P3d + Windows constant troubles

Recommended Posts

(fresh windows 10 install)

 

I'll try and keep it short and sweet and I would love some advice to people who have it running with no issues.

 

Windows 10 and P3d are not working together at all and this includes a lot of my addons.

 

1) P3d going between 'full screen' to an app in the taskbar completely freezes the simulator. I can click on menu's etc etc but nothing in the sim moves, it's like it's paused (no, I have unchecked the option to pause on task switch)

 

2) Ezdok; The main exe in the C drive instantly crashes when opening, i've tried everything, ran it in every windows config. Nothing.

 

3) Rex texture direct crashes after inputting the p3d directory into the options and then switching to an app below.

 

4) There seems to be a ghost mouse that's off centre when in the pmdg fmc. I can see it flickering to the right.

 

 

This is just so far, and I am just feeling like i've upgraded a pc for nothing. Very dissappointed at this stage and if anyone has got the above working, I would love to hear about it.

 

Kind regards,

 

Alex

Yes everything works perfectly for me in WIN10 Pro clean install, P3D v.2.5, REX, ASN ALL ORBX sceneries, PMDG, A2A, you name it. NO problem what so ever.

 

I have also used P3D together with WIN10 BETA versions since several months back without problems.

I am honestly lost Jack. This whole OS is bug ridden. Even chrome pinned to the taskbar doesn't open (Have to right click open new window).

 

I did the upgrade path from windows 7 but starting to regret ever moving over.

 

Any troubleshooting tips?

My Crome and all programs on the task bar open as usual. I strongly disagree with you about the OS being "bug ridden". Please don´t misunderstand me now but I think you screwed it up when you upgraded, not the OS. Simple solution, reinstall with a clean install, that is what I did.

I don't know how that is possible. But anyway, I am going back to windows 7. To see if I can replicate these issues. Will report back

I guess what surprises me is when someone does an update on a brand new OS, and runs into problems, and the reaction by some is " Hey it works for me, so you must have done something wrong". In all experiences of software problems  that I have run into and I have been working with computers since 1985, problems don't strike everyone. If they did, the developers or the initial beta testers would have fixed them before release. What usually happens is some percentage of new users run into problems and that is the main reason why I don't upgrade until the new OS has a proven track record. If way less than 0.1% of people installing Windows 10 have problems, that is still a huge number since there are about 1 1/2 Billion users of Windows in the world.

 

Just today I have read posts on Facebook after users  installed  Windows 10 of, stutters, crashes, EZdok problems, joystick problems, driver problems,  scenery loading  problems, P3D problems, FSX problems, etc...., and many people pointing out that they only way they could fix their particular issue(s) was to roll back to Windows 7, because the help that is possible  from Microsoft is zero. The IT person that works for the company I work for recommends making an image of your hard drive if you must upgrade to Windows 10, so you can get back to square one if it screws up.  He also recommends waiting.  Some people have even had to wipe their hard drive completely because the rollback function in Windows 10 didn't work either, and reinstall everything.  Talk about nightmare. This will probably go on for quite a while until patches are released to fix these issues.  This happens with all new software, and that is why there are almost always patches released.  To claim that there are no bugs in Windows 10 is ridiculous. They are already working on a patch now that will be released in October.

I think you need to try a little housekeeping first.

 

1) check all drivers are up to date, and win 10 compatible

 

2) install DirectX runtime's

 

3) ensure you have necessary Visual Studio Redists etc

 

4) install p3d vanilla and see if it has problems first

 

Lastly what are your specs? Have you overclocked?

Until the company making the addons announces they now support Win 10, stick with what they do support, makes life so much easier!

Not all upgrades go well just do a clean install, win 10 is solid

If anything, Windows 10 is Windows 8.1 with a few cosmetic changes. If I didn't know it was a new OS, I probably couldn't tell that it was. It certainly isn't "bug ridden".

WIN10 is NOT a WIN 8 with "with a few cosmetic changes". I think you have missed almost everything about WIN10. How about reading a little about it on the net?

Guess you didn´t read the text.

 

----------------------------------------------------

Unlike Windows 8, Windows 10 actually feels designed for a PC with a keyboard and mouse. Windows 7 users will be much more at home with Windows 10, but there are still some big changes.

If you’re a Windows 7 user, you might be surprised to see just how much has changed after you upgrade. Thankfully, there are no weird hot corners to learn.

Suit yourself. What great performance or work flow benefits does it provide? Don't say DirectX 12, because no flight sim uses that. Is it because they brought back the start menu from Win 7? Great advance.

Thats one of the benefits in a democracy, we are allowed to make choices. Welcome to reality in a few years when time has catched you up and the rest of the word has moved on to WIN12.  :Doh:

Microsoft has clearly stated that Win 10 is the last PC OS from them. BTW, I have Win10 installed. The whole process was like trading in a 2005 car for an identical 2006 model that somebody found in a barn with no miles.

I agree with you, and another problem is the 2006 model possibly doesn't like some of the accessories that were in you 2005,   :Tounge:  Main difference I see in W10 is it has that " Should be on a Tablet look , which windows 8 tried to start. Lets face it, most people now, other than for work, are using tablets and smart phones for much of the internet activity. Microsoft is really pushing their Surface Pro 3, which to me is an overpriced tablet. Windows 10 fits right in with that look.  They are going to put Windows 10 on their phones ( which nobody buys) , their Tablets, and  X box . Jack of all trades, master of none.
