I have all 3 installed with no problems with CTD's. At first I had issues but after getting rid of the ENB mod all my problems went away. Jim

I was fine on hotfix 2, but now I have had to lockups after installing hotfix 3.Same airport twice, just locks up and the plane just hits the ground. Andy

Hotfix3 was the first fix i applied. Introduced stutters and other minor oddities. No CTDs, no severe freezes though.Made a compelete deinstall of the NGX, and deleted DEM folder manually following the deinstall routine.Downoaded the latest BasePackage Full Installer and run it. The NGX is fluid and stable again now.dance.gifIt took me <20 minutes and should be worth a try for everyone encountering stutters after applying the standalone HotFix3.

Yes I think I will try this route then later - downloading the complete new base packagae with hotfix 3 included.

Have any of you tried UIAUTOMATIONCORE.DLL Fix? If you right lick your menus about 20 to 30 times in FSX or something around that it will crash to desktop. Its a well known bug in FSX. Another thing would be to start fresh and reinstall with the latest NGX installer that has all the hotfixes in one installer. Some times going from one Hotfix to another can cause problems. When I had Hotfix 2 and Installed Hotfix 3 I had a APU fail issue that would not go away no matter what I tried. Okay so I had all the 3 hotfixes right and then I had the problem. Now I uninstalled and went to the PMDG site logged into my account and downloaded the PMDG NGX again and installed it. The new installer had all 3 hotfixes and my APU problem went away. See my point here? So try installing with the full installer and see how that goes?

The only issue I have is when I go End Flight, it always comes up with an errorand FSX will restart again. I ghave been getting that from the beginning and also with Hotfix 3.I like Hotfix 3 because of the few little things it fixed.eg. Mins knob.............Single Channel instead of CMD........Terrain.........etc. Fred.

Strange.....I did the whole download thing with all fix's....now I am missing right side doors. I have cargo but no controls for the doors...also getting 10 second freezes one or two times each flight. Furthermore, I have no aircraft on scope even when warning appears "traffic". So close, yet so far......PMDG, got any ideas!

Waiting for SP1. People have heard my scotch analogy before, but here it is again. Sure, the 3-yr Highland can get the job done, but an 18-year Speyside tastes so much better. Which is simply another way of saying that I am quite content waiting for PMDG to develop and refine their product updates in SP1. Trevor

Only one frozen panel but none since HF1 but now have Hotfix 3 installed. BTW, is this poll only for those that are experiencing CTD's ?
