You are not the only one out there.I have the same problem since I changed my OS to Win XP-Pro.All seems to be ok and then somewhere towards the end of the flight - just before or after descent "Billies BOX".At the moment I think that it has to do with one of my Add-on'sHowever it would be nice if someone out there with some ideas or experiences also could reply.My current system:PC 1 - Intel MB - P4 1.7G - 1 Gig RDRAm PC800 - Graphics Asus T14600 128 DDR - Sound Creative SBlive 5.1 Platinum - HDD WD 80Gig 7200 Rpm - Realtek LAN card - MS Side winder FF 2 - CH pro pedals through game port - 2 Monitors Samsung 763 DFX 17" - OS Win XP-ProSoftware - FS2002 Pro - FS Navigator - FSUIPC (2.93)- WideFS (5.20)- GPSOut - Adventure Display (Hidden, I use Adventure Text on PC 2) - Radar Contact - FS Ocean FX - FS Sky - - Scenery NL2000 updated for FS2002 - Autogen Europe - UK Mesh - UK airports package 2 (SW England) - Flight1 GB Airports -Video Driver NVidia 40.72, in the Bios AGP 256, in FS AA disabled else I get Full Screen problems - FS almost Fully maxed - Sound driver Creative Live driver Pack.

somethimes I have the same problem with g3d.dllI'm not a computerguru but what I do is trying to start FS2002 with the default flight at Meigs. ( My flights/other/fltsim ).whenever I have a crash I start the defaultflight at Meigs.Once that didn't the trick because the sim crashed after the opening screen . What I did in this case :edit Fs2002.cfg and change (USERINTERFACE)MAP_ORIENTATION=2PAUSE_ON_LOST_FOCUS=1PROMPT_ON_EXIT=1LessonsLevel=0LessonsTitle=0SelectFlightLevel=0SelectFlightTitle=56PageID=3OpenATCOnCreate=0SITUATION=FLIGHTSOTHERfltsim <-------------conclusion : when something goes wrong with FS2002 restart with the default flight at Meigs.hope this helpshappy crashing , sorry flying.pat

guys, have you done a search at MS? Although I don't have this particular problem, I did, in the past, have a constant error problem with a .dllA search in the 'support' section (i think) gave me the answer, all I searched for was xxx.dll and it threw up all the posts (and solutions/possible solution) regarding that xxx.dllIn the end I had my problem fixed, by me! and i surprised myself at the ability to repair something, lol.just a thought......see you in the clouds!David

Ok One step further. I re-installes XP-Pro and fs2002.Then I noticed something, pure by accident, after a while my Sidewinder force feed back 2 stopped responding completely and when descending the crash happened again.It seemed that windows XP-Pro was putting the sidewinder on the USB port to sleep and that this caused FS to crash sometime later.A ran a test and kept the sidewinder stick alive every ten minutes or so by selecting outside view and panning a bit with the hat switch, result NO CRASH.I found a setting in the device manager under the USB HUB settings that will put an USB port into a power saving setting and de-activates any USB hub after a period of inactivity, a long flight on the autopilot and FMC can cause this to happen.I wonder if there are any more so called intelligent features in XP-Pro?Jack
