Latest Fsuipc V8.5 Has Caused C.t.d. On My System.

Recommended Posts

Hi all, (Edit: First off, the title should read v3.85 and NOT v8.5!! So sorry, I forgot to type the '3' when composing my post)Since buying FS9, I have been very grateful to have never had a situation where I have crashed to the desktop. Yep...not just the mask that comes up that FS9 has experienced a problem and now must close...but a totally abrupt C.T.D.With having done nothing else with FS9...no adding of anything, or changes of any setting within FS9---BUT...with the exception of replacing FSUIPC v3.8.0 with the latest FS9 version of 3.8.5, I have suffered two C.T.D.'s when flying over Toronto and there was a heavy concentration of A.I. traffic which was being handled by AISMOOTH. With version FSUIPC v3.8.0, I was good-to-go as usual. When I swapped out for v3.8.5 (and that was the ONLY change-up) is when my first ever C.T.D.'s happened.\I just found a back-up copy of v3.8.0 and after installing it, (got rid of v3.8.5) I fired up ASv6, then AISMOOTH, and finally FS9 (as I always do in that order). I'm glad to report that now with flying around the perimeter of a heavy-ladened A.I. encrusted :) Toronto Pearson CYYZ, no further C.T.D.'s If you have updated to FSUIPC v3.8.5 and suddenly have problems....go back to v3.8.0 and see if (like myself) that clears it up.Cheers,Mitch

A bit confused:Where did you get version 8.0 or 8.5?Looking at Peter's site, the latest version I see for FS2004 is 3.85. The latest for FSX is 4.40. Both were released November 14, 2008.Good luck:RTH

I've noticed several crash to desktop issues with FSUIPC 3.8.5.Which version is considered stable enough and without any CTD issues?

Gents,If 3.85 really is causing you problems then you must report this to Pete on his forum. he doesn't support anything except the current version.And if you can replicate the problem consistently then it will help him to solve it if FSUIPC is the cause.I'll even make it easy for you. Here's the link.

--------------------------------------------------Hi, yes.... I'd be flying...and all of a sudden....no windows, no warning....CTD!Since having gone back to v3.80, there has been no further problems. In fact, this was the only time ever that I have experienced any form of a CTD.

If you are flying with VATSIM or other ATC, not FS, and FS ATC is turned off, check out the following on page 11 of the v3.85 user guide:For FS2004 (only), FSUIPC offers a facility to suppress all of the FS ATC windows, independently of the option settings in FS, and at the same time actively patch the code in the ATC.DLL to prevent FS crashing. To enable this you have to edit the FSUIPC.INI file, adding ‗RemoveATC=Yes

Ron,Yep, I also have RemoveATC=Yes in FSUIPC.ini file.No crashes.

Gents,I hope you are aware that Pete will NOT support anything except the latest version of FSUIPC.If you are convinced the latest version contains a bug have you reported it to Pete? If not, why not? Reverting to a previous version doesn't address the problem. What do you do when the next version is released containing useful features?

Hello,I install & try sqawkbox 4. After 10 minutes online, i have the same crash : FS desapears.But i still try with olders FSUIPC (3.7 & 3.4.8) & same : when ONLINE (IVAO or VATSIM) i have the sudden CTD.When i use FS with RCV4.3 (and with AI traffics such WOAI) no crash !I think it is my FS multiplayer session who crash my PC !

I found a note I made in my technical files:>>>>If MSFS9 or MSFSX crashes, anytime:FSUIPC's .ini file may have to be backed up then deleted.Run MSFS to rebuild the .ini file.Now add back the custom settings from the backup file.

I've been using FSUIPC version 3.85 since it came out without any issues at all. That includes both online and offline flying. The VATSIM flying has been with both Squawkbox version 3.1 and version 4.0.I had a small issue with a later interim release, 3.856 I think, where FSUIPC stopped recognizing some key strokes. When I posted that to Peter's forum he fixed it in less than a day with version 3.857.I'm now flying with version 3.858 with no troubles at all.

Hello,I'am not sure that my problem is FSUIPC ! I download & install the V3.862 but after 20 / 30 minutes all of a sudden : FS desapers !My problem is only when i try to fly ONLINE (sqawkbox or IVAP).I think there is a major conflict between my FS multiplayer & ???. But it is strange, because the CTD occurs only after 20 / 30 minutes or more ?!!?I'am completly lost & have no ideas how to solve my problem !regards.Christophe.

If you crash FS and perhaps it is covering up an error message relating to atc.dll. Please see page 11 in the version 3.85 user guide in your FSUIPC folder under REMOVING ATC in FS2004. When operating other ATC control but not using FS ATC you can get problems in FS9 only. The modification to FSUIPC.ini required will disable FS ATC. You can comment out the fix when you need to use FS ATC.

Ron,I deleted the "FSUIPC.INI" then i put : "RemoveATC=Yes" in the new fsuipc.ini created when i start fs9.But i have the same crash : FS desaper !It is very curious ! isn't it ?Maybe it is a DIRECTX problem... (i have the 9.0C version)Christophe.
