weather.dll causing crash

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

 

I've been having this problem where i either takeoff or land and flight sim just crashes and says its not responding.

 

After checking the event log it seems its being caused by weather.dll. The following is the error i get.

 

Faulting application name: fs9.exe, version: 9.1.0.40901, time stamp: 0x4135a208

Faulting module name: Weather.DLL, version: 9.1.0.40901, time stamp: 0x4135a88e

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Fault offset: 0x00002076

Faulting process id: 0x970

Faulting application start time: 0x01cdd17f29272817

Faulting application path: C:\FS2004\fs9.exe

Faulting module path: C:\FS2004\MODULES\Weather.DLL

Report Id: dd308b7f-3d76-11e2-b761-ec9a74558b73

 

I have no idea what i can do to fix this, I'm unable to play the game as it will crash either when i takeoff or land.

 

I really hope someone can help me, Thank you very much.

If you do have FS9 v9.1 installed ( right click on the FS9.exe / properties / version / to verify - file version should read '9.01.040901.01' ) I think the quickest attempt to repair if it is indeed a faulty weather.dll would be to use the uninstaller supplied with the update. Uninstall the update, that will restore the v9.0 dll(s) to the modules folder, then install the 9.1 update again. One more thought, . . . if you are using DXT clouds you need to have render to texture switched on in the Sim. Try loading a flight with 'clear' weather and see if you still have the crash. While you are at it make a backup of your FS9.cfg file and remove the fs9.cfg to your desktop and force FS9 to build a new one. If that solves your crash you can always use the backup to transfer your preferred settings to the new one.

 

It is odd the you could fly enough to land somewhere before the fault occurs. Be sure to try a different aircraft and airport well away from where you have been starting.

 

Also please report if you have a third party weather program installed or any texture replacements.

 

I hope this will help you.

 

Regards,

Mel
