Airsimmer conflicting with MD-11?

Recommended Posts

I installed the Airsimmer basic package last Monday. I have tried flying it several times but have been unable to finish most flights due to ctd's. This afternoon, I went to load up the MD-11, and got repeated ctd's. Everything works fine with the other addons that I have tried thus far, but the MD-11 refuses to load. I get the ctd after I hit fly now and the scenery load screen comes up. It remains a 0% for several seconds and then crashes. I never had to do this before the AS install, but I loaded the default Cessna and turned everything off. Then I tried to load the MD-11, but got a ctd. I will try a reinstall of the Mightydog as soon as I can reactivate my download link from PMDG. But in the mean time, I wanted to see if you all had any suggestionsMatt LaMay

I would inspect the fsx dll.xml file for problems. Perhaps deleting it and letting FSX rebuild a new one? Same for fsx.cfg it that doesn't work. Also, you can run the pmdg installer and select repair for the sim and the C++ runtime libraries.

Thanks for the reply. this is for fs9 though. Do the same instructions apply? I know about the fs9.cfg, but I've never heard of the other one. PMDG hasn't a new download link to me, but when they do I will definitely try to repair the install.Thanks,Matt

Matt, for FS9 delete the fs9.cfg and let her build a new one (save a backup of what you started with if you wish). There's no dll.xml equivalent in FS9, it's used in FSX to load modules.

Ok so I tried what you suggested, and fs9 kept freezing up. The one time the welcome screen came up, the screen size was 800x600. Luckily, I kept my old one and put it back in place. Another intersting thing...A good friend of mine has the Airsimmer, MD-11, and 747. He confirmed that after he installed the Airbus, his MD-11 stopped working. But his 747 still works.Matt

Hi,If you use FS2Crew with the MD11 check that the gaugesound.dll has not been replaced with a version which is incompatable with FS2Crew, there is a button to restore the gaugesound.dll in the start centre. I have had problems with this in the past when installing other aircraft.Hope this helps,David Marshall
