FSX has problems with SB4 sbtrans10.dll

Recommended Posts

Hi.

After installing Win8, and reinstalling all sim applications (MSFS SP1 and SP2 plus SB4), FSX greets me with this message:

 

- - - - -

 

Flight simulator has detected a problem with a third-party software program (add-on):

Name: <Unknown>

Version: <Unknown>

Company. <Unknown>

File: C:\Microsoft Games\SquawkBox4\sbtrans10.dll

 

Do you want to run this software (not recommended)? /Yes - No /

 

To avoid seeing this message in the future, uninstall this program or disable its ability to start when running Flight Simulator. For more informatin about third-party programs, contact the publisher or see http:\www.fsinsider.com.

And it takes for ever to load the application.

 

I know there is a workaround suggested, to start SB4 outside FSX. But the the appwindow gets hidden like an ordinary window, and you need to "leave" FSX to speak to ATC, that is to say switch focus by Alt+Tab or with the mouse. It is very awkward.

 

I hope that SquawkBox developers will find a solution to this problem, because I don't think it works to load it outside of FSX.

 

Regards,

This is some advice for Windows 7 I don't know if in W8 is the same.

The developer of Squawkbox as finish is interest in simming so this is the last version.

I think you get corrupted in your install I don't know if it's Squawkbox or FSX in general.

Always install FSX out of program folder and with Admin right, I don't know about W8.

You have a problem with dll.xml file that you can find inside

C:\Users\xxxxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX

If you open it with TEXT editor there should be those line inside for Squawkbox.

 

<Launch.Addon>

<Name>SquawkBox Transponder</Name>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>

<Path>C:\SquawkBox\sbtrans10.dll</Path>

</Launch.Addon>

<Launch.Addon>

<Name>SquawkBox Internal Version</Name>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>

<Path>C:\SquawkBox\sbmod10.dll</Path>

</Launch.Addon>

<Launch.Addon>

<Name>SquawkBox AI Control</Name>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>

<Path>C:\SquawkBox\sbaicontrol10.dll</Path>

</Launch.Addon>

Always run out of FSX as suggested or you wil get always problem .

You can always try FSINN if you want but it's more difficult to setup.

Ciao

Fabrizia, thanks for your suggestion.

 

I checked my dll.xml file, and it seems to be correct even if it has parts for FSUIPC4 and IvAp as well.

 

What puzzles me is the lines

 

<Name>SquawkBox Internal Version</Name>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

 

I want it to be internal, it shows up in "Addons" menu. Shouldn't it be "True" for it to run properly? I think it is a nuisance to run SquawkBox from outside FSX. Might go for FSInn...

Had the same problem, solved!! 1. make an experiment with fsuipc version, 2. but I think helped me installation SB4 on C partition, earlier I installed in FSX folder and that was a fault.
