CTD when changing views

Recommended Posts

Well, this is strange. When I use a 3rd party aircraft, doesn't seem to matter which ones, I often get a frozen screen and CTD when getting back into the VC. This does not seem to happen with the stock AC and seems not to happen if I run in windowed mode. For some reason, turning down the scenery settings seems also to have a positive effect. I am not sure what is happening here. I reinstalled vanilla FSX and SP1 but it still happens. Tried different video drivers for my 7800 GT. Defragged, etc. Still happens...only in 3rd party AC.Anyone else heard of this problem or have any ideas what to try?Running Windows XP 32bit on an AMD Opteron dual core.

Many have this experience with FSX, I regret to say. Many people are awaiting further updates of software to resolve what is an annoying experience. Sorry not to be able to suggest a solution but, as yet, there does not seem to be one at hand.Simon (YSSY)

Well, that is unfortunate. Guess I will have to stay in the cockpit or use the stock AC. Thanks for the reply.

Hope the problem can be solved soon, it is very disgusting.I have the problem when I am playing with Wilco's 777 and Airbus vol.1 and CLS A340-500/600.

I'm having the CTD (msvcr80.dll) crash problem even when flying in default aircraft such as the Cessna and changing views or opening ATC after couple minutes flight. Very dissapointing this..Have tried every imaginable setting in the display settings, also on/off'ed AA/AF in nVidia settings still no joy..

Add me to the list. I have tried darn near everything except for a complete wipe and install. It only started a month or so ago. I use the 7900GS.

It started for me after installing FEX. Is anyone else running that? Did any of you have it start after installing it?

Same problem here. Driving me crazy. I also have 7800GTX, Athlon 4000, XP Pro. Very frustrating not being able to use Level D 767, Super 80 etc...

I tried raising this issue with Phil Taylor (of ACES team) via email. However, no response. I imagine that he and his colleagues are focusing on more fundamental issues (or perhaps still checking out to see if this is an nvidia issue ... quite a few of the people reporting this CTD have an nvidia 7800 gtx). Either way, I agree that it is most frustrating to have only restricted use of FSX - especially in relation to addons like LevelD 767. I live in hope that someone will sort this out and let us know of the cause/remedy.Simon (YSSY)

This CTD error (msvcr80.dll error) seems to plague Nvidia's Geforce 7 series, I used to have a 7600GT and FSX crashes every single time when I'm in a busy area and switching back to the 2D cockpit/VC. :-8 I now have a 8800 GTS and all the CTDs are gone. :-)

Maybe this will help someone else... Updated the following for my asus a8n-sli deluxe - bios ver. 1016 (12-01-2005)& nvidia chipset driver ver. 6.65. Just downloaded & installed latest video driver for my 7800gtx ver. 163.71. Fired up FSX & flew leveld 767 for 45 mins. switching views many times & it ran fine! Hope it lasts!!!

I'm having CTDs in all types of aircraft, default and third party. It started a few weeks ago, with no reason. I hadn't done anything to it, but I think that Microsoft installed a windows update.....I've tried uninstalling FSX and reinstalling, 100% fresh, but this still happens. I've got an NVidia card aswell, apparently a Quadro NVS 110M, whatever that means. FSX was perfectly stable before that, except when I had screwed up my AI traffic and put in the wrong SIM line or something, which also results in a CTD. Is it just me, or is FSX extreamly unstable? I can't remember having issues with FS8 or FS9.....

Has anyone found a fix for this. This happens even on stock aircraft. I have SP2 and the latest video drivers. I have the 7800GT also. I run in full screen mode using 3 monitors with Matrox Triplehead 2 Go digital.I do not have this problem with FS2004.XP OS and 3.6 intel processor, 4 GB Ram.Thanks in advance to all who reply.Bill

This 'msvcr80.dll' error has just started happening for no reason at all, to me too.No Windows Updates installed recently, no driver changes, no new software installed, everything the same as it was when FSX was running GREAT last week...How can a piece of software suddenly decide to throw up errors when NOTHING HAS CHANGED on the PC?Good grief, all these issues are turning off long standing FS enthusiasts, and some may never come back.

Ok, after calming down, and thinking logically, I took the following steps, which seem to have solved my CTD with msvcr80.dll errors:1.) Uninstalled the MS VC++ 2005 SP1 redist (I had two installed on my system as I'm running XP x64, one for x86 and one for x64.) Checked they were no longer listed in Add/Remove programs.2.) Rebooted the PC3.) Navigated to C:WINDOWSWinSxS and deleted the x86_Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.762_x-ww_6b128700 folder. There was also another folder x86_Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.XX_x-ww_6b128700 where the XX highlighted by me was a different number to the previous folder mentioned, so I'm assuming a previous/earlier version of the files.4.) Reinstalled the MS VC++ 2005 SP1 redist (x86). This created a fresh x86_Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.762_x-ww_6b128700 folder within the WinSxS folder, containing msvcr80.dll.The first flight after these steps had no problems, or CTDs, using the same Overland A330 as I was trying to previously.Hopefully this info will be useful to others and possibly help.

I too am experiencing this problem.- It always happens when changing views into the vc- It happens almost every time, but not quite every time. - It has only started happening since installing Acceleration- I have a 7900GT (others have mentioned 7 series in particular)- It's bloody annoying!- Hope to hear about a patch very soon.

nVidia just came out with a new driver (V. 163.75) on the 7th.I downloaded it, uninstalled my old drivers (V. 163.71), then re-installed the new version. Besure to uninstall the old drivers first (also, save your nvidia settings first).Was able to run full screen, flying a couple of different A/C (incl. the FA/18) and didn't crash (so far).Anyway, I have a 7900GS card and seems like a lot of people reporting the same problems have a 79xx video card also.Sure hope this does the trick!I was sure beginning to hate that I spent money on Accel. and it wouldn't wotrk (properly)!

Sounds like a driver issue....Uninstall your current driver and install the new one for both your Motherboard and Video Card....Get back to us... :)

I've tried the suggested fix of uninstalling the redistributable package and deleting the folders. Unfortunately when I try to delete the folder in WINSXS it says access denied as the files are in use.I downloaded process explorer to see which DLLs were in use and killed each process using them, explorer.exe is one of them and so its impossible to kill the explorer.exe process and delete the folder at the same time.Only way I think I could do this would be to load the Windows XP console from the bootable CD but in my opinion this is just ridiculous. Too much effort to try and fix these CTD's when changing views.I have a clean, 'vanilla' install of FSX with Accel and its happening when I change views in virtual cockpit - I have a nVidia 7900GS 256MB and have update the drivers to the latest.I do hope this problem can get fixed. Its supportive to know others are having the same problems as specific as me. Didn't happen before I installed Accel.Please keep this post going and please post any updates to nVidia drivers / more support.Best,Nels
