Certain cockpit clickspots disappear (NOT EYEPOINT PROBLEM)

Recommended Posts

I'm having the problem of certain specific clickspots not functional in Prepar3d V3 with the new version. I'm familiar with the problem of the eyepoint position- where you're not close enough to a switch for the cursor to turn into a "hand." This is not that problem. For example, the seatbelt switch won't work, but the fuel switches will. Landing lights won't switch, but the turnoff lights will. No autopilot functionality, but FMS works. 

 

I did suffer a crash where the NVIDIA kernel driver "stopped responding and recovered" causing Prepar3d to crash, and it may or may not be related, while loading the 777. Ever since this crash, the clickspot problem has existed. I've installed the hack to keep the driver from crashing with windows 7 (microsoft fixit).

This is generally a simconnect issue.

 

Please verify you have all simconnect libraries installed, there should be these:

You can find these in the Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\redist\Interface folder; just install ALL of the simconnect versions, reboot, and things should be normal.

Reinstalling the simconnect + a restart fixed the problem! It must have gotten corrupted during the nvidia kernel crashes
