Nope, it's also in my FSX root directory. Please sign with your full name.

Ok, I found it and the version is as stated on the PMDG wiki. I'm going to fly again tonight or is there something I need to change?**Sorry, I thought my auto signature had my full name**Thanks,Rob Sciarrino

My TrafficInfo.dll file version is the same as yours. I've also never experienced this problem so not much I can add other than the dll info.

I just saw the same thing last night with the 747X on short final to PHNL.I had the traffic toggled off (using the hotkey) in Ultimate Traffic II and had turned it back on about 40nm out from Honolulu. Since UT II SP1 I've also been seeing "flashes" of clusters of traffic, sometimes all red, sometimes amber, along with "TRAFFIC" in the same color on the ND. Is it possible there's something TCAS2V7 doesn't like about the way UT II is injecting traffic?I'm also seeing a lot of atc.dll CTDs at cruise with both the MD-11 and 747 in FSX lately...RegardsBob ScottColonel, USAF (ret)ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VColorado Springs, CO

I don't know Bob, I run UTII without glitches but I always leave it on. The only thing I don't like about it is the delay launching FSX while it does it's thing.

I just found that TrafficScanPerFrame was set to 100 in the FSUIPC4.ini file, so maybe FSUIPC was choking on all that traffic being injected at once. I set it to 10 like I have it set in FS9, and so far no glitches 90 min into a 10 hr flight from KADW-PNHL. I think (hope) maybe that was it.CheersBob ScottColonel, USAF (ret)ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VColorado Springs, CO

Now that is interesting. I wonder what mine is set to, which I will check when I get home.

I don't even have a variable name like that in the FSUIPC4.ini file... I wonder what put it in yours, Bob?

I was having the problem with the CTD's and more than not it had to do with the TCAS dll. I found that an addon scenery file was causing stability issues. So I removed that and also went with the Nhancer video settings recomended by NickN. My setup seems solid as a rock now.RichQ96006Gig RamVista 64Nvidia 9800 GTX+

Rich,Which addon scenery file/s did you remove??How did you confirm the addon scenery file was causing the TCAS.dll problem?Pete

I had downloaded some MCI scenery from Avsim- aig_kmci_kansas_city_ktc_fsx_default. It had two files one was the main airport and the other must of just added some extra scenery objects ( AIG_KMCI_ADE_KTC__Default_CVX.bgl ). I had noticed that I was having problems with the scenery ( lost cockpit textures ) so I removed just the extra scenery portion. After that I was having problems with the TCAS2v7 issue, usually on final. So I was about to give up, but having recently purchased a new video card, I decided to try the Nhancer program & NickN's settings. Everything was solid. I setup the MD-11 to fly for around 13 hours while I was at work holding near MCI and then had no problems flying approaches etc. after I got home. SO, I thought why not try the extra scenery portion again. Right away the TCAS issue resurfaced. After removing that, I was able to keep the MD-11 flying for about 16 hours straight with holds, missed approaches & flights into ORD with heavy traffic. Solid as a rock now... knock on wood.The combo for me was the Nhancer settings and the suspect scenery. I think maybe running Nhancer relieves some of the load on FSX?Rich

Thanks Rich,Some good detective work there.Unfortunately I don't have that scenery to remove, so I wouldn't know where to start.I already have nHancer set up as per NickN.Pete

I have only had this problem with the MD-11, not the 747.Anyone else found this?Pete
I had it rear it's ugly head again last night on the 747X at the end of a 10+ hour flight to FSDreamTeam's PHNL. I flew the last half of the oceanic portion of the route at 8X sim rate, then slowed back down about 200nm out. Everything looked good right until it froze 2-3nm out on ILS final and produced a CTD with TCAS2V7.DLL as the offending module.Seems this has been an intermittent issue for a lot of people even since the FS9 days. I still suspect the way UT II manipulates and injects traffic isn't sitting well with the module. I can't imagine how a scenery file would interact with TCAS to cause this...RegardsBob ScottColonel, USAF (ret)ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VColorado Springs, CO

That's FSDTs newest release, I haven't got it yet but I saw at least two threads related to it when it first came out. Do they have an update at their web site? I'm thinking about getting this scenery soon.

I do not have UT II and I still had the problem. I do have lots of WOAI traffic though.Pete
