Fatal Error! CTD and... other add-ons are gone!

Recommended Posts

Hi,I have just bought 747X an hour ago. I have registered & installed it. No problem in doing so.Upon choosing PMDG 747X I am presented with "do you want to allow PMDG... bla-bla" I've answered "yes" and also chose that to be the default in future.Oki, so far so good. Then "Fatal Error" FSX -> CTD -> Automatic restart of FSX. This is my first buy from PMDG and I have been waiting for this bird for some time.Besides from that I can't get this piece of software to work - which is bad enough, I was kinda sad (still am!) when I went to look into the XML.dll file It now looks like this: PMDG OptionsFalsePMDGDLLsPMDGOptions.dllPMDG EventsFalsePMDGDLLsPMDGEvents.dllPMDG SoundsFalsePMDGDLLsPMDGSounds.dll<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>Launchdll.xmlFalseFalseTraffic ToolboxFalseFalseMyTraffictraffictoolbox.dllLevel-D SimulationsFalseFalseModulesLVLD.dllFSUIPC 4FalseModulesFSUIPC4.dllFeelThere PIC737X HelperFalseFeelThereB737PIC737XH.dllHey!??? I now see that everything after what has to do with PMDG is in one line if the file is opened with Notepad. File won't open in browser. The XML file is no good it says... something with top element. When I copied the text into here it now looks as above...XML.dll is not Read Only, so that's not it.But anyways, my LVL-D is not working either now (after installing PMDG). I get a Panel Init. failure and then... Fatal Error -> Automatic Restart...Default planes are fine.The only entry I have in the CFG file about PMDG is this:C:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesMicrosoft Flight Simulator XGAUGESPMDG_747400_Main.DLL.czenuharlnlaowtteeotlqubetnrtkzwhubhawrn=2My specs:Dell 9150Pentium D, 3.4Nvidia 8800gts As I've said, first buy from PMDG... I hope this is easily solved!I hope for help ASAPKind regardsPeter Halkier :-(PS I've attached my xml.dll & CFG file. http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/179636.txthttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/179637.txt

Cheers for that..I actually thought I'd done this until I saw your reply and looked at my dll.xml again..Then I realised I'd copied and pasted, so the original was still there...doh!!Deleted the first entry and all is fine..Thanks againSteve

Hello all,I have also installed the 747X on my Vista computer and have no errors at all! Also, when I take a look at my dll.xml file it's not screwed up at all, PMDG entries are at the bottom of my .xml file.Strange...........PeteEHAM

I have my Level D 767 and PMDG 747 in FSX on Vista with UAC turned on. Not a problem and all working well from the word go. The problem with the dll.xml file existed for some users long before the appearance of the 747. It even plagued 767 users prior to the onset of the 747 too. Due to a problem between SimConnect and the dll.xml some items do not appear in the file menu of FSX. This was reported by Aces some time ago and it was said they were working on the issue.I have only heard one instance of this but I`ll tell you the outcome. Someone recently told me that they bought Accelerator and once again blamed that too for the file menu problems. So now we have the allegedly the 747, the 767 and Accelerator blamed for a problem that already existed. Now, this is unconfirmed but the same person who blamed Accelerator said he fixed it as follows.He said someone told him there was an SDK on the Accelerator disk. He installed it and the problem was gone. Now whilst fully realizing that a garbled .xml file has to be tidied up first I wonder if the SDK includes the SP2 part that fixes the existing file menu problem.....Just so you`re all aware, it isn`t necessarily the 747 at fault..... The next bit of software that comes out will probably be blamed for the demise of this flakey file and SimConnect too.Reider

Hi,same here, i'll get a CTD once selecting the PMDG 747. After selecting there's some activity going on (like when i load other addons for example) and then CTD.I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2 And FSX SP1 (but without the Acceleration Pack yet). Updated NavData tp 0711 but that had no effect.kind regardsjanosch
