FSX crash - Windows 8

Recommended Posts

I am getting frequent crashes...wondering if there is a solution.

 

I've been using A2A Cessna 172 (with July 2014 update) in free flight at highest realism and graphics settings....Computer is only about 2 months old, running Windows 8.1 (Asus G10AC, Intel Core i7-4770 @ 3.4 GHz, 8 GB RAM.  NVidia GeForce GTX 760 with 3 GB GPU).  Had infrequent crashes with FSX on this computer, nothing like what it is doing in the last few days.  Here's an error log entry:

Hi,

 

download the 'uiautomationcore.dll' from HERE and copy it into your FSX main folder. That will fix the problem.

 

Greetings

Windows 8 does not like the uiautomationcore.dll in the main fsx folder.

Says who? I have it in the FSX main folder for almost two years now and never had a problem. In fact, FSX crashes regularly under Windows 8 without the correct 'uiautomationcore.dll' in the main folder.

UiAutomationcore.dll v6.0.5840.16386 should be placed in the FSX program files folder (where we find FSX.EXE), dlls found there by FSX are loaded first. If it's not found there then UiAutomationcore.dll that comes with Windows will be loaded and in Win7 and Win8 it's not strictly compatible with FSX. I have found the wrong versions copied to the FSX folder which causes the same exception.

This solution does seem to work....I added this uiautomationcore.dll (version 6.0.5840.16386, 155kb) to FSX's main directory.  It was not there before.

 

I am at least getting to the SimConnect Error like I used to :-)  I practice crosswind landings repeatedly so I expect this error.

 

Thank you!

 

I had FSX on Windows 7 before also...it did crash sometimes, but not so often.  It was also fine until just 2-3 days ago on Windows 8.  I think some actions (perhaps more frequent use of right-clicks?) aggravates the crashes.

 

Whatever the reason is, I am just happy there is a solution.

There are several documented CTD's here in this forum where individuals have fixed their CTD's by removing the uiautomationcore.dll from their main fsx folder (with Windows 8 installed). Perhaps they had the wrong version; lots of things but it doesn't work for everyone, including me.

 

This solution does seem to work....

Good to hear you possibly have your problem fixed. Hope it stays that way.

I've been keeping that in mind Jim, I saw you posted about that before. There's certainly a possibility of some clashes there, I'll see if it comes up. All the best.

Just reporting back, I nearly forgot about this problem...FSX has been ROCK SOLID with Windows 8.1 since placing UiAutomationcore.dll (version 6.0.5840.16386, 155kb) in the FSX program files folder (where FSX.EXE is)!

 

I also haven't encountered SimConnect Error of late, but that's probably because I haven't restarted a saved flight over and over recently.  Moving on to cross country :-)
