Recommended Posts

I have installerad aerosoft Airbus and pmdg 737/777 for p3d v3. And When I start the flight with the pmdg it's black screens and all buttons are non-clickable. Same with the Airbus. But after I installed simconnect, P3D folder > redist > Interface > FSX-SP2-XPACK > retail > lib > then install SimConnect.msi. And now the Airbus work perfect but when I load a pmdg aircraft and start the flight I just hear a click and than p3d crashes. I have tried reinstall but doesn't work. In fsx I also hear a click and than the aircraft loading. But now it crash. Pls help.

Not asking you to change you login name - simply type your name at the bottom of each post.

 

Did you install ALL of the SimConnects, as referenced in that link?

Just remember to write your name in your post when in PMDG forums... like this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib There it's one .msi file called simconnect and that one I installed.

So I installed one simconnect.

You have to load the PMDG planes via the SHOW_SCENARIO_WINDOW=0 change the 0 to 1 before you load. This is in your main P3D cfg. When you get the scenario screen select your PMDG plane and load it directly. It preserves the Simconnect settings that PMDG looks for. When you load from another plane like a default, the connection is lost. Just make sure you have run your Simconnect set up first as per PMDG instructions.

Then make sure you run the simconnect setup as per instructions here in the PMDG forum.


These came with the updated P3D V3 files, it's a readme file.

 

1) Navigate to this folder:
    <P3D root folder>\redist\FSX-RTM\lib
     
2) Run the SimConnect.msi installer file inside the folder.
     
3) Navigate to this folder:
    <P3D root folder>\redist\FSX-SP1\lib

4) Run the SimConnect.msi installer file inside the folder.

5) Navigate to this folder:
    <P3D root folder>\redist\FSX-SP2-XPACK\lib

5) Run the SimConnect.msi installer file inside the folder.


Once you have all six steps completed, you should be all set!

edit: the video is after the scenario has been loaded and the sound is the way I hear, then crashes it.

 

Earlier, you said you installed only one SimConnect file after I asked if you'd installed all of them. Later, Lee posted the entire SimConnect guide. In order to help you here, this needs to be a two way street. If we ask questions, we absolutely need to have them directly answered before we can mark that off and continue on to the next possibility. Have you installed all of the SimConnects, or just the one?

 

Additionally, if you're into making videos, I think a much more important video would be you showing us how you load your sim.

p3d still crashes. Here is an video https://youtu.be/-NjnnD1JRpU.

When the video ends is when p3d crashes

edit: the video is after the scenario has been loaded and the sound is the way I hear, then crashes it.

It is possible you have a faulty installation of your PMDG craft or even of P3D. Try uninstalling the PMDG completely and then make sure you download the current most up to date installers from the PMDG site and start over. Make sure you have the newest FSUIPC and if you use FSDT products, make sure it is the current and most recent Addon manager you have installed.

Now I have three simconnect installed, as Lee posted. I have tried to reinstall pmdg and the three simconnect but doesn't work. So maybe I should reinstall p3d. Also have the latest version of the pmdg aircrafts. So I don't know what the problem is.

Here is an new better video showing the crash

 

This absolutely looks like either FlexNET has been disabled, or you don't have ALL of the SimConnect files installed. It isn't only a single SimConnect that needs to be installed.

Does it work if I install the pmdg fsx version with estonia migration tool into p3d v3.

And I have installed three simconnects 

1) Navigate to this folder:

    <P3D root folder>\redist\FSX-RTM\lib
     
2) Run the SimConnect.msi installer file inside the folder.
     
3) Navigate to this folder:
    <P3D root folder>\redist\FSX-SP1\lib

4) Run the SimConnect.msi installer file inside the folder.

5) Navigate to this folder:
    <P3D root folder>\redist\FSX-SP2-XPACK\lib

5) Run the SimConnect.msi installer file inside the folder.

 

 

Should I install all of the simconnects I can fing in p3d root folder/redist

No. Absolutely not. That is a serious violation of the EULA.

Hi Albin,

 

It can be frustrating if things won't work

 

I don't know if this helps, but if you look in your configuration panel under programs, there must be 4 " microsoft flight simulator connect client" entries and 1 Microsoft ESP Simconnect. I don't know if the last one is needed for FS or P3d. But the other 4 I am certain.

If you miss some the plane doesn't work ok.

 

And I think no need to tell you but sometimes P3D starts with the new PMDG installed but not asking for an activation.

You have to change multiple times different PMDG planes before the activation window start or sometimes it is hidden behind another screen.

Be sure you have activated

 

Succes

I think it's this simconnect <P3D root folder>\redist\FSX-SP2-XPACK\lib, causing the problem/crash. Will it work without installing that jsut these.

 

 

1) Navigate to this folder:

    <P3D root folder>\redist\FSX-RTM\lib
     
2) Run the SimConnect.msi installer file inside the folder.
     
3) Navigate to this folder:
    <P3D root folder>\redist\FSX-SP1\lib

4) Run the SimConnect.msi installer file inside the folder.

 

if not how can I fix so p3d not crash when FSX-SP2-XPACK simconnect is installed.

Refer to the Crash to Desktop forum for assistance.

Don't really remember but you can try this.

1. Uninstall all pmdg stuff.

2. Intall it agian with latest verisions. 

3. Install simconnect that can be find in p3d root folder-redist-interface or something like that. Now you see diffrent folders. Install the msi file in folders ESPv1, FSX-RTM , FSX-SP1 and FSX-SP2-xpack.

4. Now you schould have the correct simconnect installed and the 737/777 planes. 

 

Start P3D and see.

Hope it work :smile:
