Thank you AVG for breaking ultimate traffic 2

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My Avg antivirus dectected one of the utltimate traffic2 for FSX (utii.dll) as a trojan. It was stored in quanrantine. I restored it but now UT2 no longer works and I get a message telling me that my license is invalid so the program is shut down. I cannot enter my license. I am sure it is a false detection and now my program  is broken.

Yup this happened to me too....but easily resolved (for me anyway!!)

 

Restore the dll.....but then you need to add the Ultimate Traffic folder that resides in your FSX (or whatever you named it - mine is:D:\FSX\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic 2) folder as an exception in AVG as AVG will continue to prevent the dll from running - hence you get the license invalid message.

 

To prevent AVG from picking this false positive up:

 

In AVG, go to Options, then Advanced Settings, then click on Exceptions, and the Add Exception tab - browse to the above folder, then click OK, then click Apply.

 

This process worked for me - fingers crossed it works for you too.

 

Good Luck.

 

Regards

 

Steve

Hello everyone I'd like to chime in here.  I was considering NOT to install Avg on my new computer that I am going to build solely for doing flight sims..  I have heard a lot of stories about how avg and other security systems have disrupted the program and the ad-ons.   I should be ok without installing any security if i only use the computer for going to flight sim websites right?  I use my laptop for all my general internet surfing.

Saucey12,

 

If you only use the computer for FS and visiting trusted websites I wouldn't bother with anti-virus. I removed it from my PC last year and everything is fine.

 

I do occasionally visit websites like AvSim and the BBC on the FSX PC but generally my browsing is done on a laptop and that has aVast.

 

Your call but if you are disciplined I would remove AVG and save yourself a lot of headaches.

Completely agree with this view - I removed AVG from my PC about 2 years ago and now only visit trusted FS related websites occasionally, without any problems. Like you, I use a protected laptop for most online work and purchases of FSX payware.

So could I buy a payware ad-on from my laptop, store it on a flash drive, and then upload it to my master PC that has the flight sim on it?  May seem like a dumb question, but I have been out of the loop on the sim world for ten years now, so you'd hafta bear with me..

Of course. That's how I buy and install all my software. Instead of a USB stick consider creating a network and sharing your Downloads bolder.

The EU Referendum is the only thing being discussed here but that is for another place, not here.

 

I fly Concorde and occasionally the 737-800. GA is too slow for me!

Oh yes :)  The 737 is one of the greatest ever American inventions!  Being used all around the world with efficiency!  I love the aircraft.  I am only 35 years old but I have flown on the 737-300 to 800 models here in the states..

And where might you stand on the EU issue?  Do you wish the UK to free itself from the EU?

Yes, but bear in mind that many developers / vendors require registration or validation of a payware addon before it can be installed. For example, developers like Carenado and Alabeo will require you to register most of their products by going online during installation on the computer on which the product is being installed. Other vendors such as Orbx/FlightSimStore offer the option of either online or offline registration. Offline installation of Flight 1 products is a little more complex, but is still feasible.

Very good sir I will keep that in mind,  I do not mind doing that, even running naked without virus and malware protection as long as the sites are not vulnerable to things to clog up the wheels.

Try a system restore to see if this helps.

A system restore is always the last option after all others are out, except formatting the drive.

Hello,

 

Yes I did that and it worked. Thank you. The problem lies with the software key check by the F1 website each time UT is launched. AVG and other antivirus programs detect this check as a trojan intrusion. That is my understanding of this issue.

 

before doing this work around I disabled AVG and UT worked (with the dll restored beforehand). The xclusion did the trick.

 

Cheers

I have just experienced a similar problem with UT2 (once again caused by a false positive from AVG), and making an exception for the Flight One Software folder does indeed appear to have resolved the issue. Thank God for that!

Yea because some people take it to extremes and rant on and on about it.  

 

On another note..The rig that you have (in your signature).. What flight sim program do you run? Or do you run more than one?  I am going to be in the process of building my own sometime soon. I plan on using FSX for starters.
