EZDOK 1.17 Application Errors

Recommended Posts

Has anyone running EZDOK 1.17 noticed that during an FSX flight the the Windows Application log will have hundreds if not thousands of errors for EZDOK?

 

These errors are recorded continuously and never let up as long as FSX / EZDOK are running.  

 

The nature of these errors are probably due to EZDOK 1.17 using DMA (Direct Memory Access) as they indicate an attempt to write to an invalid memory address.

 

Also, it may be due to running EZDOK on a 64bit OS which would make sense as the memory address space is mapped differently.

 

The thing is that EZDOK seems to run OK in the sim but all these errors makes me wonder if there is some performance impact.

 

Anyway, I am seriously considering to give OPUS another try and removing EZDOK although it is an essential FSX addon IMO.

 

Any feedback regarding this would be appreciated.

 

UPDATE - After rolling back to EZDOK 1.15 the Application logs have been clear so we are sticking to that version for now.  Besides,  using DMA is something out of the 80's and is not a current programming standard.  Still going to give OPUS another go however.

 

 

Thanks

That is the funniest damn thing I've read in a while.

 

"DMA. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

Funny, but on the EZ-Dok Web page (if you can call it that), the latest version is 1.16.0. Where did you get version 1.17?

So, does it work, and are there all of the errors as posted by jjjallen?  I've been running 1.15 with no problems, and no one has ever sent out an upgrade notice for this software.  Amazing!

I never found a 1.16 version of EZDOK.  the current version on FLIGHT1 is 1.15 but you can get the 117 upgrade on the EZDOK forum page although now I don't recommend it.

 

Cheers

Jim, I switched to Opus cams quite some time ago, and noticed a 10% increase in performance by dropping Ezydok. And is one less DLL loading in FSX.

Make sure you download the latest beta. There has been many fixes and improvements since you may have tried it last.

Stephen is up front with support. As Opus use real accelerometer data for DHM, it is a lot more realistic IMHO.

That's interesting, i have 1.17 and i don't have that errors in event viewer during all flights.

I have some erros related to Ezdok, but from August. I have checked simconnect and FSUIPC logs for errors in August, and deleted all leftovers from dll.xml and xml.exe. No errors and logs since then.

 

BTW, 1.16 is official update and 1.17 can be found in forums only

Does OPUS work with TrackIR?

I don't have Opus. I'm using 1.17, and have had no errors at all.  I'm running WIN8, TrackIR 5, Active Sky 2012.

 

I've had version 1.17 for a while now, maybe three months or more.

Very interesting that no one else gets the errors that I'm seeing. I guess that some more testing is in order.

 

One question are you guys with 1.17 running a 64bit OS?

No errors at this end and I've been running v1.17 since it became available 3 years ago. And if you're not using the latest version, then you're missing out on several nice features only available in the latest version.

A Definitive Solution to the "World camera coordinates address is not found. Please contact EZCA support" error message for Windows 7 64bit after upgrading to EZDok 1.17.

 

I had this error and the solution may well be in a hundred different posts on the web but the trick is knowing specifically what file to change and a path to where this file is located.

 

Restart your system!

 

The Path (your mileage may vary :))

 

Start(button)/Computer/Open Drive "C"/Program Files (x86)/EZCA/

 

After you open the EZCA folder Right Click on "config.exe" go to "Properties" select the "Compatability" tab, select or check mark "Run this program as an administrator" click "OK".

 

Run or double-click "config.exe" follow the instructions.

 

Ureka! :) I hope.

 

If this helped let me know.
