Sudden CTD loading PMDG a/c

Recommended Posts

Hi,All of a sudden, whenever I load a PMDG a/c no matter if I do it when setting up the flight or if I change to the PMDG a/c after already started up a flight with any of the default FS a/c FS9 crashes with a message stating 'Fatal error' and when I click on the details button to get more info it refers to a module called PMDG_737NG_Main.gau.Any idea on things I could try to fix this kind of problem? Would be very greatful if I don't have to reinstall the whole package.Thanks in advance for any help,

Thanks, I'll try deleting my FS9.CFG and see if that solves the problem...even though I'm not too keen on deleting it since it hold lots of settings I don't look forward to do all over again...;-)

Richard - Why not move the fs9.cfg or simply rename it??? That way you can move whatever you want to move to the new config file.Hope it helps,

That's my plan Mats ;-) but FS9.CFG is quite a complex file as I'm sure you know and I have lots of add-on's installed so I hope I'll be able to find all settings that differ from the original one so I don't end up having to re-install every single add-on that has modified FS9.CFG.But like I said, I'll give it a try and see what happens! What I find strange is that it's only the PMDG a/c that won't load, all the other loads just fine.All the best,

Richard,that happened to me twice... Each time I must have installed or uninstalled something to/from FS2004. But I've never found the cause... what helped for me was a new installation of the 737. Fortunately that is an easy thing with all those installers available...Regards,Markus

I have found these to be most time consuming to set up whereas the rest can be set in 1-2 minutes.Anyway, try not to spend to much time debugging this a/c. It's a lot faster to reinstall the whole thing.

Thanks for all help and tips given but I solved the problem now. Tried to remember what...if any...changes I did to my FS setup that could have caused my problem and came to think of the latest AIRAC (0412). Installed that a couple of days ago and that's the only change I've done. Anyway, I downloaded and installed the old 0411 AIRAC and the problem was gone and everything worked just fine again!Then I figured I should try reinstalling the 0412 version once again to see what happens and after doing that it still works...so maybe it was just something that went wrong the first time I installed the 0412 AIRAC.On a sidenote I can also mention that before this I tried the suggested tip to rename the FS9.CFG and let FS create a new one and that also cured the problem - don't really get all this but why worry now that everything is back to normal again ;-)Cheers,
