FSX crashes due to MSVCR80.dll error

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I cannot complete a flight any more as I keep getting the following error:

 

Faulting application name: fsx.exe, version: 10.0.61637.0, time stamp: 0x46fadb14
Faulting module name: MSVCR80.dll, version: 8.0.50727.9185, time stamp: 0x554aef01

Report ID: 70d4c948-d12c-4028-8d0d-67f378a706dd
Faulting package full name:

I am pulling my hair out. I have googled the problem, but it appears a bit confusing for me.
 
Anyone who has had this problem and solved it, please let me know how to get rid of this error. It is driving me nuts, I cannot complete a flight.
 
I am running Windows 10, 64 bit.
 
Many thanks for any help.

I've taken this extract from Avsim CTD Guide for your guidance:

 

"MSVCR80.dll, MSVCR90.dll, or MSVCR100 – belongs to Microsoft Visual Redistributable C++ 2005, 2008, 2010 respectfully.  

 

1.  Run  the  Microsoft.net  Repair  Tool – Whenever  you  get  a  Microsoft.net  error  or Microsoft Visual C++ error (faulting module), run the Microsoft.net repair tool.

 

2.  Uninstall FSX SP2 if installed, uninstall it via the Windows Add/Remove program (it will not remove FSX, just SP2).   Restart your system.   Reinstall FSX SP2.   Restart your system.  

 

3.  Uninstall  FSX  Acceleration  if  installed,  do  the  same  procedure as  for  SP2 except remove  Acceleration,  Restart,  install  Acceleration,  Restart.   These  actions  will  not remove your configuration files like FSX.cfg, scenery.cfg, dll.xml, exe.xml but if you want to be safe, back them up first.

 

4.  If  the  above  does  not  work,  uninstall  Microsoft  Visual  2005,  2008,  or  2010,  as appropriate in  your Add/Remove Programs.    Go  to  the  website (see  section  above regarding Microsoft Visuals), download and reinstall."

I'm unsure about point #2 in the CTD extract I gave.   I've always thought that to remove FSX SP2 via the Add/Remove Programs, meant that FSX would be uninstalled completely.   So be mindful of that.

When you uninstall FSX, the latest SP will be removed and the entry in the Add/Remove Programs will change.  Before placing it in the AVSIM CTD Guide, I did what the guide states.  It's impossible to completely uninstall FSX via the Add/Remove Programs feature.  After there are no more entries in the Add/Remove Programs, you still have to go into the directories (including the hidden directories) to remove remnants of FSX that could harm future installations (i.e., uninstalling from the default fsx directories and reinstalling to non-default areas).

 

I might also add the CTD Guide provides the links to the Microsoft Repair site.  I actually had one of these crashes myself once and this fixed the problem for me.  Of course, there are so many possibilities for an error like this but our guide is based on research throughout the flight simulation community.  We believe we have the most extensive information available to fix CTD's/Freezes throughout the community with the AVSIM CTD Forum and the CTD Guide.

Only time I have encountered this Error has been when a "bad" .bgl file has been encountered with Photo Scenery. No matter how many times the flight is reset (back by 1 min) and re-flown the error will occur at the same point. I have to reset (back by 3 mins) and change the course by many degrees (45) and skirt the area. Then the flight will continue without incident.

 

The Horizon UK scenery has four such areas that I have encountered....there may be others.
