missing sound file?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I have the MD-11 FSX and the fs2crew fsx version w/update.About the 35 min point during preflight I get an FSX freeze/fatal error. The message contains : sound\fs2crew\md11\to\cvr.wavcreation failed. Please make sure file is available...or something to that effect.I am confused and a little frustrated.Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Chad,That sound file should be there (I have it on my system) unless it's been corrupted or accidentally removed somehow.Try re-installing FS2Crew MD-11 and the latest Update to restore that sound file.Let me know if that does the trick.Cheers,

Hi Bryan,Thank you for responding. I did uninstall and reinstall several (4-5) times. And no successwith the installation of the missing file. I decided to try being a little clever and copied the .wav file for the cvr from sound\PMDG\MD11\various (the file named CVRTest)That seems to have satisfied the missing file request. However Bryan, I do not understand why the file is missing in the first place and can not be reinstalled...Thank you Bryan. If you have any idea(s), please holler.

Hi Chad,That sound file is in our installers.And I haven't had that reported before out of a large user base, and it's the kind of thing that everyone would experience, and I'd hear about 100 times a day!I suspect the CVR.wav file was already in memory by chance when you tried to install FS2Crew MD-11, and maybe that some caused interference.Did you load the PMDG MD-11 just prior to installing FS2Crew?Just a wild guess, that.That's my only explanation.Cheers,

Hi Bryan,Yes, I did install the MD-11 just prior to installing the FS2crew MD-11 version.I was scratching my head as I had searched on the forum for an answer(s) prior to making a post. I agree that if it were an widespread problem, you certainly would be aware.I am not sure why I am marked for this weird anomaly.I do not understand why the installer is not depositing the file where it is supposed to, as it is in a different location that the MD-11 files?!Things that make you go...oh crap...!Thanks for your response. I am puzzled still on this.

I'm still guessing the CVR wav file was in memory when you installed FS2Crew.At any rate, you manually copied the wav file over, so you've got it working.I'm sorry, that's my possible explanation at this point as I've never that happen before.All the best,

Hi Bryan.Ok, I guess this has both of us stumped. I am glad that the workaround was a success. I have used this (you program) successfully now for a couple days.Still scratching head on this......Thank you for responding again.

Hello,just to let you know that I've reinstalled FS2Crew MD11 on a new FSX in Win 7, And I've go the same problem with the cvr.wav file.I have installation file version 1.1 and the latest service update 3. Maybe we should install all previous updates before update 3 ?

Hi Stephane,Hmmmm, well, you're the 2nd out of a large number of users to experience that, so it's hard to say what's happening. It's obviously not happening to everyone or I'd hear about it 40 times a day.Simple solution:Email me and I'll send you the sound file directly.Cheers,

Well it happenned to me too.I had the MD11 and FS2crew installed in both FS9 and FSX without problems I recently upgraded my computer (hardware) and Vista 64. After re-installing FS2crew I started experiencing this problem. I don't know what else to say, but it's weird because it used to work fine!Thanks,Danny

Hi Danny,That is weird. Again, I suspect it's an installer issue of some sort. Try re-install FS2Crew again doing a cold re-boot.If that still fails, please email me and I'll send you the file manually.Best,

Thanks for your quick response. I decided to investigate further... I openned the start ctr and clicked on US voices to re-install and problem solved. Just to mention on the previous installation I did not have the different voice packs installed.Thanks for your support, now I have to get back to my MD11 and J41.Danny

Can you both empty your browser cache and redownload the msi installer file?Then execute the msi installer file.You will then be shown an option to repair or uninstall the Reader.Try to uninstall the Reader Desktop this way.

Same issue here, after reinstalling the base package + update 3. To fix it, I1) Installed the UK + Euro voice sets2) Opened the Start Center and chose "Install US Voice Set".It is probable that doing (2) alone would have fixed it, so if come to this thread looking for a solution, try that step first.

I am having the same problem but I am missing sound\fs2crew\md11\tl\xcheck200.wav. I looked in the directory and its not there. I first encountered this after installing the start center update and the voice sets. I am using the European voice set. I tried an uninstall and reinstall but the problem remained. The interesting thing is that I only seem to get this message when flying into Amsterdam so far. After the reinstall I flew to London with no problem but when I flew back to Amsterdam I got the same message. Also if there is an xcheck200fo I don't have that file either but never got an error message about that. I tried what Tom Risager did but there is still no file there.

 

A thought that just occured to me. Could it be this only happens at Amsterdam because the Transition Level is only 3000 feet there?
