P3D crash after picking airport.

Recommended Posts

Here's the deal:

 

I pick my airport, gate, plane. I hit "OK" and the game crashes. No windows error or anything. Just goes back to windows.

 

I recently did an update from 3.0 to 3.2 using the install client method, meaning, I installed the ~150MB file from the p3d website, and just installed over my current version.

I did not uninstall the game, as I fear that all of the add-ons that I have will be void, as many developers say ONE PC ONLY in their policy.

 

Any tips or suggestions?

 

Thank you.

You are supposed to uninstall the client before installing the update client.     http://www.avsim.com/topic/484945-how-do-i-update-prepar3d-v3-using-the-new-installers/

Will the add-ons remain unaffected? Among airports, I have orbx global and vector, as well as ASN and REX.

Yes, read that thread I posted, it explains everything. If you have a program that uses a text window like GSX for instance, you also have to update content in the same way. At the point where you are now, I would just uninstall the client you have, and after doing that , install the new client and see if everything works. You will probably have to update ASN to the latest beta version too, and possibly FSUIPC, both of which are easy to do.
