P3D V3.1 CTD minutes after takeoff

Recommended Posts

Good evening all. I posted this in the P3D forum yesterday and have not received a response so I'll try here.  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 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 drive) 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 had run 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 a registered FSUIPC, the ORBX products, REX, and ASN in the days following. I flew some quick flights with several default aircraft out of a few different default airports to test ORBX, REX textures with soft clouds, ASN etc; I had no issues.  However, after installing the PMDG 777 and Aerosoft A321 and trying flights with them, I started getting CTDs.  They were about one to two minutes after takeoff with PMDG and about 4 minutes after takeoff in the Aerosoft Airbus.  I can sit on the runway in either aircraft without the CTD for as long as I want.  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 Windows event log reads as follows:

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) and am running 3.1 with roughly the same settings that I ran 2.5

In the mean time, I'm going to install P3D 3.1 again, and try both airplanes with no other add-ons, then apply each add-on and continue to test.
