Reality XP crash to desktop

Recommended Posts

So Im loving this plane so far! Absolutely excellent work by Carenado here!The plane runs flawlessly but one issue; when I want to use Reality XP's GNS 530W (installed via the CAR.XP exe) I cannot load the plane up, FSX just crashes and outputs "rxpGNS Failed to open GNS Simulation" a few times in the rxpGnsSim log.Im stumped here. Ive gotten the plane back up and running by reinstalling it again and leaving CARXP exe alone so Im stuck with the Carenado GNS.Anyone have any insight to this? I adore the GNS530W, I hate not using it!Cheers!Gordon

You may go to my documents (no, yours!) rxpGnsSimNonvol and delete the MEM files you see there. This should help if you are seeing the rather common CTD cause of corrupted files.Don't ask me why and how they get corrupted, but you can cure this if you delete them as they'll get rebuild then.

Copy the rxpgns.ini file from one of the planes that works, to the Malibu airplane folder.

Thanks for the replies guys. I had the same issue with RealAir's Duke Turbine but I *somehow* resolved that issue. Its funny the same CTD occurred with the PA46TI tried to clear out the Novol folder to no success this morning. There are no files in there ( I guess naturally since I keep CTD'ing )RXP seem to be absolutely woefull for support as I was trying to research this "rxpGNS Failed to open GNS Simulation", but it seems every thread has somebody jacking it with some other issue and everybody applies their ADHD, including the Devs lol *sigh*Anyways, /Rant...Ill try to copy the rxpgns.ini file right now

Moving the .ini file didnt workJetProp has two Panel folders one panel.cfg, with a bunch of .cfg files in there and the other Panel folder that resembles a regular folder. The regular Panel folder has RXPSTACK but no rxpgns.ini file to overwrite..Man Im so stumped lol!

You only want one rxpgns.ini file per aircraft.Put it in the aircraft folder (that is where the RXP configurator expects it) or in the regular panel folder,but not both.

Ok Ive done that and still get a CTD..Ive uninstalled and reinstalled both softwares a few times now, making sure every folder both installations were deleted and it still happens, so corruption is very unlikely.What makes me scratch my head harder is that both the B60 Piston and B60 Turbine work fine with the 530 :-/

Have you install a recent version of FSUIPC by any chance?, when I did that a few weeks ago my RXP 530 would no longer load into any of my aircraft. I had to go back to an earlier version 4.60. Although it didn't cause a CTD, just would not load the RXP 530, just a thought?Martin

This is what is my rxpgns.ini file for the Malibu.If you have a non-standard location for the Trainer, there needs to be a filled in "trainer=" line.[GNS530]Popup=10020AutoPilotMode=2Radios=1LinkCdiKey=OnAutoApproach=OffLinkToVor=OnAutoCourse=OnLcdStyle=offAutoWidth=500AutoHeight=360Trainer=NoKeyClick=OffDisableRxTx=OffAutoPowerOn=OnGndSpdFromDeltaLatLon=Off

Also try this...start from the standard panel and edit the panel.cfg file (in the panel folder) by hand.Do not touch the panel.cfg folder!In the panel.cfg file, change Window05 by removing the ; in the rxpgns530 line.Save the file and load the airplane. Does that crash FSX?If not, hit shift-6 and see if it displays the RXP 530W.Lastly, go look in the rxpgns.dll.log file in your Documents folder and see what info it contains.

Ok Ive tried editing the panel.cfg to no availThe only thing that RXP has ever output to the RXPGnsSim log file is "rxpGNS Failed to open GNS Simulation" many times.Again, the Carenado GNS works fine but as soon as I touch the CAR.XP exe I get the CTD. So, it appears the connection between the PA46T and RXP is the problem, not the reality xp installation, as proven by it working on other aircraft.

Sorry to hear that it didn't work out so far. That MEM file thingy really is a standard with the RXPs, though I don't know about the actual cause.From memory, there were some other folks with CTD errors on the later Carenado planes with the 3D model RXP option. Maybe some of the other threads can help you. Namely in the A36 and C337 sections.

Don't use the CARXP option, try doing it by hand as I suggested above..Do you have your Garmin trainer in a non-standard location, by any chance?

I read in another forum, for the B60T, that some guy had success moving the Garmin trainer to his C: root directory but the thread pretty much stopped there lolThe trainer lines in the rxpgns.ini is blank. I filled it in with the location of the trainer but it still CTDsEDIT: ok I tried standard and non-standard trainer installations and regardless of where it was installed to, it CTD'd.

Ok we're getting places I think...I went back over this entire thread again, uninstalled and reinstalled the plane fresh. Uninstalled and reinstalled RXP freshEdited the [window05] in panel.cfg to gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS530, 0,0,512,512 which resulted in the picture below when I press shift-6pa46trxp.jpg

Could that be a license problem of the RXP software? Just guessing though.But you say.

not the reality xp installation, as proven by it working on other aircraft.
So I'm puzzled, to say the least.

Are you saying that the RXP GNS530W works just fine in other aircraft, but it comesup as in your picture in the Carenado with the same rxpgns.ini file? That would be mostpuzzling..

Pretty much yes.In fact I was just flying the RXP GNS530W with the Seneca II and the Duke B60T about an hour ago.EDIT: Ok now all the RXP enabled aircraft fail to load.Holy crap! why the heck is this such inconsistent software for me?! Unbelievable!!

I really appreciate your help, Bert!Im going to try uninstalling FSX completely and formatting its drive for a reinstallation.If that doesnt work, Ill concede. Im so frustrated over this

Don't uninstall FSX! That is just going to be a lot of work for no gain!Go one step at a time... re-install the RXP GNS gauge and test it with several airplanes.When that is all good, put it in the Malibu, one step at a time.. don't make too many changes all at once!!

Both RXPGNS.ini files in the planes I have working and the P46 are identical, and since we know RXP actually works, it must be some sort of panel.cfg issue.That, logically in my mind, seems to be the only link.
