P3D V3.1 Fatal Error PMDG T7

Recommended Posts

Good evening all.  I posted this topic in the P3D forum but wanted to double tap PMDG as well.  I know this is long and I am hoping it’s something stupid on my part, but I can’t seem to lock down this issue.  In the meantime I’m going to install another third party aircraft and see if I have the same problem.  That will help me determine if this issue is strictly with PMDG…




In order to install P3D V3.1, I deleted all P3D V.2 software and associated add-ons from my hard drive.  I left FSX on the hard drive \K as a backup so I could still fly if I had issues with P3D.  I did delete all of my FSX add-ons in order to leave space on my hard drive for P3D.  I ran P3D V2.5 with the same add-ons on the same system with no issues besides OOMs which are to be expected.




I installed P3D V3.1 on about 3 JAN.  I installed the ORBX products, REX, and ASN in the days following.  I flew quick flights with several default aircraft out of a few different default airports to test ORBX, REX, ASN etc. prior to installing the updated PMDG 777 product – no significant issues noted.  After installing the PMDG 777 I loaded the airplane from the main menu, ensured error logging was turned off in P3D, and ran the Simconnect .msi installers in specified P3D folders in accordance with PMDG’s guidance.  The PMDG aircraft will sit on the runway for as long as I want it to and all of the systems work fine (buttons knobs etc).  However, about one to two minutes after takeoff, P3D has a fatal error (see log).  The error always occurs at the same time. The fatal error occurs with or without ASN running, at different airports, and different weather conditions; I have not tested with default weather textures.  The airplane performs fine in flight with no systemic issues prior to the fatal error:

Possibilities that I don’t know how to fix:

Did something not get deleted properly from P3D V.2 that is causing a conflict?

Registry errors?

Is there an issue with installing al my P3D V3.1 and associated add-ons direct to my K drive and not C/Program Files (x86)?

Graphics card drivers?

P3D settings?  (I have not touched the .cfg)

PMDG settings? (I haven’t altered anything from the original download through the ops center)

Update - I had the same error with the Airbus X, so I don't consider this a PMDG issue.  If you have any ideas let me know...time to wipe everything and reinstall one at a time  :mad:
