v2.5 and Windows 10

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

today I upgraded to Windows 10 and everything went well.

But due to P3D I got a problem: everytime I start P3D I choose a plane and airport and start it. Plane and airport are loaded as usual, but a few seconds after everything is loaded, P3D crashes to desktop.

Windows event manager shows:

 

Name der fehlerhaften Anwendung: prepar3d.exe, Version: 2.5.12946.0, Zeitstempel: 0x555f2e54
Name des fehlerhaften Moduls: menus.dll, Version: 2.5.12946.0, Zeitstempel: 0x555f2d41
Ausnahmecode: 0xc0000005
Fehleroffset: 0x000050e0
ID des fehlerhaften Prozesses: 0x1bd4
Startzeit der fehlerhaften Anwendung: 0x01d0ca3e104fa590
Pfad der fehlerhaften Anwendung: C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\prepar3d.exe
 

Anyone got a hint for me, what went wrong?

 

Thank you in advance.

Yes - P3D is not compatible with W10 - or W8 for that matter altho it will run on W8.

 

I assume you made an OS image so you can revert back.

Does windows 10 allow you to start a program in compatibility mode? May was to search for this.

Hi, I am using Windows 10 101240 and I have had no issues. Make sure you have the latest p3dv2.5.  I have p3d on a separate ssd and not connected to program files. Good luck.

Reload any addons you have as they may have got messed up I noticed this with one of my aircraft - reinstall aircraft all good again 

 

windows 10 is fine - if I were you and find that re-loading the culprit isint working - just re-install p3d fresh

 

Also make sure you deleted your shaders folder

 

As skywolf pointed out - should not be installed there - put it in main c:drive - hence a new install - use add remove programs (p3d) before doing that to free up license

As posted in the other thread I did not have any issues with windows 10 and p3d.In fact it was better in comparison (as far as fps was concerned) to windows 7.

Unfortunately all hints and tips did not work with my rig. Therefore I downgraded back to Windows 8.1. Now everything works again.

 

Thank you all for the help.
