ATC.dll Crash. Should I worry?

Recommended Posts

Afternoon from the Big Easy,


So last night, I finally managed to rid myself of the ntdll.dll crashes associated with My Traffic only to eventually have my lovely NGX flight to San Antonio interrupted mid flight by a random CTD. The culprit of the crash was the ATC.dll. Based on a little research last night, there seems to be a lot of confusion on this one.


My question is; should I be worried and start troubleshooting or what not? Most of what I found suggested its a very random CTD caused by conflicting frequencies. Its never happen before and apparently its quite possible it won't happen again.


But knowing my luck with FSX, it will probably happen again tonight immediately following 30 minutes of detailed planning and 30 minutes of pre-flight operations and 3 miles of taxiing out.


Thoughts? Suggestions?



Thanks as always.

Here's what the AVSIM CTD Guide says:


ATC.dll – Three possible solutions –


• It occurs on a change of frequency (TWR to GND for example) and is associated with other frequencies used in your plan. Try entering removeatc=yes in the General section of FSUIPC.INI.

• There are minor issues where the file atc.dll, responsible for containing the viewing graphics display during game play, encounters errors in displaying multiple image streams, especially when it renders multiple overlays. If you have multiple displays and/or multiple Windows open, there is probably a conflict or problem with the configuration. Troubleshoot.

• Make sure your memory modules in your BIOS are properly configured (i.e., match timings and voltages as some BIOS have been known to not manage these settings properly). See CPU-Z, SPD Tab and make sure settings are the same in the BIOS.


Best regards,
