FS9 Flight Planner

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this is a repeat but I have been having logon problems.When I go to Flight Planner to load an existing flight plan, as soon as I click on "Flight Planner" the hour glass appears and the sim closes with the usual message that "it needs to close" etc.I have tried all the options I can think of, any ideas?

Thanks for that Anil,No infections and a re-install does not help, even following a clean install of XP.

That's not impossible but it appears to be a known fault and nobody seems to know the solution.It's not exactly high priority because FSX is now well established.

After the reinstall, did you try using the flight planner with the virgin FS9 (default plane, default textures, default scenery etc.)? I had the exact same problem and it was caused by one paint scheme of an add-on airplane. R-

Thanks Ron.I'll try that out because I am currently always using addons.

You could try clearing out all of your existing filghts from your flight plan folder (my documents flightsimulator files)Might be something in there giving you grief (a saved filght perhaps?)Mark

Why not try real troubleshooting instead of trying random things in hope that it works?Common sense says:- Go to Event viewer and view the error generated by the application when it crashes.- What is the EXACT error you get? "it needs to close, etc" is not an exact error.- When did this start happening, did it always work up until a certain point?- If so, then figure out what you have installed between the time it was working and the time it stopped- Do a system restore back to the last date you know it workedThese are the first steps you need to take to logically make sense of your situation and allow us to give you real help and not just give you random suggestions that make absolutely no sense and won't get you up and running again.Mike T.
