CTD when starting RCV4

Recommended Posts

This just started happening: it doesn't matter what a/c I have loaded. I load a flight plan into RCV4, start FSX. After pressing fly now, I press alt+enter to window fsx. As soon as I so much as click on the RCV4 window, FSX crashes. It doesn't seem to crash at other times.

 

I have

 

updated REX Essentials Plus

WoAi traffic files

Several add on airport sceneries

Updated nvidia graphics driver

Automationcore.dll

A machine with 16g of RAM quad core Intel processor 2.5 ghz nvidia gt870 graphics.

 

I just wondered if anyone had any thoughts before I dive into the CTD guide??

Forgot to mention optimized .cfg file with venetubo.

I need to add some info...

It does not seem to be related to RCV4.  If I alt tab and click on the REX weather window, it crashes instantly as well. 

I tried a clean boot.  No difference.

 

Here's an event log:

If that's not the right log, please let me know!

Thanks

 

<<<EDIT>>>

Even if nothing else is running (re: RCV4, REX), if I alt tab and even click anywhere on the desktop, I get the crash.  Wierd!  Frame rates are great!

Your crash was caused by the ntdll.dll. This is a system module and most of the crashes caused by this module are caused by too high/low voltages in your BIOS. If you recently overclocked or changed a setting in the BIOS, this is most likely the cause. There's another recent topic here too about this type of crash. You might want to take a look at that. Of course the AVSIM CTD Guide provides probable and known causes of crashes so it would be wise to check that out too.

Thanks for the reply. I haven't done anything to the bios, however, windows just updated itself recently. I'm running a Lenovo Y50 and so far, I have been very pleased with its performance; its a good travel companion (as I spend half my life in hotels). I will dive into the guide and report back; however, it's curious that it was working quite well before. I will have to back track and figure out what changed. FSX is like the Airbus. It's all about the voltage.

Jim, could you please point me to the topic you are refering to? Also, according to app crash view, I am getting a d3d9.dll error; but by far, it's the ntdll.dll that shows up most often.

 

Thanks

Thanks again Jim.  I deleted the automationcore.dll.  I also deleted my fsx config and let fsx build a new one.  That seemed to fix things!  Now I can alt enter and back without a crash.  Now I can move on with my life :rolleyes: .

Great news! Glad some of the suggestions worked. Rebuilding the FSX.cfg is probably the best "fix" around. Enjoy!
