You'll want to contact PMDG Support.

 

We have a very large number of 777 users now and that's never been reported.

 

Something is wrong with your PMDG 777.

 

You might want to try re-installing the 777.

 

And maybe ASN if you're using it too.

Hi,

 

you're saying that "many many many pmdg customers have this bug".

This is not FS2Crew's fault. Something is wrong with your 777. Are you running the latest versions with all the service packs/hotfixes?

Hi !

 

Do you use ActiveSky Next with the PMDG triple 7 ?

If so there is a Service pack available (a new one). I've make the update today, all is going fine.

Did you test the WX radar by yourself ?

I did it myself and no crash.

 

cheers

Sorry, but contacting PMDG is all I can suggest.  Re-installs usually fix these types of issues.  It's not an FS2Crew issue.

 

In the meantime, just do not run the PF events.

i try to reinstall my 777

What do you mean by this "I try", you either uninstalled  the t7  and re installed it there is is no middle ground here.

 

Have you tested  the wx weather radar button   test option without starting  fs2crew and does it  fail if it does  than its not fs2crew  which is causing  it

Having the same prob Bryan.  I can do the wx test manually and all is good if that tells you anything.  Pretty sure my install is OK as I have latest from PMDG and ASN and am having no probs otherwise. Hate to reinstall since it's running so good(plus I'm lazy :lol: ). Otherwise I'm loving all the cool new stuff ya did :wub: .  

 

Thanks

Steve

All FS2Crew does is press the WX test button via the SDK.  Very simple.

 

Our user based for the 777 is now very large, and only 2 people reported this.

 

 

I'll ask PMDG if they have any ideas.

Make that 3 people, Bryan.  Have yet to complete preflight with FS2Crew 777 for the above reason, test WX crashes 777.  Reinstalled ASN (with the latest update) and PMDG 777.  Otherwise EXCELLENT program... if I could get past the preflight.  Is there a way to circumvent this checklist requirement?

It's built into the flow so the only way to avoid it is to not run the PF Events.

 

I've emailed Robert Randazzo and am waiting on a reply to see if they have any experience with it.

 

Can you run the weather test manually?

 

Make sure the FO's EFIS is set to display Wx.

 

Just press the weather test button once... then press it again 15 or so seconds later to stop it.

No, can't run the wx check manually.  I'll start again not using the PF.

 

 

Please check the PMDG forum as well, as this subject is also being discussed there.

 

This appears to be a known bug in the PMDG 777 itself.

 

It seems to affect people using Vista, which would explain why so few people have it.

The problem is in the PMDG 777 itself.  Based on what I read in the PMDG forum, it's some weird Vista memory issue.

FS2Crew V1.1 will add an option so the Weather test is not run.

 

ETA on V1.1:  Next week.

Not a single issue since first install when the FO does his weather radar check as part of his flow. Not using ASN.

Rick, do you use Vista?

 

Steve

No, Windows 7 64-bit Professional.

There's a big thread on the PMDG forum about this issue...  it's out of FS2Crew's control.

 

But to re-iterate, V1.1 has a CFG option so the Wx test will not be run if so desired.

I am having the same issue here.  System will crash (showing FSX fatal error) when FS test the wxr.

Running on Vista

I have the latest version of ASN.

However FSX will not crash when the FO test the wxr when ASN is not running.

Any idea?

That is part of the FO's flow after he comes back from his walk-around, and I too, with no weather engine, have no issues. Do not see where the PF tests the wxr to cause a CTD.

This is discussed on the PMDG forum.

 

There seems to be an issue with the Wx Test in the PMDG 777 that affects Vista users.
