Not sure what you mean by this...I just want to know if your CTD problem has gone, and if the only issue now is that FSUIPC7 doesn't exit cleanly.

For issues with LINDA, you need to use the LINDA support forum - I cannot help with LINDA, sorry.

But as far as I understand, it is not crashing anymore but just not exiting properly - probably due to either some lua threads or the VRI DevCom thread not exiting correctly. As I said, for this issue I need to see your log with the  Lua Plugins and Extras logging activated, as well as your ini file. But for your other issues with LINDA, you need LINDA support. The shutdown issue may also be related to your issue with LINDA, but FSUIPC7 should still exit cleanly.

Hi John,  The only thing that i did not have is a CTD,  I expierenced a freezing FSUIPC, with using Linda and PMDG.

Now  FSUIPC starts and stops with MSFS properly. Thank you very much for your help!! 

For some reason i can`t get my combo2 working at all, so can`t reproduce the problem. 

I will contact LINDA support for my further issues.

I hope that when i expierience and can reproduce the initiall problem again i may contact you again. 

Regards 

Piet
